What songs are you/did you during your processional?

My wedding planner is asking that we start thinking of our processional music and we're sort of at a a loss. We will have live music instrumentals performed, either by a guitarist or violinist (we are leaning more toward guitar).

we need three songs:


- wedding party

- bride/father of the bride

The planner suggested:

- What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

- Somewhere Over the Rainbow

- "Bridal Chorus" by Wagner

And to be honest, I kinda hate them all. We're looking for something a little more modern but that most of our guest list will be familiar with.

That being said, what are you all choosing? Maybe it'll strike a chord for us (pun intended).

    Yeaaaaah those songs that were recommended are pretty terrible. I am planning to walk down the aisle to "marry me" by train. Swoon! "First day of my life" by bright eyes was also in the running.

    I loved my music! We had the grandparents go to the "main theme" from the notebook, my bridal party went down to a Sam Yung violin/piano instrumental of the song "Army" by Elli Goulding, and I walked down to a piano instrumental Sam Yung cover of "This Love" by Taylor Swift.

    If you have a song you love, see if there's a good instrumental cover for it. We also used a violin instrumental of "All of Me"

    My bridesmaids are walking in to La Vie En Rose by Louis Armstrong and I'm walking down the aisle to I Want You by Tom Waits. It's one of my fh's favorite songs.

    Thanks all!! I'm going to look some of these up!

    Also thinking it may be a good idea to look at songs from some of our favorite romantic movies.

    I got you girl:

    YouTube "Rather Be violin" it's the top one by D-Sharp. It's soooo beautiful and a modern song people know. It's what I'm using. I LOVE how upbeat it is. I think it will make me excited and happy, rather than those somber sad tear jerker songs people often opt for.

    I broke my processional into the same groups.

    Grandparents and parents walked to an instrumental of "Can you feel the love tonight." BP's song was a violin instrumental on "Say You Won't Let Go." My Dad and I walked to The Piano Guys" version of "A Thousand Years"
