What are you walking down the Aisle to?

Recommended Posts

I am considering walking down the aisle to Kenny Chesney's Me and You.....and during the signing of the register playing This Ring.....google it girls its a great song, I have never heard of the artist before or the song but its a really nice wedding song...and then I am thinking of playing after the wedding on our way out One Love by Bob Marley, in keeping with the Jamaican theme!!! I am still trying to decide what the bridal party walk into whether its the same song or a different one....perhaps Kenny G's the wedding song...its just a musical prelude!

love it!!! watson twins also do a very nice version ... i *think* i'm using the string quartet tribute verson tho. still unsure, since i kinda also fell in love with t. carter music's highland serenade celtic version of canon in D (fiance is irish, we're going to ireland for honeymoon!). maybe i'll end up using the string quartet tribute to the cure for my girls ... i had planned on using the somewhere over the rainbow thing, but my MOH just saw it used in someone's video and she was like, "duh, that's hawaiian, not mexican." i always just considered it beachy (and love the song), but now i'll feel kinda stupid for using it.

I am totally not even a Twilight fan but after seeing the movie I fell in love with the song that 'edward' plays on the piano for bella.. its called 'bella's lullaby' by Carter Burwell. And possibly 'River flows in you' by Yiruma since we have a large wedding party and I dont know how long we need. They are both very pretty paino melodies which is perfect cause I dont want any singing/lyrics..

OH MY!!!! So I already found my song, and I love the instrumentals. Then I went back after reading all your songs and looked up the lyrics. Lets just say it isn't the most love inspirational song.




I am in love with the instrumentals and even the lyrics.


I am walking down the isle to........

" This years love" by David Gray (i am obsessed with the piano in the beginning of this song and even the lyrics that start the song:

Heaven knows it's high time

I've been waiting on my own, too long

When you hold me like you do

It feels so right, oh now


The music to me is so beautiful and when I hear it I totally see myself walking down the isle focused on my FI and my mind all wrapped around the moment and the piano playing in this song.


I have to include we are a more non-traditional couple so here is the rest of our music line up:


bridal processional:

"Can't get enough of your love" Barry White (I do expect them to dance down the isle)


recessional: after they announce us husband and wife they will start

"You're the first, my last, my Everything" Barry White right where Barry White says -"We've got it together baby, (then it breaks into fun instrumental then) You're the first, my last, my everything... your the sun, the moon, the guiding star, my kind of wonderful that is what you are...." We plan to dance down the isle....


I have to say I am really excited....


Then when they welcome our wedding party I think we may have them play "Let's get it started" by Black Eyed Peas and when they introduce us we are a little torn but thinking "Remember the Times" by Michael Jackson....


We are a party bunch and want this to be all about a celebration more than a ceremony. So we felt the music, well and our friends, will set the tone.



would love feedback...

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
