    Hi Beautiful Brides

     

    We are finally getting our song list together. Music is super duper important to me, but I sorta always knew that I would insert some of my favorite romantic songs into my wedding somehow. Here's my ceremony music program:

     

    Prelude:

    "Kiss the Rain" by Yiruma - performed on the piano by my brother

    "Leaves on the Seine" by David Lanz - performed on the piano by my brother

     

    Bridesmaids & Ringbearer's Procession:

    "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones

     

    Bride's Entrance:

    "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" cover by Leona Lewis

    (I prefer Roberta Flack, but the instrumental in Leona's version flows really nicely right after Come Away With Me.)

     

    Sand Ceremony:

    "Mariage d'Amour" by Richard Clayderman performed on the piano by my brother

     

    Couple's Exit:

    "Ho Hey!" by Lumineers

     

    First Dance:

    "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele

     

    Dance with the Parents:

    ????? Any suggestions?????

     

    What are your picks for your wedding?? Please share!! :)

     

    xoxo,

    J

      There is a place with all kinds of discussion like this under Wedding Entertainment and Music.

      Try this thread:

      http://www.bestdesti...entire-playlist

       

      Or this one:

      http://www.bestdesti...e-wedding-songs

       

      There are lots of good ideas! That is my month's to-do as well.

       

      So far:

      Prelude:

      TWO of the following:

      Til There Was You (Beatles)

      God Only Knows (Beach Boys)

      Somebody's Getting Married (Muppets)

      I Wanna Grow Old With You (Adam Sandler)

       

      Groom, Best Man, Parents, Maid of Honour:

      Somewhere Over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World (Israel Kamikowe)

       

      Bride's Procession: Kiss the Girl (instrumental version on acoustic guitar, performed by my brother)

       

      Recessional: We Go Together (from Grease)

       

      First Dance: Hey Soul Sister (Train)

       

      Parent Dance: The Rainbow Connection (Kermit the Frog! Not sure if that is the version we will use or not)

       

      We have songs also chosen for our AHR, where we will do the garter removal and toss (either Cherry Pie or Let's Get It On), bouquet toss (I think Girls Just Wanna Have Fun), cake cutting (Pour Some Sugar on Me or Sugar Sugar), and a reception entrance (either Marry You by Bruno Mars or What I Like About You by the Romantiks). We will also have a slide show (I Say a Little Prayer, from My Best Friend's Wedding, and So This is Love, from Cinderella), video (songs yet to be decided - so far For Those About To Rock (AC/DC) for the boys, Unforgettable for romantic pictures, and Can't Help Falling in Love, by Elvis. We need to pick a few more)

       

      So hopefully that helps. We are also doing all the music for the dancing on the beach; my future father in law is taking care of that though.

       

      So yeah. There are my picks. I definitely recommend checking out the music section though - there is lots there!

          I think I found the perfect song to dance to with my stepdad and can't believe I didn't think of it before! "Daughters" by John Mayer is super sweet :)

            I love your first dance song! I love Train. I think their "Marry Me" would be sooo beautiful for the bridal procession.

              Yes, I saw and have heard of a few weddings with Marry Me for a processional song. Actually, the day after FI proposed we were on a beach in Mexico and the bridal processional was that song. So lovely.

               

              I wanted a slow song for our first dance, but I made the mistake of asking FI's opinion... Then he said he liked this song, and I said I do too... so he said, yes, yes, that is our first dance song. He has been working on convincing me, and now I like it. I think we are going to go a little bit of a swing dance with it.

                Lol I actually wanted an upbeat song and FI wanted a slow song so we're going with adele. :) Swing dance would be so fun! I was afraid of putting our guests to sleep with such a slow song. Hmm.... Maybe gotta keep looking
