Weddings can be overwhelming; you may find yourself focused on flowers, tablecloths, and décor you didn’t even know existed. However, do not forget about your music! Playing specific songs during your wedding can get your crowd feeling emotional and create the perfect scene you’ve always wanted. You need music for when guests are sitting down at your ceremony, for when you walk down the aisle, when you exit the ceremony, during dinner, and–of course–for dancing.
Whether you are having a traditional wedding or a non-traditional wedding, there are songs that you just must have at your wedding. The list begins with “Marry Me” by Bruno Mars. We all have heard this song and many have used it to propose; needless to say it is a must have. Next is “Marry Me” by Train; this song is perfect as a first dance or to walk down the aisle on. Another great first dance song is “Then” by Brad Paisley and is a must have. A great song to have your guests listen to during dinner would be “Grow Old” by Florida Georgia Line. A religious song that is making its way to the top is “Jesus & You” by Matthew West. It is a beautiful song with a wonderful melody. Another song that plays off the feeling of Matthew West’s song would be “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton. Of course we also can’t forget Mr. Ed Sheeran and his songs “Perfect” and “Thinking Out Loud”. Brett Young has a song that makes girls hearts melt. This song is called “In Case You Didn’t Know” and talks about how he doesn’t always have the words to tell her but he is crazy about her and how can’t live this life without her.
The passion within these songs are incredible. When you remember specific moments about your life, you more than likely have a song that sets the tone. Your wedding day should be no different. You should be able to say that you felt the love surround you and it doesn’t matter whether you have an expensive DJ or an iPod playing in your backyard. As long as you have songs that mean the most to you and your spouse to create the moment that you both have always wanted, that’s all anyone can ever ask for.
