Most brides take the most time thinking about what song they would like to dance to for the first time with their new spouse. While this is important, there are certainly other wedding moments to think about that could be better with some tunes! After all, who wouldn’t want the perfect soundtrack to accompany the perfect day? Here are some unique song choices that cover everything from walking down the aisle to heading out for the night:

The bridal entrance
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for for a long time, so it has to be perfect. This means choosing a song that is going to best evoke everything you’re feeling at that very moment. Here are my top picks for the processional:

“Reign of Love” by Coldplay
“Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Ingrid Michaelson
“Moth’s Wings” by Passion Pit
“Falling in Love at a Coffeeshop” by Landon Pigg

The first dance
The first dance between you and your spouse should describe your relationship and the feelings you have for one another in that special moment. Check these out:

“Birds of a Feather” by The Civil Wars
“Daydreaming” by Breathe Owl Breathe

“L-O-V-E” by Michael Buble

One thought on “A song for every precious moment of your wedding

  1. I was recently at a country-style wedding and they played Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man” for the groom/mother dance….not a dry eye in the place. 🙂
