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!

Ceremony music will be played by the worship band that I am apart of. All the songs will be written mostly by my FI with parts written by me 🙂 He is  super excited about this and so am I 🙂

We have a DJ for the reception.

Haven’t decided about enterence music yet.

FI and I will write our first dance song together.

Father daughter dance is a fun Cape Verdian song.

Cake cutting song: a song by Cake (haven’t picked which one yet)

Bouquet toss: All the single ladies (of course)

Garter toss: the boys are back in town.

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
