i haven't got this all nutted out just yet but so far this is the bones of my and H2B's ideas:

Bridal Entrance:
Acoustic/Strings version of 'Polaris' by Jimmy Eat World

Register Signing
'The Luckiest' by Ben Folds

Reception Entrance
'Yoshimi Battles Pink Robots' by The Flaming Lips

First Dance
'Such Great Heights' by Iron and Wine

Music choices have definately been my most difficult so far!

Ms tash - I love your choices! H2B and I are also both quite musical and it's lovely to see music choices that are not the standards. Yay! smile.gif

I don't know that Gorecki piece but I am going to check it out!

Currently in the process of organising the music now... fun and games.. It has been somewhat of a challenge trying to explain to my fiance that although, Butterfly Effect, Cog, Artic Monkeys, Tool ec etc are fantastic bands and yes we love the music...not so sure its exactly wedding (lets party) music. blush.gif
Compromise is a big part of the equation at this point.

So far....
Pre Processional - Differently the Donavon Frankenreiter
Someone Like You Van Morrison
Better Together Jack Johnson

Processional - At Last Etta James

Signing - Angel

so far we have choosen;

walk down the aisle- Decoder Ring "in my heart"
signing- Sufjan Stevens "seven swans"
announcement- The cure "Friday i'm in love"
after- the theme from "out of AFrica"

then we are having a jazz band for 2 hours for cocktails

1st dance- Frank Sinatra "the way you look tonight" (i think)

then we are doing an IPOD mix of Jazz/blues and old classics

Does anyone plan to have the traditions wedding song for walking down the aisle... you know ... derr derr de derrrrrrr ??

I remember playing weddings when I was a little girl with a bed sheet for a dress ad a tea towl or lacey table cloth on my head and walking down the aisle with that playing in my head so I think it might be nice to have it for real wub.gif

anyone else do that when they were young?
