    Cancel. But I absolutely love the Canon I fee like it makes me feel even more like a bride than the wagener song, when I'll walk down the aisle!

    Cancel....I wanted something the means something to me. I’m walking down the aisle to “At Last” by Cyndi Lauper. At last I finally found someone who can love me for me, as well as my four kiddos.

    Cancel! I honestly can't stand that song. My mom was really upset when I first told her I didn't want to walk down the aisle to it, but she's mostly over it now.

    I'm not sure what we'll do! We are still in the process of picking songs, we still have lots of time.

    Cancel. I have heard Canon in D at a few other weddings and like the sound of that better.

    KEEP! We're having string players at our ceremony so it's only appropriate they play this song!

    Nope! This isn't common in Jewish and Catholic weddings. Wagner not being a great guy is another reason to avoid this one (and a reason it's not common at Jewish weddings). We are doing a classical song for the entrance though

    Cancel. We're doing a song that is much more "me." I'll be walking to Thank You by Led Zeppelin.

    Cancel. Thought about keeping but decided against it. I've heard too many crass parodies...
