Confession: I feel like time is slipping, slipping, slipping…into the future.

April is rapidly coming to a close, and while I’ve made strides, I’m likely not doing nearly enough ahead of time.  So…despite it being a gorgeous day here in New Haven, I’m hankering down and as God as my witness, I’m going to finalize our CD-favor playlist and subsequently finish creating our CD cover.

Confession: is this “confession” gimmick getting old? No? Yes?

One of the biggest challenges in planning a wedding from a long distance is getting a feel for who might be reliable vendors.  With the plethora of options available to a girl in a major metropolitan area, how on earth does one go about narrowing down the options?

A Google search for “wedding djs philadelphia” gives you over 1.8 million results in…0.28 seconds.  If only if going through all of them to determine a good one took as little time.

That’s when it really helps to work with an established reception site–a good one will give you a list of vendors that they tend to work with the most.  We’ve snagged our photographer, “limo” and DJ from that list, and the excited claims of “Oh!  I’ve worked with (X vendor) at X weddings at the Mendenhall–X is/are great!” are probably the nicest reassurances we’ve gotten during this whole process.  Even so, the most confident call I made on choosing a vendor came from talking with our DJ (Tom Barrett)–I was sold when he said that they had done “at least a dozen weddings at the Mendenhall…when the actual DJ was a no-show.”

You see, Madonna was right:  music really does make the people come together.

Right?

Right?

Well, that seems to be the case at this particular wedding.  The FI and I are very much music people, and while we have yet to do our pre-cana (more on that debacle later), we have been thinking about the kind of music we want to have at our wedding.

First off, given that our song is by Andrew Bird off of The Mysterious Production of Eggs:
