Music is incredibly important as it adds the right ambience in every and any event. It can completely change the look and feel.
If you want an Indian touch to your wedding, then you definitely need to add Anoushka Shankar to your guest list. The wonderful artist, daughter of Ravi Shankar and sister of Norah Jones, is simply a beautiful artist as she’s able to fuse Indian instruments with western, such as the the sitar with the violin/guitar.
Here is a sample of exactly what I’m talking about:

Sometimes, it can be very hard to find the ‘it’ song for your first dance; that’s if you already don’t have a song you and your partner cherish. Keep this in mind: you don’t have to choose the exact rendition of a song you like. A song you like may have been twisted and changed into a different version by other artists that you can easily choose from. For example a country song with beautiful lyrics may have been changed up into a pop song.
So, I want to give you guys a hand and have decided to start up a list of some of my favourites, check it out:
A to C:
Amazed – Lonestar
At Last – Etta James
As Time Goes By – Frank Sinatra
Because You Loved Me – Celine Dion
Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis Presley
Close to You – Carpentars
Come Away with Me – Norah Jones
The First Dance is the most memorable and romantic moment of your reception. It is truly a reflection of you and your partner! Choosing the right song can be the easiest or most difficult to do. If you already have a special song, then you’re set. However, if you do not have a special song do not fret, you can always find a song that conveys the feelings and thoughts you have about each other or it can be a song that shows who you guys are as a couple!
The key to picking songs is to sit together and go through a range of songs. Narrow it down to specific genres, or music most importantly have fun with it! You cant dance?? Well take a few dancing lessons together, it’s time away from the stress of planning and brings you closer. Personalize your first dance!!
HOW ABOUT DIRTY DANCING???
IF NOT THAT…..JACK JOHNSON???
