  • Bridal Party Entrance: Thunderstruck – ACDC (was rocking out in the car one day and Fiance and I had some revelation that this would be perfect for some reason lol)
  • Cake Cutting: Love – Nancy Adams (It’s the little love song from Disney’s Robin Hood if you’ve ever seen that)
  • Bouquet Toss: You Can’t Hurry Love – The Supremes 
  • Garter Toss: You Shook Me All Night Long – ACDC

My Fiance really wanted to use Addicted by Saving Abel for taking the garter off of me, but I feel super uncomfortable with that so he’s changing that one. It’s just not a song that I want playing in front of my mom’s conservative family…

Cake cutting: The Archies, “Sugar Sugar”

We didn’t do a garter toss, but we did a “Longest-lasting couple” dance to the Beatles’ “When I’m 64”.  My grandparents won–62 years of wedding bliss and counting–and it was so cute!

Bridal Party Entrance:  Just Can’t Get Enough – BEP

Cake Cutting:  Good Life- OneRepublic

First Dance:  Love You Madly- Cake


To get the dancing started, right when the reception venue opens to the guests the our parents are dancing to “On the Floor” by JLo and Pitbull.  All the parents are GREAT dancers and we’re hoping this will loosen people up to start dancing after dinner… plus get the night off to a fun start!  They’re going to start by dancing with each their spouse, then Mother of the Bride and Father of the Groom will dance while Mother of the Groom and Father of the Bride dance, then they’ll go back to spouses, etc.  I’ve seen this at a couple weddings and it ALWAYS gets the night going:)

Good luck!
