Choosing wedding songs for your big day can be tricky, there’s just so much choice out there.
2017 has been such a great year for amazing music, so we wanted to give you a helping hand when it comes to choosing the right tune for you and your partner.
We’ve handpicked the best songs for your big day – from emotional first dance ballads to upbeat party music, we’ve thought of everything!
First Dance Songs
Choosing your first dance song is a really important decision – it’s the song that almost defines you as a couple, and should be personal to you. Couples looking for a modern choice will love the selection that we’ve gathered from 2017!
Ed Sheeran’s release of ÷ dominated the charts in 2017, and ‘Perfect’ was by far one of the most beautiful and romantic songs on the entire album. Ed took the song to new heights this December by releasing a duet version with Beyoncé, a replica of the song that is guaranteed to be a popular choice for weddings in 2018.
Our favourite lyric: “We are still kids but we’re so in love, fighting against all odds.”
Couples looking for a slow, romantic and meaningful song for their first dance will just adore this tune by the award-winning Sampha.
Our favourite lyric: “And you took hold of me and never, never, never let me go.”
Malibu – Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus showed a more sensitive side with her song ‘Malibu’ and it’s the perfect choice for couples who want their wedding day and first dance to represent a new chapter in their lives.
Our favourite lyric: “I wanna thank you with all of my heart, it’s a brand new start, a dream come true, in Malibu.”
Meant to Be – Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line
This country-pop song is all about fate and things coming together eventually. This is something a lot of couples can relate to, making it a great choice for a first dance.
Our favourite lyric: “We got nothing but time, as long as you’re right here next to me, everything’s gonna be alright.”
