The wedding season in Italy usually starts in spring. Due to the terrifying virus called COVID-19, the world has changed completely. All events, occasions, and parties have been halted and postponed. It’s no doubt
that this year overall is completely different, and everyone’s living with uncertainty about when life will resume and be back to normal.
We all know Italy is a famous country for hosting destination weddings. But considering the current situation, we know the situation is dreadful: several newlyweds have postponed their wedding parties until further notice. Although there are rumors about things returning to normal in winters, we still can’t be sure.
However, while everyone’s staying in their homes, looking for activities and waiting to resume their plans, many people are searching for the perfect wedding playlist. People are deciding which songs to go for, for their wedding. They want to make sure they choose the songs which would be suitable for all kinds of seasons considering the fact we never know when things will resume to normal again. Carrying some classics into the new year is the goal.
In this playlist, made by Jody Belli from ProfessionalWeddingDJ (Wedding DJ for international weddings in Italy) we’ll be reviewing songs, so let’s begin!
SONGS FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM ENTRANCE
The songs listed below are the perfect mix for spring 2020. With heartwarming lyrics, and a bit of musical intensity and fast pace, these songs are perfect for defining the thrill of starting a new phase of life. They’re not meant for “softer” moments, but instead, they’re suitable for lively and jolly moments. Let’s start with the entrance of the newlyweds.
The Weekend is an amazing artist who has released several hit songs. I’ve truly appreciated his work over the years. Such lyrics hit different during the entrance of the bride and groom, and the lyrics are quite deep
with the perfect mix of pumped music.
• The Weeknd – Blinding Lights
No, I can’t sleep until I feel your touch
I could never say it on the phone (Say it on the phone)
Will never let you go this time (Ooh)
• Twenty-one pilots – Level of Concern
Twenty-one pilots is a great band that explains the love we all need during such hard times. Their song, Level of Concern, is a huge hit with such amazing lyrics.
I don’t really care what they would say
I’m asking you to stay
In my bunker underneath the surface
Would you be
My little quarantine?
Need you to tell me we’re alright, tell me we’re okay
Need you now
AND NOW, ARE YOU READY FOR THE ROMANTIC MOMENT?
Souvenir by Selena Gomez is a beautiful romantic song. Selena is known to be a Disney star and an American singer and actress. Her take on this song makes it sweet and romantic. It’s a song full of romantic lyrics and a different rhythm unlike other wedding songs which are slow; this song is different with a bit of pop music. It’s an interesting addition to a special moment in your party. Especially in Italy, this song will surely take over more wedding parties and ceremonies!
Shivers dance down my spine, head down to my feet
Swimming in your eyes, in your eyes
Something I’ve never had without you
You’re giving me chills at a hundred degrees
Calling your name, the only language I can speak
Taking my breath, a souvenir that you can keep
Giving me chills
We have two songs in particular that are ideal for romantic moments in your wedding party, and the shocking thing is, the lyrics are a complete opposite.
• Sam Smith Stay with me
Sam Smith has taken over the music industry in a very short time, for all the right reasons. His single, Stay with me was released in 2014. While the lyrics scream pessimism, such as ‘As my world is collapsing around me, I just want someone to die for’. They don’t really spread positivity or celebrate love, but they do describe the undying love and passion one has in a relationship.
I don’t wanna be alone
I look for you
Every day, every night
Sunshine livin’ on a perfect day
While my world’s crashing down
I just want somebody to die for
• Dotan’s Numb
It’s Dotan’s new single. This Dutch producer is a singer-songwriter and multi-talented musician who isn’t afraid of experimenting. This song doesn’t give a sweet vibe, but instead sends down chills through one’s spine, pumping them up for another round of dance! It would help if you certainly skipped this choice for a first dance.
Cause I feel numb
So infected with your bad blood, bad blood
Keep on running ’til it blows up, blows up
All I wanted to be a real love
But I feel numb
