I am walking down the aisle with my Mum as my father passed 5years ago. To include him on the day i am going to have his photo on my bouquet and would like to walk down the aisle to one of his favourite songs. Now my dad is a bit of a rocker so AC/DC doesn't seem appropriate :) But he did love the song "Pretty Woman". I love the thought of walking down the aisle with this song playing, i think it suits our theme very well as we are not planning a traditional ceremony and have selected newer, fun songs for the day.
My question is. How can i mention to all of our guests that this is a special song, for my dad. I was thinking about writing something in the order of service or asking the celebrant to say something. I just don't know how to put it.
Not many people will realise the connection and i don't want to turn heads, with this "interesting" song choice as some people may think its odd. I want people to realise that it is special, I'm not trying to justify my choice to our guests as i know its my day, my choices, but i feel i want something mentioned to acknowledge the fact that he is not here to see me get married but that i am thinking about him and using his memory to be apart of our day.
Any thoughts would be amazing!!
