6 Overlooked Songs That You Might Want To Consider for Your Wedding

August 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The sun is up and the sky is blue. You thank God that it’s sunny today – that this day has the kind of weather that you wished for during the months of on-and-off preparation for this afternoon and evening. Flowers are hung, bunched up, and decorated. The people, especially you and your spouse-to-be just put on pressed formal attire. This is it. You exhale and whisper a silent prayer. This is it. I hope everything goes well today.

The guests are on their way, some of the seats in the hall are already occupied. You remember that you ticked the box that reminded you to hire wedding photography services to immortalize this day. Your mother is already crying as she sees you all dressed and ready. Well yeah, it’s just like any other day any other person outside the event, except it’s different for you and your spouse-to-be. It’s much much different. Today is special – it’s the union of two hearts. It’s your wedding day.

Not really. Not yet, at least. But that doesn’t stop you from preparing. With the flowers and the cake and the attire, you ready everything – especially your wedding songs. I’ve been there, and I’ve done that – imagining what songs you’ll play in your wedding even though you aren’t even engaged yet. It’s normal. Wedding songs are just as important as any other material aspect of your wedding day, but what are 7 good wedding songs you can consider to play or to have performed on your wedding? Everyone’s trying to avoid the “mainstream” so here’s a list to help you decide.

“Grace of My Life” by Brian Littrell.

It’s a pleasant song about love and unconditional love that’s undeserved but gratefully accepted. It’s pretty straight-forward, actually. Nothing says “you are special to me” than a song that directly says “you are the grace of my life.”

“I See The Light” from “Tangled” OST.

I mentioned something about relating your wedding day to a fairy tale, so why not use this one to actually make it as close to a fairy tale as possible? It’s one of the best songs I’ve ever heard from a Disney movie soundtrack, plus the message is pretty straight-forward. The vagueness and obscurity caused by patient waiting and anxious hopes and dreams all vanish one by one – at last, you see the light, and the fog has lifted.

“When We’re Together” by Mike Harris.

By who? I know what you’re thinking. There’s Google and YouTube for you to check it out. I did say overlooked, right? So I’m delivering my promise like a good man on his wedding night. It’s the soundtrack of a movie entitled “Courageous” and it’s pretty fun – it’s simple and direct. It’s a happy song that can be undoubtedly used for a dance.

“God Gave Me You” rendition by Emmanuelle Vera.

Who again? The song itself might be more familiar, but some renditions can actually be relatively defined as somewhat “better” than the original in a way. Search it on SoundCloud, it’s there. With something as simple as just a guitar, a majestic piano, and of course, the pure vocal talent, you can easily conclude that it’s worthy of your wedding day, and vice versa.

“Kiss” by TC & Sam Kang.

Yep, there’s an abundance of artists that you don’t know in this article, but that’s what I mean by “overlooked” – talent that deserves more attention and appreciation but not any less in romantic value at all. It’s a perfect song for a slow dance. It’s all guitar and it’s all good. It’s a song that more or less can be played in a prom, but that doesn’t make it exclusive at all. It’s on YouTube.

“Forever” rendition by Boyce Avenue.

Boyce avenue isn’t overlooked, they’re not underrated (anymore), but their cover of “Forever” is one of the many perfect songs to be the last song on your wedding day as the two of you walk down the aisle as husband and wife.

So it’s finished. The two of you march down the aisle. It’s finished. Rings on your fingers symbolize true love sealed by commitment within the pleasing favour in the eyes of God Who put you two together – the Author of your love story. Hold each other close.
