I am working on our song selections for the big day for our DJ & so far I have the walking down the aisle song for the bridal party & myself, the father daughter dance song, the mother son dance song, the first dance song for Fi & I, & then the bridal party entrance to reception song.
I am stumped on the cake cutting song, garter toss song, & bouquet toss song. I dont really even want to do a garter or bouquet toss, but FI wants to do it, so we will I guess. Also, am I forgetting anymore important song choices??

@TwoStatesBride: Ahhh we have similar taste!!! Im doing the piano guys a thousand years for walking down the aisle, I was thinking all the BMs and I could all walk to that since its a good 5 mins long. & I LOVE dave matthews! Seen him in concert probably 8-10 times. I wanted to do “when the world ends” but we decided on John Legends “all of me” instead.

Love that song so much! It came out after my wedding or we probably would have used it. We love his “Coming Home” as well. We played it during seating for the ceremony.

We haven’t fully chosen our songs yet, but the 4 songs we are sure of:
Walking down the aisle song: For my bridal party, they’ll walk down to A Thousand Years: Part 2 – Christina Perri, and I will walk to Feels Like Home – Chantal Kreviazuk.

We are not doing a garter toss and not sure about the parent dances either. I might use I Hope You Dance if I do chose a formal father/daughter dance.
