I have been thinking about music and songs lately so wanted to see if anyone else has theirs picked out. What are you doing for the ceremony, introductions, first dance, father/daughter, mother/son, cake cutting, gater/bouquet, last song, OR any other special ones?
Butterfly Waltz for the BM’s, Bridal March for me and my dad, and then possibly Wouldn’t it be nice as our recessional
I am not really sure about these yet but was thinking Macho Man for the garter Toss, Going to the Chapel for the bouquet Toss, I’ve had the time of my life for the last dance. Father/Daughter I am torn between Butterfly Kisses and Because you loved me. And thats all we have!

I was thinking about P.Y.T by Michael Jackson for the bouquet toss
The Point of it All by Anthony Hamilton for our first dance
The Bridal party will walk down the aisle to an instrumental of Ribbon in the Sky by Stevie Wonder and I am walking down the aisle to For You by Kenny Lattimore but my best high school friend is going to sing
Still weighing some options for the father/daughter dance.

Hey I wanted to update this a little bit!! Still don’t know a lot, but we have a few down and just figured out our first dance!
Bridal party processional: Hummingbird Heart by Charlene Kaye
Bridal processional: Neighborhood 1 (Tunnels) by the Arcade Fire (I changed my mind before but am back to my first choice after all)
Recessional: Sora wa maru de (English Ver.) by Monkey Majik
First Dance: Dress & Tie by Charlene Kaye ft. Darren Criss
Other major songs we’ll need I guess are cake cutting, father/daughter mother/son dances (still need to make sure we are doing this), bouquet toss, and general tone of ceremony seating, cocktail hour, and dinner music.
