We’ve been booked with our DJ since Dec 2011. But with the wedding less than 1 month away he started to get on us to actually fill out the music forms. And it was HARD!!! Here’s what we’ve come up with 🙂
Grand Entrance: Final Countdown- Europe (Gob Bluth’s magic song from Arrested Development!!)
1st Dance: Unforgettable- Nat King Cole and Natalie Cole (Unforgettable is engraved on my grandfather’s grave)
Cake Cutting: Love me Tender- Elvis Preseley
Bouquet Toss: Theme from Mission Impossible (we’re going to have all non-married folks participate)
Add other songs you’re using!

Entrance = All of the Lights – Kanye West & Rihanna
1st Dance = In My Life – The Beatles
Cake Cutting = How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You) – Marvin Gaye
We’re skipping the bouquet/garter toss.

I got a headache from trying to go through the lists of recommended songs. I’m also in the midst of intensive graduate classes, so when I met the DJ last week, I just gave him the license to choose what songs he saw fit. He knows better than I do!
The only song my fiance and I picked out was for our first dance – “More” by Frank Sinatra.
I’ll post the list of songs when he gives them to me 🙂

@everyheart: Haha seriously! We said the same to our DJ but he made us anyway. Can’t wait to hear what yours picks. It was so much work to pick out all these stupid songs haha!
