    OK, bit of a brainstorm and ideas session........

    I'm getting married at the beginning of October, and I've asked our band to play. I'm sorted for all music, with the only exception being the main music for my partner walking down the aisle.

    I originally thought of the fanfare from "La Reine de Saba", but are not able to get it. Plus it may kill off our cornets, or at least mean they need a lie down for the rest of the service.......


    Any other suggestions for music of this ilk? I've looked at Fest Musik der Stadt Wein last night, but it's not quite right. I really like the finale fanfare march from Star Wars, but I fear that may precipitate the fastest divorce in history.

    Hey ho.

    Over to you........

    Played at a wedding once where the conductor chose 'Love on the Rocks'. I promise that is true. I don't know what he was thinking.

    I've played at a wedding where the bride walked down to 'Procession to the Minster'. The band played the whole piece and it was arranged/timed so that the bride walked in at a certain point towards the end - the effect was brilliant.

    Also, I remember one I did that I think may have been by Rimsky-Korsakov - not very helpful I know, so I'll rack my brains and add another reply if I can think of it.
