Why should you be concerned with popular wedding songs? Weddings are a time of great joy. This is when people get the chance to celebrate their love with their closest friends and family. There are a lot of things that you need to think about when you are doing the planning process. You may spend a lot of time thinking about the type of dress that you are going to wear or what your colors will be. However, a lot of people seem to overlook an important aspect of their wedding: the music. This music will set the tone of your wedding and it should definitely not be overlooked.
Here are some of the top trends in wedding songs this year:
Adele became famous for her songs about heartbreak, like “Someone Like You” or “Turning Tables”. With her most recent (and highly anticipated) new album, she gives fans a whole slew of love ballads, especially this song. Consider it for a first dance or a cake cutting song.
Bruno Mars, “Marry You”
This is a great song to just get people out on the dance floor. Bruno Mars is always a popular choice for his catchy lyrics and great tunes that really inspire movement in listeners.
One Direction, “I Want to Write You a Song”
This is a song that can be placed anywhere really in the major dances of the night. Some people like this option for the father/daughter dance while some enjoy it for the bridal party’s big dance.
Justin Timberlake, “Can’t Stop the Feeling”
This was one of the most popular hits the minute it was released. This is another excellent song that can be chosen for a couple of different occasions.
