Of course these are not the only wedding day songs out there, but these are just some fun options! The song list for your wedding will also depend on you and your partner. If you have certain songs that mean a lot to you all and may not be super popular, do not let that stop you from including it in your wedding! If you love a POP song or a song on the Top 40 right now, but think it doesn’t fit the vibe, you can always find a cover of the song to fit whatever vibe you are going for depending on the moment. These covers can be great for your first dance or the bride walking down the aisle.

If you’re having trouble with deciding on some songs, your wedding planner can be a great asset in helping you make some of those decisions! The more fun and personal your song list is, the better memories you, your partner, and your guests will have. 🙂 

Happy song hunting!
