  • Wedding: July 2011

We’re thinking of asking a family friend who plays guitar to do our ceremony music. I have wanted Gustav Holst’s Jupiter as my entrance song since I was 15, before I had ever considered any aspect of a wedding at all; I heard that song, and it has been my overall favorite ever since. I love this guy’s version of In My Life for my ladies to walk to, but it would work just as well for the bride. I think the acoustic versions really change the feel. I am not sold on how Jupiter translates, but the full symphonic version is breathtaking.

Do you want words or just music?

I am having my wedding party enter to this song…it is so beautiful.

my shortlist was such great heights by Iron & Wine, the luckiest by Ben Folds, saving grace by Pete Murray, valium by Lisa Mitchell & bella by Angus & Julia Stone.

I decided on the Pete Murray song 🙂

I’m from Australia so you may not have heard of a couple of those artists, but good luck choosing a song! It’s definitely the thing that I’m finding trickiest at the moment!

This is ours and I don’t think it is overplayed. I don’t know if it is your style though.

We are having a harpist and a flutist play.

Take a minute to browse through this older thread and you might get a few ideas.

I’m about 89% certain we’ll be using Bron-Y-Aur by Led Zeppelin (I’ve said this before elsewhere too, NOT the Stomp version!); it’s acoustic & instrumental, non-lyrical, light, not too somber and I have never ever seen it done at a wedding before. works for me!

 

eta: here’s another thread that might have some inspiration in it.

Perhaps ours is not unique, but we chose an instrumental version of the Beatle’s “Here Comes the Sun.” We were both born in 1969, the year the original was released, and were hoping to use our birth year as a sound track for our wedding.

We haven’t had any discussions about music, but I picture the wedding party walking out to The Imperial March (yes, THE Imperial March), me walking out to “So This is Love” from Cinderella (LOVE this version:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ai0t0-diAZo ), and the recessional will be “Ode to a Butterfly” by Nickle Creek.  Ecclectic, no?  😉

I would like something different than what is normally played.  I really love the intro to Allison Krauss’ version of “I Will”.  FI thinks it’s too “twangy” and was kind of offended when I said I didn’t want to use “Here Comes the Bride”…I may let him win this battle since he is pretty traditional when it comes to the ceremony!

We had a solo piano for my wedding and I walked down to “Edelwiess” from The Sound of Music. It was so pretty and one of my favorite songs!

I want to use Zac Brown Bands Violin Intro to Free and Free, instrumental only – it’s proving to be a little hard to find the sheet music for it though….

I am considering walking down to either Book of Love by Peter Gabriel, Mama’s song by Carrie Underwood, or (my top pick right now) Fresh Feeling by Eels. I definitely don’t want something overdone and obvious 🙂

‘Can You Feel the Love Tonight’ from The Lion King.  We’re debating between the actual Elton John version, a string quartet version, or acoustic guitar.

We’re having an outdoor wedding, somewhat low-key and relaxed so I’m using a song called “River Road” from the Elizabethtown soundtrack. It’s somewhat bluegrass but with a soft, slow feel to it.
