I think the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey is awesome in any occasion. If you walk down the aisle to that I will give you $10 and my eternal respect and gratitude.

I love Bittersweet Symphony. Especially if it’s played by string instuments (violin and harp) TO DIE FOR.

i like this version of Nothing Else Matters by Apocalyptica.



There is a great part where the music gets really strong. You could totally burst through the entrance doors at that point and make it epic. 😉

Seriously though, I would honestly consider this song for walking down the aisle.

If there are any rock or metal songs that you like (metal works great since it’s often melodic) you can often find string instrument versions!

Totally nerdy but I also love

The Darth Vadar theme! Haha, I always thought it would be hilarous for a bride to enter to that, like “Oh no! She’s coming!!”

Other than that I have no suggestions, sorry!

‘This Old Love’ by Lior is the song we are having our first dance to, but I think it would work beautifully to walk down the aisle to! Completely untraditional but gorgeous! Just depends what kind music style you enjoy 🙂

My fiance is a HUGE fan of the band Heart. I would LOVE to suprise him by walking down the aisle to a Heart song (we have a string ensemble playing during our ceremony so it would be their cover of the song, not the song directly from the CD).  I don’t know much about Heart other than Barracuda and the mop commercial–does anyone have any suggestions of their songs that would be appropriate?

Possibly far more epic than you’re looking for, but Death is the Road to Awe by Clint Mansell (for The Fountain soundtrack) is in my opinion one of the most stunningly beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard. It’s 8 minutes long but I promise it has the most amazing ending.

Also, I second the suggestion of Apocalyptica playing Nothing Else Matters.

@LindaD76: I love Heart and I think some great options would be ‘These Dreams’ and ‘All I wanna Do is Make Love to You’. Those are personally 2 of my all time faves from them!

Somebody needs to do “The Final Countdown”.  That would be so awesome.

@sailor: As soon as I saw the title, that’s what I was coming to post. Great minds think alike?

What is your meaning of Epic? 

@Mrs.tobe:  That song, even without the lyrics, just makes me think of cruel intentions which makes me think of cocaine and people getting hit by cars.

@Amaryllis: You know it!  Early on in the wedding planning, I actually told my husband I wanted to do it and he said hell to the no.  I was only half joking, too.
