    Okay so what if you get live music for the cermony, like mariachis or trios? Do you still request the music? or they play what they usually play?

      I think they can probably all play "Here Comes the Bride" but if you want something different you'll need to ask them what they can play for the "walk." Our mariachi trio is playing "Cannon in D" instead.

      If you have a WC you can also ask them for suggestions of songs that have sounded nice in the past.

        We haven't figured out all of the music yet, but for the beginning walk, it will be Cannon in D. That was one of the pieces I performed the first time I was recorded. When we do the unity ceremony, we'll play "de Colores" but it will be FI's mom singing on the last record she made (which will be a suprise for his family). And when the ceremony ends and we walk back up the aisle together, we'll play "Imagine" by John Lennon as a tribute to his dad (his favorite song).

            I will be walking down the aisle to Prelude in C by Bach. I was able to find the harp and flute combo version so it will sound like I am "floating" down the aisle...supposedly :)

                I'll be walking down the aisle to "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban. The song is pretty long (almost 5 minutes), so I think I'm going to have BMs and flower girls walk down to this song too, and then I will enter about 3 minutes into the song at the big cresendo (sp),- the real "dramatic" part :)
                I'm thinking about "The Prayer", Josh Groban and Charolette Church's version, for the parents/grandparents, and "I'm a Believer" by Smashmouth (from the Shrek soundtrack) as a recessional. It's a fun, upbeat song, and also has significance for us because one of my nicknames forl Matt is "Shrek" (I think he sorta looks like him....and I mean this in the most loving way possible....I happen to think Shrek is really cute with his bald head and little ears...just like Matt!) What do you think? See siggy pic below?

I have a proof that words don't matter - my FI is a photographer and one of the brides chose this song for her DVD slideshow...lol we had to cut it out

                  That's actually the song I was going to walk down the aisle to! We had decided to just fade it out before it got to the "til I find somebody else" part. Now I'm starting to lean toward "Question" by the Old 97's since I love them and it's what the FH sang to me when he proposed.
                  We're walking back off to "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service.
