Since we are having a destination wedding and not real big on tradition, I want a song that I can walk down the aisle with that is not "Here comes the Bride" I listen to most genres of music. I dont really want a mushy lovey dovey song that will make me cry. But I dont want a "twerk" it song eitther LOL. I need help! The wedding is in Jamaica. So can if you all start spouting some out I would love it! Title and Artist if possible.

    Look up music by Vitamin String Quartet. They basically do versions on a lot of songs. Like rock, pop, maybe even country. But they are soooo great. Go to their website and you can find all the album's they've done to see what artists you can choose from and preview them there or on YouTube.

    You could have your DJ do a mashup of different songs... I'm going to walk down to the chorus of Best Day of my Life by American Authors

    Is there a song you and FH like a lot that you can just find the instrumental version to?? If you want something with an island vibe I think of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. There is an instrumental with a Ukulele that I think sounds really pretty.

    I am going to do Storybook Love (Princess Bride theme song). But if you're doing Jamaica what about Bob Marley's One Love?

    Ironically the song "Here Comes a Bride" is originally in a German play in which the song plays while a young virgin is pretty much dragged to her new husband's (whom she does not know) bedchamber to consummate their marriage. The marriage is an immediate failure and the play later ends with tragedy and the young girl's death. The composer, Wagner, found it quite hilarious when it began being used in weddings. In fact several Lutheran churches forbid it to be played.

    Sorry to get all wiki facts on you, just had to share. Smiley smile

    So I have always hated this song. Thanks MrsS for the interesting facts!!!

    I am walking down to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    What about Bob Marley's This is Love. Too cliche for Jamacia?

    Look up The Piano Guys. They also do instrumental covers of popular songs. I'm walking into their version of the Bruno Mars song "Just the Way You Are."

    I chose "To a Wild Rose" by Edward McDowell. I wanted something classical but not the bridal march.

    MrsSchultz, I was originally planning to walk to the original version of a thousand years, and never knew about the piano version. I just listened to a piano and cello version and started tearing up and immediately decided it was the one. Thank you!
