Before you start hitting that search button, I know that there have been a few threads on this before. However, wedding music needs to include some brand spankin' new hits along with the golden oldies. Anyhow, auto is getting married in June and his one (ONE!) responsibility was to pick out the music by the end of March. Now it's due and I don't know if I have exactly what I need. I don't go to a lot of weddings so I'm not sure how the mix should be between different types of music.
I specifically am having trouble deciding on an appropriate first dance song, mom/son song and dad/daughter song.
I would like to stay away from some of the super cheesy songs you hear at a lot of weddings but I realize that you want people to have fun and dance as well. My initial thought to have exclusively Sigur Ros
tunes was shot down.
Anyhow, here is a list of contenders. Let me know what you think of these and please add more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
