Best Wedding Song List
For your wedding, you’ll need to make a wedding song list for the ceremony and reception.
Perhaps you’ve already thought about your first dance as a married couple, or the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances. But that’s what most people overlook when planning their wedding music: there’s so much more to it than the traditional dances. There’s the song you’ll be announced to, the cake cutting music, dinner music, etc.
Here are some areas where you’ll need to pick music to accompany it.
First, you’ll need music for your ceremony. If you’re planning a wedding inside a place of worship, you may already be meeting with a music coordinator to arrange the songs. However, if you’re planning your own ceremony in a non-traditional venue, you’ll need musicians or a DJ to play music for the procession, recession, and any other places you’d like music to be played (like a unity ceremony or special moment of prayer).
Here are the main three areas where ceremony music is needed.
In addition to the ceremony, you’ll obviously need music for the big party: your reception! In addition to dinner music and dancing, there’s plenty of time at the reception where you’ll need to change up the song, depending on what’s happening (i.e. announcement of the couple, cake cutting, garter removal, and more).
Here’s a comprehensive list of reception music you’ll need to choose for your celebration. Your hired band or DJ can assist in offering selections; however, you’ll be best prepared at your meeting if you already have some of your favorites picked out for the following.
-Bouquet Toss Songs
-Cake Cutting Songs
-Father Daughter Songs
-Father Son Songs
-First Dance Songs
-Garter Removal Songs
-Garter Toss Songs
-Garter Placement Songs
-Group Dance Songs
-Last Dance Songs
-Mother Daughter Songs
-Mother Son Songs
-Songs Not To Play
-Wedding Party Songs
… and more! You can see the complete list here.
