Song Ideas for Your Wedding

While some people find the whole selecting songs for their wedding easy, as if they have had certain theme songs playing throughout their relationship - other people really struggle to think of any songs, whilst others have way too many to choose from and can't narrow it down. This is not a definitive list of songs - but perhaps it will be useful for someone who needs a bit of inspiration.

I've focused on only the most obvious song selections that people get stuck on - the processional, which is the walk up the aisle - which could also be used for signing of the register - so that's ceremony. Recessional, which is the exit of the ceremony - generally up-beat; and then the First Dance. The First Dance and Ceremony songs are pretty interchangeable - so feel free to mix them up.

While I have described their general feel above, there are no hard and fast rules with any of these.

Now I know that the really obvious options (Signed, Sealed, Delivered anyone?) are common knowledge and there is absolutely nothing wrong with those, but if you're stuck it's because none of those resonated with you. So these lists are less common based on my experience, but great options. 

These lists do include some covers, so they're a slightly different take on the originals to create something different in the feels.
