    I went to a wedding where "Yesterday" was performed at the reception afterwards. Ouch. We've had the thread with good wedding music. How about some suggestions for inappropriate wedding music. e.g. Love on the rocks, Solitaire, etc. You get the idea...

    One of our bandsmen loved the hymn tune Repton so chose that hymn for his Wedding only to realise that the words are "Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, Forgive our foolish ways.

    At another Wedding we formed a brass quintet for one of the band who had been going out with his wife to be for a very long time so our Bandmaster arranged the Salvation Army song/tune, "I'll not turn back".

    There is a story - possibly apocryphal - about a couple who requested the music from 'Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves' to walk back up the aisle to after the ceremony. Unfortunately, either the organist genuinely didn't know the piece existed or he was really spiteful, because they took their first walk as man and wife to the tune of 'Robin Hood, Robin Hood, Riding Through the Glen'

    I was once asked to arrange a 5 minute through composed selection for a wedding containing; Eternal Flame (Cheesy, but, alright I'll let that one go), Angels (fair enough), Mad about the boy (again, fair enough).............. and the theme to Beauty and the Beast :confused: :confused: :confused:
    Needless to say the comissionee was from the bride's side of the family. Certain people on here will know the occasion in question! :p

    We got a bunch of us that do weddings every now and again for friends, most of what we play is pretty appropriate, plenty of love songs etc. but....

    Played Happy Day while the Bride and groom were signing the register a few weeks ago. took a while for the congregation to realise what was going on but I think we just about got away with it (it was the bride's request).

    My personal favourite is the look on the guests faces when we pipe up with the medal ceremony march from the end of star wars iv. Played it for my sister to walk down the aisle 2 years ago my mother has still not forgiven me.
