Wedding music trends

What Are Some Of The Current Wedding Music Trends?

Are you currently focusing on planning your wedding? Although you might have some details planned out already, there are a few things that you may not be so sure about, such as the music that you will have played by the DJ during the reception. You want to be able to listen to music that you like, but you would likely want to please others who will be at the reception too, such as your parents and your partner’s parents.

Instead of stressing out about which songs should be played and which ones should be avoided, consider checking out some of the latest music trends. The trends may give you a bit of inspiration for what you would like to do for your own wedding.

Many brides are choosing upbeats songs for the reception because they want to encourage their guests to dance and have a good time. While some slow song selections are still popular, especially during the first dance between the married couple and the father/daughter dance or mother/son dance, you should still consider having many fun songs played by your live acoustic wedding band.

If you are not sure which songs would be fun to listen and dance to, consider adding tracks by Taylor Swift and Katy Perry to your playlist. You may also want to add a few Michael Jackson songs. Even though those songs would be considered a bit old, it is a great way to mix things up and give everyone a chance to enjoy the music that is being played.

The dance-style songs are completely trendy. Want to get everyone, including your grandparents, on the dance floor? If so, consider choosing several fun selections, such as Single Ladies by Beyonce and Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5. You can add in a few oldies by The Temptations and Diana Ross to mix up the different generations of music too.

Along with the fun music, softer selections are trendy for the first dance that you will have with your partner. You can select any song that you like. For example, the two of you may have a song that reminds you of one another. One of John Legend’s songs, “All of Me”, has become an extremely popular wedding song.

One of the best things you could possibly do when selecting your wedding music is to ask friends to list some of their favorite songs. If you have friends who have different preferences, you will be able to compose this huge list of songs that are sung by so many different musicians. You will end up with such a great variety of music to listen to at your wedding reception.

The most important thing about your reception is having a good time. And, if you want to be able to celebrate excitedly over your nuptials, you are going to want to have the best music played. Consider following some of the trends, but also make sure to choose plenty of songs that you would love to listen to throughout the entire day.

Bridal Dance. wedding music playlist

There are  three French love songs that still make me cry when I hear them. Performed with Spanish guitar and vocals they can be the special treat of the evening as part of your wedding music playlsy.

Ne me quittes pas, de Jacques Brel.



I have translated some of the lyrics. Love can make you tingle  and these words do

Moi je t’offrirai
I could give you

Des perles de pluie
pearls of the showers

Venues de pays
that have come from lands

Ou il ne pleut pas.
where it doesn’t rain.

Je creuserai la terre
I would dig the earth,

Jusqu’apres ma mort
even after my death,

Pour couvrir ton corps
to cover your body

D’or et de lumiere.
with gold and light.

Je ferai un domaine
I will make a domain

Où l’amour sera roi,
where love will be king,

Où l’amour sera loi,
where love will be law,

Où tu seras reine.
where you will be queen.

Another of my favourite French Love Songs

Non, je ne regrette rien, de Edith Piaf

I quote and translate some of the lyrcis

Balayés les amours
(Swept away my past loves)
Avec leurs trémolos
(With their tremors)

Balayés pour toujours
(Swept away for always)
Je repars à zéro
(I start again from zero)

Non, Rien de rien
(No, nothing of nothing)
Non, Je ne regrette rien
(No, I regret nothing)

The Video

My favourite

Je l’aime à mourir by Francis Cabrel

and some of the lyrics that give me goosebumps

Je l’aime à mourir

I love her to death

Elle a gommé les chiffres

She erased the numbers

Des horloges du quartie
From the area’s clocks

Elle a fait de ma vie
She transformed my life into

Des cocottes en papier
Paper hens

Des éclats de rires
Bursts of laughter

Elle a bâti des ponts

She built bridges

Entre nous et le ciel
Between us and the sky

Et nous les traversons
And we cross them

A chaque fois qu’elle
Everytime she

Ne veut pas dormi
Doesn’t want to sleep

Ne veut pas dormir
Doesn’t want to sleep
