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

Thanks Serenity...Although I can sing very well, I am scared to death of singing in public, I have "stage fright", the only way I can sing in public is if I am in my church's choir, and I request to be in the back :/

My husband chose "You are so beautiful" by Ray Charles for me to walk down the aisle to instead of the traditional march. Actually, he was responsible for all the ceremony & reception music. And that decision ended up being one of the best decisions that I made when it came to wedding planning ;) 


Speaking of tradition, I think that a lot of brides are doing something more "out of the box" in order to make their wedding day special! For instance, we decided to hire a jazz trio instead of a typical string quartet. It made our ceremony music more unique & upbeat!!!

BTW...I vote for "Only you can love me this way" by Keith Urban, or "Make you feel my love" by Adele because those songs are incredible!

I walked in to "The Arrival of the Birds" from Cinematic Orchestra. 


It's all instrumental, but it's beautiful!

I love the idea of using "You are so beautiful". Thanks for the inspiration Butterflygap10. It's such a simple and lovely song.

You - by Jesse Powell :-) I love that song. The song might make me cry more so than seeing the groom.

I'm walking to Golden by Chrisette Michele. I was going to walk to Vitamin String Quartet's tribute to Coldplay, Fix You but I decided to have my BP walk down to that. This way I get to have both beautiful songs and not have to choose between them. I love Pachelbel's Canon in D but wanted something different.

@Alliesauce - I am using Vitamin String Quartet based off recommendations on PW and by my acutal DJ for the Prelude... he was telling my FI and I funny stories about how much of a conversational piece this music turns into while guests are sitting there waiting.... I liked how the guests would be interacting even before the night officially would begin!!!

I'm pretty set on Eric Clapton's "wonderful tonight" in instrumental http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCBJSMvT0XQ


for a TON of options to listen to, try searching "vitamin string quartet" on itunes and you can sample like a gazillion songs.... or even easier--- try searching for the song you're looking for via google with "vitamin string quartet" after it and youtube videos usually come up :)  good luck!!


Ooo.. and another one great one in instrumental is "can't help falling in love" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGvmtYjbNNc

Alliesauce - I LOVE Once!!


I am doing a "traditional" piano piece, but it will be fun either way.


One of the most beautiful walks down the aisle I saw was a girl who walked down to the Beatles' "In My Life".  It was incredible, and so perfectly beautiful.  :)

I'm walking in (by myself) to this version of Amazing Grace, by Andre Rieu.  I chose the song and my fiancee fell in love with this version - brought tears to his eyes when he thought of me walking in to it!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOkut5lxBjg


We will walk out the more upbeat version by Louis Armstrong.
