I will be walking down the aisle to “Marry Me” by a Canadian artist named Amanda Marshall….my mentor, friend and vocal coach will be singing me down the aisle and her partner will be accompanying her on the guitar – funny since he was the lead singer of a semi-popular Canadian band in the 90s…I actually went and saw his band on a few occasions with friends during high school and now he’s playing my wedding. We’re getting married on the grounds of my parents country club under a big, beautiful maple tree and I think the acoustic softness will really suit the mood perfectly.

I don’t know how I’m going to get down the aisle without bawling because I can barely listen to the song now without crying!

I’m walking to “At Last”, by Etta James.

The bridal party processional is Tom Waits’ “I Want You”.  We were going to do “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes but that song always makes me tear up and it would be bad to be crying before I even make it to the altar.

I’m walking by myself, which I’m both excited about and kind of terrified of.  Mostly terrified of, like, falling.

An instrumental version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I see this is a popular choice!

Our processional song is “At Last”, Eva Cassidy’s version.

It’s so beautiful and perfect!

@LibbyLoo: I FREAKING LOVE THAT SONG!! What a great choice! I’ve always loved Amanda 🙂

I’m walking down the aisle to ‘Wonderful Tonight’ by Eric Clapton played by string trio…very similar to the VSQ version, but not exactlly the same.

Our recessional is ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ by AC/DC also on string trio. I love telling people that bc we get ther STRANGEST looks!

I walked down the aisle to “The Proposal” from Ever After (my friend who was my pianist suggested it and I cried when he played it). Bridal party walked in to “From Long Sleep” by Oliver and the Penguin. And we walked out to All you Need is Love by the Beatles because, let’ face it, it’s true 😀

I’m walking down the aisle to Canon in D. We’re having a church wedding, so we had to choose something more traditional plus I think it’s beautiful.

“Love song” originally done by the cure but I’m torn between the 311 and Adele’s version. I was trying to get my brother to sing it with one other girl but not holding my breath.

He wants to walk out to ZZ Tops Sharp Dressed Man, and I was thinking of the song from sleeping beauty-Once Upon a Dream.
