You must be aware of the classical piece, such as a ‘wedding march.’ Everyone has their reason for this choice. For some, it can have a personal significance, as it was the song played at the wedding of a close relative, and they connected to it. For others, it can be a symbol of love and happiness. Regardless of the reasons, the iconic piece makes for a beautiful and memorable moment greeting the bride and groom, who walk the path with much anticipation and overwhelming emotions. Anyway, you can choose any love song, hymn, or instrumental piece. It depends on personal preferences mainly in the end.
First kiss/ Reception
Many great songs would be perfect for your first kiss. Some of the favorites include Etta James’ “At Last,” Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years,” and Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” These incredibly romantic songs can set the mood for a perfect first kiss. Plus, these classics never go out of style. The pieces will still feel fresh when you play the wedding video to make your memories come alive when you age. So no matter what year it is, these songs are for a newlywed couple’s first kiss.
This specific ceremony is about looking forward to new beginnings, joyful moments, eternal love, and more. The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” can be about a new journey. So, it can be an ideal pick when you are starting a new life together. Or, you may want to exit with a more upbeat tune. In that case, Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered” can be something to elevate the mood and conclude your ceremony on a high. However, if you want the feeling of love to be on top of everything else, Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” can express it all by being a timeless ballad.
You can discuss all these and more with your live music band and consider their opinions. They can help with the theme and music genres that best suit your personality and the intended wedding atmosphere that you wish to create.
