This time there will be no traditional wedding march. I want my bridesmaids and party to come out to "All I ask of You" from Phantom, which is my all time favorite love song.
My song? Viva la vida. Instrumental. We’ll have a few musicians, a harp, two strings and one percussion most likley. That song gives me goosebumps and I love it so much. I know it’s not a love song, but it has the most beautiful melody and I think it will be so different.

Circle of life is gorgeous. Also if you’re going with Elton, how about "The Way You Look Tonight"..one of my favorites or "The One".
@DG:I love Bittersweet btw DG.
@Ms. Leopard, I haven’t heard that song. Will google it.
All I ask of you is a song that represents alot to me. For over 15 years now, Phantom has been my favorite musical. I first saw it with my former H and have loved it for years. Ironically in my prior wedding, I had music from phantom but NOT all I ask of you. Never knew why until later on. Years pass and I watched the movie last year after I met my guy. I hear that song, all new in the movie, and see how that is the song where she banishes the phantom basically. So that song also represents to me how I’ve banished the phantom of my past life.

I love your songs and the reasons why! Wow!
My bridesmaids walked down the aisle to "Soul Meets Body" by Deathcab for Cutie (two of my former students sang it) and I walked down to an insturmental version of "She’s Got a Way" by Billy Joel. The Deathcab song is our favorite and I’ve always loved Billy Joel, expecially this song.

Ooh, Calioc- love that song!
We’re recessing to Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder… but we could use Bittersweet Symphony for everyone else to process if I find something else.

I’m walking to "I’ll Be" by Edwin McCain. And I finally found the perfect song for the girls, the theme from The Princess Bride! I’m excited to have finally figured it out!

I’m thinking about using Tchaikovsky’s "Sleeping Beauty Waltz" at some point – if not for my walk, perhaps for my bridesmaids. But since Sleeping Beauty is my favorite disney movie, it’ll probably end up being for me.
