10 recommended songs for your 2017/18 wedding | 65CityGirl

How do you pick the ‘perfect’ song for such a special day? There’s no one song that suits every couple out there and there are so many love songs out there that it is truly mind boggling to do so!

Here’s our suggested picks of 10 unique and meaningful songs. We have included songs from different genres, different eras, a few different languages (only English, Chinese and Korean) and even checked the lyrics for inappropriateness (trust us, some popular love songs have some really dodgy or sad lyrics in them).

Saccharine mandopop love song that sings of how two very different people come together in love. Nice melody. Nicer lyrics.

Lyrics you will love:
钢琴也是黑白键 Pianos, too, have black and white keys
一样能弹出我对你 只有满满的感谢 Yet they can convey that I Have only the greatest gratitude for you
也许黑永远不明白 Perhaps Black will never understand
在这个彩色的世界 有你我才会存在 That in this colourful world I can only exist with you around

Beautiful Love – Tanya Chua

Love’s beautiful so beautiful

就是爱你 – 陶喆

david tao love can

This song could not be more suitable. The lyrics are practically a wedding vow in itself. Sung most beautifully by my favorite David Tao.

Lyrics you will love:

我愿意 真的愿意 I am willing, truly willing
付出所有 也要保护妳 To give up everything to protect you
在一起 时间继续流逝 As we stay together as time continues to pass
请记得我有多么的爱妳 Please remember how much I love you

Firestone – Kygo ft. Conrad Sewell


While this is definitely not something you will hear at most weddings, the lyrics tell of how two people light up the world together – sounds about right. And for sure the tune will get your guests grooving into the night.

Lyrics you will love:

Our hearts are like firestones
And when they strike, we feel the love
Sparks will fly, they ignite our bones
But when they strike, we light up the world
We light up the world
