One day during my daily wedding blog perusing I happened across this incredibly helpful article. I ended up taking quite a few pieces of advice from this entry. I broke my playlists down into sections; Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, Dinner, and Dancing. Breaking up the playlists made the task of preparing them less daunting and way more organized. I searched around the internet for new and fun wedding playlists that didn’t include “Kung Fu Fighting” [sorry, not my thing!]. Because I am an internet ninja I found this AMAZING article that provides 175 unique, fun and upbeat wedding song suggestions! I immediately got my downloading pants on, and tore through the list.
We are now down to crunch time in the timeline of our wedding, so we really should have all the music figured out by now, however we aren’t perfect. I will provide you with a sampling of our playlists!
Processional: Something by Vitamin String Quartet, they are amazing!
Recessional: “You Are The Best Thing” – Ray LaMontagne
“Your Love Gets Sweeter” – Finley Quaye
“Sweet Darlin’” – She & Him
“You and I” – Ingrid Michaelson
“All I Do Is Dream of You” – Michael BubleDinner
This is actually to be determined, because I cannot decide what to do! I can’t decide if we should stick solely to instrumentals, or even just one artist? We will see!
There it is! A smattering of styles that I’m hoping come together nicely. We’ve convinced one of our dear friends to be the MC and man the iPod, so we’re hoping all goes smoothly.
Anyone else opting for an iPod wedding?
