Thanks for all your great ideas. This weekend we are picking our songs, to give to the reception next week, so this will help me heaps.

I will add my list when we select it.

I have finally selected my wedding songs!

Ceremony music
To be played by Solo Saxaphone and Double bass, no vocal

1. Processional - 'As Time Goes By' - the Casablanca theme song
2. Register signing - 'Danny Boy' - a fabulous jazz arrangement of a song that has a special meaning to my family
3. Recessional - 'Putin' on the Ritz' - totally funky and joyous song

To be played by 5 piece jazz band with male vocal

1. Entrance song - 'I get a kick out of you' - lovely jazz song
2. Bridal waltz - 'Fly me to the moon' - a foxtrot and 'OUR' song :-) LOL cool.gif
3. Last Dance - 'The way you look tonight' - another foxtrot (we only know one dance style!), but the most Beautiful lyrics and tune.

plus I love Brookes Idea of Love and marriage - Frank Sinatra for the cake cutting!

Final songs

New York New York and My Way the perfect party enders! I recommend to everyone to have these on their song list, parties go OFF when they come on! tongue.gif

I absolutely love this play list, What do you think? biggrin.gif

How bad is this - I can barely remember what we had! It was only 18 months ago ohmy.gif

Processional was Canon as well
Registry signing was Norah Jones (a couple of songs)
Recessional was The Beatles (she loves you) i am a huge beatles fan
I also had a mix of various Norah Jones, Beatles and various other songs for immediatley after the wedding

Our first dance was At Last. Everything else was just left up to the DJ and to be honest I can't remember what it was!

All subject to change at this stage, but ...

While guests are being seated, my friend will be playing flute (improvised)

Processional - Prelude from Cello Suite 1 in G - Bach

Signing register - MOH singing "Kissing You"

Recessional - Slide - Goo Goo Dolls

I'm sure I may need to squeeze a few more in somewhere!

First Dance - Lovecats - The Cure

We are having a five piece jazz band play at the reception, so lots of fun dancing!

Oh yeah, I nearly forgot, H2b's sis is a singer too and will sing something at the reception (maybe Alicia Keys - If I Ain't Got You)

This was by far my favourite part of organising our wedding! tongue.gif

We had:

Walking down isle - Canon in D
Exiting church - Feeler - Pete Murray (love that song!)[/I][/I]

Entering: Song 2 - Blur
Cake song: Even when im sleeping - Leonardo's Bride
Bridal Waltz: Tear us apart - INXS
2nd Song: Come to me - Diesel
3rd Song: Brown eyed girl - Van Morrison (i think the 3rd song is sooo important, gets everyone up on the dance floor)
Garter: Leave your hat on (bit cliche but a goodie)
Bouquet: Girls just wanna have fun - Cindy Lauper
Leaving: We go together - grease

Other faves were Time Warp, Thats Amore, Stuck in the middle with you.

Have fun organising!

Processional: Into My Arms - Nick Cave
Signing of the Register: She's the One - Robbie Williams
Recessional: Gamble Everything for Love - Ben Lee

Ceremony Entrance (everyone): Lets Get it Started - Black Eyed Peas
Last Song of the Night: Island in the Sun - Weezer

We haven't yet worked out songs for cutting the cake and so forth yet though.

Hi everyone, Im new to these forums blink.gif

i can't believe that so many people are using canon in their ceremony and "at last" by etta james as a main song at the reception.

i absolutely love these songs biggrin.gif

as for what i want for my wedding...i have no idea! and ive not got a lot of time left either!! unsure.gif

anyway, keep at it, im sure you'll all find what your looking for
take care, J.C.
