Yes it’s cliché and pretty traditional (I think? lol) but FI and I both absolutely love this piece… we were listening to it together last week and both started crying. 😀 It’s funny, we both had really different ideas about weddings growing up (he wanted big, I wanted small, or elopement lol), but this is one thing we both always wanted!
Anyone else walking down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon? How did you go about it? Recording? Live musician? What instrument? I love the violin…

Vivi30: My bridal party walked in to Canon in D. My DJ came to the church to assist with the music so he took care of it for us. It was perfect.

My DH and I spend a lot of time trying to find something other than Pachelbel’s Canon for me to walk to. We couldn’t. We both love it. DH has about 20 versions of it on his iPod. I have two different versions. I finally told him “Yep, everyone does it. But why does that stop us from doing something we love.”
We had three muscians for our wedding, piano, fluit and violin all played by people I have known since I was 5. They did an amazing job!

My daughter’s bridal party walked down to it. She loved it and didn’t care that it’s been discussed as being over-used. The had 2 trumpeters and a piano/keyboardist. The 4 grandmothers and groom’s parents walked down first, to “Ave Maria.” The bride actually sang it herself. The bride and her father and myself walked down to Handel’s “Royal Fireworks” with trumpets in full force.

Misswhowedding: I definitely agree with that sentiment. Most people wear a white dress too but it doesn’t stop the tradition from continuing 🙂

Vivi30: I did. And it was beautiful and perfect and every thing I wanted. And my husband cried when I entered the chapel and walked towards him with that song playing and I’ll never forget it as long as I live.

Vivi30: We had a violinist. She came 15 before the ceremony and played, and then played while guests were leaving the room- and then left.

Our wedding party will walk down to it; I think it’s super pretty. I did originally want Prince of Denmark cause I liked how peppy it sounds lol but my fiance thought it was too “royal wedding.” I don’t really think about being popular or not. I wouldn’t go to a wedding and think “wow they’re walking down the aisle to this song.” But that’s just me.
