It’s almost summer! If you’re preparing to wed in the warmer months, the big day is fast approaching. Summer weddings have a lightness about them, even if the heat is bearing down. Everyone is relaxed and in good spirits – and the music played at your nuptials should reflect that! Whether you need tunes for a laid-back cocktail hour or hot hits for the dance floor, consider adding one of the following songs to the set list of your band or DJ. Some of the tunes reflect summer vibes in the lyrics, while others just exude the spirit of the season in the beat. There’s a little something for everyone here, from past classics to the most current of radio hits.
Even if you’re not getting married this summer, you may find these songs will help set the mood for any pre-wedding events, such as the engagement party, bridal shower, or bachelorette party – or just to keep your spirits up while in the throes of planning!
