Wedding Song Ideas

The purpose of this page is to provide wedding song ideas and inspiration to those who are looking for outside influence regarding their wedding song.

You can have many different wedding songs in the same wedding. There are so many beautiful moments during a wedding that are highlighted by the music:

  • Greeting
  • Walking or dancing down the aisle
  • The celebration song after announced as a married couple
  • First dance
  • Father/daughter dance
  • Etc...

See what I mean?

Custom songs are also one of the most unique wedding song ideas that you can include in your wedding. I have the good fortune of being married to a really talented musician. So for our wedding, my husband wrote a song for just for us.

He then gathered pictures of us through out our relationship and created a slideshow while playing the song he wrote. It was incredible! Not a dry eye in the place! It even brought my tough military uncle to tears. It was really a beautiful sentiment that we now have as a treasure from our big day.

You can view our custom slideshow, titled "Emerald Slideshow 1" here.

If you are interested in having a custom song written for your wedding or event, or having a slide show created to custom music, Jonnie is your man!
