This was a major decision because I LOVE TO DANCE!
We had to have someone that could do the nice, peaceful dinner music, but also crank it up so we can party all night long.
We originally talked to a couple that did the music at my cousin’s wedding. They were very good, but they haven’t done a wedding recently, so they quit downloading music. So that means I would have had to find music from the past two years, download it on someones computer and bring the computer with me. Yes, a lot of work.
We got a number from a woman that Mikey works with. She uses the same guy for everything. Mom gave him a call and he said he was actually driving this way one Sunday and would like to meet my mom at the Moose. We both forgot. Luckily, he called when he was 20 minutes out to say he was running late. Mom ran over and our decision was made.
Gary Cooper is a saint! 🙂 He has 85,000 songs… who could ask for more? Oh and he is charging the same that the other couple was. He will play until midnight for the main price, then will stay longer if needed, which I’m sure we’ll need. We couldn’t pass this up.
As long as he has Country Roads, we’re good. And he’s a WV boy, so I’m sure that’s not a problem! We will be walking into Country Roads. Love it:) For our first dance, we’ll dance to Making Memories of Us by Keith Urban. Michael said there were two songs he wanted to dance to, but won’t tell me the other one. It’s George Strait, but that’s all I know. Dad and I will dance to I Loved Her First by Heartland. As soon as he heard that song a few years ago, he told me that’s what we’d dance to!
Of course, we’ll have the Cha Cha Slide and the Electric Slide. Probably even the Chicken Dance. I’m not sure if anyone else knows the Cupid Shuffle. If so, we may play that. I love it, but don’t really want to teach people. It’ll be hard enough in my dress 🙂
Now that’s for the reception.
For the wedding, it’s a different story.
Before the ceremony, we have an entourage. One of my friends will be singing. But we will also have a piano and an organ. They will take turns playing and singing until it’s time for the ceremony to start.
I will walk into the wedding march, but that’s all the further we’ve gotten on those decisions.
Also, my maid of honor will be singing during the ceremony. She sings the song At Last by Etta James and it’s AMAZING!
When we sit down with the pianist and organist, I’ll add what other songs they’ll be playing.
