Christy42213: I thought the same thing! I didn’t know if they wanted songs that didn’t mention alcohol or adult beverages. I clicked on it because I wanted to see what the fuss was all about!

Songs are hardest… ugh.
I think I’m going to have a first dance be to A Couple of Forevers by Chrisette Michele and that’s all I got. Strangely enough… I have particular songs picked out for the Cocktail Hour already :/

I haven’t made it official yet, but I’m pretty sure I’m walking down the aisle to a live performance of Make You Feel My Love (the Adele version) and our first dance is going to be You and I by John Legend… well, that’s what we planned on, but now that the song is a single it may get overused and in that case, we won’t use it.
The processional and recessional will likely just be piano so I haven’t decided on a song. What did you all use for father-daughter dances?

Ladies help me out my future husband wants me to walk out to “Tess”the theme song from oceans 11 he says every time he hears it he thinks of me what do you think of that instead of the traditional wedding march?

I think my bridal party will walk to pianist playing ready for love india arie and when i enter the singer will start singing the song, probably last verse. I’m not particular about what plays for unity candle lighting. I’m not sure about recessional. I need to see what the pianist already knows. Both my parents will be walking me down so they don’t need a song. His parents will have a song we still need to choose.

So I am definitely using the Piano Guys to play Christina Perri’s a Thousand Years. And the last dance of the night will be Beyonce’s XO or Before I Let Go by Frankie Beverly and Maze…. just depends on who is on the dance floor. LOL.
