Song to walk down the aisle

Recommended Posts

LOL I just spent the better half of my night listening to all your songs b/c even though I might know them I am what I like to call "musically challenged."

 

The two songs (both in instrumental) I had up in the air were BitterSweet Symphany by the Verve and Clocks by Coldplay. In the end Coldplay won. Maybe I can use BitterSweet somewhere else. Now only if I settle on what other songs to use.

ooh, I love clocks too!! My only problem with bittersweet symphony is that the instrumental version is not very long, I'm worried it might not be long enough for me to get down the aisle, but I love it!! Clocks has a similar sound to it, maybe I'll check that out too.

I think I'm going to have the bridal party and flower girls walk down to the tropical version of Somewhere over the Rainbow. For me & my Dad to walk down, I really like Answer by Sarah McLaughlin. I have no idea what we are going to walk out to though?

This is what my sister did last week:

 

bridal party: tropical Somewhere Over the Rainbow- I'm not going to try to spell his name

bride: Pretty Woman, Roy Orbison- everyone loved it

recessional: My First, My Last, My Everything, Barry White

introductions: 90210 theme song

I have no idea about any of this. Probably Ava Maria. Matt's fam is from Italy and it's a beautiful song.

 

The only other thing that comes to mind is ALicia Keys new song "No One". I lvoe it, but Matt and I have very different taste in music. I am all R&B and hip hop. He doesn't want Alicia Keys. I am not too concerned about the music though.

I like "come away with me" by Nora Jones and an instrumental version of "bittersweet symphony" - one for the bridal party and one for me (although I am not sure exactly which one goes with which, but def leaning towards me walking to Nora). The only thing is, I am not sure if I want actual words while I am walking down the aisle and I don't know if "come away with me" will be the same without the words... am I being silly?

We're going to use "Somewhere over the Rainbow" for the bridal party, and then I'm going to walk down to Alison Krauss' cover of "I Will" by the Beatles. It also has a beachy, guitar feel to it, and I love it! Still haven't decided on a recessional yet.

 

On average, how long should the songs be for the bridal party (2 bridesmaids/groomsmen) and the bride processional? I don't want to finish walking and then stand and wait another 2 minutes for the song to finish!

I have no idea what I walked to, we hire the mariatchi trio and I trusted them to play something beautiful, they did. They walked behind me as I walked, it was really nice, everyone loved this part of the wedding.
