Tip from the Music Mama:  Did you ever get a song stuck in  your head, and couldn’t get it out? (Maybe like the theme song from Barney or “Fruit Salad” by the Wiggles?  Sing “Happy Birthday” to yourself or out loud! It will replace the song you’ve had stuck in your head, and it will go away quickly, just like it always does. Try it!

  1. The songs at my wedding were “The Lord’s Prayer”, “Have I Told You Lately” (Rod Stewart), and “Forever’s as Far As I’ll Go” (Alabama).

  2. We had Celine Dion’s “Because you loved me” and “I am your angel” as our main songs. They played along with a slide show of pictures of our life leading up to when we met and then many pictures of us together doing activities such as out first Valentines together, playing miniature golf etc.. I’m a huge Celine Dion fan. My sisters getting married in 2 weeks!!! And I hope that she uses the two same songs at some point during the reception. They were good luck for me and my husband and we will have been married for 5 years on June 25th!

  3. We played “At Last” by Etta James at our wedding. I love that song. It was the perfect touch to a love that came along with someone I had known my whole life. We both had searched long and hard for that special someone when all along it was right under our noses! Love is a funny thing!

  4. Aww. I am not married so I don’t have a wedding song, but I liked the idea of Bocelli’s Con Te Partiro. Especially sung by him! Okay, okay dream on. Some pretty great choices here.

  5. When we entered our reception we had, “Forever and Ever Amen” by Randy Travis playing. It is special to us because that is what we both had engraved on one another’s wedding bands without knowing that is what the other had chosen to do too.

  6. We eloped so we didn’t have any music. LOL I have heard many beautiful and some unexpected songs at weddings.

  7. My music did not work at my wedding at first. But just in time for me to walk down the aisle it turned on and I walked into John Lennon’s Grow Old With Me. It was perfect!

  8. I had the song “Longer”, by Dan Fogelberg sung during my wedding. Unfortunately, the pianist was drunk, and played the song on one key, while his wife sang in a different key. When they finally figured out that things were off, they both switched to the other’s key, and were still off! I laughed and cried at the same time, but I still love that song.

  9. We played “Me And You” by Kenny Chesney at our wedding. It’s the song that just happened to come on the radio as my husband was proposing to me. Sometimes “our” song pils us instead of us picking a song.

  10. “You Raise Me Up” by Josh Grobin was sung at my wedding and is engraved in my husband’s wedding band!

  11. Our wedding song was “If You Could See What I See” by Geoff Moore. 10 years ago on June 24th!

  12. This is horrible, but I don’t remember the songs that were played! I do remember dancing with my dad to “Butterfly Kisses”. Ha!!

  13. We were married in a very small chapel with a handful of people present. We didn’t have any music, except for the wedding march!

  14. I don’t really care for songs at weddings. I mean really it is like a song during romantic movie, only hopefully there is not an unpredictable plot twist.

  15. Some of my favorite wedding songs are:

    1. Amazed – By Lonestar
    2. Still the One – By Shania Twain
    3. Valentine – Martina McBride
    4. Me & You – Kenny Chesney
