How many songs do you need for a wedding?

Hi ladies!


I'm trying to start putting together our song list, and really have no idea how many songs we need! There's processional, recessional, first dance, etc...


How many songs did you have?


What were each of the songs, and what were they played during?

It all depends on what you want. We had seven, I think.

Professional, bride entrance, recessional, first dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss, and garter toss.

Others also include the parent dances.
