This article is a list of acoustic songs that would be great for your wedding ceremony or reception (for dinner or first dance.) A great way to to add a little class to your wedding is to play some acousic versions of songs that people may already recognize. This way, they enjoy the different version, but you keep the atmosphere that you are trying to set for the moment.
The right selection of an acoustic cover song can satisfy the musical tastes of both young and old. I new pop song can be stripped down by Daughtry, and played on an acoustic guitar. Then, the next thing you know, some of your older guests may be tapping their foot along to a song written by Lady GaGa. (Check out Daughtry’s Poker Face.)
I have also plugged them before here, but I really like Boyce Avenue. They take new pop songs, and some classics that everybody love, and turn them into great cover tune acoustic versions. Here is a list of some acoustic music that you may want to use for your wedding:
