moments of your wedding day? We are here to help! Here are some ideas to help get you started. Keep

in mind these are just some ideas, definitely customize your wedding songs and music to fit your taste!



Canon in D by Pachelbel is about as classic as it gets. It is a wonderful song for walking down the aisle, it

just works!

At Last by Etta James has the perfect lyrics for a ceremony: “At last, my love has come along. My lonely

days are over. And life is like a song.” Perfection.

A Thousand Years by Christina Perri was made popular by Twilight (don’t pretend like you’re not a fan!)

and the lyrics from this song also make it a beautiful ceremony song. Que fairy table vibes.

The Winner Is by Mychael Danna and DeVotchKa will add a touch of whimsy but also includes some

dreamy and romantic violin that you can time perfectly for when you walk down the aisle.

Marry You by Bruno Mars would be a super fun song to walk or dance down the aisle too! This song

would be perfect for a couple going for a less traditional wedding.

*Keep in mind you can choose more than one song for your ceremony, it’s completely up to you! Just

make sure your DJ or musicians know when to play each song!

Grand Entrance

This Will Be (An Everlasting Love) by Natalie King Cole is such a fun and happy song and would be a

perfect grand entrance song!

Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours) by Stevie Wonder is definitely a classic option and won’t disappoint!

Happy by Pharrell Williams would be an awesome song to dance your way into your reception.

Best I Ever Had by Drake would be a great entrance song if you’re also introducing your wedding party.

You might even consider giving your wedding party some props like sunglasses to add a little extra flare.

If you have a lot of kids at your wedding, you might want to request the “clean version.”

Don’t Stop 'Til You Get Enough by Michael Jackson is almost guaranteed to have all your guests dancing

with you as you make your grand entrance. You can’t help but move your hips when you hear this classic


Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon is another song guaranteed to get your guests dancing out of their seats with you as you enter into your reception as newlyweds.

*Don’t forget to also consider these for your reception playlist!

Couple’s First Dance

Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley is an oldie but goodie in every way. You can’t go wrong with

this one!

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran is another song for all the romantics out there. These lyrics are golden!

Amazed by Lonestar is a great option for country lovers. It’s such a sweet song and will have your guests

singing along as you enjoy your first dance together.

I Don't Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith is a classic rock love song that never gets old!

The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra would be a great song if you’re wanting to do a

choreographed first dance. Who doesn’t love some Frank?!

Until I Found You by Stephen Sanchez is quickly taking over the internet and for good reason. It’s a great

ballad with a 1950s sound that is hard not to love!

*If you love the lyrics to a particular song but not necessarily the sound, search for covers of it and you might find a version that fits your taste a little better.

Parent/Loved One/Daughter/Son Dance

My Wish by Rascal Flats is such a sweet song but don’t forget your tissues with this one!

I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack is another one we have to mention. Its touching lyrics make it a

great song for this special moment.

Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion.... we’re tearing up just thinking about this one, so good!

My Little Girl by Tim McGraw would be such a sweet song for a father/daughter dance.

Forever Young by Bob Dylan is another great song to consider for this special dance.

*Keep in mind that for these slower dances, you can always ask your Band or DJ to shorten the songs a little.

We hope this list helps you find the perfect song you’re looking for or at least sparks some other ideas

for you! Good luck!
