Why Is This List Important?
Classical music is not enough. Modern brides want to hear songs they and their guests will recognize with lyrics that melt the heart or make you want to dance. Make the best use of your music dollars and practice time by adding in some of the most requested and most iconic love songs.
People tend to feel the most nostalgic about the music they listened to in their teens and 20s. For example, a client born in the 70s will likely be excited to hear songs from the 80s and 90s. Having a few songs from each decade in your repertoire ensures you have something special for all ages.
