I'm planning to get married soon - I'd thought to sing my bride a song at the reception.

Any thoughts on suitable traditional songs?

Thanks!

I should have requested suggestions of suitably romantic traditional songs :)

Thanks!

Hi, Steve!
    Firstly, Congratulations! May you both have many, many joyous years together.
    At both of the weddings I have sung at, Red is the Rose was requested. At the second, a few weeks ago, the bride and groom had my band sing it during the ceremony, following readings. It was a very beautifully done evening.
    Best wishes,
~Kristoffer

Many beautiful Burns songs....eg off the top of my head:
Of a' the airts
My love is like a red red rose

But there are loads more, and most set to traditional tunes or tunes of his time (late 1700s

I know it's not what you asked for, but my son got married last year, and wrote his own song for his bride. It was absolutely beautiful, not a dry eye in the house!

As I said, DH and TT. My son's name is Ewan: admittedly there are about half a dozen ways of spelling it, but my son and Mr McColl are both Ewan.

Hope you find a good song, anyway, Steve.
If you're at all into musicals "Some Enchanted Evening" from South Pacific has great lyrics for such an occasion.

[please please please
don't let this thread become a discussion about EM's name!
Don't even tell Jim or Dick that another thread with His name in it even exists.

;-) btw TB - it's "Mac...."]

Ok Freddy, I'm suitably chastised and mortified at my mistake, but I did try also to get the thread back on track - Songs for a Wedding!

If the bride to be has a good trad. poetic name you might find a personalised trad. style song to go with it. Much of all this depends on the type of vocal range/style and instrumentation you have to accompany the song.
