    Same we were told one song to gather to, one for carly to walk in to, one for signing the register which will then be used to walk out with.

    No music is sounding appealing

    Wife entered to Abba a la Muriel’s Wedding…

    We walked out to “It’s the end of the world as I know it and I feel fine” by R.E.M.

    First dance Paul Weller “you do something to me”

    … then we had a Punk and New Wave covers band for the party!

    I know it can be a bit of a bitch choosing. Our biggest problem was the song to leave to. Shortlisted quite a few but none of them really “had it”.
    Putting together some nice ones to gather to is fairly easy though, just think of all the tunes you like and have a listen to them. Some will work, some wont. Try not to get too bogged down or defeated by it!! If it all seems like a chore, go for a ride or a pint and come back to it a bit later when you can be excited about it!

    “I’m watching porn in my hotel dressing gown” is certainly not something you’d hear at many weddings

    I have the added ball ache of it not being allowed words such as god, heaven, angel etc so it’s driving me bananas.

    We had this and had to send the songlist of to the venue (or maybe the registrar) for approval before the ceremony.
    We saw loads of people online saying that they used Angels by Robbie Williams, so thought we’d stick it in and would remove it if asked to.

    But we weren’t asked to and it was played without a raised eyebrow or a dash to the iPod…….

    Been married to Mrs Prawny for 7 years and I still haven’t danced with her.

    A couple of our mates were going to have ‘You’re the One For Me, Fatty’ by Morrisey for theirs, that would have been funny, but they had a band instead.

    Just the good ones 😉

    My (now ex) wife walked down the aisle to a pianist bashing out Lou Reed’s Perfect Day on the joanna. I/We had chosen it months and months beforehand but on the day of our wedding it was all over the media and Number 1 thanks to Children In Need.

    With tongue firmly in cheek, a reading was the lyrics to The Wonder Of You by the king of rock’n’roll 😉

    We were going to use Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) as it sounds really nice, then we listened to the lyrics and found out it’s really not!

    We did sign the register to the Skyrim theme though…

    We had classical and jazz stuff for processional music, only one I really remember was ‘Laura’ but i can’t remember which version (it was my F-i-L’s favourite and the reason my wife got her name)

    First dance was Something Changed by Pulp, mirroring my speech about the chance happening that brought us together; next song was a floor filling ‘Baby I love you’ by the Ramones.

    We left the reception to ‘We have all the time in the world’ – the Fun Lovin’ Criminals version.
