Ceremony (all string versions, either VSQ on sound system or we’re hiring a string quartet, not sure yet): 

While guests are arriving/being seated: Wild Horses (Rolling Stones), Halo (Beyoncé), Everything (Michael Buble), Marry You (Bruno Mars) and I really LOVE the string version of When I Come Around (Green Day) but idk if that’s acceptable for a wedding…

Parents & wedding party entrance: Probably I’m Yours (Jason Mraz) or maybe something else…

When I walk down the aisle: Can’t Help Falling in Love (my parents’ song & they don’t know I’m gonna walk down the aisle to it – hopefully can keep that quiet for the next 18 months lol). 

Sand Ceremony: Not sure. A close family friend is going to sing during this, still looking for a good song. 

Recessional: Probably Here Comes the Sun (Beatles)

We don’t have reception songs yet, except our first dance. We picked Everything by Ben Harper.

Right down the line is the best song! Had to comment cause I don’t  see/hear that song very often 

Processional: something by Handel, it’s been  awhile I can’t remember. Definitely not messiah. 

Recessional: My Girls by animal collective

Reception Entrance- Handle me with care, Jenny Lewis

First dance: Never tear us apart, St Vincent 

Father daughter: That’s how strong my love is, otis redding

Cake cutting: Young folks, pbj

Garter toss: Here comes your man, the pixies 

Bouquet toss: I think it was girls by beastie boys but I can’t remember

Last Dance: Keep on loving you, Reo Speedwagon

Our first dance song is either going to White Shoes by Conor Oberst or Such Great Heights by Iron and Wine.  

Songs that will be in the wedding we just don’t know when: Hands Down by The Dashboard Confessional, All The Small Things by Blink 182, Five Years Time by Noah and The Whale. 

I know I’m forgetting a bunch!
