Need a wedding playlist but don’t know how to start building it? Fret not, we just built the ultimate must-have musical list for your big day:
1. Variations of the Kanon by Johann Pachelbel – George Winston
This is a classic that is generally played during the entrance of the bride or when the newlyweds take their first walk down the aisle together. It’s a beautiful classical piece with a modern twist by the contemporary pianist George Winston. You can never go wrong with this.
2. If – Bread
You’re probably also familiar with this. It’s a favourite among couples for its moving lyrics and lovely melody. If is also a great song to have your first dance together as a wedded couple.
3. Just the Way You are – Bruno Mars
How can you not have some Bruno Mars for your wedding? The talented singer and songwriter has a couple of romantic songs that are suitable for the most important day of your life.
4. Marry You – Bruno Mars
Written just for this occasion!
5. Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
Only the most romantic singer-songwriter ever. Ed’s famous single is basically a musical version of a wedding vow.
6. Photograph – Ed Sheeran
That line “Inside these pages you just hold me, and I won’t ever let you go” just melts us.
7. A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
Just because it’s the theme song for Twilight‘s Edward Cullen and Bella Swan’s wedding, doesn’t mean you can’t use it for yours. This is one of the most popular songs that couples like to use for their weddings these days.
8. All of Me – John Legend
The lyrics is a declaration of love in its raw form.
9. Marry Me – Train
A great song from a great band. This is one of our all-time favourites.
9. How Deep is Your Love – Bee Gees
If you and your future spouse love oldies, then this is a must-have in your playlist. Because “we belong to you and me”.
10. Something About the Way You Look Tonight – Elton John
This is the perfect first dance song! The melody is soothing, lyrics beautiful, and it just gets you in the wedding mood.
11. The Way You Make Me Feel – Michael Jackson
Try some Michael Jackson for some upbeat rhythm to end the lovely evening!
12. Rule the World – Take That
From the original soundtrack of Stardust comes this song by 90s boy band, Take That. Perfect song for you guys if the both of you grew up in the 90s.
13. Can’t Help Falling in Love – Elvis Presley
For the both of you if you have an old soul. Who better to serenade you during your wedding than the King himself?
