Guns n Roses November Rain song

Did anyone have this record to walk down the isle to?

    its really about a doomed relationship so the words are not the most appropriate
  • This is one of my favourite GnR songs, truely fantastic, however, I agree with mrs scho 2b it is about the loss of love and not about the wonderfulness of starting your new lives together. I too tried to acompany rock music into my day, however only managed sweet child o mine, don't stop me now (queen) and living on a prayer (bon jovi) when everyone was well and truely wasted at the end of the night, it went down an absolute storm though and everyone got up to rock it There are some lovely rock balads out there which might be more appropriate. Sorry to ramble on....

    u may find the vicar wont let u play it with it being about a doomed relationship, our vicar has told us he wont allow songs like that

    I have to disagree - I don't think it's about a doomed relationship at all!

    "So never mind the darkness

    We still can find a way

    'Cause nothin' lasts forever

    Even cold November rain"

    If you don't necessarily fancy the full Guns and Roses version have you heard The String Quartet's cover? Might appease the more tradional side of things - but only if you want to - if you want it - go for it!

    I sooooooooooo wanted the instrumental version of this song too but H2B doesn't want it, I've placated him by having For the Love of A Princess the theme from Braveheart! I would have loved November rain tho!

    Marriage all about compromise isn't it!!

    Sorry but have you seen the video?! The bride dies! How much more doomed can you get?!image

    It is a great track though! I'm a huge fan of rock music - proper 80's stuff. I was brought up on it & sweet child 'o mine is my Dad's favourite - wonder why?! x

    We're having don't want to miss a thing by Aerosmith

    loooove the song! but also dont think its quite fitting for a wedding. weve been looking for ages for a good rock love song to play on accoustic plus violins but its really hard.

    bon jovi does a good version of born to be my baby on accoustic, but i do prefer guns n roses actually.

    let me know if somebody has a good suggestion.

    My idea is 

    Guns & R Nov Rain

    My favourite too

    My idea is to show not only Very this song but video displaying on screen

    That video awesome so


    doomed  means something ominous unhappiness related

    What's the point

    Point is
    my favourites all for video &  song

    That's classic combination  

    That's enough

    You may want ask your wed for how long time to be used for song / video
