My fiancee and I are getting married in a hilltop chapel with no power so we want a friend to sing an acapella song as the wedding march...

Can anyone think of a good one? (Have already considered Ave Maria)

Love Is The Sweetest Thing
Ray Noble
"Say It With Music"

Love is the sweetest thing
What else on earth could ever bring
Such happiness to ev'rything
As Love's old story.

Love is the strangest thing
No song of birds upon the wing
Shall in our hearts more sweetly sing
Than Love's old story.

Whatever heart may desire
Whatever fate may send
This is the tale that never will tire.
This is the song without end.

Love is the greatest thing
The oldest yet, the latest thing
I only hope that fate may bring
Love's story to you.

3 ideas:

Use the Dutch hymn "We gather together," changing some words to reflect that this is a wedding.

Use "Let all things now living," which uses the joyful tune "Ash Grove," and do the same.

'Be thou my vision.' Skip verse 3.

Perhaps "Il Ne L'Aura Pas" as performed by the City Waites: though as this is supposedly commenting on the bride's state, perhaps it's not quite appropriate.

Kate Wolf's Give Yourself to Love

but perhaps you could have instruments...
just no amplification...perhaps ones
with some volume...such as bagpipes,
nyckelharp, or some resonator type

this would carry better than a voice..
will you plan to have multiple singers?

a pretty waltz is Give Me Your Hand
(i do not know of lyrics for this--i am thinking instrumental here)
or as mentioned above, Mairi's Wedding

Here she comes
Walkin' up the aisle
She got the foxiest looks that
Make everybody smile

Hey hey she's my honey

Beats my other choice which was "Me and You and a Dog Named Boo"

Congratulations and Mazel Tov!

For the record, I was once musical director ·+· playing Amiens who gets to sing most of the songs in a 1970 open-air As You Like It in Cambridge. The theme was of a sort of hippy-paradise in the forest where they sang folk - so I set e.g. Under The Greenwood Tree to tune of The Gentleman Soldier &c. For Hymen's Wedding Hymn in the last scene {"Wedding is Great Juno's Crown' V iv 140}, sung chorally by all the 'courtiers', I used Kelvingrove ["The Shearing's No' for You" ], which all said fitted it beautifully. So I offer it as a humble suggestion - no royalties expected. The name 'Hymen' in the song, nowadays having other connotations, could be altered to something like 'Wedlock' perhaps.

I don't see why the lack of power should prevent instrumental music at all. Can't you find someone who plays the fiddle, or pipes, or flute, or (well why not?) even accordion? Or some combination of these? I think a tune (with no words) would be better for a processional march, leaving the song idea until later in the ceremony. That gives you a lot more scope, as all sorts of tunes are powerful and stirring enough to serve the purpose, regardless of their titles. A single piper would provide a dramatic start to the occasion.

At our daughter's wedding, her cousin and uncle sang "One hand, one heart" from West Side Story, with guitar accompaniment. I think it's one of the simplest, loveliest wedding songs there is. But maybe not suitable for a march, better for a more reflective moment later in the proceedings.

Would this be a good time to point out that one of the 2 best known(aand most used) Wedding Marches, The Wagner one from Lohengrin, that is the "Here comes the Bride" one, is actually done acapella (without ANY orchestral accompaniment) in the opera? so a small chorus of voices might be able to carry it off?

In Scandinavia they have loads of wonderful wedding marches, normally played by one or more fiddlers.

Might help your search: the 'real' title of the "Here Comes the Bride" song is "Bridal Chorus."

We have done "Mairie's" Wedding at one and "Come Write me Down" (aka The Wedding Song) at two others although you do have to watch the audience joining in the repeats and slooowwwwiiiiinnnnnngggggggg down the chorus in the Wedding Song.
Oh yeah a group of us also did the Bryan Adams Song from Robin Hood "Look into my Eyes or whatever it's called) at another.
ALL couples are still together too.
