First dance at a wedding

The Most Popular Wedding Songs

The music you choose for your wedding day is as important as the wedding rings you exchange or the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.

It should mean something special to you and your partner and many venues allow you to pick out music for each key moment in your ceremony, including:

  • The bride’s walk down the aisle
  • Music when signing the register and certificate
  • Music to walk out to as a newlywed couple
  • Your first dance song
  • The get-up and dance song for everyone to enjoy

But there are so many songs out there, if one doesn’t instantly spring to mind – or it doesn’t feel appropriate – choosing your music can feel tough. This is why we’ve put together a roundup of the top 100 weddings songs featuring the most romantic and popular tunes for you to take your pick of in time for your big day. We’ve broken them down into categories, to make things easier too!

It’s no surprise that Ed Sheeran features heavily on the list, as well as oldies such as Etta James’s ‘At Last’ and Frank Sinatra’s ‘The Way You Look Tonight’. Check out our suggestions below…
