a friend of ours is a very accomplished pianist, and he played Bach’s ‘where sheep may safely graze’ for us.
It was great, because he could adjust tempo and volume to match what was happening.. rather than having someone poised on the play button and her indoors having to march in time to the music 🙂

How about a nice ballad?
Steel Panther – If You Really Really Loved Me*
*Lyrics very possibly NSFW if you look them up!
Otherwise, I think it would be awesome to see the Bride walk down the aisle to the Benny Hill theme tune. Perhaps she could run round the guests several times being chased by bridesmaid as well?Posted 4 years agoMrs ToastMember
I walked down the aisle to an orchestral rendition of Aerith’s Theme from Final Fantasy VII:
I did want the victory fanfare for the signing of the register:
But we have the Flower Duet instead. 😛Posted 4 years agotinman66Subscriber
The now Mrs Tinman walked down the aisle to the instrumental intro to ‘All You Need is Love’ by the Beatles. We walked back out to Van Morrison, Brown Eyed Girl.
I had a few great suggestions for the song to walk back out to. All of which were over-ruled.
Highway to Hell – AC/DC and Walk This Way – Aerosmith were two options but my absolute favourite would have been Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust. The (wo)man from Del Monte said no.
Edit – Should have added, The Imperial March from Star Wars was also banned at an early stage.Posted 4 years agoMrs ToastMember
Was it a Final Fantasy themed wedding?
Nah, we just had the one song. It was very tasteful!
Mr Toast said that I could have Aerith’s Theme if he could name the tables after famous dogs! 😛
Picking a first dance song was a nightmare, as neither of us have any discernible dancing ability. I quite fancied Richard Cheese’s version of War Ensemble, Mr Toast suggested Closer by NIN. In the end we dad-danced to Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”! 😆Posted 4 years ago
OH has demanded I ask the STW Hive Mind for suggestions for songs to play during a civil wedding ceremony. We were thinking either through PA or played by someone on an acoustic guitar.
So far my suggestions for when the OH walks down the isle are ‘Imperial March’ from Star Wars and ‘The Final Countdown’ by Europe. Both of which have been dismissed out of hand!
NB She seems quite keen on Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits.Posted 4 years agonickjbSubscriber
The wife walked in to this. I slightly edited out the middle bit for timing. I think the start is great and we had a few people in tears.
We then had a load of other pop songs on piano including Linkin Park and Pink Floyd. Sounded really nice to people who didn’t know the tune and was a bit more interesting for those that did. Would have like to get a friend to play them live but that was a bit tricky to arrange.Posted 4 years agojamj1974Subscriber
Instrumental of Still Life by Suede when walking out
Continuing the ‘indie’ note how about ‘You On My Mind In My Sleep’ by Richard Ashcroft, ‘Lucky Man’ by The Verve, ‘Shadow Of A Saint’ by Ian Brown, ‘The Only One I Know’ – Warm Sounds EP Version by The Charlatans…
Older songs that might work ‘She’s A Rainbow’ The Rolling Stones, ‘You’re All I Need To Get By’, Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell…Posted 4 years ago
