Your wedding is a huge, life-changing event. Tears of happiness, excitement, hope, anxiety – they will all be part of your Big Day. And each of these moments will deserve a song of its own – a melody to accompany you through the happiness, joy and beauty you are experiencing.
What are the best types of songs to choose for your wedding’s biggest moments? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- The ceremony. This is by far the absolute essence of your wedding day. You may choose to accompany this moment by classical music (such as Bach’s Ave Maria for the processional and Mendelsohn’s Wedding March for the recessional). But you may as well choose to accompany the ceremony with more modern songs (e.g. Train’s Marry Me for the processional and Coldplay’s Paradise for the recessional).
- The First Dance. As one of the most important parts of the wedding reception, the First Dance will mark the beginning of your life-long “dance” together as a married couple. Choose a song that’s genuinely meaningful for you, regardless of whether it’s very modern or not so much. From Frank Sinatra’s Fly Me to the Moon to Beyoncé’s Halo, there’s a myriad of tunes you can select for this special moment. Make it memorable!
- The DO NOT play songs. We all have songs we hate, or songs that remind us of bad times in our lives. But what some couples do not realize is that there are many songs that come “in disguise” as well. For instance, Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On will seem like a suitable, romantic choice for the First Dance. However, it is more than worth remembering that this is an extremely sad song – and it is surely not appropriate for such a happy moment in your life.
