What would you think if you went to a wedding and the bride walked down the aisle to the song “At Last” by Etta James? I saw somewhere about someone walking down the aisle to that song and listened to it and it just hit home. I have been uncertain as to what song I would like to walk down to, but after listening to it I just can not stop thinking about it. However, it is totally not my style at the same time. Most of our music will be country love songs, I dont know if throwing a song like that in there would be weird or not? Also at the same time, I want my wedding and myself to be “glamorous” and I feel like that song is glamorous as far as songs go, if that makes any sense?

If that song is what you envision in that moment then go for it!

I’m just not sure. The hesitation I feel is what is stopping me from commitmenting to it.

I think it’s a beautiful song! Yes it’s a common song at weddings, but it’s beautiful and timeless. I say go for it if you love the song!

If you like it, I love it. You could also consider using the instrumental if you’d prefer Etta not screaming at you. Either way its a beautiful song

I love the idea in general, and I love the idea of doing something non-traditional because it suits you better, but are you sure that’s what you want? I’m only asking because you said the song is not your style at all. Is there a country love song that suits you better? Maybe even a country version of “At Last”?

In general, I feel like if you love something you should just go for it because it’s YOUR wedding and who cares what other people think.
But, since you asked the question I’ll tell you that as a guest I would probably raise an eyebrow to the song. Whenever I hear that song used at weddings it just seems a little “off” to me because to me it is sort of implying bad things about the past. Like either the guy took too long to propose, or like you’ve had a really rough life and you are FINALLY getting married or something. I don’t know… I just have a hard time not thinking about the meaning and I feel like a wedding day should be all joy and not thinking about whatever struggles might have come before.
But again, I’d think it was a little strange for a minute then forget about it. If you love it, go for it.
