April 2013 Weddings


Have you guys picked out which songs you want (processional, recessional, father-daughter dance etc.)?  I had no idea what a daunting task this was going to be..all the way down to the cake cutting song!  I'd love you hear some of your ideas!

    processional, recessional - I don't even know what these mean! :)  I just told the DJ I want to walk to Here Comes The Bride, the rest he can pick something appropriate for.

    father-daughter dance - Landslide by Fleetwood Mac
    mother-son dance - Mama by Boyz II Men
    Cake cutting - Tonight is the Night by Outtasight

    Only a few songs are important to me, we are letting the DJ take control of most of it.  People probably wouldn't really dance to the music I would pick anyway LOL

    For the ceremony I have a pianst playing all intstrumental versions
    Processional: Ordinary Miracle - Sarah McLaughlin

    Bride's Processional - I see the Light - From the Disney movie Tangled - My 4 year old is walking me down the aisle and so this had her influence, however the piano version is very pretty and I'm actually kind of excited about it.

    Unity Candle - I won't give up - Jason Mraz

    Recessional - Love is all you need - Beatles

    We don't really have most of the typical dances for the reception but for our Anniversary dance we are doing Then by Brad Paisley and we are going to do a dance to I knew the Bride when she use to rock and roll.

    Processional- One Direction What Makes You Beautiful Cover

    Processional: "Spring" Four Seasons (theme of the wedding is spring garden so I thought it would be perfect); then when I walk down the aisle it will be to "Here Comes the Bride"
    Recessional - Wedding March from Midsummer's Night Dream (traditional but I love it)

    First Dance: I Swear, John Michael Montgomery
    Father-daughter: Turn Around, Kenny Loggins (my mom and her dad danced to the same song)
    Mother-daughter: I Hope You Dance, Leean Walmack. It was either this or In My Daughter's Eyes, but I Hope You Dance has more meaning to us
    Mother-son: Can't Help Falling In Love With You, Elvis. This song is so special to FMIL because she used to sing FI to sleep with it when he was a baby.

    No clue what we're doing for the cake, so I'll leave that up to the DJ. Bouquet toss will be Single Ladies, Beyonce, and I have no clue what song to use for the garter toss so leaving that up to the DJ as well.

    Our ceremony is a full Catholic mass, so I'm not sure everyone will be interested in all of that, but I am walking into Canon in D.  We are walking out to Morning has Broken.

    For the reception, we are having everyone walk in to Marry You by Bruno Mars. 

    Our first dance is Fools Rush In (Can't Help Falling in Love) - Elvis

    Father Daughter dance is My Little Girl by Tim McGraw and Mother Son dance is Gospeed (Sweet Dreams) by the Dixie Chicks.

    Cake cutting is When I'm 64 by the Beatles. 

    And our last song is The Best Is Yet to Come by Frank SInatra!

    Prelude: Sheep My Safely Graze, Bach
    Parents/Grandparents Seating: Ave Maria, Schubert
    Bridal Party Processional: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Bach
    Bride's Processional: Canon in D, Pachelbel
    Recessional: The Throne Room, John Williams
    Introductions: White Wedding, Billy Idol
    First Dance: Faithfully, Journey
    Stepfather-Daughter Dance: Simple Man, Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Mother-Son Dance: You Are The Sunshine Of My Life, Stevie Wonder (?)
    Cake-cutting Song: Thriller, Michael Jackson

    FI can't decide on a song, and keeps trying to make FMIL pick it. She will, but I think she'd rather he do it. He's being lazy, so I need to get him to make a decision ASAP.

    The cake-cutting song is a long story. We're planning to learn the entire Thriller dance and do it right after our cake-cutting. He might spin something else during the cutting itself, I don't know--but the intro to the song is really long, so we can always just use that. 

    ETA: Totally forgot about the BP introductions! FI and I are crazy excited about using the Billy Idol song (it's one of my faves).

    I'm not picky about the music but I didn't want "traditional". So here's my list:

    Guys processional (FI wanted one)- Pumped Up Kicks- Foster the People
    Girls processional- Somebody That I Used to Know- Gotye
    Bride- Sail- AWOL Nation
    Recessional- I Hope You Die- Bloodhound Gang (these are all instrumental version NO LYRICS!)
    Bridal Party introduction- Sandstorm- Da Rude
    Bride & Groom Intro- Bruins Goal Song
    First Dance- still haven't decided
    Father/Daughter- Andy Williams
    Mother/Son- In My Life- Beatles

    I don't care about the cake cutting songs and all that.
