Fight Song by Rachel Platten

This product was recommended by Samantha Griffith from Loveys Baby Media Inc.

Seeing my good friend walk down the aisle to marry her college crush was moving. However, I was caught off guard when the music started. The song she chose for her wedding was Rachel Platten’s Fight Song. The Fight Song was an unusual song to hear during a bridal walk since it’s not a slow love song. It is upbeat, but I have to admit it worked. She was radiating with confidence.

When I had the chance to talk to her, I asked about the song choice. She said she wanted to feel empowered while walking down the aisle. She continued explaining that even though she’s leaving singlehood, being a mom and a wife is a different battle that she’s preparing to be strong at. Facing marriage with Rachel Platten’s Fight Song gave her the confidence to take on the new challenge..


Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys can certainly capture everyone’s attention and Girl on Fire is the perfect ballad to celebrate the female empowerment of the bride. This song is powerful and uses captivating lyrics to set the tone for the marriage. Keys sings that Everybody stands, as she goes by, Cause they can see the flame that’s in her eyes, Watch her when she’s lighting up the night. Her words tell us that in addition to celebrating the marriage, we are also celebrating the bride.
