  1. We had ‘Wear Sunscreen’ by Baz Luhrman as a reading in our wedding, was really fun and light hearted, it went down really well!

  2. Of course, Can’t Help Falling In Love is there, my absolute favorite too although I like the UB40 version more sometimes. :p One wedding that was really memorable for me was my cousin’s destination wedding in Bali, they booked an all-inclusive wedding package off this global wedding marketplace https://ibride.com/, everything was perfect, the resort, the food, the ceremony, but what made it really fun was the DJ collected all our favorite romantic songs and played it the whole night! Some songs gave us such nostalgia. 🙂
