Justbrynne:  my Fiance has insisted that we enter our reception to Timber by Pitbull & Ke$ha and that we sing along!! I guess it’s not really a guilty pleasure, but he’s really excited about it and it was either that or he wanted to leave our ceremony to that “everything is awesome” song. Timber was a compromise 😛

I really like hearing “I Gotta Feeling”, it’s SO overdone but I just love it.

Our garter toss was going to be to blurred lines but Future Mother-In-Law vetoed that. So we chose get lucky by daft punk instead.

My uncle (who is also my godfather) refused to do the chicken dance at my cousin’s wedding 11 years ago.  I asked him if he’d do it at mine and he said yes. So you’d better believe he’s doing it in front of everyone with me. 🙂  I’m not letting that little nugget of hilariousness get lost! 

We want a huge party with lots of laughter.  So the YMCA will likely get played later in the evening.  Our ‘must play’ list is ridiculous.  None of it is serious stuff, its all songs we like to get goofy and jump around during: 

REO Speedwagon – Keep on Lovin’ You 

GNR – Paradise City, Sweet Child of Mine, 

AC/DC – You Shook Me All Night Long 

Spirit of the West – Home for a Rest 

Great Big Sea – End of the World 


The way its shaping up, there’s going to be a few songs for my parents and his parents (their requests) and then the rest of the night will be songs we like from various decades.  I highly doubt there will be much in the way of current Top 40.  It’ll be stuff from when we were kids in the 80s, teen in the 90s and from our university years in the early 2000s.

I love wedding music! I think I love it so much because it’s multi-generational so everyone knows it and can dance to it! We had a lot of it at our wedding (though I did say no to Thriller, electric slide Macarena and chicken dance). I love “shout” Cupid shuffle, don’t stop believing… Bring it on! I think it’s all a blast 🙂 We also did “I gotta feeling” as our first “get pumped up” song and it was AMAZING! Everyone was raving and jumping up and down on the dance floor . I didn’t hear anyone say “Gosh, this is overdone!” They are popular and classics for a reason!
