Congratulations on your engagement! We know that this is an exciting time in your life, and we are excited for you. Now, it is time to begin planning! You may have an idea about the dress and the cake, but have you thought about your wedding playlist? There are millions of wedding songs to choose from, and only a couple thousand that are wedding-worthy. No pressure, right? We have created a list of our top ten (new) songs for a wedding. Some are slow and romantic, and some have a great beat for dancing!
“Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
You have probably heard “Shape of You” and “Thinking Out Loud” on the radio, but have you heard “Perfect”? “Perfect” is an excellent song if you and your fiancé have known each other since you were young. Or, if you just genuinely feel lucky to call them yours. Who doesn’t feel blessed to be with the one they love?
“Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur
This romantic song is a beautiful choice for a wedding. “It’s just you and me until we’re grey and old. Just say you won’t let go” how romantic is that? When we get married, we are promising forever and always, until death. This song exemplifies these values.
“I Don’t Want to Live Forever” by Taylor Swift and ZAYNE
A favorite wedding song featuring the talents of One Direction’s ZAYNE and Taylor Swift, “I Don’t Want to Live Forever” could be a fun addition to a wedding playlist. Passion, undying love, and the hope of another day together. “I don’t want to live forever; I just want to keep calling your name.”
“Love Me Now” by John Legend
John Legend provides both a realistic and romantic view of love with this fantastic song. It is true that unexpected things happen, and we never know what day will be our last, “So, I’m gonna love you now” How sweet is that? John Legend is known for singing songs that encourage us to live in the moment and appreciate the time we have together. For that reason, he would be an excellent choice for any wedding playlist.
“Close” by Nick Jonas Featuring Tove Lo
“Close” is a great option if you are looking for a slow song with a fantastic beat. Favorite line? “Space was just a word made up by someone who was afraid to get close” Lots of people have trust issues, and this song addresses those fears and reminds the listener that love is worth the risk.
“Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran
One of the best dance songs of the year, “Shape of You” is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Why? Everyone has heard it on the radio, it has a great beat, and it’s relatable! Who isn’t completely infatuated with their fiance? If you choose this song, it’s sure to be a hit!
“Me Enamore” by Shakira
This upbeat love song is a great song to dance to with friends. Don’t speak Spanish? This title translates to “I fell in love.” This is quite fitting if you ask us! Shakira is a great option if you are looking to add fun and variety to your playlist.
“Closer” by the Chainsmokers Featuring Halsey
“Closer” is an excellent choice because it is a song that everyone knows, your guests can sing along, and it talks about an undying love. No matter what, the couple comes back together in the end.
“Cake by the Ocean” by DNCE
Be sure to have the bass up for this hit! My all-time favorite dance song, “Cake by the Ocean” is incredibly fun, energetic, and is sure to get your guests singing and dancing along.
“Something in the Way You Move” by Ellie Goulding
“Something in the Way You move” is upbeat, fun, and exciting. It’s a great wedding song because it expresses the deepest feelings of a newly engaged couple. “There is something in the way you move” there is something special about you.
No matter what you choose, be sure to mix it up with fast and slow songs. What songs do you have in mind for your wedding?
