Update from Julie herself :

Woohoo! So many good songs choice. Yippeee!

Alice — Thanks for the help. =) I’m a ABC so my Chinese (Cantonese) is very limited and I can’t really read Chinese especially the simplified one. There is no way I can look up the word in the dictionary. Hehe! Your recommendation are good. I went to a wedding where the theme songs was from Jolin and David. I thought it was so sweet. Oh! I think Jay Chou is pure amazing! Have you seen him played the piano? That guy totally rocks!
I’m pretty open to any songs as long as it is happy happy one. It can be either old or new. I have a mixture of elderly and some young people so I was thinking it would be good to play the songs during dinner time when things are a little slow. It could be a conversation starter as they remember so and so singer. I do not want to trouble you too much. You are too kind la. Going to CD shop. Wow! I wasn’t expecting that. =)

Hi Yvonne — Thanks for your help. Jackie has one of the nicest voice I have ever heard. When I was growing up, my uncle used to traveled to Hong Kong every month on business trip and bring me back a CD. His main purpose was for me to learn Chinese. I remember the first time I listen to (Your name and my last name), I actually cried. That what I wanted. Someone to love and a fairy tale story. Hehe! I am such a hopeless romantic.
On another note, I do not know who is Wang Lee Hom, but I willing and open to any suggestion.
As far as what type of music? I really listen to a variety. Jackie Cheung, Andy Lau, Joey Yeung and Kelly Chan have not disappoint me so far. Oh! And Sammi Cheng before she disappear from HK Entertainment.

Hi Mei — Thanks for the help. I had to chuckle when I saw your list. You got the same taste in singer as me. I grew up listening to many of them and kind of forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me.
Interesting to say, all I can remember about these singers are the heartbreaking songs. Do you know any happy or love songs that is good for wedding by these artist. Do not want breakup songs as my parents are traditional Chinese and I might be scold for it.

Hi Cass — Wow! I got a local in the HOUSE! How cool is that. I always love to meet new friends and thanks to MB’s blog I got to know quite a few of them. That so awesome! Anyhow, my e-mail is jchang808@gmail.com. E-mail me sometimes. Maybe we can go out for a meal or meet at Starbucks.

Hi Phoebe — Wow! Thanks for the songs choice. Yes! Yes! I agree with you. The songs choices are good. My mom actually really like your recommendation. Thank! =)

Hi Frances — Thanks for the good wishes. =)

Hi Snow — Thanks for the recommendation. Fairy Tale is one of my favorite, but I remember that the girl die in the end, right? Might not be a good choice for happy happy wedding song, but Kelly Chan is good. I enjoyed watching her concert especially the one that she announce her marriage to Alex. Such a cute couple and lovely songs la.

And of course, MB (Jan), the queen of this blog. Without your kind heart and time in getting this blog running, I would not be able to get so many responses. You are truly one of a kind. Thank you for everything you do for me. You went up and beyond what I expected. Wow! I am totally speechless.
You rock MB!!!
I think everyone on this blog can agree that we are truly bless and extremely lucky to have you for you have fill our lives with shows, movies, food and GREAT advice. Each and everyone one of us is busy with our daily tasks, but you never said no to offering help to any one of your gals. I am so honor to be your friend. And to do all of this without ever asking for anything else in return, that just one step above the rest.
Thank you, thank you…MB. I really really appreciate everything =)

    Congratulations Julie. I received a mail from Lina this morning (regarding this issue ) . I am very busy recently . I am sorry. I do not listen to chinese songs that much except cantonese , Japanese and a few others languages songs . I will only learn a particular chinese song only when I want to sing that song in the karaoke .Anyway if i come across any , i will inform you. And once again, Congratulations Julie.

  3. Congrats Julie. Sorry…i can’t help you as I am not familiar with Cantonese songs for wedding 🙂 I only know leslie cheung, jacky cheung and anita mui songs….heheheh. I am sure some of MB’s fans could help you. Have a great wedding, Julie.

    To everyone on Mb’s blog:
    Thank you in advance for all the good wishes and for helping me with the Chinese song. You gals are so AWESOME.

    Jan, I don’t know what to say. You left me speechless. I am forever indebted to you. Thank you for everything you do for me. You truly touched my heart and I am so grateful to you. Thank you very much for being a GREAT friend and helping me out so much. As my husband-to-be, put it…you totally ROCK!!! =)

  5. Julie Chang

    Hi Joey,
    Don’t worry about it. I understand that you are busy. =)

    I am so happy to have got to know you through Mb’s blog. You are indeed such a kind person and thanks for taking the time to educate me on skin care. I will always remember what you say.

    It funny that the songs we remember are always heartbreaking (end of relationship) songs. One of my favorite is the theme song from TVB’s Moonlight Resonance. I think the singer was Raymond Lam, but unfortunately can not used in wedding or else my mom will scold me la.

  6. Alice

    Congrats Julie! There is a particular website that you could download the chinese songs (I will check with my son). I’ll try to drop by the CD shop to see if there they have an album especially for weddings. Let me ask my friends as well, do you prefer male singers or female songs or duets? Alice Kwek from SGP.

  7. Alice

    I did a google search and found these ??????? by David Tao and Jolin – Today you will be married to me
    ?????by Wang Lee Hong – The sun and moon of the heart
    ?? by Wang Lee Hong – Only one
    ?? by David Tao – Everyday
    ?? by Jay Chou and Jolin – Roof

    OOps I forgot to ask if Julie knows how to read chinese words?

