    I am considering walking down the aisle to Kenny Chesney's Me and You.....and during the signing of the register playing This Ring.....google it girls its a great song, I have never heard of the artist before or the song but its a really nice wedding song...and then I am thinking of playing after the wedding on our way out One Love by Bob Marley, in keeping with the Jamaican theme!!! I am still trying to decide what the bridal party walk into whether its the same song or a different one....perhaps Kenny G's the wedding song...its just a musical prelude!

      love it!!! watson twins also do a very nice version ... i *think* i'm using the string quartet tribute verson tho. still unsure, since i kinda also fell in love with t. carter music's highland serenade celtic version of canon in D (fiance is irish, we're going to ireland for honeymoon!). maybe i'll end up using the string quartet tribute to the cure for my girls ... i had planned on using the somewhere over the rainbow thing, but my MOH just saw it used in someone's video and she was like, "duh, that's hawaiian, not mexican." i always just considered it beachy (and love the song), but now i'll feel kinda stupid for using it.

        I am totally not even a Twilight fan but after seeing the movie I fell in love with the song that 'edward' plays on the piano for bella.. its called 'bella's lullaby' by Carter Burwell. And possibly 'River flows in you' by Yiruma since we have a large wedding party and I dont know how long we need. They are both very pretty paino melodies which is perfect cause I dont want any singing/lyrics..

              OMG....This may be it. I've listened to this song thousands of times and absolutely love it. Until I saw your post I'd never thought of walking down to this. So glad I viwed this thread
              Im walking down to Finally by Fergie. Most of my friends haven't even heard the song. But it's so beautiful. And soooo me.

                  OH MY!!!! So I already found my song, and I love the instrumentals. Then I went back after reading all your songs and looked up the lyrics. Lets just say it isn't the most love inspirational song.

                  BUT

                  I am in love with the instrumentals and even the lyrics.

                  I am walking down the isle to........

                  " This years love" by David Gray
                  (i am obsessed with the piano in the beginning of this song and even the lyrics that start the song:
                  Heaven knows it's high time
                  I've been waiting on my own, too long
                  When you hold me like you do
                  It feels so right, oh now


                  The music to me is so beautiful and when I hear it I totally see myself walking down the isle focused on my FI and my mind all wrapped around the moment and the piano playing in this song.

                  I have to include we are a more non-traditional couple so here is the rest of our music line up:

                  bridal processional:
                  "Can't get enough of your love" Barry White (I do expect them to dance down the isle)

                  recessional: after they announce us husband and wife they will start
                  "You're the first, my last, my Everything" Barry White right where Barry White says -"We've got it together baby, (then it breaks into fun instrumental then) You're the first, my last, my everything... your the sun, the moon, the guiding star, my kind of wonderful that is what you are...." We plan to dance down the isle....

                  I have to say I am really excited....

                  Then when they welcome our wedding party I think we may have them play "Let's get it started" by Black Eyed Peas and when they introduce us we are a little torn but thinking "Remember the Times" by Michael Jackson....

                  We are a party bunch and want this to be all about a celebration more than a ceremony. So we felt the music, well and our friends, will set the tone.


                  would love feedback...

So my question is.....how do you make a smooth transition from one song to the other when your using your IPOD?
                      I have the same question about making a smooth transition between songs. Anyone have suggestions?? or is there a post about this?
