All couples dream that their wedding day will be truly successful and memorable. That is why careful consideration of all the details must be attended to-including the selection of a perfect wedding song. After all, wedding songs set the mood and tone for the entire wedding, during the ceremony proper and the reception as well.
But, how do couples choose a song or songs to be included in their wedding. It is not a problem if a couple already has picked a “theme song” during the duration of their relationship. But, what if you don’t have any song in mind, and the wedding is fast approaching. Below are some wedding song ideas which can help couples out there in search of a good wedding song.
The most important song during wedding ceremony would be the song during the processional. Gone are the days of the “Here Comes the Bride” hymn. Couples usually select a wedding song that narrates their love story. It is very romantic to see during the ceremony’s processional that the bride is walking down the isle with a significant song being played or sang. If the couple could get a good choir or a singer to sing that particular song, it would definitely be a plus. If you do not have a theme song for each other, you could listen to several love story movie soundtracks. Without a doubt, you’ll find a perfect song for each other in no time.
The three most important part of the reception which requires good song choices would be the First Dance, Father-Daughter Dance, and Bouquet Toss Songs.
First Dance Songs The first dance song is one of the most touching moments for the couple at the reception. They should choose a song which has a sense of importance for the both of them. Remember that this should be a love song or a ballad because this is a dance which sets a romantic atmosphere.
Father-Daughter Dance Songs This is another tear-jerker moment at the reception. Remember that a daughter remains a baby in the eyes of the father. No matter what age the bride has chosen to get hitch, the father will surely be having a hard time letting go of his daughter. And, this is the time where the father will realize that his daughter will not be always around him anymore. Choose a slow song which signifies the father-daughter relationship.
Tossing of Bouquet Songs This is a segment where single ladies fall in line to catch the bride’s bouquet. Catching the bouquet will mean the end of their singlehood and this is a big deal for any single woman. A drum roll is fine but a catchy fast tune is preferable. For today’s generation, Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” seems to be a very popular choice.
