There is a marvelous web site that has a huge collection of romantic wedding songs. The collection is divided into prelude songs, processional songs, bride entrance songs, interlude songs, recessional songs, and postlude songs for the wedding ceremony itself. Then, for the reception there are first dance songs, mother and son dance songs, father and daughter dance songs, cake cutting songs, and last dance songs. Go to this web site to find them all: http://www.weddingwire.com/wedding-songs
What any bride and groom want is the completely romantic song, one that takes them to a level of excitement and happiness on the day of the ceremony, and continues the thrill throughout the occasion. Songs that envelope the guests, friends and family, and bring smiles as well as tears of joy from the parents and loved ones. Songs such as “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion, “All My Tomorrows” by Kenny Lattimore, “Down the Aisle” by Patti LaBelle, “Destiny” by Jim Brickman and Michelle Wright, “Everytime I Close My Eyes” by Babyface, and “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones are all guaranteed to weave a spell over everyone and seal the feelings of devotion and love between the bride and groom. .
At the reception, the variety of songs can be a bit wider, with pop or rock tunes coming into the mix, with the musical tastes of the couple clearly reflected. Whatever type of music they prefer, whether it be new wave, rap, international instrumentals such as those by Yanni, or country tunes a la Kenney Chesney or the Dixie Chicks. Maybe the couple is into gothic, or classical, or heavy metal. Some of these types of music are great for the reception, when the newlyweds can break loose and show some personality.
Now: the perfect song for the removal of the garter. It should be a bit sexy, and very fun. The song “It’s Business Time” by the Flight of the Concords, is just the thing. You will get a ton of laughs with this one. Part of the lyrics are below; you can go to this link to see the song as performed by the group: http://www.weddingwire.com/wedding-songs/garter-removal-music/business-time/fda7b0d0190aac48.html
Lyrics: It’s Business Time by Flight of the Concords (in part):
Girl tonight we’re gonna make love
You know how I know?
Because it’s Wednesday
And Wednesday night is the night that we usually make love
Monday night is my night to cook
Tuesday night we go and visit your mother
But Wednesday we make sweet little love
When everything is just right
There’s nothing good on tv
You haven’t had your after work social sport team practice
So you are not too tired
Oh, boy, it’s all love
You lean in and whisper something sexy like,
“I might go to bed. I’ve got work in the morning.”
I know what you’re trying to say baby.
You’re trying to say “Aww, yeah. It’s business time.
It’s business time
I know what you’re trying to say
You’re trying to say it’s time for business,
it’s business time, oooh
It’s business time
Aww ohooowoah yeah, yeah
The lyrics go on to funnier comments about making love as a couple, with all the settled in comfort that couples have with one another. It is pure fun, pure laughs. Another great song for the garter removal is “Escape: the Pina Colada Song”, by Jimmy Buffett. That one has the funny twist of connecting two lovers who thought they were finding someone new. Ha ! What a fun song for a wedding. Go for it. Have all the romance and fun you want at your wedding. It is, after all, your day.
