Real Couple's Wedding Music Playlist:
Kate and Andrew

Some of us don't have an iPod full of "meaningful" songs for our wedding—we just want to play a collection of great tunes. Lucky for you, these recently wed couples made some very smart musical selections—so smart, in fact, that you'll want to take them and make them your own. (Go ahead, we'll never tell....)

A DJ played all the music throughout the wedding, including "Refur" by Sigur Rós.

Wedding party processional:

"The Light" by the Album Leaf

Bride's ceremony processional:

"Abide With Me" by Thelonious Monk
"I didn't want anything too traditional, but I didn't want anything too of-the-moment, either."—Kate

Ceremony recessional:

"This Will Be Our Year" by the Zombies

Cocktail hour:

"Good Man" by Josh Ritter
"Heavenly Day" by Patty Griffin
"Somebody Loved" by the Weepies
