There s nothing quite like music to take your emotions to a specific place when it comes to celebrating. You certainly have songs that bring you to special moments in your courtship: the song you both loved in high school, that one you danced to at Senior Prom, the song that reminded you of each other when you spent a semester apart, or the one you found out together when you were out on a night drive.
And surely, when the actual day shows up and you’re gonna say I do, you want to have the perfect soundtrack. From the tune selected for the bride and groom s first dance at the reception to the ones you’ve chosen for background music as people socialize, we preferred to bring some classic favorites to your mind, taking a retrospective glance to the 1980s and moving on to today.
Naturally there’s always the classic tunes like Nat King Cole s version of Unforgettable, the Temptations catchy My Girl, or Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight. And who can ignore Big Mountain s cover of Baby I Love Your Way? No question about it, we have a pretty good library of love songs at your fingertips.
