What are you walking down the Aisle to?

Recommended Posts

What a great bunch of songs on here! 

 

I am just wondering, forgive me if this is a silly question, but when does the Groom and best mangrooms men walk in...do they get a song as well? 

 

Also, if doing a symbolic ceremony I think I have seen that we sign a certificate to make it look "official" but is this a long process that will also require a song, or not?

We did not do a song for groom, but you can do it if you want to and we did a song for signing registrar, it is not very long process, but long enough to have it is own song :D

I am walking down the aisle to 'Forever' by Ben Harper and my fiance and my first dance is to 'Love of My Life" by Dave Matthews and Santana and the father/daughter dance is going to be to "That's How Strong My Love Is" by Otis Redding.

 

I am just struggling to come up with a good mother/son song.

 

Here are the lyrics for 'Forever' by Ben Harper

 

Not talkin' 'bout a year
No not three or four
I don't want that kind of forever
In my life anymore
Forever always seems
to be around when it begins
but forever never seems
to be around when it ends
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do From you

People spend so much time
Every single day
Runnin' 'round all over town
Givin' their forever away
But no not me
I won't let my forever roam
and now I hope I can find
my forever a home
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

Like a handless clock with numbers
An infinite of time
No not the forever found
Only in the mind
Forever always seems
to be around when things begin
but forever never seems
to be around when things end
So give me your forever
Please your forever
Not a day less will do
From you

 

Here are the lyrics for 'Love of My Life" by Dave Matthews and Santana

 

Where you are, that's where I wanna be
And through your eyes, all the things I wanna see
And in the night, you are my dream
You're everything to me

Chorus:
You're the love of my life
And the breath in my prayers
Take my hand, lead me there
What I need is you here

I can't forget the taste of your mouth
From your lips the heavens pour out
I can't forget when we are one
With you alone I am free

Bridge:
Everyday, every night, you alone
You're the love of my life
Everyday, every night, you alone,
You're the love of my life

Outro:
We go dancing in the moonlight
With the starlight in your eyes
We go dancing till the sunrise
You and me we're gonna dance, dance, dance

Love Ben Harper! We aren't going to use him for the first dance because FI already had something in mind, but I want to incorporate a song of his somewhere. Hadn't thought about walking down the aisle, but that could be an option!

I don't think it's a silly question. We had a song for the groom (combined with the ringbearer; we didn't have any groomsmen). He chose 1,2,3,4 by the Plain White T's.

 

As for the signing, I think it would be nice to have a song for it but if you choose not to, then that's fine too! :) We didn't do that but we did a greeting of our parents and the guests for which we played a song as well.

We leave Tuesday but still have a few decisions yet to make regarding dance songs and cake cutting song.  However, our ceremony music is finalized as is our reception entrance song and dinner music.  For the ceremony we have a violinist.  It was challenging to decide but we are going more classical with some of these choices:

 

Processional:  Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

Bride:  Canon in D

Sand Ceremony Music:  "Storybook Love" by Mark Knopfler (from "The Princess Bride")

Recessional:  La Rejouissance

I am still in my early planning stages although so far I love the following songs...just bit sure where to incorporate where yet - but will share my initial thoughts - AND I AM SURE THEY WILL CHANGE 100 TIMES!  LOL!

 

  1. Marry Me Train  - predictable, huh? - maybe maybe maybe walk down the aisle to an acoustic no lyric version
  2. We Are Man & Wife - Michelle Featherstone - maybe while we sign the civil/legal ceremony documents
  3. A Thousand Years - Christina Perri
  4. This Years Love - David Gray  - another option to walking down the aisle or entrance of FI & ring bearer (no groomsmen)
  5. Run - Matt Nathanson & Sugarland - not sure, but love it!!
  6. Will You Still Love Me - Amy Tiger - First Dance or You & Me - Lifehouse - which is OUR SONG
