This is very topical for me, because I’m doing my playlist now and would LOVE some help. Our ceremony music is all religious, yada yada. We aren’t doing music for the cake cutting etc and we aren’t doing a first dance etc etc because we don’t particularly enjoy dancing… although there will be music for those who want to dance, and lawn games for those who don’t. I like rock and metal, but I know that nobody else likes my music, so I’ve gone for “alternative super-lite”… stuff which people will know, and which isn’t completely shameful (I hope). Fiance has shocking tastes… he keeps asking for Elton John and Michael Jackson!

Aerosmith – Walk This Way
Kaiser Chiefs – I Predict a Riot / Ruby / Oh My God
Manic Street Preachers – You Stole the Sun From my Heart
Florence and the Machine – Rabbit Heart / You Got the Love

Free – All Right Now
Blur – Song 2

FI’s less cheesy choices:

99 Red Balloons (German Version)
Cat Stevens – Another Saturday Night

Processional – “Let Me Down Easy” – Billy Currington (for everyone, incl. me)
Recessional – “Home” – Phillip Phillips
Introductions – Can’t decide! “Throne Room/End Title” – John Williams/Star Wars Ep IV, “Victory Celebration/End Title” – John Williams/Star Wars Ep VI, maybe the Doctor Who theme (ca. 2008, the really dramatic one)?!

We haven’t decided on a first dance song yet. We aren’t doing a cake cutting/garter toss/bouquet toss or a father/daughter or mother/son.
