Wedding Highlights Video - music?

I'm getting ready to start editing a highlights montage for a recent wedding... but I have no idea where to look for good music or a good song to use. Could anyone tell me what they use? or where to look for some good options?

Also, any editing tips/techniques for a video like this would be appreciated. I'm pretty good at editing and familiar with final cut pro, but i've never done anything like a wedding highlights video before, and i'd like it to be more than just basic clips with cross dissolves...

The best way to learn editing techniques is to view other's work.
Pay attention during movies. Concentrate on the editing. How long does a shot last. How did it make you feel. What music is playing in the background?

For music that is pretty good but costs a pretty penny to get legally, make your way to

Plenty to preview and if you like it, give them a call.

Of course, let them know I sent you. is less expensive and still nice. Good highlights music there.
