Wedding Reception Dance Playlist

Our lovely friend Amira played on the beach for our ceremony. Amira played:
Diamonds and Pearls by Prince for the processional
Into my Arms by Nick Cave during the signing of the register


Due to the small venue we didn't really have room for a band at our reception, so an ipod was 'the music'. For the 'more mellow' part of the reception we played The Bamboos - Sidestepper, Step it up and Rawville.

We were greatly inspired by Emily and Dylan's Wedding Playlist for our reception dance music. It really helped to have a place to start, rather than at A of our itunes library. We built on their list, purchasing a few key tracks off itunes and filling the rest with similar music from our collection, cumulating in 2.7hrs of magical fun.
