Rehearsal dinner music

A few days ago Blake’s mom asked us to come up with a list of 50 songs for the rehearsal dinner, and last night I sat down with iTunes, put Arrested Development on in the background (courtesy of Hulu), and made a nice long list. After we sent it to Blake’s mom, she replied, “Perfect list!  You should post it…I was looking for lists and saw lots of ideas, but these titles are better!” So I’m taking her advice and posting it here. =) Perhaps some random internet bride will find this list on Google someday and it will improve her reception or rehearsal dinner.

Note: If you’re interested in purchasing this whole list of mp3s  all at once, you can do that here: buy this list on Amazon. Just scroll all the way to the bottom and you have the option to add every item to your cart.
(Unfortunately, Amazon limits the list to only 40 items — and the list below has 50 songs — so I removed some of the “special interest” ones that were special to me but probably not to most brides.) You can also click on the titles individually to get that song directly.

I’m not really sure what music we’ll have at the reception yet… that’s on my list of things to figure out in the next 24 (!) days. Time is sure getting short!
