I am guessing from your post you are not looking for traditional selections but I am using The Rejoicing from Fireworks Music by Handel. Is a DJ playing all ceremony music??

I had my musicians play "till there was you" 🙂 but i’m sure the beatles version would be just as nice 🙂 (which was our first dance)

We used the Royal Fireworks (we had a brass quintet), but I think The Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’  would work…

We also thought about the Halleluiah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah 🙂  Slightly irreverant, but fun.  Ditto the Star Wars theme  (or Raiders of the Lost Ark).

We’re using "Tenderness" by General Public.  Every time I hear it I think of the last scene of the movie "Clueless" where the girls are at the wedding scrambling to catch the bouquet. =)

Other top contenders were "Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve and "Beautiful Day" by U2.

We’re U2 fans. So we’re using Beautiful Day.

We used "Real, Real" by Nina Simone.  There’s a nice reference to a "great wedding day."  We’re also both huge Nina fans…

Random pop music cautionary tale that I was just thinking of this weekend….

When the song "Joy to the World" (you know, pop song, not Christmas carol) first came out, some friends of my parents used it as a recessional.  Super-cute idea, if you think of the refrain that repeats: "Joy to the world, all the boys and girls…"

But all the guests were very confused when the wedding party got ready to walk, the music got cued up, and the first words of the song echoed through the church.  That’s right: "JEREMIAH WAS A BULLFROG…"

Because we’re getting married in September (and our original anniversary is in Sept), we are using…September by Earth, Wind, and Fire!
