Since I’m not the kind of girl that gushes at wedding and daydreams about her own wedding dress, I always appreciate a little entertainment and humour at such a blessed event. Some wedding walk-ins are so dull, I feel like slitting my wrist just to see the blood spray on the bride’s dress. The horror, the horror! We get it, you’re in love – can you display something else, like a sense of humour, instead?
1. Pour Some Sugar On Me – Def Leppard
Just for the big bang introduction alone. It would, however, probably have been used already by the strippers at the stag/hen party.
2. Love Is A Battlefield – Pat Benatar
A realistic take, I would say.
3. Mind Games – John Lennon
My favourite song from John Lennon and one of my favourite, most optimistic quotes about love: Love is the answer. And you know that for sure.
4. She Came In Through The Bathroom Window – The Beatles
Strictly for a crowd that can appreciate humour.
5. I Want To Break Free – Queen
The commitment song of choice for the commitment phobic.
6. Modern Love – David Bowie
A song for the more cynical at heart – “never gonna fall for modern love”.
7. Bittersweet Symphony
Mostly for the strings introduction. I wouldn’t recommend keeping the line, “you’re a slave to money, then you die” though.
8. Wouldn’t It Be Nice – The Beach Boys
Such a whimsical, youthful song about commitment. “You know it’s gonna make it that much better when we can say goodnight and stay together”. Better than, “You know it’s gonna make it that much better when you can actually replace the toilet paper instead of just leaving the cardboard roll there”
9. I Was Made For Lovin’ You – Kiss
I was actually at a wedding once where the couple walked into the ballroom to this song. It does happen!
10. Even Better Than The Real Thing – U2
The introduction of the song would be so awesome with wedding bells in the background.
