I’m walking down the aisle to Tracy Chapman’s ‘Save A Place For Me’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfgFC96xwFs
The girls are walking down the aisle to either PM’s Love Theme from Love Actually http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8kZPHdd_a4
or the Practical Magic Theme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kq2-d8fHDg
While I LOVE PM’s theme, it’s an outdoor wedding with a 150 foot aisle, and I can really see my flower girls and bridesmaids walking to the Practical Magic song. It feels like it just fits.
Might do PM’s Love Theme for our recessional since I can’t think of anything else
@sara.courtney3: I want that song too! We have not talked about our song walking down the aisle yet. I think this evening I will ask my fiance what he thinks about that. And the next step is to ask our pianist if he could play this. If not, do you bees think we could also play a CD in the church???
I will be walkig down the aisle to Adele’s version of “Make you Feel My Love!” If you haven’t heard it, check it out! OMG! I thought Bob Dylan did a great job but Adele just anhialates* (spelling?) it!
Give it a listen you may want it for yourself.
My briday party is walking to The Ludlows.
The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
I am a professional harpist so I wanted anything BUT a harp at my wedding! They are beautiful, but we are getting married at the beach and I didn’t want to be stressed out the whole time about the well being of the harp. I am so excited about what we are doing though 🙂 My fiance is a guitarist and will be playing and singing “Angel” by Jack Johnson to me when I walk down the aisle. It’s “our song” and he sings it to me whenever I can’t sleep or need to calm down.
Lebanese music lol its very dancey
Also, advice from a Harpist to a Bride:
When choosing your song, keep in mind that it won’t be played for very long. Most aisles are short and so only the first few measures will be played. While Canon in D is great for bridesmaids (since they take longer), it tends to sound awkward for a bride as the first few measures are very simple and not very pretty. If you still want it, you can ask your musician to start at a different point or play the intro measures for less time.
Also, I have found that “unique” songs (aka. songs that the musician is learning only for your wedding) don’t tend to work out as well as traditional because the musician does not have as much experience ending the piece in the middle (which happens every time in a bride’s processional)
But, that said, the world is your oyster! If you are willing to take the risk for a song that you love, then go for it! But maybe ask to hear your musician play the song for the approximate time it will take you to walk down the aisle so you can see how well he/she ends it.
I walked to Here, There and Everywhere by the Beatles, as played on guitar and sang by a very talented musician friend.
harpist was out of our budget so just gonna have Edward Sharpe and the magnetic Zeroes Home on a cd.. It will no doubt get a few eye rolls from the oldies but we love it.
