I’d have 8 hrs.  As for music choices, I’d suggest stuff each of you both like and some stuff your family/friends will like.  Maybe softer stuff w/o words during dinner?

I don’t know how much help this will be, but here is the music I am going to use for our cocktail hour/dinner . . . It’s the nice and sometimes fun music we love, but isn’t good for dancing.

I do think Josh Radin and Iron & Wine-type groups would be good for soft dinner music.

Cocktail Hour/Dinner
Stand by Me – Ben E. King
Anything You Want – Roy Orbinson
In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel 
My Girl – The Temptations
Every Day – Buddy Holly
Umbrella – Mandy Moore 
How Sweet It Is to be Loved by You – James Taylor
Dancing in the Moonlight – King Harvest
Here Comes Your Man – The Pixies
You Picked Me – A Fine Frenzy
Today – Joshua Radin
Ain’t No Mountain High Enough – Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
Tiny Dancer – Elton John
A Lover Like You – Avett Brothers
Something Good This Way Comes – Jakob Dylan 
First Day of My Life – Bright Eyes
January Wedding – The Avett Brothers
Wagon Wheel – Old Crow Medicine Show
Whatever it is – Zac Brown Band
Such Great Heights – The Postal Service
Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy – Queen

I’m starting to feel like my various posts are useless to others since our wedding is a little ‘different’ than most. Our wedding is all about Phish (yeah, the band) and we went to an evening at Carnegie Hall where Phish’s lead singer/guitarist performed with the NYC symphony. We’re using that as our dinner music.

I put together an Ipod list for our cocktail hour and it consisted of light music including michael buble, frank sinatra, john mayer, jason mraz, barry white, barry manilow and other songs that are just lovey and light. I put a few upbeat songs in there so it wasn’t boring though!

Our DJ is doing spanish guitar/Buena Vista Social Club during cocktail hour and then we’re switching to “Rat Pack” for dinner.
