iPod Wedding Playlist

Oh, how I wish I were invited to all of your weddings! You really are such a fun bunch.

Bridget e-mailed me to tell me all about her DIY, Quaker, photobooth, yardgame wedding in Barre, MA on a little farm named Hartman's Herb Farm.

Aside from four vendors, they did everything else themselves: flowers, decorations, invitations, cupcakes, photographs, music, hair, makeup, etc. She described her wedding in a way we all hope to describe our weddings, "It was the best, pretty much."

While planning her wedding, she looked all over the internet for a pre-made, awesome dance party list. She never found one, so they assembled their own. She wanted to share the list with all of you who are looking for inspiration! (She even eliminated the "party killers" that they didn't know were party killers at the time...)

Great list! Except - now I am SOOO curious about the "party killers"!! I would love to know what they were... maybe we need to compile a general "don't play this at a wedding" list!

Emily Rae said...

Right, can we know the party killers so we avoid them?

Ms. Bunny said...

Love this! Thank you for sharing. My playlist is perpetually in flux. It's so good to see what worked well for others.

Might I ask what *didn't* work so I can double check my playlist for your duds?

Hi All, this is Bridget. So it depends on your party cause a total party killer at ours ended up being a hit at a wedding we just went to. Here's my Party Killer List:

Get Down Tonight (do a little dance...)
I Saw Her Standing There
I Want You by Kelly (I love Kelly)
Drive my Car by the Beatles
Love Train by OJs
Let's Get It On by Marvin Gaye (too hard to dance too)
Grove is in the Heart
Celia by Simon and Garfunkel
Should I Stay or Should I go?
Kiss by Prince (sorry Sara! This is really tough to dance to, though)
Ain't Too Proud to Beg (this was THE party killer, oddly enough. But it was good at the wedding I just went to.)

We didn't play all of these, I could just tell from the vibe of the night that certain songs would not have worked.

Oh, and one correction: we only had ONE vendor! =)

Ya'll're making me happy.

Kate said...

Wow, AMAZING playlist! I agree with Bridgie B, Ain't Too Proud to Beg should be a winner. I guess sometimes people just need to pee or get another drink!

Why would Tegan and Sara be a party killer? Suuuch a good band.
