on the turntable: a little L-O-V-E

Happy hump day, all. How has everyone been faring back at work this week? I could use a nap… or three.

I thought it would be fun to share with you the mix that Nick and I made for our wedding guests as a part of our Save the Dates (which we sent nearly two years ago — sheesh! How time flies). We chose fun, upbeat love songs (including a few guilty pleasures) that we thought all ages could enjoy and sing along to. It is still one of my favorite mixes to listen to when I need a little energy or am trying to cheer myself up.

I have linked to each song in iTunes if you feel inspired to purchase any. Happy listening :-)

  1. This is a great STD pre-wedding list, as it's chock full of great songs that you'd otherwise wouldn't hear, and it gets you in the mood to dance at the wedding (which, I've discovered, can be difficult if you have a lousy DJ!). It helps build some excitement, which is always good.

    Ours was a favor, so we focused on featuring songs that we love but are completely inappropriate for a reception, along with songs we felt would do better as road-trip-like songs (as many people would have to drive at least a half-hour to an hour to get to the reception).
