Wedding Songs

You’ll remember the music and songs played at your wedding for years to come. From the moment you walk down the aisle through to your first dance, your wedding songs should reflect your personalities as a couple and hold great meaning for you both.

Whether you have a harpist, a string quartet, pianist, opera singer, band, DJ, playlist or sing yourself, you’ll forever associate these songs with your big day. Enjoy the process of choosing your wedding songs and give yourself time to do so. Happy picking!

Wedding Songs By Order of the Day

You might not even be aware exactly how many moments there are during your wedding that you’ll need to pick out songs for, like your vows exchange, reception entrance and even the cake cutting. We’ve set them out below in the order you need them during the big day, each one packed with plenty of music ideas and a Spotify playlist to make the process of choosing your wedding songs a little less overwhelming!

Wedding Songs By Genre

Your big day will call for lots of different types of music. You'll want relaxed background music for the wedding breakfast and high-energy tracks for the evening reception. A vintage wedding might call for a '50s swing band; a solo guitarist for a folksy, boho day; and a black-tie affair suits a string quartet or harpist. We've broken the wedding music down by genre so you can find a playlist that suits your day.
