What was your processional song? The bridal party came in to the Up movie theme song, because we both love the sweet romance in the Pixar film and balloons were a running theme in our wedding (the bridesmaids even carried heart balloons instead of bouquets). I walked down the aisle to "Someone Like You" by Van Morrison, a song I've had a thing for since hearing it in Bridget Jones's Diary.
What was your recessional song? We came back down the aisle as husband and wife to "All You Need Is Love" by The Beatles. Some of our earliest and most memorable dates involved listening to The Beatles, so we actually had a lot of their songs in our wedding. Our grand entrance song was "8 Days a Week" and our exit song was supposed to be "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" but there was a mix-up and it ended up being a different Beatles song (I actually can't remember what it was).
What was your first dance song? Our first dance song was "Taking You With Me" by Mindy Smith and Daniel Tashian from the Our Idiot Brother soundtrack. It was kind of a random song, but we loved the sweet lyrics and could relate to them. Plus it was a peppy song that we could agree on — and we have very different taste in music!
