We’re using Stevie Wonder’s "Signed Sealed Delivered".  I can’t wait!

We were more traditional with a song called "Trumpet Tune." It was so happy and upbeat and fit the mood perfectly!

We are having a violinist play, and we are going to have her play Viva la Vida ( I think) for the recessional. It sounds amazing and violin and is very upbeat.

We had our string trio learn the chorus to U2’s Beautiful Day.  It was awesome!!

How funny that the two comments above mine referrence Beautiful Day! Our official "song" has been been Beautiful Day since the first month we were dating. Although we always thought (for some reason) that we would dance to the song, practicing soon proved that it doesn’t have a rhythm you can dance to.

However, we soon realized we could use it in another celebratory way – our recessional! It reminds me of the first summer we started dating everytime I hear the chorus and I cannot imagine a better way to exit the church as husband and wife!

We’re also doing a string version of Beautiful Day! FI and I want to be a bit dramatic and have them start before we’re pronounced husband and wife so we can kiss on the chorus =P.

I’m thinking either 99 Luft Balloons by Nena or Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins. FI LOVES Danger Zone so I think we need to use it somewhere and what better place than for the recessional!?

so far I like Bold as Love by Jimi Hendrix.

I am working on creating my wedding song list on this new site i found. you can store your wedding list by category and send the list out to friends and get their suggestions. Could be a handy tool while planning everything. This way you can add to it little by little and have a massive list for your DJ to follow when the day comes. no electric slide at my wedding. ha. Check out my songs so far.
