I am walking down to the instrumental live eletrical harp “Evergreen”. It was my mother’s and father’s wedding song, and mine too as I was 4 months in her belly at the time.  They divorced when I was 3 years old, and now I’m symbolizing “picking up the pieces and re-writing history” and creating the happily ever after that never came by chosing it as my aisle song.  I have never been a fan of the traditional here comes the bride or the over done Pacheabell Canon in D. Your choices sound lovely and they are unique and special to you, that’s wonderful. My bridesmaids are walking down to Enya’s A day without rain  🙂 So I think it would be wonderful for your bridesmaids to walk down to something different than yours!!!  Good luck in your choices!!!

I think if you pick the right song it would work for your girls and then you.  If the song could somehow have a change or become more dramatic when you come in it could work very well.

I had just me walking down a LONG aisle with my brother.  We also were having a dinner reception but had decided before downsizing the wedding on a song for our first dance.  We got engaged on vacation together and listened to Jason Mraz the whole time, especially “I’m Yours” and it kind of just became our song.  So I walked down the aisle to that and it was absolutely perfect for us.

@mandb122: I am planning to walk down to an orchestral version of “I’m Yours”! Fiance and I listened to that CD on our first date and quite a lot after that–he played it in the car on the way to the dinner where he proposed, too :D. We also consider “Lucky” our song, so that will be our first dance. What other music did you use? I haven’t figured anything else out. . .

DH’s parents, his grandma, and my mom were all part of the processional. They all walked down to the same song as my BMs – The Ludlows from Legends of the Fall (inspired by Mrs Hamster!!). Then I walked down to Canon in D!

We had a short aisle too and I considered using the same song for me and my Bridesmaid or Best Man, but when I heard the other song, I wanted to incorporate it into our ceremony somehow, which is why split up the music and included the family in the processional.

Other music: The Prayer by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli for the signing of the register, and Everything by Michael Buble for the recessional (all of the music on piano).

@Keltaena: We only had two songs at our ceremony because it was such a small wedding.  I took almost the whole time to walk down the aisle to “I’m Yours” because my aisle was so long.  For the recessional my mother actually dedicated a song to us in honor of my grandmother who passed away when I was 14 and I would have given anything for her to be there.  So we recessed to “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra who was my grandmother’s favorite singer/celebrity of all time.

Since FH is Catholic, we were very limited.   I just went with Here Comes the Bride, since it’s the only song I could really visualize.

I walked down the aisle to a bluegrass band playing an instrumental version of “Here, there and everywhere” by the Beatles.
