    I am having trouble picking some songs for the prelude/processional/recessional. I don't want the traditional Cannon in D, Here comes the bride and the Bridal march. Any ideas on good songs or websites that have more modern songs to choose from? Also what were your ceremony songs. I plan on having a romantic trio for the ceremony.

        are you opposed to just letting the trio pick the songs and just play whatever? that's what we did! i can see where that won't work for everyone, to let them have control.

          My BM's, the flower girls and ring bearers are walking down to Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo'ole's "Somerwhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World" song. I'm walking down to Stevie Wonder's "You Are the Sunshine of My Life". We have a mariachi band playing for the cocktail hour. They are going to start as soon as the Judge introduces us, so we have no idea what that song will be... only that it's festive. Ole!

            No, I'm not opposed to letting the trio pick. I just want something different than the traditional stuff. I guess if I tell them not to do the traditional stuff they will pick something good, it is what they do for a living!!

            I'd still like to get an idea of what others are walking down the aisle to.

              i didn't want traditional either - i just told my trio to play something "appropriate" - i actually have no idea what they played - i didn't even notice!

                  well, really i just didn't want to bother picking the music ... it all comes down to laziness! :) lol paul picked all of our music - even our first dance (it was a surprise to me) - i'm really not a music person - which is why i was ok with just letting them do their thing.
