Songs for the reception

I know this has been asked a million times but what songs are you having for:-Bridal party entrance-Bride/Groom entrance-Cake cutting-First dance-Father/Daughter-Mother/SonThanks!  We're thinking Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen for our entrance but I think maybe we need something faster?

    you're welcome. as i noted, they were all sort of picked for a reason. nothing too deep, because they really don't play THAT long, but we definitely wanted to pick them and not just have our band decide :)

    Entrances: Our DJs reversed the order of the two songs.  I actually can't remember the song DH picked for the bridal party, but we were supposed to enter to the  beginning part of Bittersweet Symphony by The VerveCake Cutting: And Then He Kissed Me (old song that DH likes...it's also in the Adventures in Babysitting Movie)First Dance: Fields of Gold by StingFather/Daughter and Mother/Son (done as one dance): What a Wonderful World--the Izzie K version (one of my dad's favorite singers).I like your idea of Crazy Little thing Called Love  :)

    Bridal Party Entrance- Chris Brown Forever Bride and Groom- Hang on Sloopy (O-H-I-O) and we will be buckeyed out :) Cake Cutting- was going to be Adam Sandlers Grow old with you but we changed it to Lucky by Jason Mraz (as I think FI is singing me the Adam Sandler song, he has a history of serenading me very loudly in front of large groups of people) First Dance-Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd FI picked it, gotta love it for only that reason Father/Daughter- No dance Mother/Son, we will see We are also using Plain White tees 1,2,3,4 for the seating of grandmas and moms and lighting of unity candle at the ceremony :)

    -Bridal party entrance Me and my gang - Rascal Flatts -Bride/Groom entrance Would you go with me? - Josh Turner -Cake cutting This sounds ridiculous, but neither of us can remember. It was either "How Sweet it is to be loved by you" by James Taylor, or "Recipe for Makin' Love" by Harry Conick Jr. Beats the hell out of me. -First dance Lost in this moment - Big and Rich -Father/Daughter I actually don't know. It's a song my Dad picked out. -Mother/Son Couldn't tell ya. I know that sound sad, but I remember the really important ones, and the other ones just kind of fall into a little crevice in your mind. I remember everything else about the cake cutting but what music was playing. I remember the conversation I had with my Dad while we were dancing, but I can't even comprehend what song it was. This is what happens to you after you've been married for a bit. LOL
