BOOM BOOM BOOM, LET ME HEAR YOU SAY WAYOOOO!
The Outhere Brothers are probably not going to make the shortlist for your choice of first dance, but could it slot in anywhere else?
This week we wanted to ponder a question that almost all couples have/will ponder during their preparation for their big day, what songs should we have for our wedding?
Wedding songs are hugely important to your day and set the tone and atmosphere of the event. They need to reflect your feelings for one another, appeal to your likes and dislikes and, just as importantly, appeal to the audience; both young and old.
At MWV HQ, we had a debate and, with our diverse taste in music, came up with some options to help couples decide on the apt tunes for their day.
There are many times of the day when a song can be appropriate: wedding dinner , ceremony, party songs, father/daughter dance and last dance.
This is without: bouquet throwing songs, garter tossing songs and (I can imagine a bit of Kenny G is high up this list) honeymoon night songs.
We have chosen our top contemporary beats and some traditional ballads for first dances, hopefully these will quench your thirst for musical satisfaction (although it goes without saying Etta James ‘At Last’, standard 🙂
CLASSIC WEDDING SONGS
ALTERNATIVE WEDDING SONGS
Scatman John – Scatman (just checking you’re still with us, although could be interesting)
A lot of people will be having Bruno Mars ‘Marry You’ and Dixie Cup’s classic ‘Going To The Chapel’ and we don’t blame them, but wouldn’t it make a welcome change to hear the rocking Black Sabbath blasting out ‘Heaven And Hell’ as the bride walks down the aisle?
What songs were a must-play at your wedding? Were there any tunes that you forbid your DJ from playing?
