What are you walking down the Aisle to?

Recommended Posts

Such great ideas! I jotted a bunch down, and will have to start listening to them. A song that just popped into my head for the sand ceremony is the Taylor Swift duet Two is Better than One.

I'm thinking I would like the guests to hum 'here comes the bride'. I want them to participate, it's funny and it should keep me from crying.
I was at my friend's wedding last summer and the musician they hired didn't show up. The groom came down the aisle and said "we ask that you all hum a song for Julie as she comes down the aisle. I believe you all know it. It goes dum dum da dum".

It was a fantastic moment and totally memorable!

At our wedding, I walked down to "All I Ever Wanted" by Jim Brickman. The story behind it was a long, complicated one... I'd originally heard the song as a MIDI on a website, long before I was ever engaged (or even thinking about it), and said then, "I'm walking down the aisle to that song." I saved the song to my computer and moved along.

 

Years later, when I was getting married, I went back to the website to find the song... and found they had changed all of the music! The computer I had saved it to was long, long gone, and the song was instrumental so I couldn't even Google lyrics for it. I had nothing to go from - no title, no artist, no lyrics. I looked for another song, but nothing fit like that one did! I was so crushed.

 

Finally one day, I was going through old data discs in search of an essay, and... there it was. I had backed up that old computer on this disc, and the song was right there!

 

We are debating for our vow renewal what to walk down to. I think we'll walk together to "Babe", which was our first dance song.
