When you attend a wedding, sometimes you can make a relatively good guess, about what song the new couple will dance to, even what song the groom will dance to with his mother. Especially if we know the couple well, it is easy to guess what their music selection for their entire wedding may be. Why not turn the tables and keep them guessing and select one of these songs below for your wedding. They are unique in their own way, yet perfect for your special day.
“Forever” by Chris Brown
This song was an instant hit on Youtube when a video was shown with a bridal party dancing their way down the church aisle to this song! You could easily use this song when the bridal party would make their entrance into the reception.
“I Hope You Dance” by Lee Ann Womack
This is an upbeat country song, with a modern twist! No tears will be shed, just pure happiness will be felt when the bride dances with her father, or when the groom dances with his mother. Although the word “dance” is used, the overall meaning of the song means to enjoy life. This would be a perfect cheerful song for either the bride or groom.
“Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder
A classic and perfect song for a father daughter dance at the wedding reception. It is such a bubbly song, you might even get all the guests up out of their seats for this one!
“How’ve You Grown” by 10,000 Maniacs
Another unique song for a bride to dance with her father to or even for the groom to dance with his mother to. This song really brings together everything that words can not express on this special day.
“You & Me” by Dave Matthews Band
For those couples looking for a unique first dance song, this is it! Not only is it romantic, but it really reflects on how marriage is a partnership!
“Too Good To Be True” by Lauren Hill
This Frankie Valli classic is beautifully redone with a soulful twist by Lauren Hill. This song really adds that fairy-tale touch to the wedding day.
“Better Together” by Jack Johnson
Jack Johnson is one of those mellow artists that use such beautiful lyrics! This upbeat, yet sweet song would be ideal to choose for a bride and groom’s first dance together.
“Truly, Madly, Deeply” by Savage Garden
Savage Garden’s “Truly, Madly, Deeply” is not only quite a passionate song, but it’s about how the bride and groom’s love for one another is endless.
As you can see, choosing more upbeat songs to any wedding, adds that uniqueness. Guests at the wedding don’t have to necessarily cry when they hear that sentimental song being played, rather the guests can actually be up and out of their seats celebrating with the bride, groom and the rest of the family on this special day!
