Post your "Must Have" wedding songs

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! This is still a work in progress but here's the playlist I came up with so far. The majority of our guests are younger for our DW, but I incorporated some oldies in there too! I think by far the music was the hardest part of all the planning!!


Ceremony Songs


Seating of Guests (all Boyce Avenue)

Ho Hey

Just the Way You Are

You and Me

Only Girl (In The World)


A Thousand Years

Are people using wedding music apps (on an ipad)  to help organize song list? I've read about some in the past but for the life of me can't remember the names of them....
