Wedding Song Lyrics – Finding the Right Wedding Songs

Matthew Campbell

The average song is about 3 minutes long. Most wedding receptions are about three to four hours. At three hours, this would be sixty songs of non-stop music for a three hour wedding reception and eighty songs for a four hour wedding reception. This does not include the wedding ceremony. Typically, a wedding ceremony is about a half-an-hour but only about fixe songs played depending on the type of ceremony. That’s lots of wedding song lyrics to consider for your wedding.

What can help you select the songs to your wedding? Most bridal couples will select wedding songs which mean the most to them; which we highly recommend. Just because song have the title of being a love song does not mean the song is about being in love. The meaning of a love song could be trying to get someone back after failure, it could be trying to steal your lover away from someone else, or any other meaning about love.
