19 wedding sing-along songs to get your guests belting their faves #Reception Advice#music#sing-along#wedding songs Posted Jan 25 2021 Offbeat Editors Photo by Urban Light Studios I want to include a group sing-along song, as part of my ceremony. Were it a traditional wedding, it'd be a hymn, but it's going to be completely non-religious. So, I'm hoping for some suggestions of songs that are: Of a romantic nature Easy to sing Well-known by a variety of people from different walks of life -Cassan Sing-alongs have a way of making people happy. Non-dancers have something joyful to do and dancers can belt out the song while they boogie. Just standing together and breathing in unison (as you naturally do when you sing together) creates a sense of togetherness that's hard to beat. A good sing-along has memorable words, or at least a couple of memorable lines people can jump in on. They can't require a huge vocal range and they must have a catchy tune. Older songs are fine, especially if you have multiple generations on your guest list. Some guests will remember the song from the Top 40 list of their youth, and others may know it from a recent movie. The song should be pretty popular, though, at least with your crowd. Familiar songs are more likely to get everyone singing. Our list of the 19 best wedding sing-along songs Here's a list of perfect sing-along songs, along with the artist.

Briavael and Nikki printed lyrics on their program and handed out kazoos to make sure non-singers had a good way to join in. Play the music loud so nobody has to feel self-conscious when they sing. Call it a "holler-along" song to make it clear that you want the love, not the musical ability. If you have strong singers in your group, ask them ahead of time to lead the sing-along. With or without a microphone, a confident singer (who got a heads-up so they could remind themselves of the lyrics) can make it easier for everyone.

On the other hand, some might need a couple of songs to warm up to the idea — or they might be having so much fun they want to keep singing. You know your friends and family best. Consider having one for-sure song, plus another you'll pull out if people are really enjoying themselves. Listen — really listen –to the lyrics of the song or songs before you make your choice. Often, we don't realize that there's a sad section in a favorite song. And that might not be a deal-breaker. Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" is a popular song at weddings in spite of all the "lonely heart" lyrics. But make sure you know ahead of time so you can make an informed choice. With the right songs and the right spirit, your sing-along might be the most memorable moment of the wedding.
