Song to walk down the aisle

Recommended Posts

Ok like most brides I think about the little details instead of the more important stuff like setting a date. LOL. I really want to walk down to Israle Kamakawiwo'ole's version of "Somewhere over the rainbow". It's from the 50 first dates soundtrack. It has a beachy feel to it. I was curious as to what music you guys are playing when you walk down/or you played when you walked down the aisle.

I am walking to "Unsingable Name" by Mike Doughty. Love it.

 

This actually brings up a question I have. How do you get the song played? The Dj isn't starting until after cocktail hour so I don't think there will be speakers set up for the ceremony. How does this work?

Currently, it's Never Felt this Way by Brian McKnight.

 

Selecting songs has been an ongoing project. I keep changing my mind. FI wants to enter on a "special" song as well... Anyone's FI want a song other than what you had in mind?

My song was O Sole Mio - it sounded beautiful when played by our trio.

 

My husband's family is from the Neopolitan villiage (or near it) where the song took root in the late 1800s so it was a nod to his ancestry. Here are the words (note - it is NOTHING like Elvis Presley's version) although ours was acoustical...

 

’O SOLE MIO (Translation)

 

What a beautiful thing is a sunny day,

A gentle breeze after the storm!

Through the fresh air already appears a feast.

What a beautiful thing is a sunny day!

 

Refrain:

 

But another, lovelier sun doesn’t exist.

My sun is your face.

The sun, my sun,

Is your face, is your face.

 

There’s a light in the panes of your window.

A laundress sings and boasts.

While she wrings and spreads and sings,

There’s a light in the panes of your window.

 

Refrain

 

When night is falling and the sun is setting,

A feeling almost like melancholy overcomes me.

I would stop under your window,

When night is falling and the sun is setting.

I love that version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." The ukulele inspired me to plan my wedding in Hawaii...at the beginning. But, alas, it was too expensive for our guests. embarrest.gif
