    I should 1st say the ceremony is on the beach with about 46 people. These are the songs we have chosen

    Songs playing in a loop while the guests take their seats for the Ceremony:

    Lullaby - Bond
    All you need is love - Vitamin String Quartet
    Bitter Sweet Symphony - Vitamin String Quartet
    Snow ( Hey Yo) - Vitamin String Quartet
    Here comes the sun - Beatles
    I can See Clearly now - Johhny Nash
    Send me on my way - Rusted Root
    Man in Motion - St. Elmos Fire Soundtrack

    Bride maid, flower girl, ring bearer walking down the aisle:

    You're So Cool - Dan Head (from the movie True romance)

    Wife walking down the aisle:

    Somewhere over the Rainbow - Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

    After we say I DO and turn to face the crowd:

    One Love - Bob Marley

    Our introduction and entrance into the reception as husband and wife for the first time:

    I'm shipping up to Boston - Drop kick Murphy's ( from the movie Departed ) I'm from Boston. Can't believe the FI agreed to this one :)

    We still may do: Right here, Right now - Fatboy Slim

    First Dance:

    Better Together - Jack Johnson

    Mother / Son dance:

              This took A LOT longer than I ever thought it would. Probably the most stressful thing of everything I've done.

              Figured if I could save one person the stress it was worth the trouble.

                      I've started my list but as you said, it's difficult since you not only have to think of the setting and your preferences, but also about it fitting with the whole theme and hopefully not having any depressing or dark lyrics. Mixing styles is also quite difficult.. Thanks for sharing!!!
