Charlotte's Favourite Things! ~ Music !

Ever get goosebumps watching romantic movies where the happy couple dances the night away to some sappy love song? Me too! We would all love our lives to play out to an amazing playlist but sometimes that doesn't always happen. Well at least for your wedding day, it can be!

 

Since music is like a second language to me, I wanted to share some of my favourite love songs for you and your beloved to dance to on your special day!

If you're more of a modern bride and like to create some of your own traditions, then here is a quick list of some of the most romantic love songs of this generation.  

 

"All Of Me" by John Legend could be the most popular love song of this past year and is a perfect example of his love for his one and only. This song is a pretty straight forward love letter to his wife explaining how love is an 'all or nothing' game. Through the good and the bad, J.L. has made it very clear that you should be in it for the long haul. We all have flaws and we all stumble every once in a while, the key is to find someone who will share those flaws and look at them as perfections instead.  

 

Ms. Christina Perri wrote one of the most beautiful piano ballads of this past year, that makes me cry every time. "A Thousand Years" describes how scary it can be to fall in love, but if you're with the right person it can be the easiest thing you will ever do. Walking down the aisle to this song would be a dream!


"God Gave Me You" by Blake Shelton is also a tear jerk-er as it was made for Mr. Shelton's beautiful fiance at the time, Miranda Lambert. She is actually in the beginning of the music video telling Blake how excited she is to get married to him in just a few hours... talk about adorable! This song is for the country-lovers out there who are eager to walk down the aisle to their best friend, confidante and true love with its beautifully romantic lyrics.  

If you're more of a traditional bride and have always had a connection with the classics here are a few suggestions to incorporate the older romantics into your wedding day!  A timeless song that is the epitome of finding love is Etta James' "At Last". Mrs. James really knew how to capture the feeling of falling in love in this classic love song and really makes you feel like you're right there with her. Every time you listen to this song it's hard not to picture your loved one and imagine the bright future ahead of you both.  


Can't help falling in love? Neither could Elvis! This soulful and delicate love song takes us all back to the first time we looked into your spouse's beautiful eyes and makes us feel all gooey inside. Why not feel that on your wedding day with this classic serenade by Mr. Presley himself.  

Another traditional but never over-played song that brings us all back a few years is "L-O-V-E" by the famous Nat King Cole. This song perfectly describes how love puts a little 'pep-in-our-step'. It's hard not to tap your foot to this heart-filled ensemble as everyone around starts to feel the love too.  

Whatever your choice of wedding song to dance to, make sure its describes how remarkable your person is to you. Sometimes we aren't so good with words so these songs can help you along with sharing your true commitment and love to your special someone.  

Keep Up The Happy Planning!
