"Here Comes The Bride" (aka Wagner's Bridal Chorus) is the traditional old-school processional song. Do you still love this dramatic bridal march? Or are you ready to say goodbye to this old organ song in favor of more contemporary and personal musical selections?

Where do you stand on "Here Comes The Bride"? Keep or cancel?

    Cancel!. Not sure what I’ll use yet, but that feels too formal for me and doesn’t sound like me or us.

    I like it but my ceremony is out doors and reception inside so unfortunately there isn't a way to set up music outside properly. So I'll have a quiet spoken word only ceremony.

    Cancel. My cousin is a concert pianist and will be playing the keyboard. I told her just to surprise us with whatever she wants to play. She hates the bridal March song tho so that definitely will not be played. I'm totally fine with that

    Cancel! I have a new modern bridal chorus that I’m walking to and it is nothing like the older ones. It has an ethereal magical sound to it.
