Music For the Entrance of the Bride – What’s Yours?

By admin on October 27th, 2006 4 comments

Entranceofthebride We’ve had something of a breakthrough today regarding the wedding music –  and specifically the music for the entrance of the bride. (Me!) Because we both love our music, and because we both have a tendency to make things that little bit more complicated than they really need to be, we decided not to go with the traditional "Here Comes the Bride". Or rather, I decided. Terry was all for it (or all for the electric guitar version we found by Queen, anyway), but I wanted to find something a little bit more meaningful.

Well, it’s taken a long, long time, but I think we’ve finally found it. This morning we took delivery of a CD Terry had managed to track down on Amazon. On it is an orchestral version of Queen’s Teo Torriatte (‘Let Us Cling Together’), which is a song I’ve loved since I was a kid. I still love it, and, luckily, so does Terry. So we think we’ve found our entrance music – and probably our exit music too. Yay!

Of course, the whole process was made slightly more complicated for us because we’re having a civil ceremony, which means that there must be no reference to religion whatsoever – not even in the lyrics of the songs we use. That ruled out Jeff Buckley singing Hallelujah, which I love, and it ruled out a whole bunch of other songs which aren’t necessarily religious, but which still use words like "heaven" or "angel". (Although, on the plus side, it did mean that no one could suggest Robbie Williams!)

Just to complicate matters, neither of us is very interested in classical music, and didn’t have a clue about most of the suggestions given on wedding websites. If you’re still looking for music to walk in or out to, though, I recommend The Wedding Music Company’s website which allows you to listen online to snippets of the most popular wedding songs, and also has a section on wedding music tips.

  • my friend is playing (Everything I do)I do it for you by Bryan Adams on the piano for me! 5 days!

  • Ah, I would have loved to have a real live musician play my entrance music, how lovely! And five days – you must be so excited 🙂

    I’m going to be piped down the aisle by a piper in full Highland regalia, which I just think will be so lovely and special.

    This is my moment
    This is my perfect moment with you
    This is what God meant
    This is my perfect moment with you
    I wish I could freeze this space in time
    The way that I feel for you inside
    This is my moment
    This is my perfect moment with you

    Tell me you love me when you leave
    You’re more than a shadow, that’s what I believe
    You take me to places I never thought I’d see
    Minute by minute you’re the world to me

    I wish I could frame the look in your eyes
    The way that I feel for you inside
    This is my moment
    This is my perfect moment with you

    And if tomorrow brings a lonely day
    Here and now I know I haven’t lived in vain
    I’ll cry my tears in the rain
    And if love never comes again
    I can always say I’ve been
    To paradise skies in your eyes, eyes, eyes

    Tell me you love me the moment you leave
    You’re more than a shadow, I’ve got to believe
    I wish I could keep you all of my life
    The way that I feel for you inside

    This is my moment
    This is my perfect moment with you
    This is my moment
    This is my perfect moment with you
    With you
