Selecting Wedding SongsBy John Michael Anderson
One of the most important parts of wedding planning is selecting from a variety of wedding songs. As is traditional, most newlywed couples have a special wedding song that is played as they share their first dance as husband and wife. Wedding songs are often played throughout the reception as a way of inviting guests to dance, enjoy the afternoon and have fun.
Wedding songs are generally selected by both the bride and groom and usually convey a message that is relevant to their feelings or is simply a song that reminds them of a special time in their relationship, which may include the first song they ever danced to, the song that was playing on the radio as they share their first kiss, etc. Whether it be a special moment or a song that takes them back to a special time in their lives, wedding songs will serve as a special tune that will follow the newlyweds all throughout their married lives as a reminder of the special day during which they took their vows.
There are many factors to consider when choosing wedding songs, including personal taste. If both the bride and groom prefer country music, perhaps one of the many popular country wedding songs would be appropriate. If their preference is oldies, there is certainly no shortage of love songs there. The ultimate style of wedding songs will often be reliant upon the preference of the newlyweds.
While at the reception, guests often enjoy a variety of wedding songs that are played while everyone dances. The best way to select the wedding songs is for the bride and groom to get together with their favorite music CDs and decide which is their favorite for the special day. This will include making a list of favorite wedding songs, listening to each one and discussing whether or not they should be played at the reception.
If a professional DJ is hired for the wedding reception, he/she will need to have the list of wedding songs that the bride and groom have prepared and possibly may even need the CDs that feature the songs. This is possible if the DJ does not have that particular song in their collection and may need to borrow the bride or groom's CD for the afternoon.
As a final thought to selecting wedding songs, they can be either slow or upbeat. The decision on which is completely up to the bride and groom, who will want every decision to be mutual so that each will have input into the day and how it unfolds.
