Old Time Favorite Wedding Songs

Old Time Favorite Wedding Songs

Wedding music contains the power to set the tone for the entire occasion. These songs will forever be a remembrance of the day you and your betrothed tied the knot. You want your song selections to be unique and upbeat while still keeping with music that generally appeals to your guests. This reason is why many brides-to-be select songs from decades past.

What Are The Best Older Songs For These Ten Momentous Wedding Moments?

1. Processional

We hear the processional song when the wedding party enters. In years past, you heard instrumental music during this time. Now you possess the ability to switch it up for your wedding when you choose to disco on into your ceremony with this great:

“September”- Earth, Wind & Fire

2. Bridal Processional

We often hear, “Here Comes The Bride” when the bride enters the ceremony. However, imagine floating down the aisle to this a capella version of the famous Leonard Cohen song:

“Hallelujah”- Pentatonix

3. Recessional

The recessional song gets played when you exit the ceremony as husband and wife. This song is aptly named:

“Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours”- Stevie Wonder

4. Reception Entrance

The reception entrance song gets played when you enter the reception as Mr. and Mrs. for the first time. This song marks the start of the party, so it should be upbeat:

“Crazy Little Thing Called Love”- Queen

5. First Dance

Your first dance as a couple is a very sentimental moment. You can choose to rock it or play your particular song, but if you don’t have a specific couple’s song, this one is a first dance favorite:

“I Wanna Dance With Somebody”- Whitney Houston

6. Father/Daughter Dance

Parent dances usually follow the first dance at the reception. Typically sentimental because you’re daddy’s little girl, but an upbeat song like this one usually softens the sting of giving you away:

“My Girl”- The Temptation

7. Mother/Son Dance

The mother/son dance is another usually sentimental dance, but throw that notion away and imagine your husband and his mother getting down to this oldie fave:

“Mama Told Me”- Three Dog Night

8. Bouquet Toss

Typically, the bouquet toss is when the ladies get wild diving for the bride’s bouquet. This song is a wedding favorite:

“Ladies Night”- Kool & The Gang

9. Garter Toss

When the groom gets a little naughty reaching for the garter, this song should be sexy but acceptable for a mixed crowd. We found this oldie tastefully sultry for the occasion:

“P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)”- Michael Jackson

10. The Last Dance

Go out with a bang and create the last dance your friends and relatives won’t soon forget. This song helps your wedding end on a positive, fun note:

“Jump In The Line Shake, Senora”- Harry Belafonte
