For us a 1950s Primary school parody was

Here comes the bride
All fat and wide
Doesn't she wiggle
From side to side

You may well have a doozy of a question there. Everybody thinks they know the song, but maybe what you quotes is all there is. All I know of are parodies. Here are a couple:
    Here comes the bride,
    all dressed in white.
    Stepped on a turtle,
    and down came her girdle.


    Here comes the bride
    all dressed in white
    slipped on a banana peel
    and went for a ride.


    Here comes the bride, all dressed in white
    I said I do, to marry you
    You said you'd carry a slob like me
    You said you'd carry a slob like me
    Bride in black
    Bride In Black

A few sites on google say they have lyrics, but a plug-in or something is required.
All I ever heard at weddings was someone behind me saying 'Here comes the bride, here comes the bride, here comes....' over and over as the march was being played.

Funny, I just came across a wedding song in an old Victorian songbook which I soundly rejected- I'll see if I can find it again.
I believe the the tune "Here comes the Bride" as we know it is from an opera (Lohengrin?) and as such would have German Lyrics. It was made popular by Queen Victoria's daughter, who also made the white wedding dress popular, among other things. (hence, "all dressed in white"?) I have NEVER heard it sung, only played as a march, with a piece by Mendelsohn as a recessional.
You could check a wedding traditions site.

AHA! here is the lyric I found to the tune of "Here comes the Bride" as I suspected from the opera Lohengrin by Richard Wagner
This is a translation appearing in the Franklin Square song collection circa1885

Guided by us, thrice happy pair
Enter this doorway, 'tis love that unites
All that is brave, all that is fair
Love now triumphant forever unites

Champion of virtue boldly advance
Flower of beauty gently advance
Now the loud mirth of revelling is ended
Night bringing peace and bliss has descended
Fanned by the breath of happiness rest
Closed to the world , by love only blest

Guided by us, thrice happy pair
Enter this doorway, 'tis love that unites
All that is brave, all that is fair
Love now triumphant forever unites

Whew!

From: GUEST,AD

Although a number of melodies may be suitable music for weddings, there are two in particular from the world of classical music which are most frequently played. One is the Wedding March by Mendelssohn which is the incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream. It became customary to play at marriage ceremonies from about the mid 19th Century.

The other is the Bridal Chorus by Richard Wagner. This is associated with weddings because it is used in his opera Lohengrin at the marriage between the title character and Elsa.

Guided by us, thrice happy pair

All that is brave, all that is fair
Love now triumphant forever unites
Champion of virtue boldly advance
Flower of beauty gently advance

Sweetly, serenly in the soft glowing light

How I remember we sung it in the schoolyard:

Tall, fat and wide
I might have said
She was good in bed
But then I would have lied

Here comes the groom
Riding on a broom
He saw her behind
And changed his mind
And swept out the room

Amos, I see AD posted the same lyrics, so maybe your credibility is increasing. I still believe it's just the first two lines that are "traditional" - those and a bunch of parodies. I think this may be a real phenomenon - a song that everybody knows the words to, except that it really doesn't have words.
Like the "Dragnet" theme, maybe: "Dunh-da DUNH-dunh, Dunh-da DUNH-da DAHHHH."

As Guest, Julia, stated, the march is from Wagner's 'Lohengrin' and the translation she found is as good as any I've seen. Those are the "official" words - but, obviously, we all know the myriad of variations much better.

From: Marje

Well if those "official" words are the best anyone can come up with, for heavens' sake leave it as an instrumental. They're dreadful words, reading very much like a clumsy translation of something that was pretentious and grandiose in the original (which I daresay is what they are). The syntax is chaotic (you can't even tell what the subject of some of the sentences is meant to be), it's fulll of heavy abstract concepts, and the rhymes are dire - repetition isn't rhyme. Awful stuff - write some new words or forget it, I'd say.

This isn't a parody, but a translation of the German words that are sung in Wagner's opera Lohengrin.

Joybell's version is the one I recall, but that's no surpise as I was also from Melbourne in the 50s. Guest AD mentioned that only two tunes (in particular) from classical music were associated with wedding tunes but neither was from Aida. I haven't had much to do with weddings for many years but I'm sure I recall Aida was the source of a really popular wedding march. But I'm blowed if I can recall it.

