At Last, Etta James

Rush, SheDaisy

Crazy Love, Van Morrison

Truly, Madly, Deeply, Savage Garden

I Want to Grow Old with you, Westlife

and…Come Away with Me, Norah Jones (although it’s a little slow)

Listen to Canon in F by the O’Neill Brothers online at amazon.com.  It’s a nice way to step away from Pachabel’s Canon in D.

I used Cannon in D only because I had always dreamed of walking down the isle to it since I saw Father of the Bride in middle school. But my husband and the bridal party walked in to Falling in Love in a Coffee Shop by Landon Pigg. It was beautiful!

I’m having the traditional Bridal March played on a harp by my cousin. For my bridesmaids I’m having Lara’s Theme from Dr. Zhivago, it’s such a pretty song and sounds amazing on harp. For the recessional, I’m having Spring from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

I didn’t think I’d be the type to have the traditional song, but when I heard it on harp I fell in love with it. It sounds so different. PLUS, in your case, a harpist might be cheaper than a string quartet.

The whole wedding party including myself walked down to Debbie by Michael Nyman. I used piano music from movies (Pride & Prejudice, Wonderland, Amelie) throughout the ceremony, it was fun to have nontraditional music like that!

I walked down to "Sometimes” by Gabrielle it’s on the sundtrack to Love Actually.  I thought it was a nice pace and didn’t have any words.<span style=”font-size: 12pt; font-family: ‘Times New Roman'”>

I am walking to Canon in D but the girls are walking down to Moon River by Henry Mancini from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.  I have a pianist/organist/vocalist all in one and then added a violinist.  That is a nice addition if a whole string quartet is not in your budget.  It was not in mine.

I like the idea of "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana for walking down the aisle and "Halleilujah" or "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough" for walking out. Dramatic, although not romantic. 🙂 I don’t do traditional very well.

I walked down the aisle to the Bridal Chorus otherwise known as "Here Comes the Bride" played on a huge honkin’ church organ. So predictable but it sent shivers down my spine. LaLaLa – Whether you go for something traditional or more creative, I would suggest walking down to something different than your bridesmaids so that there is a distinct transition and cue that you’re on your way. You are after all, the BRIDE! I say bask in it a little bit and have your very own song.

"Aria di Mezzo Carattere" from Final Fantasy VI, played on harp and violin.
