You are my spirit animal.  I have a dog named after David Bowie and a cat named after Stevie Nicks lol.

I am still working on this, but we’ve secured a member of the E Street Band for the ceremony (sax – not sure how this is going to work but whatevs), and he’s going to sit in with a local band for the reception.  SO EXCITED!!  

Playing pre-ceremony:  #34 – Dave Matthews Band (instrumental sax kinda thing)

E Street guy sits with his wife, DJ takes over for ceremony.

Processional: All Day and all of the Night – The Kinks

Recessional: This Life – Bruce Springsteen

Reception must haves:

First Dance:  You & Me – Dave Matthews Band

Glory Days – Bruce Springsteen

Edge of Seventeen – Stevie Nicks

Little Bones – Tragically Hip

Ahead by a Century – Tragically Hip (I have lyrics from this song tattooed on my arm – MUST HAVE THIS lol)

Fireworks – Tragically Hip

Let’s Dance – Bowie

Old Time Rock n Roll – Bob Seger

Come on Feel the Noise – Quiet Riot

Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

I Believe in a Thing Called Love – The Darkness

I could go on forever!  My band is going to do mostly classic rock with some rockin’ country included there too 🙂

We are using a piano version of November Rain for wedding party and family to walk in. Then I’m walking in to a piano version of Just Like Heaven by the Cure.

I think we are going to walk out to the original Just Like Heaven. (I just want to kiss during that drum start!! Lol)

For our first dance it will be The Girl by City and Colour.

 You guys ROCK (see what i did there???)  as this is the FIRST thread that I actually relate to when it comes to music for our wedding!! :+)

Our first dance will likely be Don’t Want to Miss a Thing  by Aerosmith (my first suggestion was Thank You by Zepp but then FH looked at me w a weird smirk then i knew that was his first wedding dance song at first wedding…oops!) I also love Leather and Lace as a first dance song. 

This thread will help alot….following!! :+)
