I also love Canon in D, and it has a very special place in my heart, but I couldn’t bring myself to include it in our ceremony because it is so ubiquitous these days and I pretty much feel like everyone is royally sick of it! I dabble in classical music geekery, having played in orchestra for years, and I’m in love with a passage from Holst’s Jupiter which I will be asking our musicians to play for my procession down the aisle. It’s the bit that begins at 2:54 here. It’s not traditional wedding music, meaning I’ll probably have to pay extra for them to learn it, but it is gorgeous and very meaningful to me as we played that piece when I was in college.

My brother is playing acoustic guitar for us, and I will be walking to Blackbird by the Beatles.  A very special song for me and my fiance.

I also enjoyed Air on G by Bach.

We are using completely untraditional music, with traditional sound. I am walking down to “River Flows in You” by Yiruma.

I love Canon in D too.  I am entering to Trumpet Voluntary, which is also uber traditional.

@Mermaid1082:  I’m walking down to Trumpet Voluntary too!  Our church is massive with a huge balcony.  I’m having 2 herald trumpets play the intro then the organ (it’s massive too of course) play me in. 


I suggest getting on YouTube and typing in “Canon in D” then see what comes up in the sidebar of similar entries.  That’s how I found all of my ceremony music. 🙂
