I have attended about 10 weddings in the last few years and it seems like each one played ALL the same music. It is my goal to not have a cookie cutter wedding therefore I need non-cookie cutter music. We have pretty much decided on our processional song (Feels Like Home – Chantal Kreviazuk) and our first dance (The Luckiest – Ben Folds) but we’re stumped on the rest. Does anyone have any ideas for recessional, bridal party entrance, parents dance (I would like to find one song that will work for both mother/son and father/daughter as we don’t want to bore our guests too much with unnecessary dances), cake cutting and last dance? Thanks for the help!

The Beatles are a good option for the recessional song. We toyed around with using “All you need is love” and starting it as the minister was announcing “Mr. and Mrs. …” so that he spoke over the trumpet part. We decided that, although it would be funny, it might be a little much. I’m not sure about the parent’s song.
