The Music

There are brides that worry about the food, brides that worry about the flowers, brides that worry about the favors.... At this wedding, this bride's chief stress point was the music that would be played at the reception. Having sworn that no cover band would ever play at her wedding, and never being a fan of wedding DJs, either, she decided on the option most preferred by control freaks: to do it herself. After agonizing endlessly over not only song choice but placement and order, and then slaving for hours to copy the songs off of their original CDs then "burn" them onto the wedding CDs, and fearing above all else that no one would venture onto the dance floor, her biggest reward on Her Day (well, apart from snagging a husband) was seeing people bopping to the tunes. Thanks must also go to Paul, the Master of Ceremonies, who pushed the start and stop buttons perfectly in tune with the bridemonster's way-too-detailed instructions. Here's the 5½ hours' worth of tunes that were played.
