How do I enter the wedding music contest? Rules say to enter "on this page," but when I click on the highlighted phrase I am told the page doesn't exist! Please help.

As I mentioned last year, when we were all excited about upcoming nuptials of one of your splendid hosts, I have always dreamed of walking down the aisle to Aaron Copeland's Simple Gifts, and think that John Williams's Raiders of the Lost Ark theme song would make a fun, triumphant recessional.

I was the flower girl at a wedding 60+years ago in Germany when I first heard Handel's Largo from 'Xerxes'. I fell in love with the music, and when I hear it occasionally or at home via recording it never fails to move me to tears..

Over all these years it is still my favorite, and it was played for the procession by a string quartet at our daughter's wedding.
