Are you religious? If you are Catholic, for instance, you may have restrictions on what can be performed. If you are a Christian, try looking up Christian wedding songs. Amy Grant has a whole library of appropriate songs that are easily learned and performed.

As a professional wedding singer, I’ve sung showtunes, rock ballads, classical numbers, etc. Basically, you name it, and it’s been done. The most popular songs, however, are “The Prayer” and “Ave Maria.”

Do you listen to “classic” music like The Temptations, Supremes, etc.? “Ribbon in the Sky” by Stevie Wonder is one of my favorite songs to sing at weddings! Natalie Cole has a great song called “I Do.” “Let’s Get Married” by Jagged Edge is also a choice.

Since you want something that a lot of people know, I’d go the Stevie Wonder route or another classic or standard song (I can make more recommendations). Going too poppy can turn some people off.

I am a teacher, and a group of my students are going to sing a song while we are signing the papers. I would love to hear some more ideas as well!

“This is My Promise” by the Temptations (a bit harder for a solo singer)

“I’ll Be There” (Michael Jackson or Mariah Carey) is SUCH A WONDERFUL wedding song, especially for right after vows.

“Cant Help Falling In Love” is pretty timeless.

“All My Love” by KC and JoJo is a bit contemporary.

“Endless Love” by Diana Ross

“I. O. U. Me” by BeBe and CeCe Williams is fabulous, but I haven’t seen it done at a wedding before.

@labluver:  I think there is a great chorus version of “Signed Sealed Delievered.” It’s pretty tounge and cheek… but oh so cute!

I’ve sung at many a wedding, and Ava Cassidy’s ‘Songbird” is gorgeous. It’s very pretty any the accompanying instrument could easily be a guitar or a piano, whichever is availeble.

Our singer is doing “At Last” by Etta James right after the vows. We almost did “From this Moment” by Shania Twain. Both are great for the middle of a ceremony!

How about Con te Partiero (with you i will go) . . . it’s beautiful. . . but more popera than pop . . you could have it sung with the English lyrics.
