What are you walking down the Aisle to?

Recommended Posts

Everyone's songs are so great! We finally decided that I will walk down to Canon in F and the girls will walk down to somewhere over rainbow/wonder life from 50 first dates.

Also, what do you guys think about walking down the aisle to "Im yours" Jason Mraz?
I really like the song, but, I'm not sure if I want to walk down the aisle with singing...but, that's the best part of the song!
Also, now my FI thinks that I shouldn't use it now since it was on American Idol last night!
Rhonda,

I think its up to you whether you want to do the same song for everyone, or a bridal party and then bride song. I'm going to be doing one for everyone-- and I think heading down to Jason Mraz sounds awesome. I think the whole "instrumental only thing" is silly.

Oooh, I can do the same song for the bridesmaids and myself? AWESOME!

4-5 minutes seems SO long to me though...does it honestly take that long to walk the aisle? In my mind it takes like...30 seconds. That brings up another question I have too...how do you guys walk up the aisle? As in, do you just stroll, or do you do the old traditional right-together-left-together? And if you just walk, do you try to walk to the beat, or do you just walk normally?

Hey Binzer,
I think I'm going to try and stroll and normally as possible, slower than usual, but as natural as possible. I've never been a fan or the right, left, together-- it's too regimented.

We're all in a beautiful tropical locale, which I think screams flowy, casual and laid back. Regimented steps just don't seem to do any of our destinations any justice. lol

Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure if it was normal to do 2 songs...I kinda like the idea of changing songs for the bridal entrance and walk....I think it might heighten the drama...you know what I meanhuh.gif But, I'm sure both are fine.

I agree with the whole "instrumental only thing". Although, I don't think I've ever been to a wedding where the bridal walk wasn't only instrumental.
But, I guess, we're not doing anything traditional..afterall, we're doing it in Mexico! :)

For the the last year I was set on using "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," until about a week ago when I heard Amy Seeley's "Gravel Lines". Although it doesn't sound beachy or really romantic, my mind was flooded with the memories of the night that FI and I first met and is remnant of our unfolding story.

Amy Seeley has a beautiful voice, and her music is classic sounding enough that I don't think you need to worry! SotR is a great song, but I think it's nice to use something more personal if you can find something that resonates with you and your FI as a couple. Even if you don't use that song as a processional, you should use it for something! There are more than enough "song slots" to fill :P

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
