I will add that the bridal party entrance song does have personal meaning. It has been an ongoing joke on those drunken stupid nights between me and the best man. Lol

Great Choices! Love the bridal entrance song because it has meaning; those choices make your day that much more personal! Me and my Fiance are still working on this list; it’s so much harder than it sounds! Best Wished on your wedding day = )

Thanks everyone! I did this list in about 3 hours. I was surprised that I accomplished it so quickly! Thanks to youtube & google 🙂 Luckily I have a good list of my favorite artists and I didn’t want ANYTHING that was popular or heard obsessively on the radio. I started googling “Jack Johnson wedding songs” or “fun recessional wedding songs”. Then I would look up those songs on youtube. I was surprised that I actually found a lot that I liked. We saw Michael Franti & Spearheard a few summers ago when they played at a music festival with Dave Matthews Band (who is my #1 obsession. I’ve seen them around 46 times since I was a teenager!). I also saw Ben Harper a few summers ago in Washington when he opened for Dave Matthews Band. Good times 🙂

@kaa02c: Our DJ is amazing. He can pick whatever he wants for cocktail hour. He has a list of musicians we like.
