If you’re looking for unique wedding songs, one of the best first places to look (besides this site!) for inspiration is celebrity weddings. While we might not want to admit that “we used the same wedding song as Fergie!” (not that there’s anything wrong with Fergie…we love her), celebrities often think outside the box when it comes to wedding planning, and for that reason we think looking at a list like the one below is a great starting point. Why you might not want to use any of these celebrity wedding songs at your wedding, perhaps they can spark another idea, or encourage you to look at different songs by the same artists.
Now on to the main attraction! We chose these celebrity wedding songs because they’re a little bit different than ones we usually see played. And what’s kind of interesting to see from this list is that they all–for the most part–seem to fit each celebrity’s personality or style. Except for Jennifer Aniston’s song choice! That one still kind of throws us for a loop.
