Songs about love that ends badly won't set the right tone for your wedding. They could even be a bit of a jinx. When you're choosing love songs, look for upbeat ditties that offer more than a pillow to cry on once the love affair is over. Your wedding day should reflect happy sentiments with inspiring songs about finding your special someone. "I Will Always Love You" makes it onto a lot of wedding music lists, but it's not a good fit.
