Tips On How To Choose The Perfect Songs

Now you’ve seen our choices, it’s a good idea to sit down with your songs and determine if they match the tone or theme of your wedding, as it’s sometimes easy to overlook certain aspects.

Below are a few tips you could follow to ensure your songs are much more perfect and show off your special relationship with your partner.

Consider The Lyrics Of Your Songs 

The last thing you want is to have a song picked out, only to find out later a lyric or a deeper meaning that might spoil the beauty of your occasion, as irony can be a cruel thing, so a song you adore might cause a faux pas at your wedding.

For example, as good as single ladies by Beyonce or marry you by Bruno Mars is, they might be a little on the nose and give off the wrong impression.

So you might want to look through the lyrics and see if there’s anything that you and your partner can resonate with.

Make Your Songs Fun

As much as we like classic pieces of R&B and soul, you want a playlist that is both lively and fun, as you don’t want too many songs that slow down the pacing of your wedding.

Why not try some hip-hop, as you’ll likely find pieces that will appeal to all ages who will appreciate their inclusion?

If you’re worried about lyrics that are explicit and might be a bit too much for younger ears, there are plenty of clean hip-hop songs like rapper’s delight by the Sugarhill gang and maybe some fresh prince.

You can pick songs that sound fresh and are classic staples of the hip-hop genre, and if there is a song you really want that has explicit lyrics, you might be able to find a censored version that you can still enjoy.

But really, it’s down to your own choice, so for your reception, you might find there is some leeway here as it’s more likely that there are mainly adults at this time, so have fun with it.

Get Personal With Your Songs

Perhaps you and your partner have a favorite song or one that might remind you of a significant milestone of your relationship, such as first dates or anniversaries.

Of course, your entrance music is a very personal choice as it marks your transition into a married individual, but getting input from family and friends is a great way to get them involved in your wedding preparations.

Perhaps there is a song that is popular in the family or a song that means something to your parents, which will make a touching song for the father or mother dance

Add Some Twists To Your Chosen Songs

If you want to make your ceremony more beautiful, you could have your songs played by a harpist or maybe even a choir sing your song, which adds a ceremonious tone to your service, and will be appreciated by all of your guests.

Of course, some songs work better than others, so it might be a good idea to sample different versions of your song to get the tone just right.

Not only does this raise the mood of your ceremony, but it won’t be easy to have dry eyes from the magnificent beauty of it all.

Final Thoughts

With these tracks, you might decide to use these as your exit song or something to fill the processions as your reception hall makes adjustments to the evening party.

There are a lot of options that can set a powerful tone, and you might opt for a traditional song list, which there isn’t anything wrong with that.

But to make your wedding truly special, your songs can add a personal touch to your celebrations.

You can have the wedding of your dreams with songs that show your fun and whimsical side or the unique dynamic you have with your partner.

This way, you’ll have a wedding that is going to be memorable for a long time to come. Thank you for reading.
