In am a bit clueless about wedding music. I know most of the reception people usually just let their dj play whatever or play off a list but it seems like everyone is talking about stuff like garter toss song, cake cutting songs, etc…. Does anyone have a list of all of these special instances? I know father/daughter dance is another but anyway….I was just wondering.
Also what about the ceremony? I feel like I’ve seen posting where many have a bunch of songs picked out for this too. I guess I never heard of playing music during a ceremony other than then while you are waiting for it to start and then the bridal march or whatever it is called and then at the very end. So, anyone have a list or know where one is posted?

I’ve picked out songs for the following. The DJ will do the rest.
– bridesmaids walk down aisle
– bride’s walk down aisle
– signing of the registry
– bridal party entrance
– Bride and groom entrance
– First song
– Father/Daughter & Mother/Son Dance
– Bouquet Toss
– Garter Toss
– Cake Cutting
– Final Song of the night

I did the same as babeandbabe did….. I picked all the main stuff and then just left the rest up to the DJ. Technically, our DJ had all these worksheets for us to fill out with music we liked, music we didn’t want played, etc. – and any like a stressed out neurotic bride, i filled it out and then didn’t save it and ended up with blank pages. Luckily our DJ was on our wavelength with music and filled in all the gaps for us with no problem!
If I were you, I’d just focus on the main stuff.
For the ceremony – processional, bridal entrance, recessional
For the reception – bridal party entrance, bride & groom entrance, first dance, second dance (if you want one), father/daughter, mother/son, cake cutting, and garter/bouquet toss if you do one (we didn’t do either).
Any good DJ should be able to take care of the rest for you. And guess what – if you don’t know what to use for, say, your cake cutting song – your DJ can give you suggestions, or he can just pick a song for you and NOBODY will know the difference! Good luck!
