Here are just a few of our favorite comments, that truly show the brilliance in choosing the music that is exactly right, for you…

“Our recessional is Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder… one of my favorites.” – Hapah

“We’re having a steel drum band play, and the bridesmaids are walking down the aisle to Girl from Ipanema!  I think it will be such a fun way to get everyone in a celebratory mood.” – Ida2010

“I am going to walk down the aisle to “I’m a Believer” by the Monkees!” – Christina

“My dad and I chose “It’s a Wonderful World” for our father-daughter dance song. However, things did not go exactly as planned! A huge storm came through during our cocktail hour and left us without power for the next three hours at our outdoor reception. My dad and I ended up standing on the lawn, surrounded by friends and family, who started singing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” while my dad and I twirled around in the grass. Appropriate song? Well, probably not, but still one of my favorite wedding day memories- I’ll never forget it!” – Emily

“My father passed away almost 10 years ago, so I’ll be dancing with my brother, but we’re dancing to Patty Griffin’s “Heavenly Day” as a nod to my late father. It is a beautiful song!” – Chandra

“I can’t wait to hear a friend of mine sing a Swedish song called Säg det igen (Say it again) by Lisa Nilsson about the feeling the very first “I love you” evokes. It is one of the most emotional songs I have ever heard. I cry every time I hear it now — wonder how much I’ll bawl at my wedding!” – Anja

“Before the ceremony, we’re going to have string quartet of Guns N Roses songs playing. And I’m going to walk down the aisle to a string quartet of I can’t help falling in love with you.” – Lara

“My fiance and I met through music and share a deep appreciation for many genres of music. We had some AWESOME engagement photos taken in an old school record store and we are both very excited to make our musical selections for our wedding as unique as our musical tastes are!! As of right now… (we’ve already changed our first dance song THREE TIMES and have finally settled on The Watson Twins cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven”) I will be walking down the aisle to a string version of Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah. I’m wicked excited to make the final selections for all our other ceremony music.” Emil

“I’m walking down the aisle to “Moon River” played by a classical guitar musician. The line “two drifters, off to see the world, there’s such a lot of world to see..” is so me and my fiance and the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s was one of my favorites as a kid.” – Cozette

“I grew up with my dad always involved in barbershop singing, i would love for our dance to be to one of those songs…” – Jen
