FINAL THOUGHTS:

Some of the songs I have suggested might contain bad words or might be inappropriate for your family. Please take time to sort through the songs to make sure they are appropriate for your guests.

I created this list for my wedding and spent a lot of time on it. I want to share anything I can to make everyone's planning process a bit easier!


Cheers,

Jennifer Ipsan
