When you think of romantic wedding songs, which ones come to mind? When we were planning our wedding reception, my husband and I had a really hard time picking a song for our first dance. If you’re in the same boat and are looking for a first-dance or processional song, here’s part of my list.
BUTTERFLY KISSES – BOB CARLISLE
This is a very touching father-daughter dance song. I think the fact that the last part is about giving his daughter away at her wedding makes this one especially appropriate.
JUST SAY YOU’LL LOVE ME -CHICAGO
There’s no question that Chicago can spin a good love song, but this one is perfect for a wedding from beginning to end.
I SWEAR – JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY
One big reason I love this song for a wedding is that it truly talks about having a life together.
FROM THIS MOMENT – SHANIA TWAIN
“From this moment, life has begun/from this moment, you are the one/right beside you is where I belong/from this moment on.” Oh! I super love the message of this song.
HERE AND NOW – LUTHER VANDROSS
It’s a shame he’s not around to make any more of his soulful ballads, but this song is dead-on to what wedding vows should sound like. I’d have sung it to my husband, but I can’t carry a tune in a bucket.
If you consider what marriage is about – a lifetime commitment to the one you love – these romantic wedding songs speak for themselves. On a side note, I want to thank my sister for this awesome e commerce workflow.
