    Back when I was in high school, in brass choir (an all brass ensemble) we played a song. I think it was called Trumpet Voluntary or something like that (it's been about 8 years, so I don't remember for sure). I know I've heard it at weddings before. It's really cool if you can get a small brass ensemble to play it. at the very least a soloist. I know I heard a trombone soloist play it once and it was great.

  • Do the two of you have "a song" together? Something that was playing during an important moment together, i.e first kiss, etc? I would use that, totally. If noone else gets it at the ceremony it can be a private thing between the two of you when you walk down the aisle and make your wedding that much more special and romantic!

    I walked down the aisle to Trumpet Voluntary by Jeremiah Clarke. It was a duet between organ and trumpet. It was absolutely beautiful. This is the same song Princess Diana came down the aisle to back in the day, and I always wanted to have it in my wedding too.

    Everything, by Lifehouse. Its a beautiful, slow song with very touching lyrics...there wasn't a dry eye in the building. People came up to us afterwards and told us that they've been to 20 weddings before and never shed a tear, and they wept during our entire ceremony.

    I did it for my wedding march...here is a copy of the timing I did. You can adjust it as needed.

    ‘Everything’ by Lifehouse

    Intro(0secs-21secs) 21 seconds total (first bridesmaid)

    (22secs-1min12secs) 50 seconds total (second bridesmaid)

    Find me here, speak to me

    I want to feel you, I need to hear you

    You are the light that's leading me

    To the place where I find peace again.

    (1min13secs-1min55secs) 42 seconds total (third bridesmaid)

    You are the strength, that keeps me walking.

    You are the hope, that keeps me trusting.

    You are the light to my soul.

    You are my purpose...you're everything.

    (1min56secs-2min30secs) 34 seconds total (fourth bridesmaid)

    How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

    Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

    (2min31secs-3min12secs) 41 seconds total (fifth bridesmaid)

    You calm the storms, and you give me rest.

    You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.

    You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.

    Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?

    (3min13secs-3min55secs) 42 seconds total (maid of honor)

    How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

    Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

    And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

    Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

    (3min56secs-4min29secs) 33 seconds total (meee)

    Cause you're all I want, you're all I need

    You're everything, everything

    You're all I want, you’re all I need

    You're everything, everything.

    You're all I want, you're all I need.

    You're everything, everything

    You're all I want, you're all I need,

    You're everything, everything.

    (4min30secs-5mins51secs) 81 seconds total (at the alter)

    And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

    Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

    And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

    And how can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?

    Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?

    (FADE OUT)

    (5mins52secs-6mins7secs) 15 seconds total

    Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
