I’m planning to walk in to All You Need is Love by the Beatles, but I need to work out the logistics.

I walked down the aisle to Cat Power’s “Sea of Love.” It was really beautiful. 🙂

I am walking to the instrumental/piano version of Come What May from the movie Moulin Rouge. I know the movie itself is not a great pick for a wedding since it’s mostly about prostitution, greed, and life as a lowly writer… but it holds a special place in my heart. It was the movie Fiance and I watched on our first date… definitely a strange pick for a first date movie, but since then, we always laugh about it.

For that reason, I knew I had to use the songs from the movie in the wedding. So, I’m walking to Come What May, our first dance is the movie’s rendition of Your Song, and our entrance is Rhythm of the Night.

I’m walking in to the instrumental version of “Your Song” by Elton John. It’s from Moulin Rouge, but it’s only played quietly in the background of a montage scene, so it’s not recognizable as “that song from that cheesy movie years and years ago” haha.

Here it is on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbsjYlaVdk0 🙂 I get teary hearing it and the wedding is still almost a year away!

@Miss Lemmons: HAHA two Moulin Rouge answers in a row, awesome! Our first dance song is most likely going to be the original version of Your Song — I love the movie version too but Fiance hates that movie, and we both love Elton John and the original version is the first song we ever slow danced to, so it works.

I’m walking to the classic guitar version of Storybook Love which is the theme from Princess Bride.
