Picking the music has been SO hard for me for some reason! But so far these are what we have picked…although it’s not set in stone.
My Entrance: Marry Me- Train (instrumental guitar)
Recessional: You Are the Best Thing- Ray LaMontagne
First Dance: You Make it Real- James Morrison
Father/Daughter: Butterfly Kisses Brad Carlisle
Cake Cutting: Haven’t picked but thinking Michael Buble- How Sweet it is or Colbie Cailait- I Do
Bouquet Toss: Little Whie Church- Little Big Town
Garter Toss: You Shooke Me All Night Long (FI fave song of all time)- ACDC
Again…a lot of the reception songs aside from the dances are not set in stone, just some top choices.Hopefully we get them set in stone soon!

We aren’t doing a ton of the other traditional stuff, so we only had a few songs to think of. My cousin is going to sing them with an acoustic guitar.
My entrance at the ceremony – Wedding Dress by Matt Nathanson
Our recessional song – Forever my Friend by Ray LaMontange (he is chopping this song up a lot, some parts of it are about breaking up)
Our first dance – How Bad We Need Each Other by Marc Scibilia
