Ooh!  This is exactly what we did, and I spent HOURS sampling VSQ songs in iTunes to find ones that were happy and upbeat (sometimes songs translate into the string version as super dramatic and depressing, even if the original isn’t), and that people would recognize.

I LOVE All I Want is You for your processional!  I was between that one and God Only Knows, which I ultimately went with because Darling Husband liked it better.

For our prelude music, we used the VSQ covers of:

Sweet Child O’ Mine (Guns n Roses)

Hollywood Nights (Bob Segar)

Don’t Stop Believing (Journey)

1, 2, 3, 4 (the shirts, or white t’s or whatever they’re called… can’t remember at the moment)

Somebody to Love (Queen)

Sweet Home Alabama (Lynard Skynard)

Piano Man (Billy Joel)

Good Life (Kanye West)

Roll Me Away (Bob Segar)

Hey There Delilah

Night Moves (Segar)

Back in Black (ACDC — this was actually for our processional for the guys)

You’re My Best Friend (Queen — processional for the girls)

We’re using a lot of piano instrumentals (David Nevue and Jim Brickman primarily) for all the pre-ceremony music, and then VSQ’s “Hallelujah” (Paramore version) right before the processional to get everyone’s attention! I love that version!

I wouldn’t recommend it for ALL the music, because it’s kind of intense depending on the songs. But if going with them I would stick to instrumentals.

We’re using their wedding disc for a lot of the prelude music. The parents are coming in to their cover of Jeff Buckley’s version of Hallelujah, the girls and dudes are coming in to The Section quartet’s version of Such Great Heights, and I am coming in to the VSQ version of Paramore’s Hallelujah 9even though I haaaaate Paramore!)

I love the cover of Cars.  I’m thinking of using it for when the moms and bridal party walk in.
