Anyone using non-traditional music?

Recommended Posts

Please share with us your non-traditional music for the first dance, processional, recessional.... everything!!!




We are trying to pick our songs and we are not so traditional. I don't want to walk down the aisle to Canon in D or anything like that, so I was hoping BDW could help out!

Depends what you consider non-traditional. I won't be using any classical music at all - I'm not completely decided yet but these are my ideas.


I don't have a bridal party so it's basically FI, then me with my parents.


FI will walk down to Hangin By A Moment from Lifehouse


I think I'd like to walk down the aisle to The Dixie Chicks "Lullaby" although it's incredibly slow. 2nd choice is Jason Mraz "I'm Yours"


Now if I get my way we would walk back to "Ladies and Gentlemen" by Saliva or "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor"...but I'm not sure if he'll go for that, but we will probably do something extremely nontraditional like that.


First Dance will be Matt White "Best Days" - We saw him live about a week after we got engaged and stood right in front of him when he sang that song. I cry every time I hear it.

Hi Ashley,


If you go on the thread about "Music and entertainment" there are alot of post there on what songs people are using for their wedding. I got some ideas from there for my own wedding

Good luck

I got very excited when I saw this post because I felt like the only one!


Ok so nothing is set in stone yet but here are my ideas:


Wedding party processional - "Feeling Good" Michael Buble (my mother hates this idea)

Brides processional - "Something" The Beatles

Recessional - "I Want to Break Free" Queen

Wedding party & Bride & Groom reception entrance - "Black & Gold" Sam Sparro

First Dance "Look After You" The Fray (song gets me choked up so I'm still looking)

Like Jenny said - there are oodles of threads about this topic! Please use the search function before starting new topics - the mods like to keep things from being duplicated!


Here are a couple of the big ones!





And, I think this day & age, especially with DWs, most people don't pick the traditional "here comes the bride" music! We had Dave Matthews Band "Steady as we Go" as our first dance.

I would like to use (Like I'm talking VERY non-traditional here):


Avenged Sevenfold - Warmness on the soul for something (not sure what yet)

Big Wig - Moosh (our song, but it's too fast paced to slow dance to for our first dance)


That's all I have so far! I suck at this making decisions!

Haha that's awesome and you're right, completely non-traditional! I say do what you want and what you'll enjoy :)


People have got to respect being original and sticking to your very own style!


Good luck, when you decide, let me know!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
