Most Cliché Wedding Songs

Think of every wedding you've ever been to. Between the toasts and the bouquet toss, the traditions can feel so run into the ground you forget why you are there in the first place: to celebrate a couple who found each other in this crazy world and fell in love.

Just because the celebration of the union between two people is generally full of an inordinate amount of custom doesn't mean the playlist has to be. Sadly, most couples will hire a DJ who puts little thought into what type of music is best suited for the bride and groom and merely cues up what he or she believe the attendees want to hear. It robs the couple of the best way they have to inject a little of their own personality into the celebration.
