I picked "Northern Wind" by City and Colour. City and Colour is one of those bands that I will love forever. Dallas Green's songs are so sweet and romantic. I'm not the only one that thinks this because when I saw them at Red Rocks, six people got engaged during the song "the Girl". I think this song would melt my heart (and everyone else too) if it were played at a wedding.
Erica of Sweets and Hearts - "You've Got the Love" by Florence + the Machine
Don't get me wrong--I love jazzy standards and classic oldies at weddings like everyone else (Sinatra, anyone?), but Florence + the Machine's "You've Got the Love" would be absolutely refreshing and fun for a wedding too! It's a little unconventional--which is probably why I like it--but it's definitely one of those songs that's bound to put everyone in a good mood.
Jen of JennifHsieh - "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic ZerosThis song gets me every time. Besides the fact that this song is all around perfect, I picked it because it has special meaning to me. I would always play this song in the car while I drove and it was my anthem last summer. In August, a month before my boyfriend left to teach abroad for ten months, I was blasting this song while he drove and he surprised me by singing the guy's part and my heart melted into the biggest puddle. He'll be back home in a week now and I can't wait to be home with him again.
Jenna of Smitten - "Harvest Moon" by Neil Young
I picked Neil Young's "Harvest moon", because Neil is one of my all time favourite artists. This song is slow and romantic, and the sentiment is of people who have been in love for quite a while. Not to mention the fact that the music video is of Neil and his wife dancing together. I've always thought that if I did ever decide to tie the knot I'd love to dance to this song.
Dus of Cuddly Cacti - "All the Single Ladies" by Beyonce
I can't take credit for this idea; a friend of mine went to a wedding where this was played for the bouquet toss and I thought it was just perfect and kind of hilarious. That's all. I'm not even really a Beyonce fan, well except when she was in Destiny's Child and I was 13 but I'm diverting from the wedding topic.
Elana of Room 334 - "Never Gonna Give You Up" by The Black Keys
It's not just that The Black Keys is one of my favorite bands, but there's just something about this song that I can just imagine playing when things are starting to slow down. Not to be confused with the Rick Astley song of the same name (although let's be honest, there's always time to Rick Roll your guests at a wedding), this song about a guy being badly hurt by his girlfriend may not seem like the obvious pick, but there's still something romantic about him loving her no matter how badly she treats him. Right? Okay, I just really like this song.
Jessi of Haircut & General Attitude - "Question" by the Old 97's
Ok, this one is more of a cute "engagement song" since it's about popping the question, but I actually played it at my wedding reception along with an eclectic mix of lots of my other favorite love songs. The lyrics are so sweet and perfectly fitting for a wedding!
