Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are embracing their love of the ’80s for their wedding song. The longtime couple got engaged this past fall and plans for the big day are already under way.
On Wednesday, Shelton appeared on The Tonight Show Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he was asked about his first song at the wedding.
“I think it’s called the wedding march,” Shelton, 44, quipped before host Fallon clarified he meant his first dance song.
Shelton then pulled out his phone and said, “It’s ‘If You Leave’ from the Pretty In Pink Soundtrack. We talked about this. We both love the song. We’re both fans of the ’80s, why not? Don’t you think that would be a great one, though? We’ve literally talked about that.”
The 1981 classic from the Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark goes, “If you leave, don’t leave now/Please don’t take my heart away/Promise me just one more night/Then we’ll go our separate ways.”
The couple is very excited for their big day, but Stefani, 51, plans to keep things minimal.
“We’re keeping it very simple. Really simple,” the “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” singer said last month on Late Night With Seth Meyers. “I think the guest list will not have a lot of musicians. It’ll be like my mom and my dad. It’s literally going to be just family. We are looking forward to that, though.”
