What is your Song?

With it being Valentine’s Day, I figured i’d do a special playlist that features songs that couples consider “their song”. Last year around this time I did a post featuring wedding songs through the decades. This year, I decided i’d focus on just those who are in relationships because they have special songs as well! I created a survey asking for couples to submit their songs and lucky for me I ended up with 14! So- below i’ve attached a Youtube clip of the song so everyone can have a listen and those who submitted can celebrate their love (PS: some of these songs are just too cute)

Wedding Songs Through the Decades
