What are you walking down the Aisle to?

Recommended Posts

great ideas ladies! Now I am overwhelmed!! Okay hopefully there are some Sandals brides out there to help answer this? Do I bring my Bose system & Ipod and just play these songs in a certain order or how does this work? I guess I should have thought of this!

thanks for your help! we aren't having a legal ceremony but I wonder if they fake it and have us sign something anyway? we are having the sound system...im relieved to hear that he will fade in/out of songs.

I will defintely have to choose a different song for the MOH, parents, etc.

Thanks girls!

i think you do have to sign something in the ceremony anyway, just maybe not in triplicate and with so many witnesses signing!

rest assured, the sound guy will totally take care of everything. just provide him a clearly labeled cd or ipod. couldn't hurt to have the order written on something else too. i had burned a cd and never checked it to make sure it was ok and was really paranoid that it would skip or something LOL, but claudia assured me the sound guy would have checked it beforehand, that it's his JOB to do so.

Someone a few pages back mentioned "Bella's Lullaby" and I checked it out and it is fabulous! I think I'm going to walk down the aisle to it! I have always loved Canon in D - I actually learned it on the piano years ago, but this new song is similar as far as if you want piano in your song and it is sweet.

Bella's Lullaby is a beautiful song...you should also check out River Flows in You by Yiruma. I am downloading a bunch of his songs now to play during the cermony.

FI and I talked alot about this, and we ended up choosing the Keith Kubena version of "Pachabel's Canon"

 

When we were first dating I used to set my cell phone alarm to the "canon in D" and FI used to call it Peach-a-belle's Canon. He then started calling me Peachabelle or "peach" for short-- so the song is very meaningful. He actually teared up when I played him the version I'd found. yay!smile29.gif
