Her wedding playlist

By Joyce Villaflor, STC Mass Comm Intern


MANY girls dream of walking down the aisle, a beautiful bridal song playing in the background. While wedding preparations with all the details and plans take many months, one aspect of the ceremonies that merit a great deal of meticulous attention is the wedding playlist, for the wedding itself and the party. But if a bride-to-be picks one song for that special day, what would it be? These ladies share their thoughts about that wedding tune they wish to here when the time comes.

To Have and To Hold by Christian Bautista

“There are a lot of songs I would like to hear when I walk down the aisle but one of which that caught my heart was Christian Bautista’s “to have and to hold’. The lyrics from the song meant everything of what marriage should be. Marriage is the sealing of God’s gift of love and family to both man and woman. It is a covenant that should be protected. Don’t we all want that? A marriage full of love and happiness with someone whom we can call our own – for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part.” — Audrey Marie Alturas, Territory Manager

A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

My wedding would be the time that I deserve to have all eyes on me. While walking down the aisle, I’d love the song A Thousand Years to be played. It’s a love story sang as a love song. Although I get pretty emotional — It’s hard for me to stop crying once I start to cry — I guess I can forgive myself for that. That’s my special day anyway.” — Trixie Gayle Maraya, Nutritionist-Dietitian

Photograph by Ed Sheeran

“I like the song because aside from the lyrics that I can relate to, who doesn’t like photographs? It can capture happy moments and serves as a proof that something happened. Even if we can barely remember it, when we see a picture, we reminisce what happened during that moment. My wedding will be one of the most important moments in my life so there will be photographs for me to remember it.” — Rea Moreno Mantiza, Medtech

Beautiful Mess by Jason Mraz

I really do believe that the song being played while walking down the aisle presents an opportunity to tell a story, the story of the woman through the eyes of her groom. It is a description of who she is and why among the 7 billion people in the world, the groom chooses her to spend the rest of his life with. As I walk down the aisle, I would love to hear the song “Beautiful Mess” by Jason Mraz in the background. This is because, for me, loving someone that is perfect is easy. But to love someone with flaws and imperfections takes courage, patience, and acceptance. And that kind of love can survive more than a lifetime. — Christa Lou C. Derasin, RN, Topnotcher NLE 2017

La Vie En Rose by Louis Armstrong

“I can see each breakthrough in life as an initiation for our soul’s expression — uncomfortable but necessary. I fell in love with the song’s verse because it evokes a sense of yearning and hope. Hope that entails the object of my affection, the love of my life, to convince me that love does exist naturally.” — Noreen Joyce Rodis, 24, Medical Technologist
