Post your "Must Have" wedding songs

Recommended Posts

okay, I just posted my songlist for Julie in another thread and figured maybe I should post here too. I'm not quite done, I need more songs from "todays" music, right now I just have a lot of classic wedding songs, but I don't listen to a lot of dance type music, so if anyone has some suggestions for me I'd love to hear it. These are in random order and yes, I have a TON of songs, I'm sure we won't even listen to a lot of these, but better safe than sorry, right!?

 

Pre - ceremony

we are playing mexican music, I downloaded from itunes (if you want to know which music just pm me, but the titles are spanish and it will take me forever to type!)

 

Me Down the aisle

Bittersweet Symphony (Instrumental)

 

Together back down the aisle

I'm a Believer - Smash Mouth

 

Cocktail hour

we have a mariachi trio

 

Our song

Bless the Broken Road - Rascal Flatts

 

Dance with my dad

My Little Girl - Tim McGraw

 

Cake Cutting:

Tequila

 

Dinner Music

we wanted the dinner music to just be songs we loved, but that wouldn't be good dancing songs or that we didn't have room for in the playlist.

I have noticed that not one of you guys have one of the biggest party songs around. So, I am guessing its not big in the US. I will without a doubt have Home For A Rest by Spirit of the West on my playlist. It always gets the party started because everyone gets on the dance floor for this song. If you don't know it you should check it out. Just a thought.

 

I am so far behind, I am just looking through all these threads now trying to get something together. Wish me luck. lol

Here are my "must haves"

 

Brown Eyed girl- Requested by my sis and ma

Margaritaville- Jimmy Buffet (of course)

Shout!

Sweet Caroline- Neil Diamond (our "friends" theme song)

Runaround Sue- It's just a fun oldie

The lion sleeps tonight- for my Uncle

God only knows- The Beach Boys

Red, Red Wine- UB40

I can't help myself ("Sugar pie honey bunch")

 

 

That's all for now. I have so many favorites, it is hard for me to choose. I have to throw in some newer songs, but I have too many to pick from right now.. I will updated as I get closer to the DW.
