@ifoundmyprince:  I’m walking down the aisle to that exact song. Some churches have requirements about what you can walk down the aisle to, but otherwise..no..it’s your wedding and you can walk down the aisle to whatever you want.

@ifoundmyprince:  Not necessarily, why can’t you do the little bell ringer who skips down the aisle announcing that the bride is coming? I’ve seen some people do it with a little girl who’s similar to the flower girl, but she holds a sign if she may be too bashful to talk.

 

And the guests closest to the entry generally know to stand up whenever the bride enters, meaning that the rest of the guests will follow suite.

At the end of the day, “It’s your thang, do what you wanna do!”

@ifoundmyprince:  If the church won’t allow you to do it, then you’ll have to capitulate, or really really fight for it, and still maybe lose.  If it’s not in a church, you have free reign to do as you please with the music.  It’s not your mom’s wedding.  Listen, nod, smile, thank her for her input, and then do whatever the hell you want anyway.

@ifoundmyprince:  It will depend on where you are getting married.  I know for when we got married. The pastor had to approve the music first it had to fit with the church. And this is coming from the most radical ELCA Lutheran church…

Also walking down the aisle to that song! My dad wanted the traditional “here comes the bride” and I refused! I say go for it!

Everybody knows when to stand up. Mine was way less traditional than that and everybody stood up.

 

This was my song:

@ifoundmyprince:  I would talk to the pastor who is officating.  Since he/she will be the one at the actual ceremony

@ifoundmyprince:  These things usually vary from church to church, and pastor to pastor.  Best to ask them.  We’re getting married in the Catholic Church, where it is standard practice for the pastor and/or parish music director to approve your choices.  We have been told by our parish that secular music is fine, as long as “God would like it.”

@ifoundmyprince:  No. It’s YOUR wedding. Walk out to whatever YOU want to. 

If you’re concerned, you could always ask the officiant to ask the guests to “please stand” before you walk down the aisle.
