Wedding Songs Fridays: Classic Love Song Covers

Jan 31, 2014 by


Classic love songs are classic for a reason, darling bride-to-be! They were written to move you, remind you why you fell for your groom, and make you grin as you think of that first shared kiss. Sometimes, though, classic love songs can be a little problematic for wedding receptions. Every bride want her weddings to be personal and unique, and having your DJ spin the same love songs played at every wedding doesn’t really achieve that goal.

In addition, there are some songs classically played by bands that bring to mind a certain period or mood – like the angsty nature brought on by The Cure. So, when looking for a classic love song, (like The Cure’s aptly named: “Love Song”) look away from your youth and towards the modern, wedding-appropriate Adele.
