Me- “falling in love in a coffee shop” – landon pigg

For some reason, for me to be emotionally attached to a song, I need lyrics. Fiance and I met in a coffee shop, which is why I find the song fitting. Its also a beautiful song.

@Ls413:  Everyone knew because I told them.  We had a destination wedding in Hawaii with ten guests.  My family definitely would have recognized it without me telling them, but we spent 10+ years of family vacations going to Universal Studios, and my dad and I both like to hang out in the Jurassic Park area and listen to the music.  I’m not sure if DH’s family would have recognized it or not.  I think most people who don’t have an obsission with the movie or the soundtrack would probably feel like it was familiar, but have trouble placing it.

During the seating “you & me” – lifehouse.

Groom, gms and bms will be walking to “hanging by a moment” – lifehouse.

I will be walking to “all or nothing” – theory of a dead man.

recessional is “life is beautiful” 6 a.m.

I’m hoping to find someone to play them via piano.

I am walking down to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by IZ

It doesn’t really “go” with our theme, but it has always been such a special song to me. When I heard the Iz version I was DONE. Instant tears. I knew that had to be my wedding song.

A pop/rock song, written in the late 1960s, that has a one word title – my first name. (It makes my mother cry, every time she hears the tune). Smile

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have thoughts about the use of a recorded song as ‘walk down the aisle’ music? (I mean as opposed to having someone perform live.)

I heard a bride ranting about it being tacky, but quite frankly I could see less going wrong than when it’s a live performance… Do guests really think “Oh god, she’s playing an iPod?” (and if they do, do I want those people at the wedding?? 🙂 )

I haven’t set my mind either way, just wondering if smart people have thoughts about it.
