Posted on by 0 comment

When planning a wedding, the details can become overwhelming and aspects can sometimes start to be thrown together. One part of a wedding that should not be brushed over is the music. The music played will help define the overall feel the bride and groom want for their big day. Here are some song ideas to check out.
Wedding Processional

This is the song that is played as the wedding party and bride walk down the aisle. An absolutely lovely song choice is Pachelbel’s “Canon.” This song is sometimes heard during Christmastime, but is not limited to a December wedding. “Canon” is a classic and beautiful song sure to get your guests in the wedding spirit.

Wedding Recessional

The wedding recessional is the end of the ceremony. This will be the part where the wedding party, bride and groom exit the room. The mood here is happy and triumphant for the newly married couple. A terrific option for the recessional is Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” This is sure to make the guests smile as they ready themselves for a fun after party!

First Dance

The first dance between the bride and groom is one of the most romantic parts of the entire wedding. Some wonderful options are: Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” George Strait’s “Cross My Heart,” and Etta James’ “At Last.”

Father/Daughter Dance

The father/daughter dance is such a sweet part of the reception. Many times, this is an emotional dance as the father “lets go” of his little girl. A great option for this dance is Rascal Flatts’ “My Wish.” The lyrics speak for themselves on this one!

Mother/Son Dance

The mother and son dance is generally not as emotional as the father and daughter dance. A song choice to recommend for this portion of the reception is “Forever Young” by Bob Dylan. The mother is sure to remember her son as a baby during it, but it has an upbeat enough tempo to keep the mood up.

Generational Song

Choose songs from your youth during your reception. The guests will love it and a little nostalgia never hurt anyone! “Get Down Tonight” by KC and The Sunshine Band is a fun choice from the 70’s. If you’re thinking 80’s, try “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins, “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC or “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard. Is your generation the 90’s? “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain, “Truly Madly Deeply” by Savage Garden, and “…Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears are all sure to please everyone!

Last Dance

This is the end of the reception. This song is your wedding’s conclusion and will send you out the door and into the world together. A recommendation is Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight.”

In summary, music sets the mood for any party. Your music will help your guests feel what you want them to feel during your celebration. Whether that mood is happy, excited, fun, wild, romantic, sentimental or religious, your music choices will define it.

How to Cut Off a Needy Sibling

Posted on by 0 comment

Siblings can be great. They’re like friends who will never be able to dump you. They can be there for you in a jam, tease you for stuff you’d wish they’d forget, and go in on a present for Mom together.

But not everybody’s relationships with their siblings is like that. Sometimes we can have very one-sided relationships with our siblings.

One issue that comes up often between brothers and sisters is one of them taking advantage of the other. What I mean is that, as a brother or sister, you’re very good at helping your sibling out. If they need something, you’ll willing to fill that need. That’s what family does, right?

What happens when your sibling doesn’t reciprocate? Maybe because they are the baby of the family, they’re used to being taken care of. Or maybe they just take their relationship with you and your service for granted. Maybe this is how they maintain relationships with everyone in their life.

At some point, you’re going to grow up and not want a sibling to be dependent on you. Or at least, not to walk all over you, depending on how needy your sibling is. You’re probably done with all of that nonsense. And why shouldn’t you be? You’ve been the nice, charitable, selfless sibling the entire time.

What you need to do is break the cycle. If a sibling abuses your hospitality over and over, they’ve already formed a habit of doing so. They won’t want to break it unless you force them to.

Start out by setting appropriate boundaries. You can create these and maintain them with a partner, friend, roommate, family member,or therapist who is willing to emotionally support you. They have to help you be strong. Whether or not you tell your needy sibling about these boundaries is up to you. You can confront your sibling about their neediness to start cold turkey on your new relationship with them, but, depending on you and your sibling, that might also not be the best course of action to take.

Once you’ve set your boundaries, you need to BE STRONG! Sometimes, needy siblings will make you feel guilty for not helping them out. Whether they do it intentionally or not is irrelevant. You cannot fall back into that old pattern of behavior. Unless they’re deathly ill in the hospital and need your kidney, don’t give in.

It may take a while to form a new habit of not having your sibling walk all over you. That’s fine. Just continue to stay strong.
