    Cancel! It's so boring. I plan on doing something way more beautiful sounding than that.

    We are cancelling this. My sister is a singer and she surprised us and wrote us a song. We will be using that when I walk down the aisle.

    Cancel. I don't think I've ever heard this at a wedding in real life only on TV

    CANCEL WITH ALL MY MIGHT!!! This song is so cliche. Also who wants to play a tune for their wedding by a man who was an open anti-semitist? Not me. One thing is for certain IMO, and that's the bridal music library needs some new material.

    Cancel. We just chose our songs. The family will be seated to a portion of "this is it" by Scotty McCreery. My flower girls and partner are walking down to "here comes the sun" (instrumental) by the beetles and my partner is choosing my song which is going to be a surprise to me. (And I'm nervous about it). Our recessional is " I choose you" by Sara Bareilles. And our first dance song is " what I never knew I always wanted" by Carrie Underwood.

    Cancel. I'm using an old school n64 game melody called "Sheiks Lullaby". It's absolutely beautiful and has been a song that I loved since childhood. That means more to me than "HERE COMES THE BRIDE! DAAA DAAAAHHHH DAH DAHHHH"

    I loath the Wedding Match! However, this one is not about me. When I spoke with my elders about entering on a different song, they seemed disappointed and hurt that traditions could change so easily. So, for tradition, I must "keep." However, I appreciate those voting CANCEL. Hehehe
