Listen to the Music

March 24, 2015

Destination Weddings

You would be hard-pressed to find someone who couldn’t hum the Star Wars theme song, or even sing a few lines from “Over the Rainbow”.  Just like an epic film score during a climactic scene in a movie, music can play a significant role in making your wedding day memorable.  The songs you choose will set the tone, tell a story and of course, start the party!

Destination Wedding Flip Flops

As you choose the music for the day there are a number of things you will need to think about: pre-ceremony background music, ceremony music (processional and recessional songs), cocktail music and reception music (first dance, father-daughter, mother-son and dance music). The music selections should be personal and act as a reflection of you, the bride and groom. Maybe on your first road trip together you listened to the entire Bruce Springsteen discography, why not use “If I Should Fall Behind” for your first dance?!

Your options are truly limitless, so don’t feel like you have to stick to more traditional choices. Recently our playlists have been featuring a lot of classic songs with a bit of a twist. Here are ten cover songs that are making us hit repeat over and over again right now.
