Music for seating of the parents, grandparents, etc

Ladies,

I have all of the rest of my music but am stumped on what to have for the seating of the parents, etc.  What are you ladies having?

What type of music are you looking for?  We used all classical music (formal church wedding) and we used the setting of "Ave Maria" by Franz Beibl for the seating of the parents/grandparents.  There's several verses so it was easy to customize it to the exact right length.  It's a really beautiful piece-- we had it played by organ and flute.

Here's a link if you want to listen:

We're using Sunrise, Sunset!  Perfect song for the seating of the parents/grandparents!


Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?

I don't remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he get to be so tall?

Wasn't it yesterday
When they were small?

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

What words of wisdom can I give them?
How can I help to ease their way?

Now they must learn from one another
Day by day

They look so natural together
Just like two newlyweds should be
Is there a canopy in store for me?

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears

Look up "Find Your Wings" by Mark Harris - absolutely beautiful song for the occasion:

It's only for a moment you are mine to hold
The plans that heaven has for you
Will all too soon unfold
So many different prayers I'll pray
For all that you might do
But most of all I'll want to know
You're walking in the truth
And If I never told you
I want you to know
As I watch you grow

Chorus:
I pray that God would fill your heart with dreams
And that faith gives you the courage
To dare to do great things
I'm here for you whatever this life brings
So let my love give you roots
And help you find your wings

May passion be the wind
That leads you through your days
And may conviction keep you strong
Guide you on your way
May there be many moments
That make your life so sweet
Oh, but more than memories

Chorus:

It's not living if you don't reach for the sky
I'll have tears as you take off
But I'll cheer as you fly

Chorus

I've never heard Sunrise, Sunset - that's a beautiful song!  Are there any other singers that have done the song (besides the fiddler on the roof version)?

IndyCindy - that's a great song too!  I am definitely thinking of that song for my father/daughter dance now.  =) Thanks!

ninabridetobe:  I have no idea if there are any other singers that have done Sunrise, Sunset.  My cousin is in a quartet and all, and I've heard him sing that song over years.  Actually, he's the only one I've ever heard sing it.  If it wasn't for him, I'm not sure if I'd have ever come in contact with it.  I've never seen Fiddler on the Roof either.  But it's a really great song!

The words in the song "sunrise, sunset" are very beautiful and suitable for grandparents listening.
