    "Here Comes the Bride"

    "Canon in D"

    "Hoppipola"

    "Ode to Joy"

    "Air on the G-String"

    A Vitamin String Quartet arrangement

    Something else (I want to hear about it!)

    Nothing: there will be no music at my wedding.

    @sugaree I wanted that for my 1st wedding in ’97, but gave in to tradition. I regret that.

    @housebee:  OMG you are awesome. I LOVED that song when I first heard it on Futurama and had to look it up! Definitely unique! If only there was a romantic Zoidberg-related song… Zoidberg is my homeboy.

    We had a pianist play Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” for my walk down the aisle. We had an evening ceremony and it was amazing. Cheesy song? Perhaps, but I love it anyway! Still gives me goosebumps when I listen to it. 🙂

    @Tatiana0622:  Wouldn’t that be the Andrew Oldham Orchestra’s recording of “The Last Time” by The Rolling Stones then? 😉

    An organist friend of mine is arranging a processional for us. It’s a piece by Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas (Scottish fiddle/cello duo) that they originally did with a bagpiper, that she is rearranging for violin, cello, and organ. So excited to hear it!

    How is everyone stopping their music? Im sure it wont take 4 minutes to walk down the aisle. Mine will only take about 30 seconds at most.

    If you have live musicians, you trust their judgement and common sense to wind down the music at the right moment – and (ideally) you choose a piece with a musical structure that makes it easy. (That’s why Pachelbel’s Canon is so ubiquitous – it’s really nice for weddings because every few measures it comes around to a place where you could end it easily. That kind of piece is great for processionals.)

    If you don’t have live musicians, you trust your DJ’s judgement and common sense to turn the music down/off when you get to the end of the aisle. And, ideally, you choose a piece with enough flexibility that s/he can find a good ending point at about the right time. More difficult, though, because the recording is set and can’t adjust the way live musicians can.

    Handel’s Rejouissance:

    Widor’s Toccata for the recessional:

    We’re getting married in a very traditional church and Fiance is a classical music buff so I pretty much left it to his judgment. If we were to resort to my embarrassing taste in music I would’ve chosen this:

    Air on the G-string makes me giggle.  I’m so mature.  I walked in to Trumpets Voluntary played on the harp.

    The groomsmen and bridesmaids will either be walking into Spring from the Four Seasons Suite by Vivaldi (funny enough it’s going to be a fall wedding, but I like Spring the most lol), Holberg Suite Prealude or a classical version of Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours. Depends on how I feel closer to the date, and which fits in better with how long the walk will be and stuff. I’ll be walking into the bridal march because I’m lame and I’ve always wanted to.

    Here’s videos of the two classical songs, because I love them. I couldn’t find a youtube video of the classical version of I’m Yours, but I have it on CD bought on Itunes.
