Alright ladies (and gents :cool:), I'm getting married in a little less than a month (woohoo! :D) and I'm just doing some final prepping and I need your help!

I need suggestions for my wedding playlist. (I have a dj, but want to give suggestion) I need songs for the following categories:

During appetizers (such as Michael Buble, Jason Mraz, etc.)

Slow Songs (Bryan Adams, Keith Urban, etc.)

Dance Songs (Black Eyed Peas, etc.)

So just think, when your at a wedding or other function, what songs do you like to hear and get people excited and moving and then put them in these categories.

Thanks in advance!! ;)
