Good idea

This is a pretty cool idea, different than the standards I always hear at weddings.

Slightly related story: the last wedding I went to was two of my best friends, and they did a thing where they let each guest pick two songs to go on the playlist for the reception. I forgot to send mine in, so the bride, knowing how much I love Sleater-Kinney, said she put on one of their songs for me. Awesome! I asked which one, and she said "Jumpers."

Me: "You...know that song is about jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge, right?"
Her: "Yeah! Nobody's going to be listening to the lyrics anyways!"

She was right, but it was still kinda weird

[/cool story bro]

Cool story, bro!

I've never been to a wedding but I'd imagine you'd want music you can dance to or at least laugh and drink to. Buncha string quartet metal songs and Tori Amos' "Raining Blood" sounds like a fucking funeral.

No one dances when arriving at the ceremony, bro... not unless they've been heavily at the sauce beforehand...

People shuffle in quietly and talk in hushed tones about how crappy the flowers look, what a tool the reverend is, and how they can't believe so-and-so they don't personally know got invited but so-and-so they quite like didn't, while the groom stands at the front and silently shits himself.

I imagine he'll go for mood music for the pre-ceremony, and lounge-type stuff for the reception. If I know this guy at all well there will be nothing you would get at cheesy wedding reception discos. And certainly not endless R'n'B and reggae, like the last wedding I went to.
