Some people obviously missed the message when they planned their wedding and end up playing some songs that just should be avoided at wedding. I mean, it’s your day and you can pick what you want. It just really bothers me when people pick breakup songs as wedding songs. Like what are you trying to say about your marriage?
Skinny Love by Bon Iver
I don’t care if you play the Birdy cover version or not, the lyrics are still the same. They tell a story about a couple that CAN’T be together. He’s letting his lover go and that’s what the song is about. The love has died out, it’s a skinny love, there’s no nourishment left of it. Why would you want to play a depressing song like that at your wedding? It just makes me all kinds of different shades of sad.
Every Breath You Take by The Police
This is the definition of a stalker song that Sting wrote about his ex wife. Goodbye, why would you want to play that song at your wedding?
I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston
Yeah, it’s one of the most beautiful songs of all time but it’s also one of the most depressing.
Gold Digger by Kanye West
It’s just a big red flag if this is played at your wedding. Even if it’s in an ironic way, it just looks bad for you and your husband.
Creep by Radiohead
A song that big Radiohead fans might want played but let’s not. It’s another of those gut wrenching songs that absolutely is out of place at a wedding.
Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton
It’s a song about a dead child. Let’s just not play this at weddings EVER okay? The song has a lot of feelings as it is and it just feels like the biggest sin to play it at a wedding.
I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For by U2
Well, why are you getting married then?
Get Low by Lil Jon
It’s not exactly the classiest song in the world.
Who Let The Dogs Out by Baha Men
Playing this song just gives me the vibe that you’re referring to the bride as a dog which just feels wrong on so many levels.
Hey Ya by Outkast
Yeah, it’s a fun track in theory. But the lyrics are about divorce and just the general concept of love not lasting. That’s sending some major negative vibes for the newlyweds.
