I must assume you do not have the scratch to hire a decent band. That's okay. With a deejay, make sure he keeps hi mouth shut unless you give him specific instructions to make announcements.
Anyway, keep in mind you will have older and younger people present. Ergo, no extremes like ZZTop, Rudy Valley, or Britney Spears. You really can't go wrong with some of Sinatra's early to mid 60s stuff. One song that is a must: "The Way You Look Tonight." Sinatra recorded it in 1967, I believe. Good luck!

I have sung at a number of weddings (and played guitar) in my younger days. One tune that always went over well, just before the bride comes down the ailse to "Here Comes the Bride" is "The Wedding Song" by Paul Stookey (of Peter, Paul & Mary). I'm sure that you can find it on Kazaa or other such file-share sites.
Another favorite (again, deal with my dating myself), if you're into a somewhat country flair, would be Anne Murray's "Could I Have This Dance" or Leanne Rhimes' "How Can I Breathe?"

If you are looking for reception music, consider Van Morrison's "Someone Like You" from the "Poetic Champions Compose" CD, espescially as the first dance. Especially fitting if one travelled a lot prior to meeting the "right" one.
