Making Sweet Music

Along with my hair trial and DIY bouquet trial a couple of weekends ago, I also met with a good friend of mine from college who will be our DJ at our Saturday evening reception. We went over the basic flow of the evening including which formalities we’ll be including (toasts, first dance, father/daughter dance), which formalities we’ll be skipping (bouquet/garter toss, dollar dance, any unecessary cake smashing), what songs I’d like to avoid (ALL group dances including but not limited to the electric slide, YMCA, and the macarena) and what songs I’d love to hear. For the last few months I’ve been bookmarking YouTube videos of songs as I hear them and get excited. My collection is completely random, but these songs are always guaranteed crowd movers among the party animals in my family. I’m hoping our playlist will include at least some of these sure crowd pleasers.

Completely random? Possibly. Completely fun? You bet your dancing shoes it will be! What about you – do you have any songs you’d love to hear at your reception?
