Wedding Day Soundtrack

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

I always knew what songs I wanted playing on my wedding day. However, as I was crossing things off my final 'to-do list', this was one of the items I put off, until two days before the wedding. I don't know why I did that, perhaps because I didn't think it would take that long, but for some reason it was somewhat challenging categorizing which songs we wanted for the processional, recessional, so on and so forth. I put together a sample playlist to get you started, especially those who seek non-traditional songs. As you can see, I'm partial to R&B/soulful songs :)
