Mine is weird, but for the ceremony, this is what I am doing, I would consider it pretty modern, lol. So maybe this will help give ideas
Wedding Party/Groom is walking to "Under Pressure" from Queen/David Bowie.
I am walking to "Kashmir" from Led Zeppelin
We are leaving to "You're my best friend" from Queen.
Good luck!Source(s): Gettin' Hitched 6-27-08

I used to sing at weddings, and I often sang Enya songs as processionals because they create an etherial feeling as the bride walks down the aisle in her white dress. I've also sung "The Prayer" at a number of weddings - it's a duet and a good metaphor for marriage, I think. I'm planning to play "Book of Love" by Peter Gabriel at my wedding, which I'll lend to you for your big day if you want! :P

Think of songs you like or ones that have meaning to you, even if they're not "classical" music. We didn't use any of the "traditional" songs and our guests all loved that we really made the day our own. We used:
orchestral/symphony versions of: "another brick in the wall," "bohemian rhapsody," "bittersweet symphony," "beautiful day," "every breath you take," "everybody hurts," "imagine," "let it be," "stairway to heaven," "space oddity," "on bended knee," "lucy in the sky with diamonds"
seating of mothers: "unchained melody" (by Righteous Brothers, instrumental)
bridal party: "please please please let me get what i want" (by Dream Academy, from the museum scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off)
bride entrance: "the final countdown" (by Europe, orchestral)
recessional: "the olympic spirit" (by John Williams)
