My biggest advice for selecting your wedding song is choosing one that feels true to you and your babe. Do you two have a song you gravitate more on your romantic date nights? Do you tend to listen to more modern music or more country? When you think of a first dance song, do you immediately envision some of those oldie but goodie songs your parents listened to? 

I’ve also put together a playlist where you can tune in and listen to any of these wedding love songs!

Play them in the background while you’re cooking dinner tonight and see if something inspires you and your fiancé! I can’t wait to hear what you choose!
