More Music! (Wedding Edition! Part 5)

More Music! (Wedding Edition! Part 5)

After our first dance and our parent dances, it was time for dinner. (Check out our menu here!)

When choosing songs for our dinner playlist, we decided to use some of the slower songs that we wanted to play. We wanted to see people up and dancing after dinner, so we planned on playing the super upbeat songs then. Dinner time seemed like the perfect time to play those slower, sentimental songs.

Some of the songs on this list were requested by our guests. (When we sent out our invitations, we put a song request line on the R.S.V.P.s. Thanks for the idea, Pinterest ;) 

I think we ended up with a pretty nice mix. Check it out!
