What song you walking down the aisle to??

I've never been to a wedding where the bride didn't walk down the aisle to the traditional bridal march, so when I try to imagine walking down the aisle to something else, well, I really can't because I have nothing to go on. So what song are you walking down the aisle to? Does anyone think that a song with words may be a little distracting? If you have any instrumental versions of songs that you would like to share that would be great! Also, here is a list of songs that I thought about using somewhere in my ceremony (originally I thought'd I'd walk down the aisle to one of them, but not sure which- now I may wanna go instrumental, IDK!). I appreciate honest opinions! Thanks!


This I promise You –Ronan Keating
Angel –Jack Johnson
Marry Me –Train
Beautiful Mess- Jason Mraz
Mama’s Song- Carrie Underwood
Lost In This Moment- Big and Rich
Only you can love me this way- Keith Urban
Make you feel my love- Adele

I'm walking down to "Fools Rush In" by Elvis.  :)  It was my parents song, and my dad passed away so it has meaning. 


You should close your eyes and try and picture yourself walking down to something.  What would you want playing when your FI lays eyes on you the first time?  You will find what works for you.  :)  (sorry I wasn't much help, I just knew what song I wanted.  I could feel it!)

I walked down to Pacabel's Canon - its normally for the bridal party but I loved it so I walked down to it.  We walked back together to the Beatle "All You Need Is Love".  Pick what you want and what you think will make you feel comfortable.  I remember every second because I tied it to songs we love.  :)

This is one of the things I am keeping a secret, but I will say, I will be singing to my FI during the ceremony, not sure if it will be during my walk or when I get to the altar, he doesn't even know I am doing this, it's a total surprise.

A considered the Adele song myself.  It's a perfect fit. I haven't decided quite yet.

I am walking down the aisle to The vitamin string quartet's version of Kelly clarkson's Sober. Its a strange song to pick, but its so beautiful. We are coming back up the aisle to  The Cure's Just like Heaven. My poor minister father, just doesn't know what to think about it all.

I am walking down to "Love Story Meets Viva La Vida" by Jon Schmidt. It's so beautiful that it makes me cry! It's instrumental with piano and cello. I edited it to cut out about the first minute and a half since I only have about a 75 second walk down the aisle. We're musicians so the music is crucial to us and my walk down the aisle has to coincide perfectly with the music. :)


But you can hear the whole thing here:

I am walking down the aisle to "clocks" by Coldplay. I always knew it was the one- so I 'm not turning back.


 


Try Angel, it's a nice song!
