    By my wedding, I had the band play “Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh…” a song that always resonated with me.

    Don’t laugh. I was at a wedding years ago where the musician played beautifully the tune of the Teshuva song, one Middos Machine. It was truly stunning.

    Are you looking for Lev Tahor, Abie Rottenberg type, or chassidish type music?

    If the former, I would recommend Rachem from Lev Tahor for Mi Adir and Haven Yakir Li or Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh for Mi Van Siach. If the latter, my personal favorites are Yedid Nefesh, I think from Avraham Fried (starts YEdid NEfesh YEDID NEfesh – if you can figure out what I’m talking about) for Mi Adir, and the classic Rachem B’chasdecha (the one that goes into the fast Yiboneh yiboneh yiboneh hamikdash…) for Mi Van Siach.

    Yeah. That’s also a very nice tune. Actually a lot of his pieces are really beautiful.

    I am very proud of the fact that I have personally convinced 3 people to walk down to the Ahavas Yisroel song from the Marvelous Middos Machine.

    I’ve sang a lot of different tunes at chupos. Some were my idea, others were requested by the chassan/kallah. Here are some of the things I’ve sang Mi Adir and Mi Bon Siach to:

    Odcha Hashem Elokai (old tune, not sure from where)

    Boei B’Shalom (by Avraham Fried, I believe on the All Star Cast album)

    Od Yeshvu (MBD, The Double Album)

    Mi Bon Siach (Lev V’nefesh 2)

    Mi Adir (Aish)

    Machnisei Rachamim

    Here are some nice tunes I’ve heard for people walking down to the chuppah (that aren’t commonly used):

    Hinei Anochi (Tzlil V’zemer 5)

    Al Taster (Shmelke’s Niggunim, then an album called Mimamakim, then Abish Brodt on Machnisei Dimah)

    I’ve also heard songs that people wrote themselves and then walked down to them.

    Shalsheles Jr. 2’s Hayma for Meebun Siach! Try it! It literally fits like a glove!!!

    Interesting ones:

    My cousin Rachel walked down to Mama Rochel at her wedding– it was GORGEOUS!

    The funniest (and most awkward) one I ever saw was at my neighbor’s wedding, her twelve-year-old niece walked down to Hey Dum Diddly Dum. No joke.

    My grandparents always walk down to Ilan Ilan (the old one, not the Shwekey one). I think it fits well.

    It’s fairly common. I’ve never seen it for a twelve-year-old though. For young children however, like four or five year olds, sometimes the family wants a cute tune for them to walk down the aisle to (and they’ll drop rose petals out of a basket as their walking or something). It’s a matter of personal taste.

    really, you walk down to a song that speaks to you, or that really makes you feel kadosh and spiritual, and helps enhance the importance of the moment, according to you. personally, some songs i would choose would be:

    meheira- shwekey

    bo’ee beshalom- shwekey (libi b’mizrach)

    birkas habayis- (dunno original, but its on last track of baruch levine’s chassan torah. its the middle song)

    ma ashiv- baruch levine (hashkifa)

    then there is one song that i don’t quite remember the name, but its on shloime dachs’ dance all night as one of the chuppa songs (no music, just sax)

    these are just some, among others i would choose. these are the ones that stand out most to me.

    According to AKA Pella, You Raise Me Up goes with Mi Van Siach.

    Um…. Od Yishama?

    I’ve never heard anything else.

    #873108

    There are several intros for the band to warm up to, which then reach a climax (with crazy drumrolls and miscellaneous musical uproar) where the chosson and kallah run in and the band strikes up the traditional Od Yishama. Unfortunately none of them have official names, so when you ask bands what intros they can play they say that they can play “The Intro” or The American Wedding Intro” or “The Typical Wedding Intro Based On A Hit By Elvis” or “The Presidents’ Intro” and last but not least ” The Intro For Greatly Confused Popes”, all of which are almost, if not entirely, identical.You’re best off just asking the band to audition or give you a several recordings and choose whatever one you like. Most bands heavily orchestrate their intros so there will only be one or two (quite good) options.

    They all have names, you just have to know them.

    As for Esther’s question, it depends on the band. “Right Now” by Van Halen with the second half of it using horns is one of my favorites (the intro to Journeys IV is based on it; the original is better). But it only sounds good if the band has rehearsed it well. Evanal for example does a really good job at it, but I have heard others make shvacheh mayses out of it. So whatever you choose, it is very important to ask the band if they’ve played or rehearsed it before, and also ask for Youtube videos or recordings, and consider choosing from something they are already really good at.

    Yitay: The coolest intro I’ve ever seen a Chassan and Kallah come out to was the intro to “Eye of the Tiger”.

    Eye of the Tiger is great too, it’s classic. Must be done right though (even though it sounds so simple).

    At my wedding, I walked in to For Whom the Bell Tolls, by Metallica.

    A friend of mine (whose wife posts here) walked in to the theme from the old Transformers cartoons.
