{wedding wednesday :: the music}

So, the three day weekend last week completely threw me off. I posted on Tuesday night without realizing what day it actually was, so I'm sorry for that! I'm back this week, don't you worry. 

I've been enjoying talking a bit more about my own wedding, and my own experience. I thought I'd share a little bit about the music on the day of my wedding, and what I might choose if I were getting married today. 

Music at my wedding...

Processional song :: Love Story, Taylor Swift (played on the piano)
Grand entrance :: I Gotta Feeling, Black Eyed Peas
First dance :: You and I, Michael Buble
Bouquet toss :: California Gurls, Katy Perry

I wouldn't change any of the songs at my wedding (especially not the song I walked in to or our first dance song), but there are a few songs that I've been hearing at weddings lately that I really love. Have you heard Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran? That one kills me, every. single. time. And you can't go wrong with a grand exit to We Are Young by Fun. or Get Lucky by Daft Punk.

What are some songs that you've heard at weddings lately that you really love?

Now it's your turn! Link up your Wedding Wednesday posts below!

The rules for Wedding Wednesday are simple:

All posts must be recent (within a month) and wedding related. You can post about your favorite current wedding trends, photos from your wedding, your wedding planning experience, etc. That's it!

Obviously I would love it if you would visit the other blogs that are linked up, and I would SO appreciate it if you would link back to Something Charming in your post or use my button. Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone!

Your wedding music sounds like it was fun! I can imagine Love Story sounded nice on piano.
We aren't super into pop music, so we used a few selections from the Up! soundtrack by Michael Giacchino then Carl Goes Up for my processional.

That Ed Sheeran song is what Brooke's first dance will be! :) It's GORGEOUS.

Right??? I cried the first time I heard it!

That's so sweet! I always love when couples pick songs that are personal to them :)

But lately I can't get enough of oldies- be in Van Morrison's into the mystic (that one melts me) or Otis Redding's That's how strong my love is...I can't even describe how those songs make me feel.


(p.s.- love your first dance song! thanks for introducing me to a new Michael Buble tune to love)

I love Kiss Me by Ed Sheeran. Do you know the story behind it? He wrote it for his two godparents who got married a couple of years ago. They were previously married to others, divorced, and their friendship turned into something more. They wanted him to sing at his wedding, but didn't feel like his songs worked haha. I love it.
