Are your wedding songs a cliche? Discover the most popular and celebs’ choices here!

I do love a good infographic – those carefully crafted diagrams which tell us all the wedding stats we need from average budgets to the number of marriages and which counties are the most romantic… Admittedly some are rubbish and some are mildly interesting at best – but this little feature on wedding songs had me raising an eyebrow or two so I thought I’d share it with you! I’ll be honest… some of the first dance songs would make me hurl. At the same time, the songs listed as “overplayed” are classics… which is fine, isn’t it?! My own personal choices don’t make the list…

With thanks to Glen from A Few Good Men for sharing with us today – food for thought, perhaps? Are your songs on the list, or are you tempted to choose a celebrity wedding first dance number? Maybe you were, but now you know Mark Zuckerberg had it, you’ve gone right off the idea of Green Day as your first dance… hehe.

My top tip for choosing your wedding songs? Go with ‘your song’ no matter what anyone says, how inappropriate it might be or even if it’s on the list of cliches… because making it personal to you as a couple is the best and most important thing you can do!

    Was a bit confused by the civil ceremony level, but the references says it’s from a survey in Ireland. Think you should choose music that means something to you even if it’s just you both like listening to it.
