Looking for suggestions for songs to ask our gypsy-jazz wedding band to play!

We're excited to have booked a great band that plays "hot" acoustic guitar/bass jazz with influences of soul, flamenco, and bebop. They play a lot of original songs, which I love, and of course Django Reinhardt songs. But I'd like to give them some requests that will suit our wedding audience, and I don't know the genre well enough to name too many songs. What suggestions in that genre would you have for:
-a few slower waltzes that older folks will enjoy
-a romantic couples' dance number
-something to swing or Charleston to that isn't too fast (a lot of this genre is a little too fast for us to manage)
-something familiar, like a standard, for those who find this music kind of out there
