We are having a cd playing of the flowing rather then any one song for any one bit: 

 

Drive by incubus

 

Sold my soul by black label society

 

Sky is over by serj tankian

 

Smooth criminal by alien ant farm (because its fun to finish) 

 

….

 

We are a having a band play covers for the evening party so no set first dance etc just when ever we feel like doing bits. 

We only sort our last night 🙂

@AngelaReneeClaire:  I was just looking at all this music today! (Of course, we have NO MUSIC planned yet.) I do love the pieces from P&P but it just isn’t quite dramatic enough for me. But I did like the idea of having it -and other such music – playing while everyone is milling around. Did you need to give the music to your DJ or did he get it for you? (Or maybe something else…)

  • Wedding: March 2014

Family Seating-misc. we have a pianist for the ceremony and a dj for the reception, so random songs from movies, esp disney love songs and final fantasy peices

Processional-we are doing this a bit differently, the groom and groomsmen are walking down the aisle to the indiana jones theme song, then the bridesmaids are walking down to the piano version of train’s marry me, then the kids are walking down to the piano version of “when you wish upon a star”

Bride’s entrance-piano version of adele’s “make you feel my love”

Unity ceremony Aerith’s theme from Final Fantasy 7 (piano version)

Recessional piano version of “more than a feeling”

Grand March/ Reception entrance-U2&Greenday’s “the saints are coming” (We’re huge N.O. Saints football fans)

First Dance Crazy Love, the cover by Audra Mae

Father/Daughter Dance willie nelson’s “angel flying too close to the ground”

Mother/Son: T Carter Music, “a mother’s song”

Cake Cutting-Natalie Cole’s ‘This Will Be (an everlasting love) or Sixpence non the richer’s kiss me

Bouquet/garter removal/toss-not doing bouquet toss I think, but maybe a garter removal with the star wars imperial march theme or the mission impossible theme

Last Dance eric clapton’s wonderful tonight

Family Seating – we don’t really have much family walking in. Everyone is in e bridal party so this will be part of the processional I guess

Processional – I’m leaning towards Vitamin String Quartet doing “In Your Eyes” 

Bride’s entrance – same as above

Unity ceremony – not having one

Recessional – bagpiper (we’re getting married in scotland) 

Grand March/ Reception entrance – not sure if we’re doing one. If we do, will likely be the bagpiper again. 

First Dance – probably “The Best is Yet to Come” by Frank Sinatra

Father/Daughter Dance – not having one, not doing Mother/son either 

Cake Cutting – didn’t even realize I should have music for is. Probably will just ask the DJ to play something nice

Bouquet/garter removal/toss – not doing this 

Last Dance – no idea yet. This is still on the to do list 🙂
