    @hollyberry4:  Eh! I wouldn’t! I think it sets a bad omen on the wedding lol. It’s not a nice song even though it sounds nice. Bad Romance by Lady Gaga is a great dance song, however there’s no way it’s playing at my wedding lol. Just do what’s right for you but there are plenty of other happy sounding songs with sweet lyrics!

    @hollyberry4:  ” I’m relived, When you said goodbye, my whole world shined”

    I vote no, for sure.

    I wouldn’t do it. I’m obssessed with the meaning of lyrics though and it would really bother me. Had a friend use an instrumental verision of the Killers Mr Brightside. I spent too long during the ceremony thinking WTF and going over the lyrics in my head.

    If it was just instrumental I would say GO FOR IT! But if you include the lyrics then I say no.

    I really like Lana Del Rey’s Young & Beautiful song but the lyrics rub me the wrong way….as if I’m assuming I’m just sooooo beautiful so I’m looking into the orchestra/instrumental version.

    @Bella-Bellini:  Agreed. My future SIL had the bridal party walk into “Marry You” by Bruno Mars. The lyrics “looking for something dumb to do, hey baby, I think I wanna marry you” STILL bother me. So you’re saying getting married is dumb and you *think* you want to get married??  No thanks. LOL!

    My friend played “Call Your Girlfriend” by Robyn at her wedding. (It’s about cheating.) First I side-eyed, then I laughed, then I got up and danced because it’s an awesome song. Do whatever makes you happy, people aren’t going to be paying attention to the lyrics.

    @hollyberry4:  I say if you both like the song, GO FOR IT! Just because you play a song with breakup lyrics at your wedding, doesn’t mean you’re doomed to split in the future.. I was married once before, we play a song that said forever and always. We divorced.. Ummmm, so did the forever song not work either! LoL.. Just silly.. A song is a song. Go for it, if you both like. And, as you walk you will be laughing knowing the lyrics. And, most of the people won’t be listening to the lyrics, they will be focused on you guys! Have a wonderful wedding day!

    Honestly I wouldnt do it because im all about the lyrics. The idea of just the instrumental is a good idea but If your hearts set on it just do it. A friend i had made her “song” with her and her man Joe – baby where you at. After I explained to her the song was about them breaking up badly, him finding out he is dying and ony has 4 weeks and not knowing where she is, she still said it was their song. So I lived and let live.

    We walked out to “She’s No Lady, She’s Your Wife” by lyle Lovett. Most people didn’t notice, the ones who did laughed. People don’t pay anywhere near as much attention as you do to stuff like that. I think it’s fine.

    If you’re really worried about it maybe have the DJ cue it to a part that’s not so overrtly breaky-uppey if that’s possible.

    Yeah, go for it!! I don’t think it really matters. I mean, how many people play the ‘MARRY YOU’ Song by bruno mars thinking its cute and romantic when all it’s really saying is lets get totally  plastered and make an irresponsible off the cuff decision that we will likely regret in the morning?!”

    Buuuut, people still love it, and play it, and everyone’s happy! so yeah. I echo the other PP’s sentiments of do what makes you happy!
