Top Wedding Songs | Redcastle Weddings

Monday, 30 July 2018
Music accompanies us throughout life in many special moments including, of course, our wedding. Therefore, choosing the right songs for our big day becomes an essential task for many couples during the wedding planning. Choosing a song that we love is not enough; it also has to identify us as a couple and make us feel that in some way, it tells our story.

The magic of music is its ability to make us feel so much with only a few chords. Some songs will have a special meaning for the couple. Because they met or got engaged while it was on, for example. And there are other songs that are odes to love, so universal, that they have become anthems. Whatever the reason, there is a song for each couple. Do you want to know which are the favourites at the Redcastle Weddings

Entrance Songs
One of the most anticipated moments of the day is when the Wedding Party and, above all, the bride and groom enter the Ocean Suite for the first time. For an unforgettable entrance, our couples choose the following songs:

Top Three Songs for Entrance into the Ocean Suite for Couples
George Ezra - Paradise
Hall & Oats - You Make My Dreams 
Pharrell Williams – Happy

Top Three Songs for Entrance Music into the Ocean Suite for the Wedding Party
Walk the Moon - Shut up and dance
Sigala, Ella Eyre - Came here for love
Justin Timberlake - Can’t stop the Feeling

First Dance Songs
It is undeniable that one of the most exciting moments of any wedding is the first dance. That is why, perhaps, it is the choice that generates the most doubts. But the Redcastle couples have it clear: they choose national bands, with Kodaline and Picture This in the top 3. 

Top Three First Dance Songs 
Kodaline - The One
Picture This - Take My Hand
Picture This - Addicted to You

For the first dance couples often ask whether they should let the band sing the song or play the original version. Redcastle couples don’t massively opt for one of the two options, it’s quite even, so we suggest going with the one that suits you best. Brides and Grooms tend to have both a band and DJ and, in most cases the band is also the DJ. 

And you, what song did you choose or would you choose for your wedding? Did it make our list?
