Real Couple's Wedding Music Playlist:
Amanda and Brian

Ceremony prelude:

A local steel-drum player performed at the Florida ceremony.

Bride's processional:

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow," by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, played on CD by a friend in charge of music cues.

First dance:

"The Beauty of Who You Are," by Marc Broussard.

Father/Daughter dance:

"Little Miss Magic," by Jimmy Buffett.

Extra touch:

Because the wedding date fell on Mother's Day, the couple handed out flowers to all the moms in attendance while the song "Hey Mama," by Kanye West, played. "We created a playlist on iTunes and ran the music from a laptop," says Brian. "To choose a good variety, we put together a list of songs and had the bridesmaids and groomsmen vote. It was a great way to get a feel for what everyone wanted to hear, and it created a fun email debate. Plus, they thought to add a few classics we'd missed."
