Wedding Songs Selection

Your music selection would determine the mood and the ambiance of the night. You would want a classic that everyone knows by heart and would sing along to. The compilation of the right combination of both classic and modern love songs is a fun, yet tedious process. I enjoy attending weddings, where there are no karaoke machines involved. Some things are better left to the professionals than for the guests to pick a microphone and blast the audio system. I am sure most of you had childhood memories of a wedding where the guests brought their favourite karaoke songs to the dinner and attempts to serenade the wedding couple.

As we grow older, we move away from that tradition because the right music would make the night memorable. I’ve attending a wedding recently where the groom’s father and uncles were from a boy band back in the 80s and offered their skills to the wedding. It was lovely evening as each of them took a role in the musical instruments with the groom’s dad as the vocalist.

  1. Two is Better than One – Boys Like Girls feat. Taylor Swift
  2. A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
  3. Ye Liang Tai Piao We De Xin
  4. From This Moment – Shania Twain

  6. Can’t Help Falling in Love – Elvis Presley
  7. For A Moment Like This – Kelly Clarkson
  8. Wonderful Tonight – Eric Clapton
  9. All I Ask of You – Phantom of the Opera
  10. When I Fall in Love – Nat King Cole
  11. Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars
  12. I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – Aerosmith
  13. Truly Madly Deeply – Savage Garden
  14. Come Away With Me – Nora Jones
  15. Because Of You – Ne-Yo
  16. Because You Loved Me – Celine Dion
  17. Can You Feel The Love Tonight – Elton John
  18. Close to You – Carpenters
  19. Endless Love – Diana Rose & Lional Richie
  20. Grow Old With Me – Mary Chapin Carpenter
  21. One Moment in Time – Whitney Houston
  22. The Best is Yet To Come – Frank Sinatra
  23. Flightless Bird – Iron and Wine
  24. Turning Page – Sleeping at Last
  25. Here and Now – Luther Vandross


Picture1The first time I heard the song Flightless Bird by Iron and Wine was during the wedding scene of Twilight: Breaking Dawn. If you witnessed the wedding on screen, you would remember a song played in the background that caught my attention.

Today, professional singers are hired to perform. It can be quite a challenge finding the right band for your wedding theme. You would want someone who is melodious and soothing, rather than loud and power pack.
