Live Poll: Wedding March

Historically, June has always been the most popular month for weddings. "The Bridal Chorus" by Wagner (often known as "Here Comes The Bride"), is the traditional choice for the procession of the bride.

Which of these alternative pieces of music would you prefer to accompany the bride as she walks down the aisle?

Number 6 should be Pachelbel instead of Pacabell.

@Peter,

I'm at 35 choices.

I replaced

30 You and Me

with

30 Can't Help Falling in Love

Can't Help Falling in Love is perfect a Los Vegas wedding.

I'm sorry. I'm just a little exhausted by Covid at the moment, so maybe my choices and actions might be a little incoherent. I suffer from it since tuesday and it didn't get better since then. I hope it reaches its peak fast and gets better then.

Dan,

I really like this poll.

@Jessica​ ,

Thank you for catching the misspelling of aisle. I've correct the spelling in both the list and in the first post of this thread.

By the way, a very silly television commercial was my original inspiration for this poll suggestion:

Hi Dan. I think this looks great. I love how you start the intro by mentioning the month of June: it offers such timely relevance for anyone looking at this poll. The only suggestions that I could come up with involve really little things that aren't too important:

1) I'm wondering if all of the first four options being from Star Wars might discourage non-Star Wars fans from continuing down the list. It makes sense to have them grouped together but perhaps start the list with one or two pieces that aren't Star Wars themed? I don't feel strongly about it: 'just something I wondered.

2) Strictly speaking, the comma after the parentheses should be joined by a comma at the beginning of the clause. I might also remove the parentheses and do something like this:

Wagner's "The Bridal Chorus," often known as "Here Comes The Bride", is the traditional choice for the procession of the bride.

Again, I don't think either are all that important. They're just the only two things that I noticed as possibilities. Everything looks wonderful. This is a lovely poll and gift.

Thank you for your feedback. The opening reads much better with your suggested edit.

I was wondering about whether to include 'Star Wars' themes at the beginning of the poll. I moved them down in the list as you suggested. I was rather surprised how well each of the 'Star Wars' themes work as processionals and that they were suggested by sources I mention above. Originally, I only thought of The Throne Room and End Title, which has the general feeling of Mendelssohn's Wedding March and Water Suite: No. 2 in D Major.

I'm really happy how well this poll came together and am delighted how well pieces of music work as bridal processionals. Maybe someone getting married in the future, may be inspired by the list.

Satire-mode on:

I wonder who wants to marry with the Imperial March. Must be a Stahlhelm-bride. ;)

Satire of.

Over the rainbow? Cheesy.

Can you feel the love tonight? Ok, but a little cheesy, too.

Pachelbel's Canon in D is one of the more serious tracks, I would eventually choose, too. Depending of how fast the procedure of the ceremony should happen. It's very slow and the procedure would take some time. Time to enjoy to bear the positive feelings.

In my case (still married), I would pick one of the classics. Even the "Here comes the bride" from Wagner is one of the more serious. At the end my fav really would be Mendelssohn's Wedding March.

Initially, I was surprised that the Imperial March (Darth Vader's Theme) so far is in first place, until I realized that the demographics of the people taking the poll tend to nerdy and young (at least based on which  polls are more popular). My personal favorite is Pachelbel's Canon in D Major followed by Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.

Yes, Dan, Bach is also very dignified all times I hear his music. So the procedure would be very  dignified, too. It's a pity that less and less people like the old masters, some were really outstanding genuisses. I'm really open for mostly all kinds of music. And there are surely new styles which I like, not only rock and rap. But the details of classic music are mostly always far beyond all the refrain-driven tracks.

I once met the editor-in-chief of a German music journal. And he was a classic lover far beyond myself. He stated that "... Bach is god, Mozart the biggest and Beethoven ..." ... in fact I lost what he said about Beethoven, it surely was positive, but what I never lost was the order he stated. And by hearing all three of them, I somehow understood what he wanted to tell me. But for me, Beethoven rules! His Fifths Symphony is the best I'd say I ever heard! And I mean not only the first movement - all of it!

I hope you are feeling better.

When I entered "Bach is god, Mozart the biggest and Beethoven" into Google one of the results I get is "Bach gave us God's word. Mozart gave us God's laughter. Beethoven gave us God's fire. God gave us Music."
