I think he saw a girl in a cafe that he visited everyday. He has this perfect fantasy of what their love will be like if he ever actually gets the nerve to talk to her.

What’s your take?

The video shows what @SoontobeMrsA: describes, so that’s probably it. It’s a beautiful song, and we’re considering using it for our first dance, but it’s probably going to be overplayed at weddings really fast. πŸ˜‰

@SoontobeMrsA:That’s what I always thought too! I’m walking to this song even though I know it’s going to be overdone at weddings. I love it and that’s what matters!

I am walking down the aisle to this song! I love it. I am hoping everyone just ignores the line about the cafe. I am worried not enough of it will be played if my bridal party uses a different song to walk down to cuz how long will it really take me to walk down? A min max? Yet I really want my own song to announce my entrance. Anyone else have this issue?

@7-9-11bride: I’m not sure what the lyrics mean because I never really listen to that song. But it’s beautiful! What you could do is have the song set up to start where you want most of it to play. Start playing it right after the last Bridesmaid or Best Man walks, give time to close the doors, and re-open them (if you’re in a church). Then walk down the aisle, take you time! At the end of the aisle stand there for a few seconds to let the lyrics set in. Then fade! I’m thinking it should give you at least a minute or so of the song! πŸ™‚

We’re using this song too! I bought the music for our harp player (random I know.. but Fiance was sold when he found out she could play Stairway to Heaven). πŸ™‚

I am hopping onto that bandwagon too, I wanted it for my wedding party’s processional since the first time I heard it !  I am walking into the bridal march on piano though.

To me those lines are also sentimental. Me and Fiance met in a “cafe” like atmosphere, I was a teen working a job in food service  years and years ago and he had to work up the nerve to ask me on a date πŸ™‚

It was in the running to be our first dance song but the moment Fiance and I heard it on the bachelor we looked at each other and immediately crossed it off the list. It’s definitely a pretty song but will be very overplayed at weddings.
