    @Narwhal: Yes, LOVE Avril 14th. I was initially going to use it for the wedding party’s processional, but we ended up playing it for the seating of the mothers. Adore it.

    @pengoala: I’m so excited for this for you, lol. I have so much love for that movie, and Portuguese Love Theme was a top contender for a long time for my entrance.

    We had a full Catholic mass so everything had to be classical and/or religious:

    Prelude—sung by my friend who is a cantor:

    The Prayer (Bocelli)

    The Irish Wedding Song (Betteridge)

    In This Very Room (Harris)

     For the instrumentals, we had a pianist, cellist, and violinist

    Procession of the Parents & Grandparents:

    Ode to Joy (Beethoven)


    Procession of the Bridal Party:

    Cannon in D (Pachelbel)


    Procession of the Bride:

    Trumpet Voluntary (Clarke)


    And for the exit:


    Wedding March (Mendelssohn)

    I just listened to Pachelbel Meets U2—and am obsessed! I’m so bummed our video is almost finished…this would have been PERFECT for the recap song! 

    Good find, thanks!

    I’m walking down the aisle to a cello piece by Bach played by yo-yo ma. it was used in the film Master and Commander. I’ve been in love with this piece for years and have waiting to walk down the aisle to this song. My fiance and wedding party will go out to Everlong by Foo Fighters. Huge contrast, but it fits us.

    I think Fiance and the two BMs will walk down to my Future Father-In-Law playing “Glasgow love song” from love actually. I’m walking to “phone call” by Jon Brion from eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. Makes me well up every single time I hear it. I also like “peer pressure” from that soundtrack, not sure if I’ll use it though.

    Don’t know if I replied before … but ours is a secondtime around wedding , so not so traditional.    It is planned for outdoors with a country /vintage casual theme. 


    I decided so far, on All My Days by Alexi Murdoch.  to be played before /entrance and then softly in background – the music only during the rest of ceremony.

    I think ! haha

    @Rrabbetsgirl:  “Everything I do” is my song too! I renamed it “my wedding song” after the first time I heard it (when I was 8) and couldn’t imagine using anything else. Whenever I listen to it now, I get chills just thinking about how I’ll feel in that moment.

    On a less sappy note, I’m pretty sure SO and I are recessing to “I believe in a thing called love” by The Darkness. I can’t wait!

    @BrooklynWife:  You’re welcome.  I really wanted to have that as my processional and walk in right where it starts being the u2 part, but I’m nervous about the timing and it stressing me out!
