I hear it said all the time from bride to be, groom to be, mother of the brides, mother of the grooms, friends, and family, "We need songs for the wedding! We want something non cliche and fun. Do you know of anything?" Well, look no further- I got your back. I've created a fun playlist for the processional and recessional as well as first dances that aren't always thought of, but are super awesome!
