    Okay, so I am starting my lists of songs, and I noticed a bride on another thread had a list of "Getting Ready" songs. I was planning on making a CD (or a playlist, if I get a new iPod!) of really upbeat wedding or love related songs, to listen to throughout planning closer to the date as well as for getting ready. I started a list, and thought I would share it with all of you lovely ladies! Plus, if you have any other suggestions, please feel free to add!

              Thanks - Me too. I was thinking I would save it for the day, but I think now I will make a CD to listen to for getting ready and also use it to listen to while DIY ing.

                  Hello Peach

                   

                  I love this thread because my Grandmother recently got married (2 weekends ago). As the eldest grandchild and because my boyfriend is an audio engineer, we were in charge of putting together her wedding music. It was a challenge to put together music that was appropriate for a group that ranged in age from 5 years old to 70+, but it was also a lot of fun!! I know you want "getting ready music" but hopefully some of the songs we used for dancing could work for you to get ready...

                   

                  Ice Cream - Sarah McClaughlin (excuse the spelling)

                  Anything by Rod Stewart - the way you look tonight, the rhythm of my heart

                  Free Falling - Tom Petty

                  Most UB40 songs

                  Bob Marley - stir it up, is this love

                  Van Morrison - Crazy Love, brown eyed girl

                  B52 - Love Shack

                  Prince- kiss, raspberry burret

                   

                  There was tons more that I cannot remember off the top of my head, but hopefully that gets the ball rolling a little more. :)

                   

                  Sorry if some of it isn't your taste just jotting out stuff I could remember.

                   

                  Have fun building your playlist!!
