What do you have available to you music-wise? DJ or band? Instrumentalists/singers for the ceremony? That will make it easier to give suggestions.

Lol,I know how you feel! This is what I am doing- I looked at all the music on my computer (my favourites) and I am going to tell my Fiance to do the same and compile a list of all the music we would like to feature in the wedding. Obviosly the Bride walking into the church needs a special song and also the first dance. I have also asked some of my friends to start making lists of songs they would like to dance to, I will then combine the lists and thats that! You need to think about the vibe of each of these categories

  • Prelude Music- probably something toned down, such as classical music or more popular such as Enya
  • Bridal Party- A song for when they enter the ceremony
  • Bride- your walk in song
  • Recessional- I am going to do the same vibe as prelude
  • Cocktail Hour- Background music, but more upbeat that prelude
  • First dance- Special song you can dance on
  • Cake cutting- I am using a song with sweet in it- thinking of U2’s sweetest thing, or Sweets for my sweet.
  • Father/daughter, Mother/son dance- Something special- maby something like Butterfly Kisses for the father/daugther dance
  • Reception Music- I divided my list into Slow dance and ‘Club’ dance, here I would like to use the latest dance music and also a few oldies!

Hope it helps you, I am still working on my playlist, but I will post it for you when its more complete.
