    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 love that song!
      I want to walk to "You raise me up" by Josh Groban. I love how dramatic it is...

        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?

          I was thinking Clanned and Bono "In a lifetime" .
          It sounds much better on Napster, but here is a link to where you can listen if you want.

            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.

                    That was my first choice too!!! It's such a mood lifter. I just couldn't figure out how to have it played.
