    Solo at the church to be sung by a long time friend and bridesmaid during the sand ceremony:  The Hawaiian Wedding Song

     Our Intro to the reception:  So Happy Together by the Turtles with the lyrics  (this song will also be played on the organ as we leave the church)

    Bridal Party & Parents Intro:  TBD

     Cake Cutting Song :  I got you babe by Sonny and Cher

     Bouquet Toss:  Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

     Garter Removal:  Keep your Hands to yourself by the Georgia Satelites  (FI picked this)

     Our First Dance Song:  Cross my Heart by George Strait  (we will be doing the foxtrot, rumba and then back to foxtrot in this song)

     Father/Daughter Dance Song:  Daddy’s Angel by T. Carter  (one of my co-workers gave me the idea to let my dad pick the song.  I originally was going to pick the song but my dad liked that I asked him to pick it.  He searched a lot of songs and found this one and cried.  My parents are taking ballroom dancing lessons with us so we will be doing one of the dances together).

    My Parent’s Song:  My Love by Paul McCartney & Wings
