Time crunch

Somehow I thought I had more time to decide this, but I have to send my playlist to our ceremony musicians this weekend and I need to pick 3 songs.

1) for the bride's entrance
2) for a song to play while we light the unity candle and take communion (short)
3) for the recessional

I don't want any classical music and the song will be played by 2 acoustic guitarists. The wedding party will be walking in to Jose Gonzales's heartbeats.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Or bands to listen to that might help me get inspired?

    I was at a wedding recently where they played "Crazy Love"  it was super tear jerking.

    Dang it; fi is at rehearsal right now.  This is right up his alley, but he won't be home until late.  I know that the Great American Songbook is full of jazz standards that would sound lovely on the acoustic guitar.   Django Reinhart's music is amazing, but that may not be what you're looking for (gypsy jazz).

    Are you having a Catholic mass? If so you probably need all religious songs. Don't quote me on that, but I have to use all religious/classical songs for my wedding.

     I don't have any advice on songs. Sorry and good luck!
