    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)

          Tell me if I'm crazy

            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 searched through those threads and most people are doing semi-traditional stuff (in my opinion), thus I started this thread. Sorry if I shouldn't have.

                  Thanks Ashley!

                  I like your thread :) Do you have any thoughts on what music you want to use for what?

                    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!
