Out of every decision we made for our wedding, I think the hardest for DH and I was deciding on what music to play at the wedding! I haven’t seen a rock music thread in a while… so! What songs did you use/will you use at your rocking wedding?
DH walked in to the ceremony to a symphonic version of Bittersweet Symphony (original by The Verve).
I walked in to Canon in D, but then we walked out to Canon Rock by JerryC!
Our grand entrace to the reception was to Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen.
Our first dance was the Chris Cornell version of Led Zeppelin’s Thank You.
But it was originally going to be a swing dance to Hold on Loosely by .38 Special.
Cake cutting was, of course, to Pour Some Sugar on Me.
And everyone at the reception, surprisingly enough, joined in for a giant group-sing to Paradise by the Dashboard Lights and Bohemian Rhapsody!
Can’t wait to see you ladies’ creativity at coming up with rocking wedding songs.

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)

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!! :+)

Old Time Rock and Roll was a huge hit at our wedding! And OH MY GOD the Darkness, I’m so disappointed I didn’t play any Darkness!
I’ve never heard your first dance song until now. Beautiful!
I never thought of using DWTMAT as a first dance song. What a great idea.
