Love Playlist

I think most girls fantasize about their perfect wedding  at some point in their lives. They’d daydream about the venue, the flowers, and (gasp!) the dress. But in my case, I’ve always been a little obsessed with the wedding playlist.

Okay, I lied.Not a little but super obsessed. When I was in college, I made a playlist in my iPod simply titled “Wedding :)”. Then, I put all the songs that I want to be played at my wedding in order. From when I’m marching down the aisle (’cause I won’t settle with just the Wedding March), after the wedding going to the reception, at the reception while the guests are eating, the father-daughter dance, first dance as husband and wife, and the bouquet throwing. Oh, as well as songs for the after-party when it’s time for the guests to dance.

As a sort of late Valentine’s Day post, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite songs that I think have the sweetest lyrics about love. Needless to say, I’d probably want most of the songs in here to be played at my wedding. But that’s still a little further down the road. So right now, all I can do is just listen and feel the love!
