Songs - final (ish) list!

This weekend we meet with our celebrant at the hall for a trial run for the big day!  EEEEEEK!!! so close!

So by Sunday 11am we need to have our music sorted, we're pretty close, I posted back in mid May a list we were working on, and not much has changed (links to Youtube vids on song titles):

Arriving at the Hall - Marry You - Bruno Mars
Walking Down The Aisle - Jessica's Theme - Man From Snowy River
Signing Registry Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version
Walk Back Down Aisle - Crazy Little Thing Called Love - Queen
First Dance - Halo - Beyonce
Cutting cake - maybe How Sweet It Is - James Taylor
Bouquet Toss - Single Ladies - Beyonce
Garter toss (if we do it) - You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker
Loving the Bruno Mars song, really up beat, I think it's perfect to be be playing as our car arrives, and we're getting sorted, then we'll go to Snow River song for the walking bit, it's more mellow, and just lovely.

I love Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's Somewhere Over the Rainbow version, I think it will work well as background music while the 'official' stuff is happening.

Everyone loves a bit of Queen for the end of the ceremony.

Probably my favourite song ever is Beyonce's Halo, I cry nearly every time I hear it, so I've told the makeup girls to make sure I'm waterproof everything, and have a supply for touchups!

Not overly worried if the music just goes freeform from there, but if we remember, I think How Sweet It Is will be perfect for the cake, Single Ladies for the flower toss and a good stripper song (and I loved 9 1/2 weeks movie!  Mickey Rourke was so hot before he got carved up!) for the garter (if we do it!).

Now just to make sure we're 150% ok with them and burn them to disc for the celbrant on Sunday!
