    7.    Neutral Milk Hotel - “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea”
    8.    The Sundays - "Wild Horses"
    9.    Feist - "Sacred Heart"
    10.    Stars - "The First Five Times"
    11.    Caribou - "Crayon"

    14.    The Beatles - "Here Comes The Sun"
    15.    Ride - "So Fine"
    16.    The 6ths & Katharine Whalen - "You You You You You"
    17.    Frou Frou - "It's Good to Be in Love"

Heheh... we're video game nerds. Allow me to explain the significance: this is the victory song after you defeat an enemy in the game. Marriage is like achieving a victory!

Haven't totally locked it all up yet!  But here's what I'm thinking



  • Processional for everybody but me - Falling Slowly by Glen Hansard - piano instrumental

  • Bridal Chorus - want to see if my pianist can play with it and make it a little more jazzy

  • During - we're doing a "wishing well' where the parents will put a flower in a pond signifying a wish for our future together - during this my sister (my MOH) who is a broadway actress will sing "A Quiet Thing" (lyrics are below...so beautiful!)

  • Recessional - not sure yet, but thinking my piano player can play "Let's Call the Whole Thing off" - I'm American and FI is Australian and I really do say "tom-ay-to" and he really does say "tom-ah-to" so I just thought it might be a cute, fun way to leave :)


Quiet Thing lyrics - basically about how love is an intimate thing, not about the bells and whistles


When it all come true
Just the way you planned
It's funny but the bells don't ring
It's a quiet thing
When you hold the world
In your trembling hand
You think you'd hear a choir singing
But it's a quiet thing
There are no exploding fire works
Where's the roaring of the crowd
Maybe it's the strange new atmosphere
Way up here among the clouds

Happiness comes in on tiptoe
Well, what do you know
It's a quiet thing
A very quiet thing...

I love everyone's lists! I confess I'm worried that for some reason we won't be allowed to do anything "modern"... I don't know why I think that, though!

2dbride: Very interesting list! What part of Bach's Cantata 156 did you use (surely it wasn't the whole thing)?

ours is totally off the beaten path. we've hired a new world flamenco guitarist and composer (tomas michaud) and he will be performing his own compositions for our ceremony. 


bridal party procession - the last tear drop


my entrance - beloved


recessional - light of my life


all of the sound clips for the above can be found here at this link: http://www.worldmelodies.com/WeddingMusic.htm


during the ceremony, FI's sister is singing "to make you feel my love" and he will accompany her.


then, after the ceremony, he'll play at our outdoor cocktail reception. he's so easy to work with and so talented. i'm really excited as it is a little different and very artistic.

Wildfire29, I LOVE Ashokan Farewell, it was the first song I learned to play on the fiddle and still my favorite :D


I'm having a friend of ours who is AMAZEING at fiddle play our music, I told him pre-ceremony to just play whatever pretty bluegrass comes to mind. For the bridal party, It'll probably be Shennendoah or Ashokan Farewell, for ME it will be "One Woman" by Randy Rodgers, but instrumental. It's a surprise for the FI shhhh :D
