What’s Your Walk Down the Aisle Song?

Certain wedding songs take careful planning – your first dance, dances with parents – but why is it that reception songs seem to get all the thoughtfulness?

Yesterday CNN posted a story about wedding march songs that got us thinking about all the alternatives to “Here Comes the Bride.” And the options are limitless, really! Couples interviewed in their story mentioned everything from a Phantom of the Opera tune to “La Mer”  by Nine Inch Nails.




I remember a gorgeous outdoor ceremony where the bride came down the aisle to the Hawaiian-y rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. It was whimsical, upbeat and perfectly set the tone of the day.

So tell us, have you given much thought to your walk down the aisle song?
