    I know there are tons of posts about music during the ceremony and certain parts of the reception. But I am no getting a marichi band for cocktail hour (due to the expense, not that I wouldnt LOVE one). But I have to make a playlist of my own music but dont know what... Anyone have any suggestions. I dont want too slow or music you would necessarliy break out a dance move with. haha
    I like all kinds of music, and suggestions?

      I am currently working on my playlist.

      I copied into MS Word lots of the playlists posted on here and am weeding through those as I put mine together, picking what I like and adding it to my playlist.

      Here's the lists I copied, but I'd look in the music thread and see for yourself too b/c there are tons more I didn't get to put on here.

          I am not sure if this insterests you at all, but for dinner music we used these cd's Rockabye Baby! - Transform your favorite rock music into baby music.

          Our guests loved them, they kept trying to guess the band and song name. It was fun and still let people talk and listen to songs they liked, just differently.

          Some might think its a terrible idea, but we loved it and so did our guests, so I thought I should post it in case someone else thinks its as great as well did.

          We had Tool (one of my fave bands), Metallica, U2, Cold Play, Nirvana and Beatles. We wanted Nine Inch Nails but could not find it in the stores near us.

              What a great idea. I can see where this could be a lullaby, but then again. You can take musci everyone knows and make the music more intimate Love it! Thanks a bunch!

                      Thanks, we bought them for the wedding and now my niece is using them for her "night night music" and she loves them and we all sing along to the monitor, its pretty funny.
