Misguided Song Selection
Often when selecting songs for use in your wedding ceremony or reception couples use the Song Name or a quick glance at the key words in the song to guide our selection. Here are a few misguided song selections to think twice about before slotting them into a key moment to remember at your wedding.
► “Marry You ” – Bruno Mars
A Song about being drunk with nothing better to do, so lets run off and married. Not exactly the love story of your wedding I’d assume.
► “Make You Feel My Love” – Adele
This song is about desperation, not necessarily true love.
► “I Will Always Love You” – Whitney Houston
Whitney, we’ll always love you, too, but this was actually written as a breakup song. [by dolly parton]
► “Better With The Lights Off” – New Boyz Ft. Chris Brown
Think about the one… Guys, your bride looks better with the lights off?
► “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” – Death Cab For Cutie
This one’s bound to get the waterworks going, but definitely not from happiness. Your wedding is the start of your new life together, not a time to be thinking about souls lost in limbo.
► “Just The Two Of Us” – Will Smith
Warning: This song is not actually about a couple—it’s about a father and son. This one will have you thinking more about Dr. Evil and Mini Me’s sweet duet in Austin Powers and less about you and your soul mate.
► “Always On My Mind ” – Elvis Presley
This song is trying to be sweet by saying that, even though you were a bum in the actual relationship, you were always thinking about the other person…
► “Beautiful Stranger ” – Madonna
I would hope that you two aren’t strangers anymore…
► “When I’m 64” – Beatles
Though many interpret this song as a sweet song about a couple’s lasting love, there is much debate about whether it was written sarcastically and is actually about deep boredom in the later years of life.
