our bridal party (my mom & grandma, grooms parents, groom, best man, flower girl and ring bearer) all walked down to

Landon Pigg – "Falling in Love at a coffee shop"

and I and my Dad walked down to "Say" by John Mayer.  (i’m a John Mayer freak- its not very wedding like at all- but the guitar in the beginning is soooo lovely and perfect for the wedding we had)

"Love Fire" by Simply Red.  A beautiful and sexy song.  My fiance knew that when he proposed that this was a non-negotiable.  Will play song for the bridal party at the rehearsal dinner so they know the beat (it’s a little different from what they may expect)

For our ceremony, we’re going pretty traditional, so the bridal party is walking in to Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, I’m walking in to Pachelbel Canon in D (I learned to play this on the clarinet in the 7th grade and knew I wanted to walk down the aisle to it when I got married – I didn’t realize then that it was so popular – oh well!) and we’re walking out to Handel’s Hornpipe.

I’m a geek. "Aria di Mezzo Carattere" from Final Fantasy VI. It’s the opera music from the game. It will be played by violin and harp.

I’m walking into "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles. All our music is going to be by The Beatles and performed by a string ensemble. We’re having an outdoor ceremony, and I wanted something sweet and fun to walk in to.

Future Father-In-Law is a composer and wrote an original ceremony to music for woodwind quintet for us…such an honor!  Sorry, that probably doesn’t help much in terms of a suggestion :/

The entire processional will be done to the song Debbie, composed by Michael Nyman.

I’m walking down the aisle to a Song for You by Gram Parsons.  I love the words to that song and the way the guitar sounds.

We haven’t decided on everything yet, but there’s going to be a *lot* of music in our ceremony! I’ve played in string quartets since I was 10 – so my friends who play in an awesome professional quartet are going to play the ceremony. Since Mr.GV and I both play a lot of contemporary classical music, I’d like to keep it 20th century and later, but I still want the music to sound "pretty" to all the non-new-music-lovers who are there. (If it were up to him, we would use the weirdest, most obscure stuff, so I’m going to make these decisions. )I think I’ll probably walk down the aisle to the first movement of Ravel’s string quartet (whatever piece we end up with, they’ll start it a few minutes before the ceremony so they can play the whole thing), and I’m going to try to find a movement of Bartok or Ives and also something traditionally Jewish (like R’tzei) for during the ceremony and the recessional.

I’ve known for years that I wanted to walk down the aisle to Enya’s Watermark. Haven’t figured out anything else yet.

Bridal party is Air by Bach, I’m Canon by Pachelbel and we’re also incorporating "Grow Old With Me" by John Lennon in there as a segue from the "readings" portion of the ceremony to the "weddingy" portion. We’re also using Water Fountain by David Foster for the unity candle portion (piano) and we’re walking about to Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring by Bach. We have two violinist and a pianist to help. Fiance is a music guy, so he’s taking care of all of the arrangements.
