Music, Weddings

Wedding Music for the Disney Bride

I had a Tangled/Disney themed wedding (not overly cheesy or blatant, if I do say so myself), and since I’m a musician, the music for both the ceremony and the reception was a HUGE deal!  A while ago I made a list for my piano playing business about ways to add a little more magic to your wedding day, via Disney music, and figured I would share it over here. So, here are some musical ideas for every part of your wedding that will add a hint of pixie-dust!

*Marks a song I used at my own wedding!

Entrance Songs:
-So This is Love from Cinderella
-Can You Feel the Love Tonight? from The Lion King (Elton John version) 
-One Song from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 
-Married Life from Pixar’s UP

Recessional Song: 

-True Love’s Kiss from Enchanted
-Once Upon A Dream from Sleeping Beauty 
-Learn Me Right from Brave (A friend of mine had this as her first dance song!)

First Dance: 
-I See the Light from Tangled*  
-Love Is An Open Door from Frozen 
-Beyond the Sea from Finding Nemo 
-A Whole New World from Aladdin 
-Love from Robin Hood 
-Ma Belle Evangeline from The Princess and the Frog 

Mother/Son Dance:
You’ll Be In My Heart from Tarzan*
-Baby Mine from Dumbo 
-Your Mother and Mine from Peter Pan 

Father/Daughter Dance:
-How Does a Moment Last Forever? from Beauty and the Beast (Celine Dion version)
-Baby Mine from Dumbo 
-Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman (technically not Disney, but it gives the same vibe and guarantees happy tears)*

Bouquet Toss: 
-I Won’t Say I’m In Love from Hercules*
-Someday My Prince Will Come from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 

Garter Toss: 
-Be A Man from Mulan* 
-A Girl Worth Fighting For from Mulan
