Music

How did Bride and grooms find they’re songs, we have 1 song for each other that we’ve had from first getting together but it’s a very very cheesy song so we’re not using it. Our theme is beauty and the beast so the aisle walk is “how can a moment last forever” the other songs arnt going to be with the theme. How did everybody find they’re other sons.

I'm walking down the aisle to instrumental version of one of my favourite songs and walking out to the vocal version. I'm stuck for 3 songs to play while we sign the register.

Have a look at every hit.com. When you input a date it gives you what was number 1 in the charts on that date. You could look what was nr 1 on the day of your engagement.

We had lone star amazed and then it went into goo goo dolls iris where everyone else got up and joined us. We just listened to a load of different songs on YouTube and decided on a few we liked xx

You could possibly have your song if you want. If you search for it by the piano guys you might find it sounds beautiful. That's what we've done for the song I walk down the aisle to, the original is not romantic at all but makes me cry by the piano guys. We've then just picked 3 songs we both like. Our first dance is the song we first danced to at my 30th 3 years ago xx

We went to a wedding and they had Beauty and the Beast played on violin for the aisle walk, was absolutely beautiful!

I chose most of our music... And I know this is probably no help, but I just knew. We'd been together 9 years before deciding to get married so I guess I'd probably been thinking about it subconsciously all those years.

I had my heart set on Ed sheeran tenerife Sea for walking down the aisle and then the week before the wedding I was on YouTube when an advert for Dan Shay popped up and I decided that I loved their song speechless as it's about their wives walking down the aisle and how seeing their wives made them feel, and then we had how do I live by leanne rimes as our first dance followed by Ed sheeran perfect and then we went for a 90s theme on the music as we were both born in the 90s

We didnt initially have a song for us when we met or since but we both love films and we chose a song from a favourite film for our first dance- it was carly simmons in the end- nobody does it better. I walked down the aisle to pachelbel which I fell in love with- we got married in a church with a beautiful organ and wanted to use it so went through lots of music like that. To start with we had completely no idea. We went through no end of songs on you tube and listened to artists we loved until we found something that clicked and we felt was relevant to us. It was a lot of fun. Xx

We have a song for our 1st dance which is from when we 1st met and he proposed to me ‘unoffically’ after 3 months by playing it to me
My aisle walk is ‘A Thousand Years’ as the words just mean so much

My Fiancé is picking her down the aisle but I pick first dance & then after that it's a combination but both agree during dinner etc it will be upbeat Christian/Gospel music (she's Methodist and I am Baptist.)

To walk down the aisle I had a song that talks about asking the daughter hand in marriage so it was a tribute to my dad and to my husband for signing the reg we had perfect by ed Sheeran ,then walking out we had I do I do I do by abba then help by the Beatles then divorce by Tammy wynette as a medley everybody was laughing x

It was easy for us. We chose a song we listened to together when we were 17/18. Rest of the songs were from vitamin string quartet's geek wedding and Ghibli albums.

My son gave me away, so I had Ellie Goulding - How long will I love You, then our first dance was what we danced to when we first met “My Girl” an amazing day.

To walk down the aisle I have meatloaf I'd do anything for love. My dad brought me up on meatloaf and I feel its fitting for him to give me away to it.

I walked down the isle to “I get to love you“ by Ruelle I felt it said everything about us.
We walked back up the isle to “ a good thing going” my husbands favourite song and so us too
Our first dance was to Thinking out loud... because my husband had always sung that song to me, so it was perfect 👌🏻 ... xx

We got married in June and had westlife beautiful in white walking down the aisle, female version of wherever you will go whilst signing register, and etta James at last walking out of the church. We then had dj Sammy heaven (slow version) for first dance going into the fast version getting everyone up, as this was my brothers favourite song who passed away. We also got married on his birthday so it meant alot x x

I walked up the aisle to the original wonder woman theme song, we signed the register whilst the cantina song from starwars played. Our hymn was I will follow you from the film sister act and we left the church to over the rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwoʻole. That was the first song we heard as a married couple so had that song too as our first dance. We made our entrance into the reception to the star wars theme. It was epic.

My friend is hopefully harping me down the aisle to Tale as Old as Time and I don’t think either of us want a first dance as neither of us can dance

We had a Star Wars theme (May the Fourth and all that) so I walked down to The Imperial March, we walked out to the film's theme tune whatever that's called. We signed the register to Queen, Another one bites the dust. We picked the in and out songs together for the theme. The signing song I picked and he knew nothing about it. He laughed, our guests laughed, it got the exact reaction it was supposed to get.

Good luck picking your songs and congratulations on your upcoming wedding

I walked down the aisle to The Ramones'(yes, they're a punk band, not a flipping baseball team!) version of Baby I Love You, our register songs were Marry Me, by Sparks and Softly to Me by Love. Then we walked back up the aisle to What is Love? by George Harrison.

We had the violin versions of canan in D for me walking down the aisle, the star wars theme tune and Robin Hood theme tune for signing the register then the hobbits theme tune to walk back up the aisle. Our first dance song was 'nobody loves you' by Reuben, it was totally different to what we were going to have. Like you 'our' song has been with us all the way through, but was played at too many weddings and is a bit cheesy.

I walked down the isle to Samba Pa Ti by Santana
We signed the register to Clair de Lune by Isao Tomita
We both walked back down the isle to Albatross by Fleetwood Mac (I realised I was in love with Nick when he played this to me on his guitar on my birthday six months after I first met him)
Our first dance was to
Lady Antebellum - Need You Now (We didn't live near each other and only met up occasionally so the words were very meaningful)

We have a Disney theme for ours. I’m walking down the isle to beauty and the beast, our first dance is you’ll be in my heart (Tarzan) and we have found a load of Disney instrumentals for like the register signing etc and just a whole collection of our fav Disney songs for during the meal. We’ll probably enter our reception to ‘be our guest’

We each wrote a list in secret, then went through them together. There was one song that was on both... Earth Angel (BTTF is one of our fave films). So that was our first dance. Then the other songs (entrance, register signing etc) we picked together from the two lists.
