Music plays an important role in the mood and emotion of any wedding, which makes it a huge detail that should not be overlooked. When planning an Athens, Georgia wedding, this detail can be tailored to fit the theme of your wedding by using music that incorporates the state of Georgia and the city of Athens. Athens has been home to many influential bands who represent the charm of this city in the sound of their music. Here are four great songs that should definitely play at your wedding!

“m’lover” – Kishi Bashi

If smooth songs with a hint of violin sound perfect for your wedding, then you should definitely be sure to include this song from Athens-based artist Kishi Bashi. With lyrics like, “Would you be everything I wanted, in a lover and an accomplice, could you be her?,” this song will capture the hearts of your guests and show the love behind this important day.


“Georgia Peaches” – Lynyrd Skynyrd

Georgia peaches across the state are going to go crazy when this song is played at a wedding. The southern rock band might be more famous for their song, “Sweet Home Alabama,” but that shouldn’t stop you from playing “Georgia Peaches” at an Athens wedding.
