We combined the father daughter with the mother son. So it started out with father/daughter and then mother/son joined part way through.  We danced to “blackbird” by the Beatles.

Bridal Party entered to “Goodlife” by One Republic

DH and I entered to “Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men (random, but we love that song)

My dad and I danced to “In My Life” by The Beatles. He’s a big fan and I grew up listening to them so that was special to us. My husband and his mom danced to “You are the Sunshine of my Life” by Stevie Wonder.

For our reception entrance we used “Pizza Guy” by Touch Sensitive.

Here is just a cut and paste from one of my emails with the DJ.  However, the two songs that got EVERYONE dancing were Jump Around by House of Pain and my niece requested Iggy Azaleas Fancy which surprisingly everyone danced to as well (this was in May, a bit more played out now).  We had 35 people, ages varying but everyone danced all night.  The drinks probably helped with that 😀  Forgive my spelling!

MrsJBtoB:  No problem!  I was really surprised at how well it went!  I knew my girlfriends would be dancing with me to it but the guys danced more than we did (thanks alcohol)!
