Speaking of music, since I'm still obsessing over my wedding & anxiously waiting for my pics (about two more weeks!), I thought I'd write a little bit about our reception & our music selections. This was one of our tougher choices since LC & I have a variety of tastes, but we made it work.
Our First Dance-Stay With You, John Legend. LC's one request for our first dance was no country. This was a dilemma because all the songs that I had picked out were from the country genre. We came to an agreement with this one, since we both like John Legend & the words were perfect for us.
Mom/Daughter Dance-I had the pleasure of dancing with my beautiful mother on my wedding day. I let her pick the song, and was ecstatic when she chose, Mama's Song by Carrie Underwood. I secretly hoped she would pick this song because one, I love Carrie Underwood & two, the song couldn't have been more fitting for our dance together.
Parents Dance-Not wanting to leave my step-dad out of the equation (or LC's mom), we decided to do a "parents dance". I really wanted My Wish by Rascal Flatts & LC wanted anything but. We were supposed to dance Somewhere Over the Rainbow, but at the very last minute, LC told the DJ to play Rascal Flatts :-)
Bouquet Toss-I wanted to stay away from all cliche songs, (ie. Single Ladies) so I decided to roll with Who's That Chick by Rhianna. Definitely a fun dance song and a way to keep the party going.
Garter Toss-LC decided to go more classic, with Shook Me All Night Long, by ACDC. It was a fun one and a good way to sneak in an oldie but goodie :-)
Now that our wedding day is almost a month gone, there are still certain things that stick out in my mind about it. One being our reception and my mom & stepdad who danced the night away. I've never seen them have so much fun in my life :-) I can't wait to see what other fun memories our photographer captured.
