So I am putting together the list of songs that I have that will be played during my wedding. I am having a hard time selecting some songs for certain moments… such as: Mother/Son dance, Bouquet Toss, Garter Toss…

We are using "Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong for the father/dauther mother/son combo dance, "Single Ladies" by Beyonce for the bouquet toss, and "Dancing with Myself" by Billy Idol for the garter toss. We are also using "How sweet it is" by James Taylor for the cake cutting.

My friend had Sunrise-Sunset from Fiddler On The Roof for the mother-son dance and it just gave me chills.
I love Single Ladies for the bouquet toss, what a fun idea!
For the garter toss I think it could be a really funny moment to do some cheesy ‘vampy’ music…ha, ha, you would be my hero if you broke out some 1970s Shaft style music, but that might be a bit much…
For the cake cutting I think I will use one of the songs that doesn’t make the final First Dance cut…I have about 4 that I am enamored with and since I can’t use them all that is the other opportunity for a ‘couple’ song.

What about "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole for the mother/son dance? You can do some really fun songs for the bouquet toss and garter…..Cherry Pie might be fun for the garter removal.

We’re doing a parent/child dance (I’ll dance with my step dad, FI with his mom) to Blackbird by the Beatles. Beautiful and non cheesy.

We are still trying to pick a few. It has taken us a really long time to decide on our songs because a lot of our friends are also getting married now and we didn’t want ALL of our songs to be the same ones everyone else is using. So far our picks are:
Our Entrance: Hold My Hand by New Found Glory
First Dance: Tangled Up In You by Staind
Father/Daughter: My Wish by Rascal Flatts
Mother/Son: I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack
Cake Cutting: maybe, Let It Be Me by Ray LaMontagne haven’t completely decided yet
We found the best way to pick songs was to make sure they had a meaning for us in the words, and we weren’t picking something just because we liked it. Good Luck!
