Wedding season is here, and there’s nothing more that I hate when you head to a happy gathering such as this and the atmosphere is totally killed because of some awful music. I know, I know–there are other things that could also irk me while being a guest at a wedding (like getting hit on by someone’s creepy uncle), but as a semi-music-nerd-brat, it’s hard for me to fathom why it’s so hard for some folks to sonically curate a wedding with absolute perfection.
Well, I figured I’d do my part to help all those brides-to-be out there to make sure that at least one of many variables that they’re dealing with (food, flowers, seating arrangement and the lot) should perform without a hitch. Therefore, I’ve put together this list of songs that one should avoid playing and hearing at a wedding.
Covering pop music’s less grand moments in time like when someone decided to give The Hof a recording contract to a joke of a YouTube “sensation” that some how became BFFs with folks like Katy Perry, these are the jams you want to steer clear of if you want your special day to go super spectacles.
Check out my guide to all these musical no-nos in the slideshow above!
