The Perfect Songs for the Perfect Day


If you're anything like me, deciding on music for your wedding day has become more of a headache than anything. I had this constant struggle to want memorable and unique songs choices but could never seem to find any that really stuck out to me. As a wedding planner, I have had the pleasure of listening to a lot of great song selections from other brides with better taste and creativity than myself. I have a small collection of some of my favorite songs below to help you make your decisions!
