Just wondering what anyone else out there is using for God-centered love songs….I haven’t found really anything outside of Steven Curtis Chapman’s "I will Be Here" which is an amazing song…but I’ve heard it at so many weddings I wouldn’t feel it’s ours.
Does anyone have suggestions? We need good Christian love songs! (mostly for the reception)
"This Day" by Jadon Lavik is a beautiful song about two lives becoming one, and it’s very God centered as well. I used this as my processional song. You’ll def want to check it out. Plus One also had a couple of fun love songs. There’s also the song "The One" by a Christian group called Phat Chance. Those are all I can think of at the moment. If I think of any other ones I’ll def let you know!
Haha…that should have been a "duh!" thing for me too since that was our first dance song! DUH! I can’t believe I didn’t think of it! I guess I’m thinking of songs by Christian artists only…haha. Need to broaden my scope a little…
We have two picked out so far that aren’t necessarily "love songs" but fit with the ceremony. We’re doing "How He Loves Us" as I walk down the aisle. I’m going to wait until the line about "my heart turns violently inside my chest" to start walking down the aisle — if you haven’t heard it you should look it up; it’s beautifu! (though not your typical wedding song). We’re going to end with "The Blessing" by John Waller about how we’ll "choose to be a blessing for life" (also and amazing song; one of my favorites).
In case anyone else is looking for this, the album "When You Love Someone (Songs of Love and Friendship)" is a compilation CD of Christian artists covering love songs. Nicole Nordemans cover of "In Your Eyes" is AMAZING!
