Most couples want at least a little input into what their DJ or band plays at their wedding. However, starting a list of wedding songs can seem like a daunting task. There are many great resources for putting together your wedding ceremony music and wedding reception music. For starters, your DJ or band may offer a printed list pf top wedding songs or access to an online database of wedding music. iTunes users can browse a variety of pre-assembled lists by genre, including wedding love songs.
The following sites may be very helpful as you select wedding dance songs.
This subsection of the extremely popular and well-designed WeddingWire.com is, by far, one of the most exhaustive wedding music lists online. As such, couples should have plenty of time on their hands before beginning to explore, as the task can be a little daunting! With lots of added features such as embedded YouTube videos, song lyrics, and user comments, this may be the only music planning resource you ever need.
OurWeddingSongs provides lists of suggested wedding ceremony music and wedding reception music, broken down into subcategories including wedding procession music, first wedding dance songs, father daughter wedding songs, and more. Users of the site can submit suggestions, and songs contain links to the lyrics -- it''s always a good idea to check these out!
Top Wedding Songs also breaks down its suggestions into easy-to-navigate categories with links to the song lyrics right on the site. Its lists of father daughter wedding songs and mother son wedding songs are especially helpful, and it also offers a more thorough list of wedding ceremony music than many sites.
Our Bridal Songs is a wedding music site with some very helpful features, such as a widget that plays song samples and a click-to-buy link to Amazon.com. Users can also add their preferred songs to a "short list" to refer to as they continue your planning. The site isn't the best organized, however, and it can take a long time to find songs that one actually likes when wading through thousands of seemingly random selections.
Songs for a Wedding is a simple, elegant site that lacks something all of the other sites feature prominently: ads! It's also extremely easy to navigate and is organized both by wedding traditions (such as first dance wedding songs or father daughter wedding songs) and by genre of music. Like WeddingWire, Songs for a Wedding also includes embedded YouTube videos, song lyrics and user comments, and is a great resource overall.
