Singing a duet with the love of your life at your wedding is something everyone should do! Not only will you and your new spouse enjoy it, but your guests will have some great entertainment, that they’ll never forget.
Which song you end up choosing will depend entirely on you and your significant other, but there are quite a few songs that we feel were written with wedding duets in mind.
Here are some of the best duet wedding songs to consider:
“I Finally Found Someone” by Brian Adams and Barbra Streisand
This song is perfect for couples who were friends long before they became lovers.
