Down the aisle song: Still deciding between instrumental versions of “In My Life”, by The Beatles, and “God Only Knows”, by The Beach Boys.

Recessional Song: Still deciding… Fiance gets to help pick, and he didn’t realise we need a song for that.

Entrance to Reception song: Something ridiculous and dance friendly. Need to get some booty shaking done!

First Dance: Hopefully “Make it Wit Chu”, by Queens of the Stone Age. Still trying to decide if too many people will pick up on what the song is actually about though… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wTxqHbJOzg

Father Daughter: I want it to be “Legs”, by ZZ-Top, but my dad wants something mushy and sentimental. “Legs” is pretty much our song, since he’d play it when I was really little, and we’d dance along to it.

Mother Son: “Some Neil Young song” his mom mentioned. He has no idea what though.

Bouquet Toss: Not doing.

Garter Toss: Not doing.

Cake Cutting: Not sure yet.