From a high-school opera festival (from long ago memory)
Maybe this is a more lyrical translation, it's probably less literal (I don't have the German available)

Faithful and true
We lead thee forth
Where love triumphant shall crown thee with joy
Star of renown
Flow'r of the earth
Bless'd be ye both far from all life's annoy

Champion victorious
Go thou before
Maid bright and glorious
Go thou before
Earth's noisy revel ye've forsaken
Tender delights for thee now awaken
Fragrant abode enshrine thee in bliss
Splendor and state in joy ye dismiss

Faithful and true etc.

If you think about what it's actually describing, it may be a tad racy for most wedding crowds....

The incidental music to "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (Mendelssohn)is the melody that goes with "Here comes the Bride". As far as I know, there is no traditional lyrics, only comic verses. The wedding march from "Lohengrin" (Wagner) is typically used as a recessional. Sorry, if I am stating the obvious.

Lyrics to the Wedding March are sung at the end of the film, "The Best Years of Our Lives", when Homer (Harold Russell) marries Wilma (Cathy O'Donnell).
The little children at the wedding sing, accompanied by Hoagy Carmichael on piano. It's been a long time since I've seen the movie, but to the best of my knowledge, the lyrics are quite close to those posted by Amos:

"Here comes the bride,
All dressed in white
Sweetly, serenely,
In the soft glowing light

Lovely to see
Marching to thee
Sweet love united
For eternity"

Sorry to be so boring & serious, but can anyone point me to a web page that has the DOTS for this melody? I can remember the first bits (that fit all the words posted above) but there's a middle part that is hazy in the old brain cells. I hate to buy anything just for such a small portion of the piece (which I don't even particularly like), but I have to do a harp arrangement of it for one of my students to play at a wedding, so I need to get the rest. Even if it's not downloadable, if I can just see the music notation on the screen I can copy it. Thanks!

I first heard the girl next door sing this, "Here comes the bride, all dressed in pride" which has a rather nice metaphorical ring. (Well, we WERE only 4 years old...)

Interesting to see the various messages in this thread over the years. Seems as if nobody (and I'm no exception) can remember more than a few lines of the "unofficial" words we used to sing as kids. As has been noted, Guest, Julia, way back in May '04 came up with a translation of the German words used in Lohengrin. I'd seen a translation of them myself somewhere and though I can't remember if they were exactly the same as those she quoted, the sense of them is certainly the same.

Also, Lucius mentioned above that the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin is used as a recessional and that the traditional processional is Mendelssohn's Wedding March (from the Incidental Music to A Midsummer Night's Dream, as stated). Actually the opposite is true. The Bridal Chorus was written with words sung by the opera chorus, and starts with the tune of "Here Comes the Bride." The Mendelssohn was written as strictly instrumental music to be played during breaks in the play.

Just for dating purposes — most of the 'fat & wide, see how she wobbles' versions above are attrib'd to the posters' own 50s childhoods. I learned it in my 30s childhood from my mother, born 1909, from her childhood recollections, So that verse goes back a good way.

here comes the bride
all fat and wide
see how she wobbles
from side to side
here comes the groom
thin as a broom
if the bride weren't so wide
then he'd have more room

as per 1950s London!

Here comes the bride,
She would have lied.
She has a guide
That would have lied

Here comes the groom,
Coming for her doom.
This is for you,
'Cause I have to use the loo (bathroom).


LOL A REMIX

For the record:

It comes back to me that in my mother's version, ca 2nd decade of C20 [see my entry 18 nov 09 1024], the Bride did not wiggle, waggle nor wobble, but "waddled" ~ an expressive verb for a fat·&·wide woman's movements that I don't think appears anywhere above.

From my childhood memories -

Here comes the bride
Sixty inches wide
Here comes the vicar
Sixty inches thicker

This is what I remember as a kid:

Here comes the Bride,
All fat and wide,
Here is the Groom,
Skinny as a Broom.

Here comes the bride
all fat and wide
slipped on a banana peel
and went for a ride
where does she go
south mexico
what does she see
a man doing a wee
what does she do
a big sloppy poo
where is she now
under a cow
the cow goes pbbt
and the kids say wow
