    Cancel. I’m doing a classical jazz ballad by my FH favorite singer as a surprise. He’s doing an upbeat more energetic song by his second favorite artist.

    Cancel. I'm either having "Arioso" by Bach, or "Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini." I originally wanted "Canon in D," but decided that too many brides use that too. I want to be different!

    Cancel, we’re doing acoustic versions of songs we actually like. I’m also having the officiant ask people to stay seated when I come in for the benefit of my fellow short people.

    Music is so important to my fiance and I so we will be canceling and choosing something more meaningful to us. Don't think keeping is bad if you like it though.

    I switched it up a bit. I'm doing a reggae version of here comes the bride. I have taken out a lot of the old school stuff and made it my own.

    Cancel. The song you walk to should fit with you and if that is traditional than great but if not than you should be able to pick which ever song you want.

    Lose it! I'm not sure what I'm walking in to, but I'm thinking something fun and meaningful to us. Or maybe itll be our song because were not planning on dancing.

    Keep. I’m more traditional and love the song as you walk down the aisle.

    Keeping. It's super cheesy, but I can't imagine walking down the aisle to anything else.
