Welcome to the second installment of the quarterly series I've aptly named “Songs I'm Currently Loving”. Here are the songs I'm jamming to lately and some ideas on how you can add them to your wedding day!
Meghan Trainor – Dear Future Husband
If you're sticking with the seemingly antiquated bouquet toss, play this song to make the tradition a bit more modern. Favorite line? The last one.
“Future husband, better love me right.”
Safety Suit – Never Stop (Wedding Version)
Was there ever a more beautiful song written? I was planning my own wedding when I first heard this one and I bawled like a baby. It's literally perfect for your wedding day…processional, bridal entrance, first dance, anything. But make sure it's the wedding version and not the original, which is very much less wedding-like (unless you're into that sort of thing)! Favorite lyrics? The entire chorus.
“I will never stop trying.
I will never stop watching as you leave.
I will never stop loosing my breath
every time I see you looking back at me.
I will never stop holding your hand.
I will never stop opening your door.
I will never stop choosing you babe.
I will never get used to you.”
Cossbysweater – Never Gonna Give You Up
Yes, that Never Gonna Give You Up. I love a good cover and this one is excellent. In fact, I love it so much I walked down the aisle to its chorus. For a while there, my husband thought it was really funny to rickroll people. Let's be honest – it's still pretty funny. But he did it to me all.the.time. So I pulled the ultimate bait and switch when I rickrolled him on our wedding day. He thought I chose some romantic ballad to make my entrance but I went with the chorus of this Rick Astley cover. Favorite lyrics?
Duh, all of them.
Ironically enough, the assistant videographer at our wedding looked EXACTLY like Rick Astley.
Chris Brown – Forever
Despite my dislike for Chris Brown, this hit of his will always be wedding day-perfect. We can thank Jim and Pam for that. Play this during the bridal party entrance or just add it to your dance play list. Favorite lyrics?
Who cares. It's just a fun beat.
What's on your playlist these days?
