What do you think about public proposals?
This "movie trailer" proposal is pretty original.
This couple found a very inventive and touching way to take video at their wedding. I'm sure the virality of this video more than paid for their whole wedding! What's your original video idea? ~Sky
While dinner is being served at your wedding, you need some background music to keep the mood light and to cover the sound of clinking plates and loud aunts.
During cocktail hour, you want to put people into party mode without going too hard. It's a feel good hors d'oeuvre while you're nibbling on... hors d'oeuvres.
The wrong songs though, can create a weird vibe and make people uneasy. No gangster rap or heavy metal here, if that’s your thing save it for a little later when people have loosened their shirts and are in full party mode. Here’s a great sample playlist:
1) Ed Sheehan - Thinking Out Loud
2) Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
3) Michael Buble - Save the Last Dance for Me or Sway
4) The Lumineers - Ho Hey
5) Al Green - Let’s Stay Together
6) Neil Young - Harvest Moon
7) Van Morrison - Into the Mystic
8) John Mayer - Your Body is a Wonderland
9) Colbie Caillat - Bubbly or Lucky
10) Nat King Cole - When I Fall In Love

Here's a great example of how music can be created anywhere with some inspiration.
Cakewalk played a wedding back in November and we were lucky enough to get some video at the event. Check it out!
I love a romantic marriage proposal! This one definitely surprised the girl. Of course the punchline is "and he got a life sentence". ~Sky
We were very sad to hear about the recent passing of incredible singer George Michael. He was my favourite singer as a young lad and we still love performing Freedom '90 and Faith. I'm still trying to get the band to learn "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" from the Wham days. We'll miss you George. ~Sky
People are always on the lookout for an original wedding speech. Don't be afraid to try something really different! These two certainly succeeded -
