Replying so I can come back to this thread..!

 

Here’s what I have so far..  

[Have all classical for the ceremony/cocktail hour because we hired a string trio.. so psyched]

 

PRELUDE: Random selections by string trio

PROCESSIONAL: “Canon in D” – Pachelbel

BRIDE ENTRANCE: “Air on the G String” – Bach

INTERLUDE: 

RECESSIONAL: “Hornpipe” – Handel 

POSTLUDE:

FIRST DANCE: “Fool For You” – John Butler Trio

WEDDING PARTY: “The Anthem” – Pitbull

MOTHER/SON: “The Way You Look Tonight” – Michael Buble

FATHER/DAUGHTER: “I’ll Be There” – Jackson 5 [contemplating on having combined parent dances to above Buble song though]

CAKE CUTTING: “Horses” – Joseph Arthur

ANNIVERSARY: 

BOUQUET TOSS: Think I’m opting out of this tradition and instead offering my bouquet to the longest-married bride in the house 😉

GARTER REMOVAL: Eliminating this too.. no bueno!

LAST DANCE:  Not sure, but I think “Love Generation” by Bob Sinclair would be cool 🙂
