Wedding Music

Help wanted!

As you may have spotted, Mr Rothera and I are tying the knot in a few weeks time, but we still haven't chosen what music to have when we walk up the aisle and back again.

We know what we don't want. No Celine Dion, No Whitney Houston, and Robbie Williams. But we still have no idea what we do want.

Should we go for traditional music? If so, which 2 pieces should we chose?

Or should we go for something more recent?

Suggestions gratefully received. Big Grin

Do you want popular or classical Rothera?

Personally I'd go for classical as it's timeless. If you choose a pop song, it may become a tired cliche and something you regret when you look back at the videos in years to come.

I have no experience in this department but I think classical would be best too. Like Nox said, other things could go way past their sell by date.

Rothera,
Congratulations.
I've stuck to the traditional music for going down and coming up the aisle. Wagner's- Here comes the Bride and The Wedding March by Mendelssohn for after the ceremony. We liked the idea of going for something more recent but have decided on the traditional because we couldn't decide on what to pick(we're having a hard enough time picking our first dance song :laugh: ) and felt it was the right choice for us.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

That is exactly what I was worried about. I didn't want to chose I song which I really like now, but in a few years time I will be blushing and turning down the sound when I rewatch the video.

But then again, Isis's suggestion of Zero 7 does have its attractions. Big Grin

Enya has a really beautiful album - I THINK it was her third - that contains some really haunting music. I played one of the tracks at my wedding. It really is beautiful and uplifting.

I had to parade through a busy hotel to the extremely loud accompaniment of Here Comes The Bride. It was terrifying but fabulous at the same time. I don't think I had a choice about the music, but I think I would have felt a bit cheated if i hadn't had it.

Dunno what kind of wedding you're having Roth, but there's always a place for a bit of tradition, IMO :cool2:

One of the main factors influencing your choice of music, surely has to be whether there's an organist present or you need to rely on a CD player. Is it a church wedding or a registry office?

Of course, if you're feeling really flush you can hire part of the string section of the Philharmonic Orchestra like Charles and Camilla did Smile

If there's an organist you may as well use him/her. Perhaps some Bach or Handel - something popular that people will recognise - although you'll need to confer with the organist to see what they can cope with first.

I'd be tempted to go for something like 'The arrival of the Queen of Sheba' - it's very uplifting and it'll make you soar every time you listen to it afterwards.
