My Wedding Songs... too weird??
My fiance and I are big classic rock fans. We also want our songs to have lyrics (and we are doing away with "Here Comes the Bride - whatever the real name of it is...). So, some of our choices are:
Thank you - Led Zeppelin
You Take My Breath Away - Queen (minus the first 45 seconds or so)
Something in the Way She Moves - The Beatles
Sunshine - Nazareth
I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing - Aerosmith (a newer song but they're my favorite!)
I Believe in a Thing Called Love - The Darkness (they are sooo Queen-like - the best band that has came out in the last decade - since GNR)
Sweet Child O' Mine - GNR (our song)
The Queen song (I think) we will play as our wedding party walks in, and the Nazareth song when I come in. I am also having a slideshow in the wedding while we light the unity candle with music playing then as well. Then we are going to release each pew one by one after we are married so that we get to speak to everyone - we will play "So Happy Together" - The Turtles and GNR while we do this. We aren't having a dance at the reception but will probably play music there as well...
My question is - is this going to be too informal for our wedding that is in all other respects extremely elegant. The music is "us" and I really don't want to let it go...
Also, are there any other Classic Rock love songs (I will settle for hair bands...) that you guys can think of that would be appropriate for the ceremony? Any suggestions??[/b]
