Everyone has a favorite wedding song. Outside of the typical wedding march, all of the other songs are chosen by the couple for their nuptials. The music enhances the mood of the wedding, so you want it to be a perfect match.
Some couples make the mistake of choosing a song because the singer is one of their favorites and it seems mellow enough. Then once they stop and listen, they realize that on their wedding day, they’re playing a song about heartbreak. Talk about mismatch.
A modern favorite for the father and daughter dance is the song Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle. It’s a beautiful song about a father and how he feels as he recalls watching his daughter grow up. Each night she would give him little kisses before she’d nod off to sleep. The song says: “With all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.”
The song Unforgettable by Natalie Cole and her father, Nat King Cole, is a favorite for the first dance. Isn’t it so true for the newlyweds? You married the person who was most unforgettable to you. Best of all, as the Coles sing it: “That’s why darling, it’s incredible that someone so unforgettable thinks that I am unforgettable too.” How’s that for a romantic touch? Watch the video below (isn’t it GREAT!)…
Looking for a great song to end your wedding party with? Try the legendary song by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes called I’ve Had the Time of My Life. It’s a beautiful song taken from a wonderful movie. It starts slowly but builds up to a great rhythmic beat that will get your guests up on the dance floor. Plus they’ll leave your party singing: “I’ve had the time of my life and I’ve never felt this way before and I swear it’s so true and I owe it all to you.” What better way to end your wedding day than that?
