Have you ever listened to a song and it made you think of a special person or a certain memory? We sure have. Even though music has its powers, couples often focus more attention on the decor and visual aspects of their wedding than the music. Although we adore wedding decor, we feel like music is just as important. Both are beautiful. When planning your wedding take advantage of music's power and select the right songs to set the mood. Remember these songs will be a part of you and your family's memories. 

We want to inspire you to select meaningful music that will make your special day even more special, so we thought it would be fun to switch it up this week and do something we've never done before. Since music is something we all share, we've compiled our friends' favorites {and a few of our own} to make a collaborative wedding playlist. We appreciate all your song suggestions. Listen + enjoy!
