Best Classic Wedding Songs
Weddings naturally make people giddy and elated as they celebrate the union of two people who have found each other against all the odds. If you think that it does not get better than it, think again. There are a few more ways by which weddings can become more romantic, such as adding great tunes for the event.
Classic wedding songs are a good addition to the ceremony as well as the reception. From the moment that the bride and groom walks down the aisle, music plays a very important role in setting the mood. Picking the rights songs is essential to make the wedding as romantic and memorable as possible.

Tips on Choosing Wedding Songs
- Each part of the wedding ceremony has to have an appropriate accompaniment starting with the procession up to the bridal bouquet toss.
- While CDs are very practical, they can be unreliable as well. You might want to consider hiring a wedding singer/s or have a band or a string quartet play the songs for the event.
- You might be the couple who despises songs that are too dreary so make sure that you screen all the songs to be played way before the event.
- Meet with the wedding singer or band so that you can instruct them as to which songs you want for the wedding. Blocking is very important as well so let the singer or the band know before hand.
- You do not always have to go for the mushy stuff. There are songs that are just as sentimental without having to be too “The Way We Were”. In fact, these days, it is perfectly acceptable to play rock songs in wedding ceremonies as well as in receptions.
- If you or your spouse have the voice that can be allowed outside the shower, you definitely should consider taking the mic for at least one song. Some brides have been known to sing while marching down the aisle.
