Our wedding is less than 10 weeks away and we still have a lot of loose ends to tie up before we say “I do.” We’ve finally settled on a caterer (someone from my hometown) and we’ll be finalizing the menu in the next couple of days. I’ll post the whole thing - complete with budget - once it’s been confirmed.
We’re currently in the process of designing our wedding invitations, and it’s been more challenging than I could have imagined. After weeks of pouring over various invite language, I think we’ve finally settled on something that sounds like us and yet isn’t too informal for the occasion.
The next big thing on our “to do” list is to firm up the set list for the band. We’ve selected the song for our first dance, and we’ve put together an i-pod compilation of our favorite music for the cocktail hour, but we’re struggling on our dance tune requests for the rest of the reception. We know what we don’t want played (The Macarena comes to mind), but I’m not sure what people dance to these days .
If Matt had his way, the set list would consist of mostly Beck and The Pixies, and I’m more of a Ben Folds kinda girl - but I don’t think that this is the stuff that guests will shake their booties to. I’m thinking of a mix of 80’s favorites with a few country songs thrown in for the benefit of my dad and sisters, but I don’t have anything specific in mind.
So, once again, I am turning to my readers for advice - what gets you up out of your chair and onto the dance floor? Post your favorite dance tunes in the comments section below and I’ll forward your suggestions to our wedding band.
