Do you know any good, non-traditional music to play at a wedding?
Indeed I do... at my wedding I strutted down the aisle to the Imperial March (Darth Vadar's theme song from Star Wars). But, I guess from the picture you added, you already knew this?
Also, my bride Andrea used the Indiana Jones title song.
We found this to be much more entertaining than using more traditional (slow, romantic) wedding music.
My advice: use something fun!
"Marry Me" by Train or possibly "Come Away With Me" or "The Nearness of You" by Norah Jones. A friend of mine walked down the aisle to the Elvis tune "Love Me Tender." Goosebump moment!
"Truly, Madly, Deeply" by Savage Garden (lyrics start: 'I wanna stand with you on a mountain...')
...we used it for the bride & groom dance but I think it would work just as well or better for walking down the aisle.
I am also looking for suggestions. We want to keep things instrumental, but can't afford some sort of live musician to play popular songs.

I want to write a hub around this and was wondering if anyone else had opinions? I have a few favourites in mind but would like to discover more! Could be violinists/fiddle players from any genre (besides classical!) - jazz, folk, bluegrass etc. Cheers!

We have heard about the miracle where Jesus turned water to wine. People seem not to understand the type of wine that was made. Some said it was alcohol while some claim it was non-alcohol like fruit wine. I think a knowledge of the wine invoke at that time can give us an idea. Those that oppose...
