Here are some excellent song selections that you may want to consider for your big day.
The song’s title is the best adjective for it. Who can forget this great classic from Nat King Cole? It’s dubbed as one of the most romantic songs in the history of music recording. This can be played in your wedding with a piano or string quartet. It can also be done in a duet like what Nat King Cole’s daughter Natalie Cole did during the 90s with his father’s previous recordings. This specific stanza in the song won’t leave a dry eye in the room.
Unforgettable in every way,
And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am, Unforgettable too
From This Moment On
Shania Twain’s catapult to stardom is this wonderful country song. Even if you’re not into country melodies, give this song a chance. Listen to it even just once and you won’t help but feel your heart melt. The lyrics of the song make it perfect as a wedding ceremony song.
I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can’t wait to live my life with you, can’t wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you
From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn’t give
From this moment on
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The first time this song was heard by the public was in 1969 when it was sung by Roberta Flack in her album “First Take.” It was written in 1957 by Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger who later on became his wife. It was also popularized by other renowned music artists including Celine Dion and Leona Lewis. The lyrics would bring you back to the first time you laid your eyes upon your spouse-to-be and it would remind you of that incredible feeling of meeting the love of your life for the very first time.
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the night and the empty skies, my love
To the night and the empty skies
You Raise Me Up
Josh Groban’s You Raise Me Up is a religious song that’s also fit for a wedding ceremony. If you’re getting married in a conservative church, you’re more likely to get approval for this song than other contemporary options. It’s best to have this song performed with an organ. If that’s not possible, a string ensemble would do just fine. You’ll love this part of the song where it says:
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be
This is one of the most touching songs that you’ll ever hear in your lifetime. Also sung by Josh Groban in a duet with Charlotte Church, The Prayer can be interpreted as a call for God to guide you and your beau on your way to married life. Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion also has a version of this amazing song.
I pray you’ll be our eyes
And watch us where we go
And help us to be wise
In times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer
As we go our way
Lead us to a place
Guide us with your Grace
To a place where we’ll be safe
La luce che tu dai
