You would think picking your songs would be one of the easiest parts of planning a wedding, right?
At least, wrong when the groom’s pick of tunes includes hardcore, punk, and Dashboard Confessional, and the bride’s includes soul, R&B, and Usher. The typical compromise is folk music, the likes of Mumford, the Avett Brothers, and the Civil Wars. But, angsty, slow, banjo playing really just isn’t the business for wedding music.
And so, after some blood, sweat, and tears, Zac and I landed on the following songs to be played at our wedding this Sunday, March 30. For those of you in attendance, make your guesses now as to when these jams will make their appearance! They are NOT listed in their ceremonial or receptional order ;).
1.) Ho! Hey!, The Lumineers
2.) Come Thou Fount, old hymn
3.) Party Rock Anthem, LMFAO
4.) Sexy and I Know It, LMFAO
5.) Be Thou My Vision, old hymn
6.) Beautiful Things, Gungor
7.) In My Life, The Beatles
8.) She Is Love, Parachute
9.) Here Comes the Bride, Jonathan Cain’s rendition
10.) All of Me, John Legend
11.) Drop in the Ocean, Ron Pope
12.) In Christ Alone, Owl City
13.) Fancy, Drake
14.) Welcome to the Jungle, Guns N Roses
15.) I’ll Follow You into the Dark, Death Cab for Cutie
16.) Harlem Shake, ????
Of course, there’s also all the requests TextRSVP’d in by guests, but we’ll let this list suffice for now. Weigh in on what song you think we selected for which of the many bridal traditions!
