What songs did you/are you using for your ceremony?

Mon Feb 21, 2011 6:22 pm

We are trying to come up with a list to give to our celebrant, and just can't decide on suitable music for the prelude/walk down the aisle/recessional - any suggestions would be delightfully appreciated! :D

Hey,

We've decided to be slightly alternative. I'm walking down the aisle to "Luna" by The Smashing Pumpkins and then we're having "Don't Worry Baby" by The Beach Boys and "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles immediately after the ceremony.

Are you after something classic or alternative?

I walked down the aisle to Kate Miller-Heidke's "space they can not touch", then we had “fly me to the moon” and “you belong to me” (most recently done by Jason Wade) while we were signing and then Jewels “Stay” as we walked out of the chapel.

BUT…we recorded our own versions of them all. My husband plays guitar and I sing (although not as well as I used to). My brother is a sound engineer so he recorded the whole thing for us and did an AMAZING job at making us sound better than we really are. The idea came about because we wanted "space they can not touch" as our song, but we wanted to lose the last line (“I just hope I am good enough to keep you”…wasn’t really the right sentiment.) So we did our own version of them all. I love that we have these incredibly special songs now that are 100% truly us. I have them on my iPhone and every so often they come up when I have it on shuffle which is very cool. Takes me right back to the wedding.

I'm not having traditional wedding songs, we are going more for the comical angle :wink: :lol:

Walking down the aisle Marry You - Bruno Mars (thinking of having the Glee version though!)
Signing the Certificate Sign Sealed Delivered - Stevie Wonder
Walking up the aisle - My life would suck without you - Kelly Clarkson, All I want is you - Barry Louis Polisar

I walked down the aisle to "Watch Over Me" by Bernard Fanning, had a beautiful piano version of "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica, done by Scott D Davis, and then walking back up the aisle we had "Burn Your Name" by Powderfinger. We have rather alternative taste so picking music was a struggle but we were really happy with the way these choices went over :)

Good luck

Thank you for these suggestions - I think we are definitely on the alternative side, although we don't want anything too outrageous. I love the alternative songs that everyone has suggested, and I think I will be spending some time trolling through itunes seeing if any of them will be suitable for us!

On the way down and I think during the signing...Somewhere over the Rainbow - Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwoʻole http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1bFr2SWP1I

At the conclusion of the ceremony Dog days are over - Florence + The Machine

'Our' songs would have made us cry so I choose songs that made me smile (and HB signed off on them!!)

Our song is Everything by Lifehouse :heart: the intro is long and soft enough for BMs and myself to walk down the aisle and the words are perfect :)
