I got a headache from trying to go through the lists of recommended songs. I’m also in the midst of intensive graduate classes, so when I met the DJ last week, I just gave him the license to choose what songs he saw fit. He knows better than I do!

The only song my fiance and I picked out was for our first dance – “More” by Frank Sinatra.

I’ll post the list of songs when he gives them to me 🙂

@icetea:  Congratulations! That’s so awesome that you’re graduating the week before your wedding! I still have at least a year to go.

I only have the ceremony itinerary so far, not the reception songs yet. Btw, I love your bouquet toss song!
