Listening to Pandora while working and Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s version of “Over the Rainbow” came on… the island sounding version with the ukulele… I know it’s probably been done already but I teared up as I realized that this is the song I will walk down the aisle to! We’re getting married in Jamaica, by the way, in June!
What have/are all you other ladies planning on walking down the aisle to that is non-traditional? First dances? Father/daughter dances? Just wanna hear everyone’s cool ideas!

@CaressaW: Good choice!
I’ll be walking down the aisle to “Songbird” by Eva Cassidy. Our first dance will be “All I Ask of You” – Emmy Rossum version. Father/daughter dance will maybe be “The Prayer” by Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion. 🙂

@berkie… I love Emmy Rossum, I’ll have to look up her version and listen to it, I bet it’s beautiful!

Princessamy I had a hard time finding songs as well, until I just happened to hear them at some point… when I heard the songs they clicked! Our first dance will be to “Us Time” by Stoney LaRue… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUuvsC8kFHc he begins the song at 2 min and 50 seconds into the video.
Are there restrictions on what you can play in a Catholic church?

@CaressaW: That’s too funny because I just decided yesterday I’m going to walk down the Aisle to the song! “Wizard of Oz” was my all time favourite movie as a child so “Over The Rainbow” in this modern way is just beautiful and perfect! Good choice! 🙂

My bridesmaids walked down to a string version of My Immortal by Evanascene. I walked down the aisle to Christmas Cannon Rock. It starts out very peaceful and then added in is an electric guitar. It was really cool, still tasteful though, and a total surprise.
