As I sketched out our initial budget it became apparent we were going to have to scale it back a bit. Mr. T suggested doing our own music on an iPod, an idea that I'm warming up to. I love music and used to spend hours making my own mixed tapes...ah, cassettes.
I ran across this idea, I think on the Offbeat Bride blog, again (love that site):
What a great way to compile a list! And this way I can make certain we'll have an array of music to get everyone dancing.
I'm brainstorming Halloween-ish songs to put in the mix, like:
Dead Man's Party by Oingo Boingo
Thriller by Michael Jackson
Monster Mash (not sure about that one, but it keeps popping into my head, unfortunately)
Every day is Halloween by Ministry (possibly for later in the evening...don't want to scare the families too much)
Pet Sematary by the Ramones
