Creating A Wedding Song for Your Bride
Husbands-to-be, if you want to know how you can truly
make your wedding day the most amazing it can be, full
of meaning for your future wife, consider composing
your own personal song for her--to be sang at the wedding.
This song can then not only be sung on that day, but
on romantic events in the future such as your anniversary
or Valentine's Day, when you want to remind yourselves
of your love for one another.
But what are the keys to writing a memorable song?
There are five keys you should keep in mind.
Key number 1: Write a list. On this list, you want
to write four or five traits that you love and admire
in your bride. This could include her sense of humor,
her kindness to others, her listening skills--whatever.
Also on the list, write all the things that you know
your bride loves.
What's her favorite color, her favorite
food, what does she love to do for a hobby, where does
she love to visit? Based on this list, you'll know some
things you can include in the song that will make it
truly about your bride and nobody else.
Key number 2: Begin writing the song, filling it with
emotion. How? Focus on your wife's best characteristics
and write about them. But don't stop there; mention
how much these traits mean to you. You might have trouble
rhyming words, but fortunately there are rhyming sites
online that can help you.
Key number 3: Keep the song simple. The words should
be easy to remember, easy to sing...and the tune should
be in keys that are easy to reach. Give the songs a
refrain and at least two verses.
Key number 4: Speaking of the tune, it's okay to borrow
a melody for your song, as long as you never try to
sell it or claim it as your own. One suggestion is to
find out what romantic song your bride likes, then borrow
that tune, but give it your own words. However, if you
feel up to the challenge and really think you can do
it, go ahead and try to come up with your own unique,
Key number 5: And finally, the most important part
has come: It's time to sing your new song to your bride.
It does not good to write a new song for your bride
if you're just going to put it away and never let her
hear it. But then, go even further: Frame the lyrics
in an attractive frame. This will be a truly cherished
memento of your dating days and wedding.
Creating your own personal song will take some time
and work and yes, some creativity. But it's worth the
risk. Nothing else you can do at your wedding will touch
her as much as this.
