    Default Skye Boat Song being piped for processional?

    Hey all,

    Do we think it's okay to have this as an entrance song as I walk down the aisle? Seems to be conflicting online as some use it for funerals too which obviously is not what I'm after lol.

    I love it as a piece of music but I'd like to see what people think!

    It has increased in popularity since being used as the theme tune The Outlander.
    I was even asked to play it as a First Dance last year!

    Thanks for the reply Lee. I think it's a very romantic piece, and forgetting the lyrics (which a lot of people aren't sure of-the originals at least) I think it's great as a processional

    I love this piece and when played on the pipes it really is a perfect song to walk down the aisle to. I used to love playing it on the pipes as it was such a tranquil piece to play. I say go for it

    Ahh thanks whiskylass! Yea I definitely think I'm going to go for it. And it's funny with it being used for Outlander seeing as my fiancÚ is Scottish and I'm English lol =p

    At the end of the day the music for walking down the aisle is so personal it should be exactly what you want it to be, not what others do, or don't, expect it to be - if you love the song go for it.

    I've DJ'd hundreds of weddings and thought dealing with my own wedding music would be easy but it's not so I'm trying to simplify my approach as much as possible - that means not listening to a thing anyone except my fiancÚ or I think

    We've piped the Skye Boat Song for weddings for years and it never loses it's appeal. Do what feels right for you :-)
