The Wedding March. I hardly hear that being played at weddings anymore. Its either a solo by the lead soprano singer in a church or the DJ plays an r&b song of some sort. Whilst some stick to the traditional wedding march other choose alternative hymns and gospel songs.
I think choosing a wedding song should have an emotional or personal attachment to it. Maybe it was the first song you danced to when you were dating or it was what was playing in the restaurant when you first met her. Or even what the radio was playing when your best friend introduced him to you.
If you are preparing to get married soon and just wondering what gospel song you would like to played upon your entrance to the church or garden or seaside (whichever location catches your fancy) or would like to sing to your new bride; here is a list of my favourite (soon to be your favourite too) Gospel songs that would get every guest at your wedding saying, ‘awwwwwww’ and wipe away a tear!
OMG!!! This is THE SONG OF SONGS! I fell in love with ‘This Song’ just today and I have decided thats what I want for my wedding so please don’t steal it. I was shocked to see it was released in 1997! Oh that must have been when I was living under a rock then. *facepalm* This will be perfect for either the bride or groom to sing depending on whose voice is more romantic 🙂 or just as a wedding dance especially for couples who can’t do the Azonto or Alkayida dance, just hold yourselves and sway!
This is a personal favourite I played some two years ago because I was focusing a lot on my purpose and Gods Word was basically what I was using as a guide (what else is there?) But then I realised it was also perfect for a wedding march for a bride because as a soon-to-be wife that should be a prayer for all the accomplishments and responsibilities she will take on after becoming one with her soon-to-be husband. And the Word will do just that for her as a guide. Marriage isn’t easy, its a lot of work but with God nothing is impossible.
The baritone rich voice of TD Jakes is enough to transform your wedding dance or walk down the aisle into a heavenly romantic moment. I played this song repeatedly till I knew the words offhand. The lyrics are just perfect for the bride who has been through many heartbreaks and gets strengthened all the time by putting her trust in the Lord until the day that special man comes along. The man who loves her selflessly, who makes her forget past pain and regrets, a friend forever! If you can relate with this, then this is your song!
Another favourite of mine. When you have prayed for the right partner and kept up your hope and not rushed into something unprepared for and God shows up just at the right time, this is the song you would want to choose. The fact that you are single shouldn’t mean you shouldnt praise! Keep praising and hoping and God will show up for you. Just walk down the aisle with a heart full of continuous praise! Glory!
This is an encouraging song which I think is also appropriate to encourage your guests or single friends at your wedding that if they also wait on The Lord, their time will come. As you come down the aisle, a live duet performance by your two favourite choir singers or maybe a collabo with Becca ft Davido, hehehee…. will be perfect.
