From "So I Married an Axe Murder," the timeless "If you think I'm Sexy."
Sleepaway Camp's wonderful "She wants my beef bologna"

In weddings I like Highland Cathedral; Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring; She Walks Through the Fair; Fannie Power; Endearing Young Charms. Hector the Hero and Loch Lomond are pretty tunes but not traditional wedding tunes. However, no one will ever know so just pick tunes that you think sound nice. Your piper will have many suggestions and can play them for you. A good piper will always try to honor your requests, but keep in mind that many tunes just don't go well on Highland Pipes, i.e., anything by Celine Dion or Whitney Houston.

Good luck!

Stick to traditional Scottish 4/4 s. I do Weddings most weeks, and people want tunes that they can identify with, and tunes they probably know.
There is nothing more boring to the public as a whole (other than pipers) than playing boring heavy tunes.
