I had no idea you needed to pick so many songs just for the church, prelude, processional, bride entrance, leaving the church...OMG....HELP!! What are all you doing? I looked at the list this website offers, way too many to choose from. I should mention, we are using an organist at the church.

    Does the organist have a sample disc of them playing for you to listen to to choose songs from?

    Do they have suggestions that you can then youtube to listen to examples?

    Did anyone have a bridal party dance...where the bridal party and bride and groom dance to a song together at the reception? I guess it's more like a friend song...i'm trying to figure out a good song
