    Cancel - I love the "original" song but I feel that these days there are so many songs that could fit each brides own style.

    BIG cancel - I will be walking down the aisle to "You Are My Sunshine" by Michael Hanley. It's special to my fiancé and it made me tear up when I first heard it so I knew it was the one! I knew I for SURE wouldn't be walking to the Wedding March. It's not me at all.

    That's going to be a hard pass for me! I'm walking down the aisle to an instrumental version of "a million dreams" from The Greatest Showman.

    Cancel.

    Had flirted with the idea, but when browsing the forums, came across "Hogwarts Hymn", and I'm a Ravenclaw and a Potterhead, so HP it is!

    Cancel. I don’t care for tradition anymore. None of the wedding I went to used this either.
