Music is an important part of any wedding reception. It sets the mood for the celebration and invites people to come dance. But first, the couple has to make some big decisions - what songs to pick for the walk down the aisle, the first dance, or the cake cutting. Everyone will be paying attention, and there are so many songs to choose from. Where do you even begin?
Big City Bride has planned a lot of Chicago receptions. So of course we have our favorite songs... and we’ve compiled a list! Take a listen on Youtube by clicking on the title of each song.
Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat
The Luckiest by Ben Folds
The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson
If you’re looking for a more old school feel, try these:
Someone Like You by Van Morrison
You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne
The bouquet and garter tosses also need a soundtrack. These can be funnier, so get creative!
Single Ladies by Beyonce
It’s Raining Men by the Weather Girls or Geri Halliwell
Gold Digger by Kanye West and Jamie Foxx
Let’s Get It On by Marvin Gaye
Another One Bites the Dust by Queen
Theme from Mission Impossible (You know it’s funny!)
Have fun with it! There are so many songs that can fit for these fun events, and don’t be afraid to go with a song that has some history or is special to you as a couple.
