    Cancel for sure. Never wanted to hear this walking down the aisle. Everyone will know when I'm coming. Haha

    Cancel without a doubt. I want a song that means something to me, and is heartfelt rather than formal.

    Cancel please! It’s traditional. An although there’s nothing wrong with tradition, I would rather have my own choice of songs to play that will be significant to us.

    Cancel. I am going to have something played on the keys. Thinking of "This is why I love you" by Major.

    Yeah, cancel. I never liked it to start with. I’ll be waking down to Once Upon A Time. From The princess bride.

    Say goodbye! It's way too overused and to traditional
