Nothing compares to the special moment of the wedding ceremony. If you want everybody to know what your feelings are for your future wife or husband, besides the vows, you have to choose some great songs to mark that moment. The first thing you have to consider it’s the fact that not every church allows you to play any song you want. You should choose some contemporary songs which are most frequently approved by churches. The second thing you have to decide on it’s whether you hire a singer to perform, or you choose to make a playlist. For the second option, we’ve made a top of contemporary wedding songs that should guide you trough the searching process.

On our first position, we’ve placed Shania Twain’s song “From This Moment”. The lyrics describe perfectly what happens during the ceremony. They say how life begins from that moment and how the bride and the groom belong side by side. Although this song has a country rhythm, it sounds more like pop. On the second position you can find “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack. This song it’s frequently used on wedding ceremonies mostly because of its emotional lyrics that concentrate on the idea of love at first sight. This song was first released in 1969 on the album “First Take” by Roberta Flack, and won a Grammy award.

The “All My Life” song performed by K-C and Jojo talks about finding your half after you’ve waited a very long time. The lyrics are emotional and the rhythm it’s slow, but passionate. If you really want something special for the moment when you will say your vows, you should think about hiring an artist to perform a song with a piano. If you like this idea, you should also choose a classic song from the 50s like “Unforgettable” by Nat King Cole.

Another contemporary wedding song that you can choose is “Love Will Be Your Home” by Sandi Patty. This song it’s so beautiful, that manages to transform any ordinary moment into a memorable one. The message of the song it’s that no matter what life will offer you, you will always have love. That’s a heart touching statement that I’m sure will mark your connection with your beloved one. The song “Something In The Way She Moves” by James Taylor it’s great for the moment when the bride walks down the aisle. I’m sure the suggestive lyrics will make the guests focus their attention on the bride.
