Finally it's my turn to walk down the aisle. It's going to be a winter wedding (the end of November). Any suggestions on wedding tunes to play in church and the afterparty? I'm considering this tune in church, it's a lovely wedding march, but I'm open to other suggestions as well.

That music is PERFECT!
Only you know your personality, your special bond with your partner, but a couple months ago I had to start looking at Wedding music, also - so I'll share some thoughts.
If I could dance down the aisle (it truly is the Bride's Day!), I might pick "Take On Me" (A-ha).
With my personality, I might choose "Nothing Else Matters" (Metallica).
The quirky side of me wants a twist on tradition, like a "Dubstep Wedding March"!
Now, if I was MUCH younger I might strut down the aisle to "Legs" (ZZ Top), but that's because my Soulmate loves ZZ Top!
And, if nothing else, maybe a popular tune like "A Thousand Years" (Christina Perri).
Now that I've had a chance to listen to more of Dalakopa's wonderful music I need to make note of them in my "Anyone Interested in a Scandinavian Fiddle Genre?" thread! Thank you for sharing your music!
Have a wonderful Wedding!
Just saw this thread. Congratulations, HP!
Now, a few thoughts.
Jeremiah Clarke's Prince of Denmark March is pretty commonly heard at wedding ceremonies, and is well suited to playing solo.
The Danish String Quartet's collection of Scandinavian folk song arrangements includes a set of three pieces called the "Sønderho bridal trilogy." Here are the first two.

A few years ago, I played viola at the wedding of two of my close friends. I played unaccompanied, and they gave me carte blanche to pick the music with the only requirement being that I should not play Pachelbel, Clarke, Mendelssohn, or Wagner, i.e. the really commonly played stuff. I ended up writing a solo viola arrangement of themes from Grieg's piano piece "Wedding Day at Troldhaugen." I don't have it on hand immediately (I'd have to pull it off an old hard drive) and it had a ton of double and triple stops. But here's the piano piece, in case you get ideas from it.
