My bridesmaids walked down the aisle to “Blackbird” by the Beatles (played by my cousin, who is a violinist) and I walked down to “In My Life”. “In My Life” is a great song for a wedding because the lyrics are super appropriate!

My bridesmaids are walking in to the Vitamin String Quartet version of Queen-Somebody to Love. It’s one of my favorites. And I’m dancing with my father to Let it Be by the Beatles, he used to sing it to me when I was a kid.

We did all Beatles. My Bridesmaid or Best Man walked to “Till there was You” I walked to Johnny Cash’s version of “In my Life” and the recessional was “All you need is Love.”

I think “Here comes the sun” is totally fine for a wedding (many people have walked to it) and nobody will read into it or think you are narcissistic,  no worries!

I walked down to the Vitamin String Quartet version of Imagine by John Lennon and my dad and I danced to Have I Told You Lately by Van Morrison. We are definitely a classic rock family! Here Comes the Sun was definitely a contender, as was God Only Knows by the Beach Boys.

Here is the version of Imagine I used. it’s seriously gorgeous.

Huge Beatles fans here: I walked to “Here, There and Everywhere” and our first dance was to “In My Life”. If I’m not mistaken, Mrs Turtle walked to a Vitamin String Quartet version of “Something”. I don’t think it will be read as narcisstic at all.

I walked down the aisle to “in my life” by the beatles. I don’t regret my choice, but it ended up being too short and the DJs had to hit “replay” on that song. 

I’m annoyed with my wedding planner because I suggested we rehearse with the song and she said there would be no need.  so my adive: bring a boom box and rehearse with the song!

I walked to “here there and everywhere” 🙂 (rest of the party walked to “god only knows” by the beach boys and we recessed to “how sweet it is” by james taylor)

You can walk to whatever you want! I LOVE the classics and it was a must for our first dance song! We are using Tom Petty!

I found an INCREDIBLY gorgeous acoustic version of “Tell Me What You See” by Jeff Rolka that I’m intent on having eveyone walk to (the place I’m getting married has a rather short walkway so it’ll cover the whole wedding party). I’m hoping one of our friends will be able to play/sing it rather than using Jeff Rolka’s recording, but if not then it’s definitely a good one.

I’m a HUGE fan of nontraditional processional/recessional music – why not personalize it?

you should walk down to whatever you want.  i don’t think here comes the sun would be odd at all.  i love that song, though!!  🙂  we walked in to a live band playing out the blue by john lennon, and they played supertramp’s give a little bit as we walked out.  the band played lots of older classic rock, beatles, tom petty, doors, etc. and it was a huge hit.  we had people dancing the whole time.  it was great to have music we all really loved, and obviously reflected our tastes as a couple.  i’m sure whatever you pick will be great!!

I’m excited to see other people have walked down the aisle to Here, There and Everywhere! I still have ten months until my wedding but that’s the song I’ve been thinking about using. Also, side note–Phoebe on Friends walked down the aisle to Here, There and Everywhere played by a steel drum which sounds really cool 🙂
