You know you can upgrade your "Walking down the aisle song", right?
More and more Brides are skipping the traditional, "Here comes the Bride" song, and choosing a song that they truly enjoy and love. Choosing this particular song for you to walk down the aisle, can be tricky. You want to be original, you want to keep the moment beautiful and romantic, but most important, you want it to be meaningful. This song in particular could be one that you both pick because it means something for you both, or, it could be a surprise song with beautiful lyrics that you are dedicating to him as you walk down the aisle.
At a destination wedding I had here in my island, Puerto Rico, one Bride danced down the beach aisle to Maroon 5's "Moves like Jagger". To this day, that is by far one of the most memorable, fun and super cool Bride's entrance I have ever experienced. No one expected it, so you can imagine everyone reaction... yeap, they started jumping, dancing and singing as she walked. What a cheerful moment that was!
If you dream on having live musicians, let them know in advanced which song you want them to play for you. They can, of course, rehearse in advanced any song of your choice, from a classical to one on the top 20 charts. Just make sure they know at least two weeks prior so they can guarantee they will play the song for you.
If you want out of the traditional songs, go ahead, show some unique personality in your ceremony with an unexpected soundtrack. Believe me when I say, I have even seen a Bride walk down the aisle to Guns n' Roses' "Sweet Child O Mine" played by Violinists... it was AMAZINGGG!!!
