"Here Comes The Bride"? Keep or Cancel?

"Here Comes The Bride" (aka Wagner's Bridal Chorus) is the traditional old-school processional song. Do you still love this dramatic bridal march? Or are you ready to say goodbye to this old organ song in favor of more contemporary and personal musical selections?

Where do you stand on "Here Comes The Bride"? Keep or cancel?

    There is a version by Haley Reinhart that I'm in love with. It's not instrumental, but it's so pretty!

    Keep! and wow this one surprised me! Everyone else is walking in to something else but I cant wait for it to change to play for me and my dads walk down the aisle. I'm an old soul I guess! Haha

    Cancel - sort of! My FH thinks I'm walking down the aisle to it but I'm surprising him and walking down to his father playing guitar (if possible) and if not an instrumental from a movie we both loved and watched when we first started dating!

    Cancel. Most brides now are choosing songs to walk down the aisle oppose to taking on the traditional song.

    Cancel. I'm not doing a walk down the isle due to the type of ceremony I'm having, but if I was I'd do a different song.

    Cancel for sure. We want music that has more meaning to us and I've had my song picked out since the first time I heard it lol.

    Cancel. I'm not sure what we are going to play, but I'm not a fan of this particular song. Canon in D, Thousand Years instrumental, and a few other are on the short list. Regardless of what it is, it'll be arranged for rough the right timing to fade out. The musician in me cannot stand a harsh cut off mid-musical thought! LOL

    Keeping but with a twist. We want to do the imperial march from Star Wars while the bridesmaids walk down the aisle and have the music merge into Here Comes the Bride when it's my turn.

    I dislike how formal that song sounds. I went with Sweet Creature from Harry Styles.

    Cancel, we haven't decided what song we're using but we're far from traditional so I'd rather walk down the aisle to a song that has more meaning to us

    Cancel - but we are doing Canon in D as well! I think that is pretty common. When FH and I were listening to it to see if that is what we wanted, we both got teary eyed so I think it is meant to be.
