A great website with an extensive list of possible songs for a wedding can be found at www.greatweddingsongs.net/ The wedding songs should really be a joint decision taken by both the bride and groom; this way it will feel like a shared day. Sometimes you may not really take a lot of notice to lyrics and just like a song for its melody. However, you certainly need to listen carefully to lyrics when picking songs for a wedding. There are many common songs about heartache and unrequited love; these lyrics are usually negative or bitter towards love and are not really appropriate for a wedding occasion!
The songs chosen should have upbeat and inspiring lyrics about how love can conqueror all. These songs will sit perfectly with the occasion and should speak volumes to all the guests present. As well as some romantic and slow songs, there also needs to be some party songs that will get everyone up and dancing the night away. These songs again need some thought but can be a little bit less lyric conscious than the slower meaningful ones.
