Bride’s Entrance – Canon D for me too.  Just something about it.

First Dance – On the Ocean K’Jon.  Then Unthinkable Alicia Keys.  Those songs are perfect for us and how we ended up together.  Also, we swing dance so those songs are perfect for that too!

THe aisle song has completely blew my mind.. i forgot all about… I’ll stick with something pretty classical or romantic.

 

Our first dance will be At Last by Etta James

@DeaconBride: I love “You Are”, too, but am kind of lost on exactly what kind of dance to do since it’s in a waltz count… Are you doing something choreographed?  Not that FH and I are capable of doing much other than the “awkward junior high school sway”.

For first dance, I’m also liking Kem’s “Share My Life”, and FH has brought up the possibility of Stevie Wonder’s “Overjoyed”.  Oh well, at least we have time to figure this one out.

For the processional, FH has picked out a Vivaldi guitar concerto that I really like (he’s taken over the ceremony music decisions, which I’m fine with–his choir will be singing, anyway).

Our first dance is to “It feels like home” 

We haven’t decided about the processional yet, we just found out that our friends can play at the ceremony for us (He plays the banjo and mandolin and she plays the guitar and bass).  So we are trying to come up with just instrumental songs for the ceremony.

We are having Edelweiss from the Sound of Music played on acoustic guitar when I walk down the aisle…it sounds beautiful 🙂 Not sure what our first dance song will be yet..but we are thinking about doing “Swept Away” the Sentimental Version by the Avett Brothers

Walking down the aisle to an instrumental version of ‘Here, there and everywhere’ by the Beatles.  First dance song……we are still working on that.

We are having ours at a Marina. I’m planning on walking down the aisle to Musiq’s “Love” played by a saxophonist. This may change since we love so many songs. I haven’t thought about our first dance yet..whew so much to think about. Thanks for the post it was definitely a reminder for me.. =)
