Pay Close Attention To The Lyrics Of Your Wedding Songs



After everyone has suggested their favorite tunes for your wedding, make sure you, as a couple, make the final choice of music that will accompany your nuptials. Remember that the purpose of this element in your wedding is to enhance the overall feeling or mood of the event. If you know what your theme is you’ll be better informed and it will be easier to match the music to the environment you wish to convey to your families and guests.

Be wary of selecting a tune by one of your favorite singers. If you listen carefully you may discover that the seeming mellow, unobtrusive melody and message is conveying heartbreak--clearly not the message you want to portray on what's supposed to be the happiest occasion of your life. If either of you suspects as much, take the time to discuss your perceptions in order to avoid the mismatch.

You may be familiar with Bob Carlisle’s “Butterfly Kisses”: a dance tune normally reserved for the father and daughter to dance to. This is a splendid number about a father’s sentiments as he envisions his daughter growing up. He recollects how each evening she’d kiss him prior to falling asleep – as part of the lyric informs: “With all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.”

The remixed duet of “Unforgettable” by Natalie and Nat Cole is commonly favored as the initial dance number. Fitting is it not? After all the two of you are marrying the one who is truly unforgettable! The best and, of course most romantic line is: “That's why darling, it's incredible that someone so unforgettable thinks that I am unforgettable too."

Don’t neglect to end your party with an equally fabulous song. How about “I’ve had the Time of My Life” by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes? This is a perfect end-of-the-festivities tune taken from a wonderful film. The tempo begins easily and gradually quickens to a beat that will bring all of your (now one big happy family) and friends to the floor and will have them singing in affirmation and gratitude: “I’ve had the time of my life and I’ve never felt this way before and I swear it’s so true and I owe it all to you.”

Hopefully this will spur some ideas for your own wedding. If not, don't be afraid to consult with your married friends and relatives--who have likely had to make the same sorts of decisions you're making.
