I used the same song for the entire processional (ring bearers, parents, bridesmaid/groomsmen, me): "Over the Rainbow" by Kamakawiwo'ole. I think it's great for a beach wedding. I just wanted to simplify the process with 1 song, and I think that it worked well.
For the recessional, we used "Better Together" by Jack Johnson. ("Beautiful Day" by U2 was the runner up.) First dance was "Stolen" by Dashboard Confessional.

I also like Till there Was You (Beatles), God Only Knows (Beach Boys), The Rainbow Connection (my alltime favourite song!!!)..... so many ideas! I think I am just going to first compile a list of all the songs I want, then allocate them to specific times/people.
Is anyone walking down the aisle to the same song as the bridal party? I only have 2 BM.... Trying to decide if I should have the same song for the parents, groom, and the bridal party, then a separate one for me, or seat the parents right before the processional and then start with just one song for the bms and me.... and maybe come in at the bridge of the song or something....
hmm.... What do you think?
