    Everyone's songs are so great! We finally decided that I will walk down to Canon in F and the girls will walk down to somewhere over rainbow/wonder life from 50 first dates.
    Our Honeymoon In Ireland!!

      I really like the song, but, I'm not sure if I want to walk down the aisle with singing...but, that's the best part of the song!
      Also, now my FI thinks that I shouldn't use it now since it was on American Idol last night!
      Rhonda,

      I think its up to you whether you want to do the same song for everyone, or a bridal party and then bride song. I'm going to be doing one for everyone-- and I think heading down to Jason Mraz sounds awesome. I think the whole "instrumental only thing" is silly.

        Oooh, I can do the same song for the bridesmaids and myself? AWESOME!

        4-5 minutes seems SO long to me though...does it honestly take that long to walk the aisle? In my mind it takes like...30 seconds. That brings up another question I have too...how do you guys walk up the aisle? As in, do you just stroll, or do you do the old traditional right-together-left-together? And if you just walk, do you try to walk to the beat, or do you just walk normally?

            I'm currently debating between beyonce's "Dangerously in Love" or keyshia cole's "heaven". I LOVE them both!

              Hey Binzer,
              I think I'm going to try and stroll and normally as possible, slower than usual, but as natural as possible. I've never been a fan or the right, left, together-- it's too regimented.

              We're all in a beautiful tropical locale, which I think screams flowy, casual and laid back. Regimented steps just don't seem to do any of our destinations any justice. lol

                Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure if it was normal to do 2 songs...I kinda like the idea of changing songs for the bridal entrance and walk....I think it might heighten the drama...you know what I mean But, I'm sure both are fine.

                I agree with the whole "instrumental only thing". Although, I don't think I've ever been to a wedding where the bridal walk wasn't only instrumental.
                But, I guess, we're not doing anything traditional..afterall, we're doing it in Mexico! :)

                    For the the last year I was set on using "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," until about a week ago when I heard Amy Seeley's "Gravel Lines". Although it doesn't sound beachy or really romantic, my mind was flooded with the memories of the night that FI and I first met and is remnant of our unfolding story.

                      Amy Seeley has a beautiful voice, and her music is classic sounding enough that I don't think you need to worry! SotR is a great song, but I think it's nice to use something more personal if you can find something that resonates with you and your FI as a couple. Even if you don't use that song as a processional, you should use it for something! There are more than enough "song slots" to fill :P
