Our prelude was Dmitri Shostakovich’s Waltz No. 2. My processional was Carl Orff’s O Fortuna and our recessional was the Imperial March & Star Wars main theme song played on bagpipes.

Do what feels right to you! Don’t worry about everyone else’s thoughts – it’s not their day. I know certain people were a bit taken aback by O Fortuna but I didn’t care one bit and the majority loved it.

My first wedding, I walked down the aisle to Canon in D. I played the violin in school, and, like you, it was one of my favorite songs to play. Our recessional music was the throne  room song from “Star Wars.”

For my second wedding, I walked down the aisle to “No Day but Today” by Idina Menzel. The lyrics have a lot of meaning for Darling Husband and I. After the ceremony was over, we didn’t walk away – the DJ played “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and the Waves and we started dancing and got everyone else to dance with us.

I agree like u I always thought I would use the cannon as always loved it and planned to use it the same way but it didn’t really work with the ceremony space or us as a couple. But choose Thousand years which both of us loved.

Parents walked to Vader’s march, my husband and I walked down the aisle together to the original (1950-ish) Dr Who opening credits,  we all walked back up to the Dr who closing credits (Tenant’s version). We’re nerds.

Every Morning by Keb Mo. Not only is it beautiful and romantic, it’s a song my father loved. he passed away when I was a teenager. I walked myself down the aisle because no one can replace him, but having a song playing that he loved was a sweet way to remember him in that moment.

yourhandinmine :  you could do an alternative version of Canon in D? Rework it a bit?

What about this lol: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=by8oyJztzwo

We’re having a pretty relaxed humanist ceremony in an art gallery room, so I am just playing music off the stereo. We will walk in together to The Pogues – Love you til the end, and walk out to The Zombies – This will be our year (if we don’t use this as first dance..)

We kind of did what you’re doing.

I walked in to something ultra churchy. It’s choral but not particularly well known as wedding music.

We walked out to the Jurassic Park theme
