Wedding CD’s, customized discs created by couples to celebrate their love, have all but replaced Jordan almonds in ubiquity as a wedding favor, the New York Times reports.

Couples are now running through their CD & iTune collection to select tracks for their family and friends to remember their special occasion by. According to one wedding planner the NYT interviewed, three quarters of her clients give CDs as favors. PSFK quite likes this quote from the article:

"So often the bride and groom want everyone to identify with the love they share, and they think they can do it with music, but it’s like, who cares that ‘In Your Eyes’ is their song?" asked Darren Rose, 29, a radio advertising account executive and D.J. in San Diego, who has received three wedding discs in the last two years, none of which he wanted to hear twice. "They’re trying to express themselves, but they do it with the same songs everyone’s heard a million times." He listed "The Way You Look Tonight" sung by Frank Sinatra, Al Green’s "Let’s Stay Together" and Nat King Cole’s "Unforgettable" among the "tired, played out" tracks that many couples favor.
