    We had our DJ cover our ceremony too. For prelude and postlude music, we didn't give him specific songs to play. We just asked him to play instrumental versions of pop songs. All ceremony songs were instrumental versions as well.

    Bridal Party Processional - Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
    Bridal Entrance - I Will Be Here
    Filipino Traditions - How Beautiful
    Unity Candle (Solo) - Grow Old With Me
    Recessional - Concerto in D

    For the cocktail hour and dinner, he played coffehouse-type music.

    Parents / Godparents Entrance - Sinatra
    Bridal Party Entrance - deadmau5
    Our Entrance - Without You by David Guetta featuring Usher
    Cake Cutting - You're the First, the Last, My Everything by Josh Radin
    First Dance - At My Most Beautiful by R.E.M.
    Father/Daughter and Mother/Son Dance - What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
  • Cake cutting: "Love You Madly" by Cake
    First dance: "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds
    F/D dance: "Father and Daughter" by Paul Simon
    M/S dance: "It's a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong
    Garter retrieval: "Hot for Teacher" by Van Halen (I'm a teacher)
    Garter toss: "Sexy Back" by Justin Timberlake
    Bouquet toss: "I Know What Boys Like" by the Waitresses
    Last dance: "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond

  • The only thing that I have set in stone is that I'm dancing with my dad to "You Are My Sunshine."  he used to sing that to me when I was little.  Actually, my fiance and I are musicians so I'm considering recording a special version of us doing it for my dad.

    Other songs I'm considering:

    Processional - Canon, Butterfly Waltz, or (as something different) and instrumental version of Turning Page by Sleeping at Last

    First Dance - We will probably go with Stacks by Bon Iver, it's "our song." I also like Ingrid Michaelson's cover of I Can't Help Falling in Love.

    Groom and MOG dance - My Girl

    I'm going to see if the DJ can just play pretty instrumental music of some sort during toasts and stuff.
