Hi!

My fiance is a musician, so he is having all of our music customized.

He and all of the groomsmen will come in to bagpipers at the beginning of the wedding. His mom's side of the family is REALLY Scottish, so this is a tradition they do at all weddings.

Both of my parents have passed away, so my brother and sister will be walking me down the isle together. Because I know that people will be really emotional, we've decided to do a twist on the traditional "here comes the bride" song. I figure if I can smile and laugh I can't cry, right? My fiance is having one of his friends play the cello. He's arranged  "here comes the bride" - to move into "cum on feel the noise" by Quiet Riot, then back to "here comes the bride". When played on the cello and really slow, it's not obvious at all. It actually sounds like a different arrangement of the song - so only our friends and family who know about it will get the joke, but most importantly it will keep me from crying (at least about my parents!). I don't expect his elderly grandfather to catch it at all.

Our first dance is going to be "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service. He and his guitarist have arranged a slowed down version of it just on the acoustic guitar. His guitarist (the best man) will sing it live for us at the reception while we dance.

For the reception we are having all of his musician friends & bands that we love play short little sets of our favorite songs in between a playlist we are giving the sound guy.

Music has always been really important in our relationship, so it should be a really fun night!

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

We're trying to very subtly infuse the party with some of our personality (e.g. Mii cake toppers ; p)  We were talking the other night about video game music (my fiance loves it, we help out at a vg music radio show every week) and how to most people it would just sound like pleasant classical music.  So we're thinking about playing some during dinner, and were also thinking about incorporating Love and Peace from Earthbound into the ceremony somewhere (you can hear it here, but we have a much nicer orchestral version from an album I got in Japan a while back: http://www.earthboundhq.com/soundtrack.htm ). 

Oooh! I'm going to have to track down that song, my fiancee loves earthbound. It'd be great if I could suprise him with that song playing during the wedding!

We were married in an outdoor rose garden and originally wanted a string quartet.  We contacted a few local places, but it ended up being a bit out of our budget.  One of the quartets worked with us and we hired the viola and string guitar to play together instead.  It was BEAUTIFUL hearing the music echo through the gardens.  Here they are (love them!):


They played a 30 minute prelude as the guests were being seated.  Here are the songs we asked them to freely choose from during that time:
  • Air on the G String J. S. Bach
  • Canon in D J. Pachelbel
  • Jesu, Joy of Mans Desiring J. S. Bach
  • Ode to Joy L. van Beethoven
  • Wachet Auf (Sleepers Awake) J. S. Bach
  • Close to You Carpenters
  • If Bread
  • In My Life The Beatles
  • Longer Dan Fogelberg
  • Morning Has Broken Cat Stevens
  • Time in a Bottle Jim Croce
  • Unchained Melody
  • What a Wonderful World Louis Armstrong

Then we chose special songs for the rest...
  • Our parents, sibling and grandparents were then escorted down the aisle to The Rose Bette Midler because it's my MIL's favorite song.
  • The Best Man, Maid of Honor and Flower girl walked own the aisle to Just the Way You Are Billy Joel.
  • My dad and I walked down the aisle to Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin R. Wagner.
  • mr.sweets4ever and I walked back down the aisle to When Im Sixty-Four The Beatles! Cheesy

We did all of our reception music via a laptop and sound system, but our first dance was At Last - Etta Jameshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUdtG3Er_-s%20

"Ctenophore" by Paul Breton.

We ran away to marry (promise my whole life with all those PEOPLE watching?!?  eek!) - our best friends stood up with us in the JP's living room.  A few weeks later we had a huge reception in an attempt to un-offended the relatives.  At the reception, the aforementioned best friends gave us a surprise gift: a love song in honor of my favorite bioluminescent invertebrate (glow in the dark jellyfish-like critters, it doesn't get cooler than that!).  Without making you read the entire lyrics, here's the chorus:


Hey kids, this ain't no jellyfish
Or a situation to ignore
Just for awhile, no, not them
They cast the light of the ctenophore.


Ain't that sweet?

Ohh snaaap. My fiance loves Earthbound too! I am definitely going to have to remember this. (I totally embroidered him a pillowcase with Ness and Mr. Saturn and Abstract Art and some others on it!)

When we got married, my husband and I had so much fun putting together our playlist for the ceremony. We used a mp3 player for the ceremony and we had a mix of different songs playing- everything from The Gilligan's Island theme song, to string versions of Tool and Red Hot Chili peppers to jack johnson and Ani Difranco. We had an outdoor, low-key wedding.

As for the specific songs:
The wedding party walked down to the theme song from Indiana Jones. My parents and I walked down the Throne Room from the end of Star Wars VI. (you can tell I have a thing for John Williams ). My husband and I walked up the isle at the end of the ceremony to Accidentally in Love from the Shrek sound track.

We had a lot of fun with our music too!  In fact, one of the reasons we decided to forego a Catholic wedding is because they wouldnt let me have anything that wasnt instrumental or Christian  Roll Eyes  we had a DJ, but everything except general dance time was decided upon by...me.  not even the hubby and i, just me (he's not that into music and just listens to whatever i want, so, okay)

prelude - Longer (Dan Fogelberg), All I Know (Art Garfunkel), And I Love You So (Don McLean), If (Bread), Perhaps Love (John Denver and Placido Domingo), etc.

attendants all walked in to - Song for the Asking (Simon and garfunkel)

Bridal - What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong) - would not honestly have been my first choice (or second or third or...) but one of my husbands very favorite songs, so that was actually the only song selection that was a surprise for him

Sand ceremony (as opposed to a unity candle) - Songbird (Fleetwood Mac)

Recessional - The Promise Song (When in Rome) - our song!

First Dance - The Book of Love (Peter Gabriel)

Parent Dance (we got it all over in one dance) - God Only Knows (Beach Boys)...I lobbied for ages when we were going to do two different dances for the hub to dance with his Mom to 'Woman' by John lennon which I think is a fabulous mother-son dance but he didnt think she'd like it.  i loved it.  seriously.  and i was going to do 'tangled up puppet' by harry chapin

Last Dance - Time's a Wastin!   Wink
