@Miss Orchard:  I know what Christmas song you’re talking about, and it is one of my all time favorites! It’s called Christmas Canon Rock by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!

 

My mom wants me to walk down the aisle to Trumpet Voluntary. She says it’s tradition in her family. However, I think of that more as a recessional song. I want to walk down the aisle to Canon in D. We’ll see what happens!

I always thought of Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen (made famous by Jeff Buckley) as a beautiful song, but very melancholy.  There’s some darker biblical references in the song (one of which is about adultry) that don’t really evoke love to me.  I’m a little surprised so many people are considering it for their wedding.

I’m walking down to this acoustic version of Hanging by a Moment by Lifehouse:

I also considered You and Me by Lifehouse and Marry Me by Train but covered by Derek Cate

Officiant, groom, the mums and the attendants (only one for each of us) will walk in to an instrumental version of “I’m a Believer” (trimmed to about 2 mins.)

I’ll make my entrance to the Vitamin String Quartet’s version of “Beautiful Day” (also trimmed a bit)

Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton played by our string quartet.  Makes me cry every time.  It doesn’t hurt that I used to listen to this song with my dad when I was little, and he’ll be walking me down the aisle.

@deetuned:  LOVE your pick of “Green Onions”! 

Likewise, I’m at the other end of the spectrum…walking to “Tighten Up” by the Black Keys.  Lots of other unconventional/”out there” ceremony songs, too. My girls are walking to “Moment 4 Life” by Nicki Minaj. Nothing mild for will do for us, LOL.

I think I’m walking down to Canon in D… just a classic haha. Not sure about the girls yet… and as for walking out, the Fiance wants (half-joking, half-serious) to have the victory theme from Final Fantasy (the first one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5c2Vb7CqTdc). Not sure how I feel about it… but we are also considering “The Great Adventure” by Steven Curtis Chapman, it’s cute and funny 😛
