Re: Songs

  • Hey! 
    I spoke to a DJ company in miami that offered the top 100 songs most played for all these. It was so helpful to find the ones i will use. The link he sent me was: http://www.bittonevents.com/most-requested-songs/ you select the list and it has amazing options. Good luck!

  • Thank you!! This looks like it will help out a lot :)
  • Here is what my plan is so far:

    Wedding Party Processional:  Seating of family is" Fools Rush In" (Ingrid Michaelson) and I think my bridal party is walking in to "I will be there for you" (Jessica Andrews)-- I almost was going to use My Wish or an acoustic cover of We Found Love, so I honestly go back and forth frequently

    Bride Processional: No doubt am walking to "Marry Me" from Train

    Recessional: My DJ is going to start playing "At Last" but then change it up to something fun, which we are not completely decided on yet. 

    Bridal Party Entrance:  Girls are walking in to "Girls Run The World" from Beyonce and the Guys are entering to "Suit & Tie" from JT

    Bride and Groom Entrance:  I think we are using "Yeah 3x" from Chris Brown

    First Dance: "Your Everything" from Keith Urban
    Father/Daughter: its a surprise to me, my dad is picking this

    Cake cutting: "Pour Some Sugar on Me"
    Garter removal: The DJ is doing a mix, but will start with "Sexy Back" from JT

    Bouquet toss: "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" Pat Benetar
    Last dance: Either "Time of Your Life" from Green Day or "Last Dance" from Donna Summer

    All our music was performed by a string trio. 

    Wedding Party Processional: Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles

    Bride's Entrance: In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel

    Recessional: Star Wars Throne Room

    Cake cutting: All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera

    We didn't have dancing; the trio played a variety of music at the reception from classical to modern pop. 


    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

  • Family seated: Towards the very end of the prelude, during (I hope) Shubert's Ave Maria.

    Processional (BM's and I are sharing the song): Trombone choir playing Pachebel Canon, that I'm arranging

    Recessional: We haven't decided, but it'll be something classical and fanfare-y.  Again, played by our trombone choir.

    WP Entrance: Probably nothing, but that may change

    B and G Entrance: 76 trombones, played by our trombone choir joined by a snare drum

    First Dance: "Can't Fight This Feeling" by REO Speedwagon
    Father-Daughter Dance: Most likely, "Cotton Jenny" by Gordon Lightfoot
    Mother-Son Dance: We don't know yet

    Cake Cutting: Stars and Stripes Forever

    Bouquet Toss: Still undecided, may go without music

    Last Dance: Undecided, because we don't know how our exit is going to work.  Options we've discussed are "Don't Stop Believing", "Time of my life" (Dirty Dancing) or "Forever Young".  Idk.

  • I posted all of these on the music stickie. Still not sure about 1st dance.  Not having a formal wedding party entry.  We're doing a couples' photo shoot for about a half hour between photos with family and entry.  I might or might not change my dress. I do feel we should have a certain song to come into the room, but I don't know how we'd possibly arrange this as our arrival is a bit uncertain based on this off-site photo shoot.

  • Iam looking for a song to use to dance with my stepsons. They are 19 (almost 20) and 12. They are so important to me but im just at a loss as to what song to use.
  • I presume you are open to a suggestion from a soon-to-be groom?  I was on here helping my fiancee with figuring out a couple of our still pending music needs which is something I was tasked with because of my training as a violinist. "Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd is a good and fairly "masculine" choice while having a good message (to be a decent, honest and forthright man as you go through your life).  It is what I am using for the dance with my mother. 

    To answer the rest of the questions: 
    CEREMONY
    Family seated:  UNDECIDED

    Entrance of the Groom and Groomsmen:  "March to the Scaffold" from "Symphonie Fantastique" by Hector Berlioz.  For those who don't get the joke/irony, a scaffold at the time the piece was written was the raised platform on which a guillotine was placed.  ;)

    Bridal Party Processional: UNDECIDED

    Bride Entrance: The Imperial March- John Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra

    Recessional: UNDECIDED

    RECEPTION

    Bride and Groom Entrance: Upon our return from the traditional Yihud (a Jewish tradition of the bride and groom getting 15 minutes to themselves after the ceremoney), we have not decided what to use....

    First Dance: "Lost in this Moment"- Big and Rich (I, as the groom, was given zero say on this one)

    Father/Daughter: Heartland - I loved her first  (which is a song my fiancee insisted upon even though I had never heard of it)

    Mother/Son: "Simple Man"- Lynyrd Skynyrd

    Cake cutting: I don't think we will be using music during this....

    Garter removal: UNDECIDED, in fact we never even thought of this

    Garter toss: UNDECIDED, in fact we never even thought of this

    Garter Placement: UNDECIDED, in fact we never even thought of this

    Bouquet toss: UNDECIDED, in fact we never even thought of this as something to have music for.

    Last dance: No clue....
