Every time I try to start I end up running in the opposit direction, LOL!!
It seems like a lot of people are thinking Sinatra and that style for dinner, but even though I don't want "party" music I wanted something upbeat so people would be tapping their feet under the table and ready to get groving after dinner. What are you plans?
I'm starting to compile my lists. Have the ceremony pretty much sorted. Cocktail hour and dinner music lists are half done - need fiance's input and some of his music. For dinner, I really would prefer to put in mostly spanish guitar music, new flamenco, and things like that -- songs that are upbeat, have few words, but keep people on the track to groove. Not sure if I have enough to fill up my dinner playlist. But I'm also waiting to get fiance's input and some of his music since all this is being done through my music alone for now. I'm sure my parents won't really enjoy a lot of my music so I'll put some slower, "calmer" songs in for their benefit. Heh heh. But my priority is to keep the upbeat tone starting with cocktail hour and make it feel like a party!
UMM yes this is the main thing left on our to-do list that we keep avoiding. Our music is all over the place (between 3 computers, some work, some personal). So we have to go through and figure out which songs we have on what computer, which songs we have to download, etc.
It's too bad the DJs there don't have a music library like the US / Canadian DJs.. Ah the joys of DWs ;-)
Just curious - what are you guys doing for gifts for the GMs and parents...??
We don't have any groomsmen so we just decided to get our mothers some nice jewelry from Swarovski. Still thinking about our fathers.
