Hi Fi Wedding Music

While browsing the latest wedding articles on the Etsy blog, I came across an article entitled "Have a Hi Fi Wedding."

What exactly is "Hi Fi", which stands for "High Fidelity"?  Wikipedia says high fidelity reproduction is a term used by home stereo listeners and home audio enthusiasts (audiophiles) to refer to high-quality reproduction of sound to distinguish it from the poorer quality sound produced by inexpensive audio equipment. Ideally, high-fidelity equipment has minimal amounts of noise and distortion and an accurate frequency response.

Are you an audiophile?  Are you banging your head against the wall trying to come up with the perfect mix, a mini-playlist of non-traditional, "un-top 40," something that matches yours and your fiance's music tastes to set the mood for your wedding?

The author of the above mentioned article, Ashley, with Hi Fi Weddings, (who I might mention not only owns a record store, but also does lifestyle wedding photography and design, this chick is seriously cool!) can help you.  Below are some of her suggestions for your wedding playlist, broken down by music tastes.
