I am walking down the aisle to Somewhere over the Rainbow on Acoustic guitar!

I love that song by the fray – so beautiful – I love your choice! I would bawl my eyes out if I was watching you walk down the aisle to that song… happy loving tears!!!!!

I want to walk to a non-traditional song too!  We are having a brass band, and I want them to play a Beatles song.  I’m just not sure which one.  I originally wanted “You’re my best friend,” but I don’t think they will play it because it is a Queen song.  (“But that’s our song!”)  Or, I wanted a Neil Diamond song, I think it would be fun and lighten the mood.

I’ve got a 3 way tie going on between the following three songs:

Kissing by Bliss (from the SATC movie)

I’m kissing You by Desree (Romeo and Juliet)

or By Your Side by Sade

For the recessional I picked “Can’t take my Eyes off of You by Lauryn Hill

I was thinking about doing Long Trip Alone by Dierks Bentley, but I was told by my Man of Honor that it was too country for his tastes and well, I know it doesn’t fit my Fiance and I’s relationship, so to humour everyone I’m now thinking about doing Final Countdown by Europe instead as it’s one my Fiance and his friends really like and sing to when it is on the radio, etc. Who knows though.

The top contenders are “you’re my best friend” by queen, “home” edward sharpe and the magnetic Zeros or “I wanna hold your hand” by the beatles.

at the moment i think home will be the walking down the aisle song.

@kristi… that’s a really cool one! I just watched that whole video and got a little teary eyed at the end where he’s talking about his daughter. 🙂

My song is going to be “Marry Me” by Train, played by our acoustic guitarist… I am SO in love with this song, it just perfectly captures the sweet/simple feeling I wanted my walking-down-the-aisle song to have.

I’m walking to So You Are to Me by Eastmountainsouth. I’m going to have to edit it b/c it’s 2min long but I just thought it was so beautiful.

This is one thing I’ve known since I was like a pre-teen, haha. When I finally DO get married, whenever that may be, I know that I won’t want the traditional song…I absolutely love piano solos, so it will be something piano. Either something Chopin (LOVE love love Chopin!) or one of these. Yes, they are from video games, but the music is so lovely when it’s piano…

I love the first one and the last the best.

I’m walking down the aisle to Vitamin String Quartet’s version of Use Somebody.  Its a gorgeous version of the song and we LOVE Kings of Leon!
