We are meeting our DJ tonight and have to have our final songs in. We have short lists but nothing final.
Our first dance is between God Only Knows (Natalie Maines version), I Will Follow You Into the Dark and So Far Away by Staind. I Will Follow You Into the Dark would be awesome but like many others, I fear it may be too morbid. It’s also pretty short, which would be great. Fiance actually wants Cosmic Love by Florence + the Machine but I think it’s a tad long and seems like it might not be the easiest to dance to.
We really need to pick our processionals and recessional. Do you think the underlying lyrics to the song are really important with instrumentals? He wants to have Shake it Out by Florence or Leave Out All the Rest by Linkin Park as the first processional but I kind of think it should be something sort of related to love or weddings or the like.
Also, are you supposed to use a lovey-first dance type song for the last dance? The DJ had some suggestions that were like that (Lucky by Jason Mraz) and some that were like thanks for the memories types (Good Riddance by Green Day) and I’m not sure what direction we’re supposed to go in.
