PROCESSIONAL SONG...PLEASE HELP!

I am getting married at a winery with an outdoor ceremony and am stumped between two songs to walk down the aisle too! What do you think...


A Thousand Year by Christina Perri  OR


November Rain by Guns N Roses (only the first 1:20 of the song before vocals start so it is instrumental).


I am torn!

I love A Thousand Years By Christina Perri! My friend Nicole did that song at her wedding! It was amazing! November Rain by Guns N Roses is an awesome song too! Both great choices!


Our processional song that I chose will be
"I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" by: Aerosmith!

Oh I just love November Rain! Kind of sad though, but that's just my interpretation of it. I don't know the other song, and I can't listen to it right now. Does your FI have any preference as to what he sees you walking in to?

The ONLY issue I have with A Thousand Years is that it seems like everyone is doing it - especially after the last Twilight installment. However, if it is meaningful to you, I would say do it! November Rain is great, but 1:20 is quite short. Are you looping it? Or is it only for when you are walking down the aisle? If it is, you should do both! A Thousand Years for the wedding party and November Rain for you!

I am obsessed with A Thousand Years right now, so my biased opinion is that song.... it really is a great song to walk down the aisle to!

Wow thanks for the help...I have to submit my song by midnight to my DJ so I have until then to decide:(


My fiance doesn't really care what I pick as long as I walk down to him haha


The walk is literally 1 minute-1:10...I am using Canon in D for the wedding party.


Our recessional song is Sweet Child O'Mine by G'N'R so I dont know if that is too much Axl Rose lol

If you want to do A Thousand Years, maybe you can have the DJ source out an instrumental version? I mean, at least then you get the spirit of the song and not the fact that it's a little Twilight-y? Also, it can possibly flow with Canon in D and then you can wow your guests with some G'N'R?

LOL @ "too much Axl Rose"!


I'm a little biased towards "A Thousand Years" as well, just because it is beautiful. But I love the beginning to November Rain! Two great choices!

I LOVE November Rain.  It is my favorite song by G&R.  I would totally rock that song if it were me.
