The DJ is booked, that was too easy! Of course we aren't going around different places trying food and all that. The place we're having the reception is near our house, we've been there for a wedding reception and DP has coordinated the annual PTA dinner there for the last 3 years and it was available on our date. The cake is being made by a friend who makes cakes on the side and the DJ is the cousin of a neighbor of ours who does gigs around town and we felt his price was reasonable.

Now we're working on the song list. I thought it would be easy but it's not. Our song we'll dance together to is "Beautiful in Your Eyes" Joshua Kadison. We are going to dance to "Over the Rainbow/It's a Wonderful World" Israel Kama...
and a couple of other slow songs. Now we're struggling with upbeat songs. We have Walkin' on Sunshine, the Dance Mix of What's Up by 4 Non Blondes (from back in the day when DP and I danced in clubs)

If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to post them we're open to ideas. Though we looked at some of the "top 200" lists and we see songs like U2's "I still haven't found what I'm looking for and "If that's your boyfriend, he wasn't last night" While I love U2 as much as the next guy, not for my wedding.

Congratulations! And just my opinion here, but no wedding is complete without the chicken dance and the electric slide, but thats just my two cents, lol.

The kids have requested "The Chicken Dance" much to the consternation of some our friends, so we'll have to do it. I don't know about the Electric Slide but we do have the Cha Cha slide on there.

Congratulations!


I've always pictured my wedding reception definitely having Harry Belafonte's "Jump in the Line" I just love that song and it always puts me in a good mood.

When I saw this I was so excited! My partner and I are having a commitment ceremony in about ummmm 50 days!! I am so excited for you and your partner!

But what I noticed the most here is that we have the same song as you do!

Best of Luck! Can't wait to hear more!

Nothing much new to report. Can't believe I posted this 4 months ago!
We have DP's birth certificate. When we get within the 60 day window we'll get our marriage license and book city hall for the ceremony.

We still need to do our invitations which will happen within the next month. We've reserved a block of rooms for the weekend at a nearby hotel including a suite for us. Anybody want 2 kids for a night? .

That's all I've got right now.

Within the next month we hope to get out the invitations, have the cake design done and have the menu updated with the banquet hall. We know what we want we just need to let the facility know. We also need to get back to the song list for the DJ.

Glad things are falling into place. We have set a date and are getting married at a private small ceremony on 29 February. After a long time of arguing we finally went and got the license and set a date.

Hope you get everything set soon and it is everything you dreamed it would be.

If you need advice on songs or general DJ items, send me a PM. I was a mobile DJ for 2 years and A) LOVED it but B) have seen some things that really can mean the difference between fun and not so fun.

Also congrats! I am also getting married in NY May 11th. Then in Aug 2013, doing a Disney Dream wedding with family and friends. The NY ceremony will just be us plus the witness. Best of luck!
