    Zero7 – destiny!

    I always thought Prodigy’s poison would make a good wedding song or Smack my Bitch Up!

    not married and CBA with the hassle but something by Marilyn Manson might be good, Personal Jesus or his Sweet Dreams cover.

    Also had Dream a Little Dream. The dream did not last as we split up a couple of years later.

    Next time I want Tim Minchin’s ‘If I Didn’t Have You’.

    We had angels as our first song, chosen by my sister as the wife was busy talking and I was ill from the night before and a first song hadn’t crossed our minds. Thankfully she wasn’t being her normal self that day otherwise who knows what it might have been.

    We got married in scotlandshire so mrs zip walked up the aisle to Arrival by Abba A bit bag pipish . During the signing,May you never ,Tom Palmers version as a nod to Hastings where I proposed and first dance was Fly me to the moon by Mr Sinatra mainly as its a nice song and we could dance to it.
    Our first choice God Only Knows by The Beach Boys is not that easy to glide round the room to so we decided to keep it ours and not share it.
    Its still “our” song.
    My advice..get a very short song.

    First dance was Dido – Thank you, before it became too much of a cliche. But I did have the DJ play the into to Ugly Kid Joe – Everything About You before going into Dido, should have seen the look on missus face ๐Ÿ˜†

    I have no recollection of the last song ๐Ÿ™‚

    500 Miles to walk down the aisle.
    Special Brew to walk out again. It sounds like a love song ( I love you, yes I do et c.) but really about beer ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lou Reed – Perfect Day. (Who cares what the subliminal meaning is, its a brilliant song)
    Other DJ orders included White Lines, Relax, Pretty Vacant & She Sells Sanctuary. I gave the DJ a list of “must not plays” which would’ve definitely included Robbie Williams if he’d been around back then!

    We had Spring from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons whilst people were assembling, Mrs B walked down the isle to the classic Wedding March, Pachelbels Canon whilst we signed the register and Castelnuovo Tefesco’s Guitar Concerto whilst we had drinks etc.

    First dance was Aerosmith I Do Want To Miss A Thing.

    George Michaels – I Will Be Your Father Figure as mrs deadly was walked in by her dad. Walk down the Aisle was “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt.
    Dancy bits were things like Faith and Freedom from Michaels as well. Then we had a bit of Abba’s Dancing Queen and Waterloo and some Shakin’ Stevens. I can’t remember the last song of the night…think it was “You’ll Never Walk Alone” but I was a bit pished at that stage.

    My now wife walked in to ‘At Last’ by Etta James, as it took me so long to propose. There were a few titters from people who got the reference….

    Somethin’ stupid – Robbie Williams/Nicole Kidman

    More than Words – Extreme
    We’ve Only Just Begun – The Carpenters
    I’ve Fallen In Love With You – Joss Stone

    Let There Be Love – Nat King Cole
    Love & Marriage – Frank Sinatra

    First Dance was Van Morrison, but I’ll be buggered if I can remember the name of the song!!

    Ok serious question as this post is freaking me out! How many songs do I need for fillers before the ceremony?

    I often have a day dream that I’ll sit my lucky bride down on a seat in the middle of the floor and give a well choreographed rendition of Prince – Kiss ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was at a wedding in Austria at the weekend. The musicians were incredible. After much badgering on my part they eventually played a brilliant version of the song. My dancing, drunk and in a kilt, was apparently less impressive, however it seemed ok from where I was standing. Perhaps i should stick to the day dreaming ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had 5 or 6 on a CD playing in the background as the guests assembled and before the bride arrived with a further 3 whilst we signed the register.

    We walked back out to The Life of Riley by The Lightning Seeds.

    Gave the DJ a list of about 60 for the evening and just let him go. He didn’t play them all and he dropped a few in that fitted the theme. I think that the dance floor stayed full all night but my memory is a bit hazy.

    I’ve been to weddings where the DJ ignored the bride and grooms selections and as a result the atmosphere was flat.

    First – Danish Wedding Waltz (it lasted about 10 seconds before I was grabbed and they cut the toes out of my socks).

    Second – Paul Weller – You do something to me (we didn’t really dance because I was recovering from the crown jewels crushing wedgie I was given as they cut my boxer shorts -another Danish tradition).

    Last – David Bowie – Heroes (well it was supposed to be but the DJ ran out of time).

    Canon in D while we hung around waiting for the bride

    Wedding Song / There is Love – sung by a friend who is in a choir while we signed the register

    Piped out to Highland Cathedral

    First dance – Proclaimers, Sunshine on Leith

    Then a Ceilidh at which I danced all night, until my toenails were bruised in fact.

    We didn’t have a traditional reception, everyone came back to the hotel for dinner and then mingled, we just had music at the wedding and it was the South Yorks Normandy Vets Male Voice Choir in MrsCat’s Grandad who sang a range of classical MVQ songs – bloody moving when in full flow and very personal to us.

    Walked in to Claire De Lune by The Philadelphia Orchestra, signed with Ludovico Einaudi’s I Giorni in the background, and walked out to Hoppipolla by Sigur Ross. First dance was Al Green ‘Lets Stay Together’. Still get goosebumps listening to any of these ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ok serious question as this post is freaking me out! How many songs do I need for fillers before the ceremony?

    We aimed for 30 mins of ‘people arriving’ songs as we figured people would be getting to the venue from 1:30 onwards and the ceremony was at 2pm.

    We got married in Vegas. We put a CD together consisting of:
    Elvis Costello – She
    Pearl Jam – Yellow Ledbetter
    PJ Harvey – Kamikaze
    Dead Kennedys – Viva Las Vegas

    Our ceremony was pretty short. Didn’t make it to track 2.

    We aimed for 30 mins of ‘people arriving’ songs as we figured people would be getting to the venue from 1:30 onwards and the ceremony was at 2pm.

    We were told to have one tune for people gathering, and one tune to sign the register to. In truth we needed a lot more songs, there were delays getting going and also the register took a while so the songs just had to get repeated.

    It took a long time to figure out our song to leave the register office to, I was so exasperated from it but we got it perfect in the end.

    Gathering – Twin Peaks theme tune.

    Brides entrance – Pachobels Cannon

    Register – Morning has broken, Cat Stevens

    Exit of couple – Sound of Drums, Kula Shaker.

    The first dance was going to be The Touch by Stan Bush but we didn’t manage to get around to it. We had already been dancing anyway. We had music on the boat from the ceremony to the reception venue, Boards of Canada, Wisp, Sea Shanties, Mr Scruff and other various tunes, and then a west country/irish band as we arrived at the venue.
    Then we had my mate playing some funk and soul, an awesome singer, some more party music djs, a wicked balkan gypsy band called Ushti Baba then more DJs so we were fairly well catered for music.
    We hadn’t had a chance to work out any moves for a first dance anyway, so I think our song choice would have made us look like massive plebs as it is a very comical choice. Worked out for the best I think.
