This is why I’m glad we’re not having a DJ–just picking all the music ourselves and burning some CDs. 😉 I agree that “Every Breath You Take” is one of the creepiest damn songs ever, though.

Yes!  At my own wedding!  DH really wanted to add Nelly’s “Hot in Herre” (kinda inappropriate) and John Mayer’s “Your Body is a Wonderland” (just creepy at a wedding) to the playlist.  In the end I relented as everyone was at least 4-5 drinks in and unfazed.

We finished our playlist this weekend, and we are in love with it! Since we view our wedding as a party where there will be a wedding, we chose many of the same songs we play when we have all of our friends over and picked songs we know people will dance to. It is Halloween so there are also several Halloween songs. I am certain some people would view many songs as inappropriate, and we are also certain our great aunts will not be partaking in “push it” or other rap songs we have included (both 90s and modern) that we have. But it is OUR wedding, where we want to dance to the songs we like and our friends like, not be forced into songs we don’t like just because they are wedding-y or “appropriate”

I was at a wedding where the first dance was “Time to Say Goodbye” sung by Andre Bocelli. I thought that was sad for the first song! I LOVE that song, but I thought it was odd for a first dance. Nobody else seemed to notice however, I figure I must have been over analyzing because I have an English degree and analyzing was all I did for 4 years haha!!

Buck Cherry, “Crazy B!tch” at my FBIL’s wedding. It was a really trashy wedding so it fit right in, but oh God was it awkward. Future Mother-In-Law was singing along. My SO is a doll but his family is WEIRD.

My best friend wanted the bridal party to walk in to Billy Idol’s “White Wedding”  before her mother reminded her of what it’s about.

I recently attended a wedding where the DJ played “Rude Girl by Rihanna. I made sure NOT to hire that DJ

A friend and her husband walked into “18 to Life” by Skid Row. They did it as a goof and lots of people thought it was funny.

When we were picking out songs off of a “commonly played” list from our DJ (who only plays weddings) we were both tickled to see that “Me So Horny” by 2 Live Crew was on there.

We giggled for days about that. Seriously?

I always think it’s hilarious when couples dance to U2’s (or the colaborative version with Mary J Blige…makes me melt) amazing tune “One” for their first dance.  Ummm….really?  Perhaps one of the most emotional and gut-wrenching songs I’ve ever heard, but it doesn’t bode well for the marriage!  LOL!
