Olden times music


Is anyone experiencing an age gap problem when it comes to choosing music? My H2B is slightly younger than me, 8 years. At times this doesnt feel like a big gap but at other times it feels like a chasm!

Choosing the music for our wedding next year is one of the times when it feels like a chasm.

I love really cheesy music, one of my chums little boys calls it 'Olden times music' which makes me laugh!

I love Cilla Black, Herb Alpert, Bert Kampfert, Marvin Gaye (the early stuff) Neil Diamond, Dolly Parton etc. We have been looking at the music for our wedding and my H2b doesnt like anything that I like. Well I am willing to give him most of his choices as this is his first time but I would like my music tastes to be reflected in there someway.

He wants Enqrique - Hero for our first dance - fine my me, thats cheesy enough :0) but I am flummoxed by what I walk down the aisle to, he wont have cilla, nor bert nor Herb. I think we will have to settle on Classical, but its a Humanist ceremony and we can have anything we want, I am desperate for this to be a memorable day, my first wedding was hi-jacked by both sets of mothers and I felt as if they could have put a dummy on wheels and dressed her in a white frock and no one would have noticed. This time it is different, we (well me) are paying for it all.

Is there anyway I can introduce the type of music I like?

Thanks for listening.

    dfe have your choice as you walk down the aisle end of xx that bits about u xx explain it in a nice way lol x

    what about something from swing - eg older song sung by a newer artist eg robbie or michael bubble - that way he may recognise the song even though its an oldem
