      Walking After You by the Foo Fighters
      Question by the Old 97s (the song I'm walking down the aisle to)
      Just Like Heaven (the Dinosaur Jr. version)
      Mr. Blue Sky by ELO
      I Summon You by Spoon (I LOVE THIS SONG)
      New Slang by the Shins
      Your Star Will Shine by the Stone Roses
      Lucha de Gigantes by Nacha Pop (I think all you mexico weddings should include this one. It's gorgeous)
      Big Blue Sun by Adrian Belew
      Everlong by Foo Fighters
      Mexican Wine by Fountains of Wayne
      You Were Right by Badly Drawn Boy
      Afterglow by Travis

      Two of Us (Aimee Mann/Michael Penn version)

      I'm going to have to download all of these songs I don't have. The ones i know, I love. So i will probably like all the rest. I think such greats heights is a great song to play after the wedding.

        Okay girls, I must know how you all know such wonderful diverse music. I have to admit that I am clueless about most of these songs!! I feel so dumb. Is there a website I can go on to hear samples? I am sure I would like to use some of these songs especially the Spanish/Mexican ones.

        Ann,
        Did you ever get a chance to ask your guests how they liked the Mexican Trio you hired? I am 90% I will hire them which means I wouldn't have to download that much Mexican music. I'd have the authentic version!!
        Any Las Caletas bride know how much music I should plan on having for the dinner and reception? I assume the Trio doesn't play during dinner but I'm not so sure!

        Thanks

          We're music freaks so we have a huge library at home. To hear samples, besides the illegal download thing, you can go to sites that sell music and hear like 20 second samples (i.e. towerrecords.com, amazon.com, etc).

          There is a fairly accurate timeline provided when you sign your contract, have you done that yet? It says the start and end time of each segment of the wedding/reception. That's what I based ours off of. If you didn't get that ask them or I can pull mine out and tell you what they told us if you need it.

            Well I did put my deposit down but I didn't get a timeline of events. Nicole is on vacation this month, but I will have to ask her about that. If you don't mind sending me yours, that would be great. You can PM me if you'd like.
            Thank you!!

              I haven't decided on my wedding music, but I did recently make a CD of love songs for a CD club I'm in. The way the CD cllub works is there are about 12 of us in it. You make a mixed CD on your month & give it to all 12 members. Its great because you are always hearing new music & learning more about your friends. We go all out with making liner notes, etc. Here are the love songs from my CD. I was trying to find some more alternative, non traditional love songs. Then there are some standards on it too.

              1.Scissor Sisters- Might tell you tonight
              2.Third Eye Blind – I want you
              3.U2- She moves in mysterious ways
              4.Beck- Everybody’s got to learn sometime
              5.Sade- By your side
              6.Nil Lara- Fighting for my love
              7.Paul McCartney- Maybe I’m amazed
              8.Dave Matthews and Santana- Love of my life
              9.Counting Crows- Colorblind
              10.Blue October- Calling you
              11.Neil Young- Harvest moon
              12.Flickerstick- Beautiful
              13.Coldplay- The scientist
              14.Chris Isaak- Wicked game
              15.U2- The sweetest thing
              16.Live- I alone
              17.Incubus- Stellar
              18.The Verve- Sonnet

              1.Deftones- No ordinary love
              2.Dave Matthews Band- Crush
              3.The Cure- Love song
              4.Beatles- And I love her
              5.Sting- Every little thing she does is magic
              6.They Might Be Giants- She’s an angel
              7.U2- With or without you
              8.Violent Femmes- Good feeling
              9.Barenaked Ladies- Call and Answer
              10.Incubus- Echo
              11.David Gray- Be mine
              12.The Coral- Dreaming of you
              13.Justin Timberlake- Like I love you
              14.The Pretenders- I’ll stand by you
              15.Garbage- I would die for you
              16.Cheap Trick- I want you to want me
              17.REM- The one I love
              18.David Gray- This year’s love

                  I'm still very much working on our list ... but aside from our first dance and the mother & father songs ... our slow songs are going to be the wedding songs of all of our married guests. We have about 20 couples coming and 2 are celebrating either 10 or 40 year anniversaries during our trip. I thought that would be a nice way to show our appreciation for them coming, by finding out their first dance songs and acknowledging them when it starts to play.

                      I love this idea!!! Several of our guests are celebrating anniversaries during the trip too. Hopefully I like their songs, too :)
