What are some of the best songs you all had played at your wedding? We are especially needed processional songs, and cake cutting, father/daughter, mother/son dance songs!!

    Hey Lauren! WeddingWire actually has a bunch of suggestions in the articles below for every event you're looking for! I'll link to those articles below and then give my personal suggestions.

    28 Mother-Son Dance Songs That Will Move Mom To Tears

    19 Father-Daughter Dance Songs Your Dad Will Love

    17 Bride Entrance Songs For an Epic Walk Down the Aisle

    15 Wedding Cake Cutting Songs That Aren't Overplayed

    Oof, that's a lot of links. Sorry.

    For either parent dances, I like You'll Be In My Heart by Phil Collins. I think it's pretty universal, plus it can describe any sort of parent/child like relationship.

    For cake cutting, I'm a horrible person and like Cake by the Ocean by DNCE. It has nothing to do with cake, but it keeps the party going and I know that it's cake time when I hear that song.

    For processional, there are a bunch of different options, but today, I'm feeling Kina Grannis' Can't Help Falling in Love. It's becoming popular due to its appearance in Crazy Rich Asians, but it's for a reason. Do you think you'd want to walk down the aisle to a song with lyrics or just instrumental?
