Wedding Music

I've already mentioned that I'm a huge procrastinator and indecisive, now that we have that out of the way let's move onto the important topic: Music.

So I have wanted to poll all my loyal readers about their music choices for their wedding (or dream wedding). I'm getting married in a church so all that music is taken care of but I'm looking for suggestions for the big ticket items as I call them.

1. Bridal party introductions into the reception
2. Bride & groom intro into reception
3. First Dance
4. Father/Daughter dance
5. Mother/Son dance
6. Last song of the evening

We have a good idea of what we're going to use but I wanted to see what all my bffs used and if you had any good ideas, suggestions, or other fun music to incorporate into the wedding!

Only 11 more days!!!

  10. yay! your day is SO close!

    we entered to the sound from the good, the bad and the ugly - it's a classic western movie song, you'll recognize it if you youtube it. it was a fun start to the evening.

    i love love ingrid michaelson's "take me the way i am" as a first dance song. i also love "kiss to build a dream on" by louis armstrong.

    good luck!!!
