{Hopefully I'll have wedding pictures posted soon. PS The ukulele is the coolest instrument ever. End of story.}

I haven’t blogged in what feels like forever. My cousin’s wedding was on Friday. I was a bridesmaid. It was hot outside, but it was a lovely wedding. What I really want to talk about is the fantastic music that was played. Side note: The DJ was amazing. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle to “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole and my beautiful cousin walked down the aisle to “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train. The wedding party was introduced by each couple and walked in the reception to “Walk It Out” by Unk. We each had to do a dance. I can’t remember what I did, but I know it ended in a twirl.

My cousin and her husband had their first dance to a Rascal Flatts song and halfway through upbeat music started and they broke out into choreographed dance. It was epic, honestly. I can’t remember all the songs, but I know N’Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye” was in there somewhere. My cousin is a fantastic dancer by the way and I give her husband major kudos. The father/daughter dance was “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman. And three of the groomsmen (wearing T-Bird work suits), one of their girlfriends & the DJ did a dance number to a mix of Grease songs.

Anyway, the wedding has me thinking about what music is appropriate to play at a wedding. What songs give a wedding a bit of personality? I’ve decided that my wedding party would walk in to the reception with the song “Back in Black” by AC/DC. & My father/daughter dance would have to be “California 2005” by Phantom Planet- because it's the slower version of the song. My dad and I bond by watching The O.C. together. My dad loves the show & we are currently on season three.

What songs do you want played at your wedding? What songs have you liked at other weddings? Basically if you have any experiences or thoughts on music at weddings, please share.
