Holy crap! It’s another wedding post. I promise I’m going to get my mind off of wedding stuff and on to Christmas and what I’m going to be cooking and baking (cannoli and panettone!) as soon as I finish up a few wedding details.
In an effort to save a little cash, we plan on going DIY for the reception music. I’m armed with a laptop full of iTunes fun so who the heck needs a stinkin’ DJ? Right? Uh….um…. right! Long story made a bit shorter, this is harder than I thought. Mainly because I like a whole lot of different music. From Luther Vandross (can’t have a romantic reception without a little Luther) to The Clash, to George Strait, basically I’m all over the map.
As I’ve been pulling music from my library of tunes, which entails me putting it on “shuffle” and when something comes up that I like I write it down on a list, I’m noticing that it’s pretty old school. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however our various nieces and nephews (who are considerably younger) might enjoy listening to something that came out after they were born.
I love to throw a good party, so this is important. And this is where you come in. Give me your suggestions for reception music. Fast stuff, slow stuff. 70’s through today. What are your favorites? And if you want to give me a little bit of history on why it’s a personal favorite, even better!
Think of this as your good deed for Christmas. You’ll have my everlasting devotion, although you may wonder if that is that a good thing.
I’ll leave you with a little bit of Luther Vandross, just to get you started…
Or maybe you’re more of a Clash person. If so, here’s a trip down memory lane.
