  • Wedding: December 2014

We have just been working on our music choices and this is what we have so far:

Prelude: We’ve made a playlist of our friends’ and family’s wedding songs for this.

Processional: A friends is singing this live. We’ve given him this shortlist which he will choose from –

  • This Old Love by Lior
  • Lovesong by Adele
  • Come Away with Me by Norah Jones
  • Don’t You think its Time by Bob Evans
  • One Day by Melody Gardot
  • When I See You Smile by Bic Runga
  • That’s How Strong My Love Is by Otis Redding

Signing the register: Stand By Me by Ben E. King (my parent’s wedding song – sung live by my cousin)

Recessional: You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontage

Postlude: Feeling Good by Nina Simone (we may swap this and You Are the Best Thing around)

First Dance: Real Love by Regina Spektor

After First Dance (where everyone joins in): Could I Have This Dance by Anne Murray (my FI’s parents’ wedding song)

Last Dance: It’s the End of the World as We Know It by R.E.M.

Other ideas:

Songbird by Fleetwood Mac (there’s also a beautiful Eva Cassidy version)

Make You Feel My Love by Adele

Darlin’ Won’t You Come by Bob Evans

You Belong to Me by Jason Wade

Day Too Soon by Sia

You Are My Joy by Reindeer Section

Somewhere Only We Know by Keane

If This is It by Newton Faulker

You’ve Got the Love by Florence and the Machine

Nothing’s Real but Love by Rebecca Ferguson

Learnalilgivinanlovin by Gotye

Into My Arms by Nick Cave

Still into You by Paramore

Can’t Help Falling in Love by Ingrid Michaelson

Beautiful to Me by Little Birdy

The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson

If I Ain’t Got You by Alicia Keys
