We've decided on As Time Goes By by Dooley Wilson, the song from Casablanca which is one of our favourite movies. For the dance with our parents we'll use a Van Morrison song since we both grew up listening to him and have great memories of listening to his songs. We also saw him in concert for our one year anniversary at the Gorge in Washington which was amazing! Not sure what song yet, we're still deciding between a few.
We're still working on the rest of the songs too - what to play while everyone gets seated, the walk down the aisle song, ceremony music, dinner music and party time music. We're using our iPod so we're doing the music from the 5pm ceremony until 1am. We have a partial list put together but we need to sit down with a bottle of wine soon and sort out the rest. We have a mariachi for the cocktail hour so that's covered!
Oh, the First Dance....the bain of our existence. We are having a really hard time!
As fo the Father-Daughter, what is the etiquette for that? Do I choose, or does my Dad? If I had my way, I'd choose "God Only Knows" by The Beach Boys, because it reminds me of my childhood, being at the cottage with my parents I also originally wanted Jackie Wilson's "Higher & Higher", but it's just too fast, and I couldn't find a slooooower version to dance to ;-)
