With the start of the ‘unofficial beginning of summer 2012′ this week, many engaged couples are putting together their beach wedding playlists. To help our brides & grooms pick out some great beach songs for their wedding, we turned to The Sands at Atlantic Beach for their top picks. After all, The Sands at Atlantic Beach has what you need for a perfect beach wedding – without the hassle of flying down to the Carribbean.
Here are their Top 5 Beach Wedding Songs – modern songs destined to be beach classics. And your chance to be a trend setter! Imagine your perfect wedding, set against the backdrop of the surf, with the sounds of one of these great songs punctuating the moment. Nothing short of amazing!
5. Jack Johnson – “Bubble Toes”
From a sustainable lifestyle to lasting love songs, Jack Johnson is the ultimate portrayal of the modern, eco-friendly beach bum. The Hawaiian surfer/musician’s sound on “Bubble Toes” is one that is so close to the ocean that you can almost feel the gritty bits of sand between your toes.
4. Plain White T’s – “Rhythm of Love”
The “Hey There Delilah” crew is back with another acoustic guitar led track, but this one screams Long Island, not Manhattan. Plain White T’s offer up a song that makes us feel like another endless summer is upon us and that love is just as timeless.
3. Bruno Mars – “Marry You”
Incorporating his trademark R&B into a beach reaching reggae groove, Bruno Mars marries the love of his life shortly after meeting her. They escape to “this little chapel on the boulevard” and proceed right to their nuptials. Whether you’ve been planning your beach wedding at The Sands Atlantic Beach or you have just met the love of your life, this song captures the feeling of being in love perfectly.
2. Jason Mraz – “I’m Yours”
Hat wearing, joke cracking Jason Mraz topped the charts in the summer of 2008 with his hit “I’m Yours” and forever embedded himself in beach music playlists everywhere. The simple line from the chorus, “This is our fate, I’m yours,” would serve as perfect line in a vow if you’re still looking for one.
1. Michael Franti & Spearhead – “Say Hey (I Love You)”
This theme from the video on The Sands Atlantic Beach homepage by Michael Franti and his group, Spearhead, is number one in our hearts and on our list of new wedding songs. Capturing the sounds of Jamaica on the track by using the classic reggae rhythm section of Sly and Robbie, Michael Franti’s biggest hit to date is all about the beach and being in love.
