Music can powerfully intertwine with our memory and emotions. The first time you heard that song on that movie; you know, when those two were finally reunited after being apart for the whole film? If I played that song for you now, you’d instantly associate the music with those feelings of joy and happiness.
Why not use one of these songs to bring those feelings to your wedding ceremony.
Here’s a list (not in any particular order) of ten songs from movies that you might have strong feelings about.
