@AmberAustin: My husband and I had the same issues at our wedding and it turned out fine. I am more into the “make sure people get up and dance” music where as he wanted the band to play Muse or Greenday. We had a lot of conversation about this with the band leader and basically he said that we need to trust them to make the best decision and get a sense of the crowd. I was very against motown but I have to tell you, the band got a feel for the crowd and got them out of there chairs and moving. Are you having a band or DJ?

We’re doing a combination, sort of. We’ll have modern but slower, laid back Christian songs for the prelude and wedding party processional. “Storybook Love” from the Princess Bride for my processional, so I suppose it’s not traditional but it fits well. We’ll probably include traditional during the ceremony, and our recessional is going to be something really fun and upbeat. I guess I’m not too worried about it flowing- it will be us and match our personalities and I think that’s the most important part.

A wedding I went to recently had all very traditional music, then the bride walked up to Here Comes the Sun in instrumental and the recession was Accidentally in Love by Counting Crows 🙂 It was a lot of fun and a good mix.
