So im torn between songs and im being indecisive as well!!!! I was wondering what you ladies used or will be using for your big day!!! This is what i have so far...


Wedding Party processional- Apacolyptica "nothing eles matters"


Bride's Entrance/Walk down the isle- I really like  Death Cab for Cutie "I will follow you into the dark" its depressing but we both love it LOL..kinda weird


Recessional- I want something up beat to set the mood! but not sure.


Reception Entrance Song(s)- Bridal party: im undecided, for us im using "Right here in my arms" by HIM


Cake cutting-??????????


Boquet Toss- "Maneater" by nellie furtatdo, or


Garter Toss- "Run to the hills" by iron maiden or "Hard to handle" by the black crows


Garter Removal- "Closer" by nine inch nails

Loving the music! I always go to the Beatles for upbeat, maybe "when I'm 64" for the recessional? I went with a lot of classic rock to even it out, honestly.hubby required that for the last dance we did "save the last dance for me"... For the cake cutting... I honestly can't remember, it may have been ain't that a kick in the head, though. Hubby wanted some of the classics as an homage to fallout 3 and fallout new Vegas, lol.

OMG YES! I love your music choices!


I walked down to the Deftones, "Change".


For my recessional, I did Canon in D Rock. It was seemingly traditional and BOOM electric guitar and super upbeat.

My music taste is way different than yours. FI and I don't even have the same music taste so picking music was sooooo hard for us.


** All ceremony music played/sung by acoustic guitarist. 


Wedding Party Processional: "You Are The Best Thing" Ray LaMontague **
Brides Entrance: "Forever" Ben Harper ** (possibly "To Make You Feel My Love")
Recessional: "You Make My Dreams Come True" Hall & Oates **



Introduction: "Home" Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
First Dance: "Stand By Me" Ben E King
Cake Cutting: Not sure.... FI wants "Ho Hey" The Lumineers (but I think it's an ill fit because it's not a love song) I've considered "She's No Lady" Lyle Lovett because I love tounge and cheek but I don't want to offend his parents :)
Bouquet Toss: ????
Garter Toss: "Sharp Dressed Man" ZZ Top
Last Dance: ????

I'm stuck trying to decide what song for bouquet toss and I found two that I love... One is Move B!tch by Ludacris (we might use clean but otherwise I don't care) or Wannabe by Spice Girls... Ugh I suck at decisions!

I believe we're doing Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith(?) I made FI pick b/c I knew if I did I'd get that look like "are you kidding me" lol only problem was actually getting him to do it lol With less than a week til the AHR (AHHHH!!) We still have his mom/son dance and dollar dance to pick. Ugh! lol I'd make him pick if he's going to be picky.. Silly boys think this is easy!? lol

I'm not familiar with most of those songs because my music taste is a bit different. I'm afraid I won't be of much help. What helped for us is I would go through and choose my favorite songs for each thing and then play them for FI. He's pickier than I am so it was easier to narrow it down with him. And once you decide on a song move on, don't second guess it. We spent hours one day going over the music. It's crazy.

Are you doing music for seating of the grandparents and parents? If so what are you doing, I'm stumped on this one.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time on music. I feel your pain!


For our cake cutting we used "Lips Like Sugar" by Echo & The Bunnymen and for our grand entrance we used "Viva Las Vegas" by Vince Neil of Motley Crue (we did a vintage Vegas themed wedding). :)


I'm trying to think of ideas for you. Are you a Manson fan at all? If so, you could use "Sweet Dreams" for cake cutting. Of course, there's also the ever popular "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard.
