* Engagement shot by my friend JJC*
If I know one thing about my fiance, it is that he has to be unique from the rest. I think his idea of hell would be sitting in a room with people dressed just like him. When everyone else has it, he is not going to want it. It is truly something I admire in him. This non-conformity has really led us to some adventures, and more are sure to come. This post is in the spirit of Ed's individuality. Some wedding traditions I love such as the cutting of the cake, parents giving away the bride, and the something blue. However, some wedding traditions are lame like the garter toss. I find "Here Comes the Bride" as one of those such traditions. So I here are some of the songs that are in the running as my ceremony music:
- "Help, I'm Alive" by Metric is such a awesome song! I would use the instrumental version, but the song makes me think of something exciting in life. My wedding day cannot be more exciting.
- "Clocks" by Coldplay is a classic from the days nearly ten years ago when Edward and I began dating. Their song "Yellow" is such a beautiful love song, but "Clocks" is moving.
- "Hurricane" by Something Corporate is another unique choice. However, the opening line "I think I'm on the edge, of something new with you" really fits the wedding spirit. It would also be a good testimony to irony since the song title still means something to our hometown.
Those are just a few ideas, but there are others. Florence and the Machine, Arcade Fire, and of course my old stand by Better Than Ezra have excellent options. Only about six and a half more months to go!
