Nothing says romance quite like great R&B music. Rhythm and Blues is the ideal genre of music to be a perfect accompaniment to any wedding celebration. Someone once said that a wedding without love songs is like eating cornflakes sans the milk. R&B is well known for their soulful ballads and this can deepen the romantic mood you are trying to create.
A wedding party is an event that should be wrapped in romance and fantasies. The music you choose to play at your wedding plays an important role in achieving just that mood. R&B music has been long known for its smooth sounds and its ability to create a romantic ambience that no other genre of music can compare with.
Luther Vandross is one famous contemporary R&B balladeer, and even though he has passed, his music and legend live on. You can choose from many great hits to perfectly complement your wedding reception or even play an R&B tune or two during the ceremony. One such love song you may want to consider by this great artist is “Here and Now,” which is considered a classic wedding song.
Stevie Wonder has been around for ages. He is not only a record selling singer; he is also an award winning songwriter. You can choose from numerous Stevie Wonder hits that will have your guests thinking your reception is one enchanted evening. One of Stevie Wonder’s hits is “Ribbon in the Sky,” and it is said to be one of the most lovely and romantic songs that can be found.
If you want to get the water works started among the crowd, look no further than the song “On Bended Knee” by Boyz II Men. This song may have sappy written all over it, but it is a song that suits the occasion to a T. Another love song that you might think is a bit melodramatic is “Back at One” by Brian McKnight. Slow dancing to these R&B tunes at a wedding is about as romantic as one can get.
If you are unsure about what kind of music you want played at your wedding ceremony and reception, go out and listen to some smooth R&B sounds. Even if you don’t go with exclusive R&B music, you should choose a few of the more romantic songs to ensure that the mood of your wedding is sweet, soulful and romantic.
