Their iTunes library :)
then ask an orchestra to cover them.
i.e. Everlong by foo fighters in orchestra style (Friends Monica and Chandler’s wedding) AMAZING!

I think it depends very much on the style of ceremony and the bride & groom’s taste. We put our music together ourselves (it was very important to us) and mixed classical, jazz, rock and folk.

If you google popular wedding songs, you will find a bunch of sites and lists of what people are using these days. Here is one site. “Here”: is another.

One I didn’t see on any of those sites that people used to use a lot was Paul Stookey’s Wedding Song. People use Celine Deion’s Power of Love.

For classical, there are many great choices. You can never go wrong with Bach in my opinion.

Go to songza and type in wedding songs and see what comes up.

I don’t really suggest iTunes; check their CD piles.

Yes. CD’s.

@megalongcat, why not their iTunes? they’ll have ripped their CDs to it…?

@lefteh I had forgotten that (amazing that I would, isn’t it?). Thanks for the chuckle.

Queen You’re My Best Friend is great as a wedding song too.

Depending on how old the couple is, they might not of ripped all 100+ CD’s they could possibly have into their iTunes collection. Most people I know even around my age never bothered to rip the majority of their CD collections into iTunes. It’s a suggestion anyway.

iTunes now carries wedding mixes – definitely worth browsing for ideas.

There are lot of places. one is best place is internet.
But if you are looking for new song then you can hire a singer or composer and they can create a new song for you.
