Mother of the bride and groom song suggestions

My son and his fiancee are planning their wedding which will be in Novemeber.  They are trying to choose a song for myself and her mother to walk down the aisle to.  So far we have Michael W. Smith's The Blessing and Michael W. Smith's The Giving.  

 

I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions for a song.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Something happy and welcoming, nothing sad and sentimental.  Something that conveys you are happy about the marriage.  Even if you aren't.

By "song" to mean a vocal piece? or an instrumental?

If you like classical, Air from Handel's Water Music or St. Anthony's Chorale by F.J. Haydn are appropriate. Hymne Vangelis (from "A Day to Remember" by The Piano Brothers and A Thousand Years by Chrsitina Perry/David Hodges are popular now apparently. Hope this helps.

I didn't realize people got walk up music in weddings.  Is this a new trend?

There was a song, that had the words, "where are you going, my little one, little one" I would think for both that are about to wed from the mothers this would be sweet.

 

"Turn Around" by the Brothers Four.  I looked it up.  Listen to it on YouTube.

I was just thinking the same thing, if you can get through it without crying. (I wouldn't be able to.)
