I would never recognize a song as being from Twilight and tbh I really doubt most people would. Was it written specifically for the movie? Is there any song that’s really associated with any of those movies unless you were in them? It’ll be fine.

jennkneefur :  twilight is cringey, but the soundtracks are full of really great music. It’s like, the only part of the movies that are good 😂 if you love the music, use it. Most people won’t recognize it or care, and if they do? Not their wedding. We used the theme song to Jurassic Park!

I feel like your wedding guest population probably won’t have a ton of people who are actually into Twilight enough to actually recognize that song. (But you know them best!)

As someone who didn’t watch any of the movies or read any of the books, the only song I somehow know was from the movie is A Thousand Years.

Is it FROM Twilight or is it a pre-existing song that Twilight used? If someone is deep enough into Twilight that they recognize the soundtrack then they souldn’t be judging you for liking a song from the soundtrack. But I couldn’t even tell you songs from most of the movies I DO like.

As someone who was once obsessed with the books and movies, I offer my perspective. I think it’s a beautiful song and even if someone were to recognize it from the movie I doubt it would distract them. They’re all going to be focused on you walking down the isle the music is just frosting on the cake. If you love the song I say go for it!

I would use it. My cousin and her husband left the alter to “A whole new world” obviously Disney lovers and we all loved it and thought it was cute. Everything might not be for everybody but it’s more about you and your guests won’t be relfecting on it like it’s a big deal. Another friend walked to Harry Potter theme! Don’t be afraid to do you. 😊

Go ahead and use it! I have 4 out of 5 of the movie soundtracks and even I wouldn’t recognize a song at a wedding as being from Twilight. 

Most people don’t pay any attention to who does what, musically. There are those who don’t recognize Elvis or Michael Jackson when they hear them.

The only people who will recognize it are people who watched Twilight.  And who are they to tease you about it, then?

I’ve never seen Twilight so it wouldn’t even cross my mind.

If you like the song, go with it.

I just looked up and listened to the song and I don’t think it’s all that distinctive-sounding. Sounds like a generic romcom background music and I doubt anyone would recognize it. Use away!

I’ve not seen twilight, the only song I know from it is a thousand years (from Spotify, and from my mum saying I should “user the twilight song!”). I don’t think any guests who haven’t seen it will recognise it as such!

Anyone who will recognize it as “from twilight” doesn’t really have the high ground to cringe

Spouses/parentsof die hard fans may be the exception.

If you love it, use it! There are some really good songs on the Twilight soundtrack, as awful as the movie itself is. 🙂 Instrumental versiions can be really lovely as well.

I agree that it is a pretty song but it sounds like a generic instrumental/typical wedding song – I highly doubt anyone would connect it to Twilight.
