View Full Version : Wedding Songs Help

Im looking for just simple easy songs that I can learn to play for a wedding.

I wont be playing for a crowd specifically, but a friend of mine asked me to play at their wedding just as people are walking in kind of background music.

So far I have, Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Iz, and thats it so far. I need songs that would go well with that and enough that I could play for a good 15 to 20mins.

Any suggestions would be helpful, Im grasping at straws here since its kind of last minute.

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Kid Creole and the Coconuts "Annie, I'm not your daddy" always popular with the bride's father!

OK I'll be serious a good one is "'Till there was you"
Here's a cracking version

You might like: Believe Me; Let it be me; side by side. Easy to do. Probably don't want: Careless love; met my baby in a porti potti line; going to Maui tomorrow.

I just sang With You by Chris Brown in a beach wedding of a friend. I sang it in a ballad arrangement not in the RnB Chris Brown original. Much like this arrangement --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNSER8VmYXE

With a friend, we also sang Say it Again by Marie Digby (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xR8EyPH4cP0) and Lucky by Jason Mraz and Colbie Callait (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acvIVA9-FMQ).

Three songs in all, all in ukulele. :) And everything is easy. I can help you with the chords.

"Give yourself to Love" by Kate Wolf
It is an elegant song that was written for a wedding.

"The Way You Look Tonight" (Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra) and "Wonderful Tonight" (Eric Clapton) come to mind.

White Sandy Beaches, IZ. Dream, On a Coconut Island, Lovely Hula Hands, Drop Baby Drop - slow, Blue Hawaii, Dream A Little Dream of me. You can play some non-descript 1, 4 ,5 or just pick C, Am, F, G7 for one song. Try it, it sounds nice for background music.
