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!
Ahh this has totally been one of the hardest things for us to decide. some of the songs that we have been contemplating so far (but have no idea where yet) are....
Your Song - elton john
harvest moon - neil young
crazy love - van morrison
whistle for the choir - the fratellis
offering - the avett brothers
forever young - either bob dylan or the band version (this would obviously be father/daughter mother/son dance)
thousand years - christina perri ( i hate twilight but love this song so its been a love/hate relationship lol )
unchained melody - probably willie nelson version
indian summer - the doors
