Fave Five Friday, Wedding Songs

September 19, 2008

I know you peeps are probably sick of all this wedding talk already (esp the dudes!), but I swear it’ll only be a little while longer. I only “axe” this because I have faith in you WWE readers. 🙂

So this week’s Fave Five list is a call out to all you music lovers/experts out there. No song from any generation or genre will be out of the question. We’re looking for those hidden gems out there.

The topic, as made obvious by the blog title, is Wedding Songs. Ones I’ve just gotsta have and overplayed ones to avoid like the plague. If you’re yet unmarried, or married but regret not playing some songs at your wedding… here’s your chance to live vicariously through me! 😉 Holla atcho boy!

Much love y’all!

Da In Da Running list:

  1. The Penguins – Earth Angel
  2. Stevie Wonder – You Are the Sunshine of My Life or Isn’t She Lovely or Ribbon in the Sky?
  3. James Taylor – How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved By You)
  4. Tony Terry – Everlasting Love
  5. Colbie Caillat – Magic
  6. Trey Lorenz – Someone to Hold
  7. Keith Martin – Because of You
  8. Hi-Five – I Can’t Wait Another Minute
  9. Opihi Pickers – Love You Forever (representing’ some Hawaiian flava!)
  10. The Stylistics – I’m Stone In Love With You
  11. The Jets – You Got It All
  12. etc…

(ok, so it’s a little more than 5… hehe!)

Da Overplayed/Avoid list:

  1. UNV – So In Love With You
  2. All-4-One – I Swear
  3. Aerosmith – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
  4. 98 Degrees – I Do (Cherish You)
  5. *NSYNC – This I Promise You

We basically want people to hear the song, reminisce and go “Ohhhhhhh!” once they hear the song that hits home for them. Please help a brutha out and post your suggestions below (songs, artists, both!). I’ll be sure to give you credit during the reception (who’s gonna check? Nah!). 😛

P.S. Speaking of weddings, I recently read a fictional, but amusing post about Twittering a wedding and thought the idea was hilarious. Can you imagine me, or any groom for that matter, at the altar twittering live updates. Too funny!

Shoots! Have a good weekend y’all!

Fave Five Friday – Wedding Party Gift Ideas

September 12, 2008

OK, so this somewhat of a self-serving post, but what the h*ll, let’s give it a shot. 😛

We’re getting down to the wire for this whole wedding thang, and I’m trying hard to think of an awesomely unique gift idea for my boyz/groomsmen/wedding party. I’ve been on a few parties myself and got some cool gifts like shades, an engraved money clip, a high quality pen, etc., but I’m looking for that special somethin’-somethin’. The “it” that will leave a memorable mark forever…

I’ve got a few things in mind, but maybe you, my beautiful (but virtual) online friends can help a brutha out with some neat gift ideas. And hopefully, none of my boys will read this one. LOL! If ya gots any ideas for the lady and her party, feel free to post those below as well. The more help the merrier!

In no particular order, here are some I’ve received or heard of:

  1. Alcohol! (in one form or another)
  2. Sunglasses/Shades
  3. Watches
  4. Shoes (and then you wear it during the wedding)
  5. Custom engraved _______ (fill in the blank).

Please post your suggestions below. Can be your own ideas or ones you’ve received or heard of yourself. Helllllp! 🙂

P.S. Be sure to pick up tomorrow’s Honolulu Advertiser for the most amazing front page in history! Hehe, nah, they’ll be hyping my face and blog on the front page, so consider this your warning. Don’t want ya spilling hot coffee on yourself out of fear or amazement… one or the other. 😛 Oh yeah, and be sure to also check out this blog that same Saturday for an interesting topic on “Bag Ladies”…

Shoots! Have a good weekend y’all!
