Songs to Celebrate to!

1 Jul

Hello guys!

On a rainy Saturday, GP and I decided to go out to investigate shirt options. I’ll go into more detail on that later, when GP gets a better idea on what he wants, but that day we met up with our friend and DJ, Jeeves. We watched “The Five-Year Engagement” and laughed the ENTIRE way through it, especially at this bit right here:

HI-LAAARIOUS! Emily Blunt ftw!

Anyway, afterwards we got to talking shop wedding, and Jeeves gave us a rundown on what he’d need to do the DJ-ing work for us. We’d been compiling a wedding list, both for dancing and other times (quiet music during dinner, for example). The list is over 100 songs, and counting, and we’re uber excited about our choices. Although, a part of me is thinking of adding in more ‘generic’ songs (like Bruno Mars, for example).

Anyway, Jeeves needs all the music in audio file format so that he can mix it up and burn it to a CD for us to listen to. We have a majority of the songs on Audio CDs, but there are just some which we don’t. And most of the ones ON Audio CDs needed to be ripped into our laptop and stored on the local server. So that weekend, after returning from Jeeves’ house, we spent moving files around and ripping CDs. We successfully were able to grab about 40% (give or take) of the songs we need, and just need to get about 72 downloaded through appropriate means.

Which means we’re getting our songs all ordered! Yay for marking that off the list!!

Another thing we need to do is figure out the ‘important songs’: the signing of the marriage certificate and the cake cutting. We’re still not 100% sure we’ll be having an over-the-top bridal party entrance or an equally-as-over-the-top bridal couple exit from the reception, so we’re still deliberating whether we’ll NEED songs for those. It’s safe to say that we have the processional, recessional, first dance, and a spicy, sexy second dance!

GP also wants to perform up to three songs at the reception with his father, my father, and his brother (all musos, this family!). So I’m uber excited to see what they come up with!
