We defintely like a variety of music, except country.. we aren’t that big of country fans.. we like a lot of older type music. His parents are super excited for our wedding bc they like the same music we do! LOL.

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)
