(I) Do // Strutting back up the Aisle

Since the Vicar gave me a rather disapproving look for suggesting a Beatles track as our ceremony exit song, (apparently it might be a bit too current) I seem to have made it my mission to find music that may antagonise him further. I would like to add that this has been rather unintentional… I just don’t think we’re ever going to have the same taste in music.

I think we’ve almost decided on our ceremony music; I would love to be able to sing something “current” in the place of one of the hymns, but I think we may well be told to find another venue if I were to suggest one of the many musical theatre songs that I have stored in my head. Although Bring Him Home from Les Miserables would be amazing… Or even A heart full of love. Ooh I can picture a duet between the men and women in the congregation now! Perhaps we could get an ex to sing Eponine’s part?

Anyway, before I turn our wedding into the musical extravaganza of my dreams… here are our options for exit music. Opinions (or ideas) would be most appreciated!

Changes by Faul & Wad Ad vs Pnau.

I am so obsessed with this track at the moment and can really see Nick and I dancing back up the aisle to this, with the rest of the congregation dancing and clapping along too… It’s so much fun, and that’s what I want our wedding to be.

When I’m 64 by The Beatles.

This is The Beatles track I suggested. I love this song and it would be so appropriate, plus great fun to bounce back up the aisle to.

So, which do you think? Perhaps we could do a mash-up…

What was your ceremony exit music?

    I think you’ve got a real challenge finding something your vicar will approve of! We got married at the Royal Pavillion in Brighton…our exit song was the ‘You and Me’ song by the Wannadies…I think the whole room exploded with happiness…it was a real feel good song…but I totally love ‘When I’m 64’…we had some Beatles when everyone was sitting down…’And I love her’…oh and some Beach Boys ‘God only knows’…ah so much fun! Good luck x

    We didn’t walk back up the aisle as such (we exited through a side door – not as odd as it sounds, honest!) but when we left “Big Me” but Foo Fighters played. We chose it for the line “It’s you I fell into” really.

    Thank you so much for linking up Hannah!!

    It took us ages to choose our exit songs, we were going to have Mr Blue Sky but as it was Bonfire Night it didn’t seem very apt! We had went full on cheese with Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered instead but to the room was so small and it didn’t take people long to exit that it went missed! It’s better to have a cracking exit song when you have an aisle to walk back up like to you will! 🙂

    It makes me so cross that those antiquated approaches still exist in religion-at the risk of sounding rude-why does it matter to them what song you play?! As long as it isnt anything rude etc.xx

    We had quite traditional songs that worked in the medivial church and kept both our vicars happy (honestly we had 2 of them!) – Papa Owl happened to know a trumpeter to give it some welly! However, our bridesmaid sang Nora Jones and Eva Casidy songs while we were signing the registers.
