How to Pick the Perfect Songs for your Wedding Day
There’s so many wonderful elements that make up a wedding ceremony, and it's the fusion of all these special little details that combine to make up a spectacular day. The music that’s played during your ceremony is another chance for you to add your own special, unique flair to the evening’s celebrations with your loved ones.
These songs will add a sense of your personalities to the day, and really pay a great homage to who you guys are as a couple. In this blog, we’ll provide you with a few fun ideas and inspiration points to help you come up with the perfect playlist for your wedding celebration.
Pen and paper at the ready!
We may be stuck in lockdown at the moment, but this provides you with ample time for brainstorming. So sit down and spend a bit of chill time in front of the TV drawing up a list of your favorites. Without thinking of anyone else’s preferences (or getting embarrassed at any cheesy hits!) write up your personal favorite songs. These can be ones that mean something special to you or make you feel happy (even if you don’t necessarily have a specific reason for it) - this will leave you with a great mix of fun and silly songs, and moving love songs too.
Songs that represent your relationship
From here, you can think about songs that represent key stages in your relationship. These can tie in to all different kinds of sentimental moments for you - the song played at your first date, any concerts or artists that you’ve seen together, lyrics that mean something to you, or the songs that you always play together in the car.
Get your guests involved
If you’re drawing up your playlist, you could even get your guests involved and get their contributions too. Get in touch with them and ask them to suggest one or two songs that are their personal favorites and really mean something to them. What are the songs that are really special to your parents? Ask them what song they had their first dance to? Or, you could even ask your parents the same questions that you asked yourself in our point number two!
These steps will help fill your reception with life and energy, in a way that is truly unique to you as a couple. Throughout the evening, the music that fills the venue will provide a beautiful testament to you both - a playlist filled with stories, moments and fun.
