Can anyone think of a song that would sound good played on a steel drum? We're having a steel drummer playing during the ceremony and I need ideas!!

 

On I tunes there is Trinidad Steel Drum Band- they have hits like Island in the Sun by Weezer and a few others.  Sometimes its hit or miss. :)

  We are thinking of using a steel drum while guests are being seated and for the ceremony.  Some ideas I have are "Is This Love" - maybe while guests are being seated???  "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for the bridal party walking down the islse.  "Pachelbel's Canon in D" for myself walking down the isle, and maybe "One Love" for our recessional.  These are just my initial ideas - just realized this is something we need to work on!! 

I'd take any other suggestions too for the ceremony or reception.  It can be a little overwhelming with all the music choices!

I was going to go with the traditional wedding song but this thread gave me sooo many ideas! Thanks for sharing.

we had two good songs to walk down the aisle to that worked well for my husband's and my style and our relationship.  The first was Eddie Vedder - Longing to Belong and the second was Bright Eyes - First Day of my Life (which we used to come back down the aisle together for).  It's a pretty cute song.

I like the idea of being able to walk down the aisle to a non-traditional song. I debated for a long time, and I think I'm going to use Jason Mraz's I Won't Give Up. The lyrics are beautiful, and it made me tear listening to it.
