10 Love Songs to Play at a Wedding
Everyone wants that perfect song to dance to with their newly betrothed. Some couples have that special song, and that's great, but many are stuck on just what song to play for that big dance. Here are 10 interesting, different, unique, and beautiful love songs to play at a wedding.
For the Ones Who Have Been Through Trials
Everyone has a past. Sometimes that past is dark, and people can't always reconcile with that when trying to forge a new relationship with someone. "Broken Together" by Casting Crowns captures that feeling of 'if we can't remember we're two broken people who need each other, how can this work?' Sometimes, people need to just be broken together.
For the Ones Who Were in Love Since a Young Age
Meeting that special someone at a young age, specifically at the age of 18, then the song named "18" by the boyband One Direction is the perfect little song to dance to.
Another great love song about young love is called "Check Yes or No" by George Strait, which tells of a love since the school days of passing notes.
For the Ones Who Love Country Music
There are quite a few amazing love songs in the country genre, and many are perfect for that special dance, but a fun yet still sweet love song is "It Must Be Love" by Alan Jackson. It's lighthearted yet still conveys that feeling of love people want to be expressed on their wedding day.
For the Ones Who Are Sappy Romantics
Anyone who feels like they have been waiting their whole lives for just the right person, and that person is the man or woman sharing the dance floor, "The One I've Waited For" by Austin Mahone just might be that special song.
For the Ones Who Are More Old School
Some people don't want any of the new music playing on the radios. They listen to the 80's station and hum along to the likes of Poison or Whitney Houston while washing dishes. For those people, there are a wide variety of love ballads out there, but none quite take the cake like "When I Look Into Your Eyes" by Firehouse.
"Love of a Lifetime", also by Firehouse, is another great love song.
For the Ones Who Are More Spiritual
Those more of the faith, whether Christian or otherwise, may find "Angel" by Casting Crowns to be that perfect song. This song isn't just for those who are more spiritual as it expresses the feeling of seeing that special someone as being the angel sent from above, seemingly out of nowhere and at the perfect time. Religious or not, most people could say they see their loved one as an angel.
For the Ones Who Are Less Conventional
For someone who might not be the best with words or expressing exactly how they feel in a way that feels magical and special, "How Your Love Makes Me Feel" by Diamond Rio might be the perfect song.
For those who don't want a conventional wedding love song (aka a slow ballad), "Symphony" by Clean Bandit ft Zara Larsson might be just the tune as it is lighthearted in both melody and lyrics.
For the Ones Who Don't Need Words
While love is usually spoken, those with someone for the long-term find little 'I love yous' in everything the person does, from their smile to a particular look on their face. Love doesn't always need words, and that's why "When You Say Nothing at All" by Alison Krauss and Union Station is the perfect song.
For the Ones Who Find Sanctuary in Their Partner
Many people see their partner as their safe place; the one person they can be real with and put their faith in to always be there. When dancing together on that day, playing "When I Look at You" by Miley Cyrus can express that feeling of comfort and safety when the world is falling down all around.
For the Ones Who Believe in Soulmates
Finding that one that instantly just clicks is such a beautiful feeling. It feels like coming home. "I Was Made For Loving You" by Tori Kelly featuring Ed Sheeran may be the perfect song to capture this feeling on that special day.