  8. Alice

    alamak, chinese words became question marks! here’s the link: http ://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/mandarin-wedding-songs

    Hi Julie! Congrats!!
    Classic: Jacky Cheung ???-Your first name,my surname ????,????
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwASVwlbb-E
    Jacky Cheung’s music is really nice but may be a little “old fashioned” but I think it sounds amazing still. Grew up listening to him…
    If you want more modern , Alice suggestions are nice with Jay Chou and Wang Lee Hom! What kind of music are you interested in?

  10. Mei

    Hello Julie! I recommend this site to you: http://www.hkvpradio.com/. Select Tune in Now… You can listen to old Canto-pop songs from ’70s to ’90s. I def agree with Jay Chou for R&B songs. Other Canto singers Faye Wong, Aaron Kwok, Andy Lau, def Jacky Cheung, Sammi, Sam Hui, Hacken Lee, Beyond. Modern stuff – Boy’z, Justin Lo, Leo Ku, Eric Suen, Eason Chan and possibly Twins (if anyone still likes them).

  11. Cass

    Hey Julie, I’m from Hawaii, too!! If MB doesn’t mind being the messenger, she can give you my email address and you can contact me. I have some Chinese songs that might work for a wedding.

    Cass

  12. Frances

  13. snow

    Congrats Julie! I recommend “Fairytale” by Michael Wong a.k.a. Guang Liang and ‘Xie Shou You Ren Jian’ by Zhang Zhen. I can send the songs to you. Do you like Kelly Chen? Some of her songs are quite nice too.

  14. Julie Chang

    Hi little cute chloe,
    Thanks for the song. It was so romantic. Yippee! I found the last song for our slide song when we show the pictures we took at Mona Lisa Bridal in Hong Kong. I was looking for something in English with a guy and girl singing. Totally perfect! Thanks. You totally ROCKS!

    (MB) Jan,
    Have I mentioned you totally ROCK!!! I remember that there was a song my parents dance to on their wedding day that was something like the one you suggested my David Tao. Was he around in the late 70’s? I wondering if that is the song because it would totally take my parents by surprise and put tears in their eyes. Woohoo!

    Thank you! Thank you!

    Hi! I chanced upon your site while I was searching for Chinese wedding songs for my friend too. I find the songs by ???(Fish Leong) real nice. Most of her songs are ballads so I think they should be suitable for weddings. Also, I like the song ????? by ??? and ???.

    Congrats! Julie, Wish you all the best and a great wedding!
    sorry I don’t have any recommendations for wedding songs. ( I love the old songs from Leslie Cheung, Hacken Lee & Alan Tam) don’t know which song is appropriate.

  23. keen

    Hi Julie, Congrats. I don’t know much about chinese songs but I have a few of my Line dancing friends who are also “die hard” Karaoke singers. One of them sang a beautiful song on her son’s wedding day. I have called her and tried to get the name of the song and the singer for you. OK? Cheers!

  24. christina

    Hi Julie, you can use this song ” SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME” and you can dance with your the other part while playing this song! congratulation!

    Hello all,
    I wanted to express my appreciation for all the songs –this is making me tear up. All of you gals are so thoughtful, kind, and simplity the BOMB!! Yippee!

    I haven’t had the chance to go through everything yet, but will try to do it soon. On another note, I do not read Chinese–therefore I did not download any Chinese character program. Sorry I am not able to see some of the messages and songs that are in Chinese.

    Wedding can be fun, but also stressful. They do not plan themselves, but with the help of many people–things might not be too overwhelming. If there any one in the future that is planning to get marry. Let me know. I might be a good sounding board. Trust me. I’m living it day by day as I hand write all invitations and thank you cards/ notes for the wedding shower, design all the bridemaids and groommen shirts, works with all the vendors (my phone doesn’t stop ringing) and in the process is trying to buy a home.

    So as you can see, I am extremely thankful to all of you for helping me out. Not only have you introduce me to new artists, but also lessen my stress. Thank you!!!

    Jan (MB)–Don’t worry. When the papers finally go through and we get the house (the seller counter us twice). I will take a picture of the kitchen and send it to you. I didn’t forget. Hehe! =)

    Hi Julie,

    I thought of a song you might like for your wedding. It’s from Burning Flame III. It’s by the main characters in the show. Sorry I can’t help you with the name since I don’t know it. But it was in episode 17. Maybe if you look up the theme song, you’ll find it. Good luck.

  29. Serene

    Hi Julia,
    Congralutaion on your coming wedding ! Wishes both of you Happiness, may you both Complement and Support each othere throughout your life.

    My suggestion is Teresa Teng song “The Moon Represents My Heart” (???????). She is very popular with overesea Chineses and the older folk will most probably remember her.

    The new songs I suggest are the opening theme song of drama “Step ????”; “I’m So In Love With You” by Bernice Liu.

    Another Mandarin with English song “???????” translate as “Today You will Marry Me” by ??/??? is very meaningful. Listen to it on http://www.haoting.com/htmusic/125573ht.htm. I am not sure which TV drama.

    Raymond Lam & Linda Chung, My Heart Understands (??) insert song for Heart of Greed (2007).

    I found them in the TVB drama CD.
