I’m curious what songs others have chosen for things like walking down the aisle, walking out of the ceremony as a married couple, your first dance, your dance with parents, other special reception dances, as well as songs that were must-plays on your playlist throughout the night.
So far, we have chosen our first dance song – Bright by Echosmith – but we haven’t decided on many others. I’ve been thinking of maybe My Girl by the Temptations as I walk down the aisle and I want to surprise him by having them play Watta Man by Salt n Peppa when he is making his way to the front hahaha
We definitely have to have the song Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede at some point during the reception, and I’ve been considering making it the song we talk out of the ceremony to. Friends of ours walked out to Signed Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder a couple years ago and I really liked that one as well but kind of want to do something different.
My Dad-Daughter dance will for sure be Bufferfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle because my Dad has always wanted that one.
Other songs that won’t have an official part in the wedding but will definitely be on the playlist are:
– Marry You – Bruno Mars
– Backstreet’s Back – Backstreet Boys (just because it’s mah jaaaam)
– That’s Amore – Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin
– Blank Space and Shake it Off – T-Swift (just because they’re fun)
– I’m Real – Ja Rule and J-Lo (lol)
– Safe and Sound – Hawksley Workman
– Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen
– I Got You – Hollerado
– A bunch of 90s hip hop and 2000s pop probably haha and probably a few classic rock ballads.

Mostly 60’s, 70’s and 80’s dance music! Though for the processional I’ll be walking down to a piano version of chasing cars by Snow Patrol. And for our first dance it will be Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest. We didn’t want anything TOO sappy, I’m so excited!
As a joke we may play “The rains of Castamere” from Game of Thrones for a minute or two during dinner, depending on the feel/vibe at the time. 😁

For walking down the aisle we had the instrumentals for Stairway to Heaven and Bittersweet Symphony. For walking down the aisle after the ceremony we had Another One Bites the Dust by Queen.
Then throughout the reception, we had some AC/DC, Guns & Roses, Lana Del Rey, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Led Zeppelin, etc. Basically a mix of classic rock and jazz/vocal jazz/swing.

- Wedding: June 2019 - Forest Grove, OR
We will be playing all 90’s. I will walk down the aisle to I Do (Cherish You) by 98*. We will have a special reception dance to Whatta Man by Salt N’ Pepa. The rest will just be love songs, dance songs etc. 90’s music is my favorite!

Ohhh I totally am going to rock out to Backstreet Boys and N Sync. Also am trying to convince Fiance to make our entrance song “Best Song Ever” by One Direction because I’m obsessed with them. Similarly, I’m absolutely obsessed with Bedroom Floor (Cash Cash remix) I jam so hard. Also are definitely playing Sweet Caroline because it was our college football song (and where we first met!). Probably throw some Dancing Queen in there too because who doesn’t want to jam to ABBA??
