    You need to read the full lyrics to these songs not just the chorus. I’ll Be There For You is about breaking up and Always is about him being obsessed with her. Not wedding song material at all.

      Hi Sherri, thank you for your feedback. The songs selected may not be perfect for every wedding. However, true Bon Jovi fans have selected these two songs for years as their love songs. Couples can review the complete lyrics and make a decision if they want the song to represent their love on their wedding day.

    Erm, (You Want To) Make A Memory is all about having a one night stand with an old flame and cheating in the process. Definitely not wedding appropriate! Even if I do love the song.

      Hi Heather. Thanks for your feedback. We are in agreement on being a great song. Would there be another Bon Jovi song you would put in its place?
