Wedding Music

I think the music is what makes or breaks a wedding. I know this isn't applicable for everyone, but it is for me because I LOVE to dance. I'm not good at it at all, but once I get a couple of drinks in me I'm magnetically drawn to the dance floor. I'm actually really excited that we're using my ipod instead of a DJ. I already have a lot of fun music on it from my marathon training (another event that music can either make or break), I like that I'm in control of when the songs will be played, and I like that nobody will be able to request the chicken dance. I think music is also really important for the ceremony/first dance because these are the songs that will take you back to the big day for years to follow. So here's what I have in mind for our wedding:

  • The wedding party will walk down the aisle to: Better Together by Jack Johnson
  • I will walk down the aisle to: a guitar only version of Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles
  • Jake and I will walk back down the aisle as husband & wife to: Keep on Loving You by REO Speedwagon

***I realize the ceremony music is completely random, but these songs are perfect for us***

  • Music for cockail/appetizers/dinner: mixture of Jason Mraz, Jack Johnson & The Rocket Summer (Melanie and my sister are probably the only people who have heard of The Rocket Summer, but trust me, he's great)
  • First dance: Moment of Truth by FM Static
  • Reception Music: mixture of oldies, 80's, 90's and some current songs, with a few country songs thrown in
I currently have about 3 hours of reception music, but I want to have about another hour just to be on the safe side. Any suggestions for some fun dancing songs??
