Wedding Song Library

Of all of the meaningful pieces that make a wedding special, perhaps the most meaningful piece is the music selection. Like a soundtrack can set the tone for a movie, the music selection for the special day can go a long way toward making it feel traditional, modern, fun, or whatever best reflects the two people joining together in matrimony.

For most weddings, the only time the music stops is during the ceremony itself; otherwise, it’s the backdrop for the whole day, even if it’s incidental music being played softly in the background during the reception dinner. Some people don’t even consider the music – they hire a DJ or a band and leave it to the musicians’ discretion. Those who decide to go with their own musical selections have a vast array of choices, but there are specific points throughout the event that call for specific music. Those specific points are broken down below, along with sample songs that you’ll hear a lot.

Wedding Songs

Songs for Grooms and Moms

During the reception, there will be a song set aside during which the groom will dance with his mother. It’s usually a very sweet and sentimental selection.
