Play it.

There’s this popular song out there right now that has a girl singing about a DJ and not stopping the music… or something… hmm… nevermind. If I knew what that song was, I’d make it the title of this post. I am not much for popular music. I don’t listen to the radio unless it is online or it’s soft rock, and what I do know about new stuff, I watch on MTV or VH1 in the mornings.

When it came to choosing music for the wedding, Billy and I knew we wanted stuff that we’d actually listen to. Here is a list of songs I would like. Later on, I’ll ask Billy what he’d like added, which will most likely be the more upbeat tunes. I think this is an okay mix- it’s got a lot of oldies and the love songs I like. You’re lucky I only put one Celine Dion song on here- if I heard “My Heart Will Go On” at the wedding… I would cry. Insanely. You don’t want to see that.

If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment! The number one thing missing in this list is music to crazily dance to.

  1. don’t stop the music by rihanna…good song

  2. Hi! I found you through a comment on wedding bee, and I have a question for you- is urban outfitters still selling those bird tree ornament holders?
    If not, would you be willing to resell them after your wedding? They are EXACTLY what I have been looking for.
    Thanks either way!

  3. Kyle, you is so smart.
