Banquet Halls for Weddings:
No two weddings are alike. Your choice of music is like the unfolding of a unique song line. The perfect song weaves together the different stanzas of the ceremony around the chorus of two people falling in love.
At MGM Weddings, we’ve heard wedding songs that span the full range of emotions. We have seen songs that light up a ballroom hall in spontaneous jubilation or bring everyone to instant tears. Curating the right list creates a place for it all.
The Best Choices of Wedding Songs:
The best choices of wedding songs are united by an immediate sense of recognition. The soulful opening strains of Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight”, may evoke breathtaking intimacy. Busting out Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” for the first dance signals it’s time to let loose.
The staff at our banquet halls, Los Angeles, Ca, cater to all tastes and are sensitive to what songs are meaningful to the couple, to the bridal party, the respective parents, and to the individual bride and groom.
Our Top 10 Wedding Song List:
Whether choosing more traditional songs or opting for a hopelessly romantic or even whimsical soundtrack to run through the big event at our banquet halls for weddings, we can help inspire your choices. Here are 10 classic wedding songs to strike the note-perfect accompaniment for the big day.
