Make Your Vintage Wedding Complete with Vintage Wedding Songs
While modern and traditional weddings are popular, one style that keeps popping up in wedding trends is vintage. Vintage weddings are elegant and fun, and people are choosing vintage styles in all aspects of their weddings – from bridal party attire to decorations and favors. But if there’s one touch that will make a vintage wedding even more authentic, it’s music. We have plenty of songs from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s in our extensive music library that will set the mood and take guests back in time. Here are seven classics:
The Man I Love – Billie Holiday
This 1920s slow song is sure to turn anyone into a hopeless romantic.
It Had to Be You – Frank Sinatra
It’s hard for me to say no to Frank, especially with the strings and horns going throughout the song, but we also have the Isham Jones orchestra version. Either one is a perfect addition to a vintage wedding.
Someone to Watch Over Me – Ella Fitzgerald
A true 1920s Gershwin classic, this song will slow things down and make the crowd nostalgic.
Cheek to Cheek – Tommy Dorsey and Artie Shaw
This 1930s hit is a little more upbeat and sure to get people doing some swing dancing!
Night and Day -Artie Shaw, Cole Porter
This song sounds like it’s straight out of a 1930s love story. It’s catchy and fun!
Swinging on a Star – Bing Crosby
Would you like to swing on a star? Carry moonbeams home in a jar? This is a 1940s classic that guests will likely know the words to (heck, I do). It’s a memorable favorite.
Opus One – Tommy Dorsey
This is a big band song where the horns and clarinets do all the talking.
