I need a wedding march... for free?

Anybody know of a place to download a nice wedding march? I'm doing my stepson's wedding video (So what if he got married 3 years ago? I was volunteered!), and have tried searching with little luck. I'm just looking to use it, not buy or sell it.

It's not free but pretty close to it. If you have Smartound Sonicfire Pro their Producer's Series CD13, Wedding Classics, has several versions. If you have access to the software but don't have that CD and/or don't want to buy the full disk, you can audition and select the cut you want to use online, then purchase and download just that cut for I think it's $20. That way you're perfectly legal and you can take advantage of Smartsound's ability to adjust time and tempo to your video's needs.

BTW, here's a site with a nice rendition I located by googling "mendelssohn wedding march" -- http://www.virtuallybaroque.com/track122.htm

I don't have those, and really don't want to do weddings either. I'll leave that to you folks. When they got married, I just got my cameras, and was volunteered to shoot the bloody thing. It's been almost 3 years now, and coming up on their anniversary. I didn't bother to edit anything, because I was pretty sure they'd be split before I finished. I was right too. But, they have been back together for a while now, and I'm feeling generous. And, since I hadn't gotten any of my mics or audio equipment yet, the natural audio is garbage, hence the need to find a march. That site you linked to should work out fine though, so thanks :)

Thanks Peter, but the link Steve posted had a suitable version, so I "borrowed" it. Not the best, but then, neither is their video. I guess it's true, you get what you pay for ;)

I have to say though, my wife loves it, but she is easy. Her favorite part was when they had the dollar dance. Not sure how common these things are, but apparently you toss a dollar into a basket for a dance with the bride or groom. The boy's new father in law walks up to him, grabs him, and starts slow dancing- all with the most sincere look on his face! So, I cut it, slowed it down, and layed in Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers. She about lost it. I'm sure the kids will just love it too.
