Its’ sometimes hard for couples to come up with any wedding song ideas. We all know just how important music is when creating the perfect atmosphere. It’s a nerve-wracking moment walking down the aisle or getting up for your first dance, so you need the ideal song to make you feel comfortable, happy and calm.
You may want a beautiful piece of classical music, or to use ‘your song’ that every couple has – something that reminds you of your relationship so far.
All of Me – Jon Legend Of course, this had to be in the list. This beautiful ballad is the perfect choice for uniting two people in love. In marriage you are giving yourself to one another, accepting all their imperfections and quirks and loving them endlessly. All of Me really captures this atmosphere.
I do Adore – Mindy Gledhill Although quite unknown, Mindy Gledhill’s I Do Adore is the ideal song for anyone who’s not particularly good at saying how they feel. The cute lyrics are structured perfectly to describe the way we all fall in love.
Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran’s Thinking out Loud is another great choice for the first dance. Its raw sound and beautiful words are enough to make anyone feel entirely head over heels.
A Thousand Years – Glee Cast Whilst Cristina Perri’s original of A Thousand Years is a beautiful piece, Glee managed to create a smooth, romantic, two-part copy which works even better for a first dance song. With its fairytale style and lovely words, the song is must.
How Long Will I Love You – Ellie Goulding
From the soundtrack on one of last year’s most romantic films – About Time – Ellie Goulding’s How Long Will I Love You is calm, soft and gentle in its sound and poetic wording.
You Are the Best Thing – Ray LaMontagne Lastly, a new favourite: In a new marriage, one of the best feelings is coming home after a long or stressful day and knowing the one you love is there waiting for you. That’s what this upbeat, jazzy song is all about. Its brass band backing track and LaMontagne’s husky and raw voice are the perfect combination for a happy and loved up atmosphere.
Of course, the main wedding song needs to be your choice. It should mean something to the both of you and capture your feelings and relationship entirely. It should emphasise happiness and acceptance, unity and fun – because after all, that’s what it’s all about.
