What music should we play at our wedding?

Hi, getting married in a private Catholic Church on a South Texas Ranch this November. Very conservative people. We are having our reception dinner near a river/creek- very beautiful. Nearby is a giant gazebo in which we'll have the dancing. (only 25 people including us) are coming. What music do we play? We can't decide. Bride likes country, Latin, Top 40, or quiet classical. Groom couldnt care less but likes to listen to Electronic dance music. Both bride and groom were thinking of something classical with a bit of modern. Song suggestions would be appreciated

    Is this for your reception or your ceremony?

    Many Catholic churches only allow you to choose from a preapproved list of music, but some will let you bring in your own.

    The music if for your reception, right? Play whatever you want. You could ask everyone invited for their favorite song and play those songs.

    Rock
