SURVEY: The 48 Songs Most Frequently Banned at Weddings

Ah, it’s that time of the year again.  Love fills the air.  Flowers bloom in fields.  Birds chirp happily as they fly in the cloudless skies.  And couples decide to join their lives together in holy matrimony with a big party!  Now you may think that you can request whatever you want to hear you might be mistaken.  Some couples actually ban songs from their big day.

Sounds crazy, I know right!  I can’t say that I’ve ever been to a wedding where these songs weren’t played but apparently they are the ones that couples don’t want to hear.
