When we were planning on doing our regular ceremony, I was going for kind fo the same idea. I wanted more traditional with a modern twist. I was pretty set on having only instrumentals to hold onto the traditional aspect, but add a bit of modern flair

I was going to use “Love Story by Taylor Swift’ performed by the Piano Guys for the bridal party. 

And then for my processional I was going to use “A Thousand Years by Christina Perri” performed by The pIano guys


I hope this helps!

@Sevillealaube:  We used an arrangement of an Alasdair Fraser/Natalie Hass tune, “Rob Fraser’s Welcome to San Francisco.” It’s a recently-composed Scottish fiddle tune, but it has a gorgeous melody. An organist friend of mine arranged it for us for organ, violin, and cello – if you listen to the link, imagine it a good bit slower and more stately, without the percussion. There’s also this YouTube clip  that gives a better idea of the pace, but you might want to only listen to the first 30 seconds or so. (The bagpipe is not in tune with the strings, so when it comes in, it gets pretty cringeworthy.)

Telemann’s “La Grace” is a lovely and not-overused classical piece for weddings; Bach’s “Arioso” is another, and Handel’s “Largo” from Xerxes
