Nothing is worse feeling obligated to dance to the same songs you heard at the last five weddings. Here are some love songs that fit the wedding bill and area as unique as the bride and groom.
“One More Time”
Make an entrance at your reception with Daft Punk’s “One More Time.” Their French house/disco vibe will get the party rocking. Because a wedding really is the time to celebrate and “don’t stop the dancing.”
“Love You More”
Contemporary folk artist Alexi Murdoch’s “Love You More” is the perfect song for those childhood slideshow photos or a must-play on your live band’s playlist during the wedding reception.
“Come On Let’s Go”
Indie fans and newlyweds will love the lyrics of Andrea Marie’s “Come On Let’s Go,” making it the perfect exit song at the end of the ceremony. “Come on, let’s go / Grab my hand, we will fly / Don’t be afraid / Don’t be anxious or wonder why / So come on, let’s go.”
“Closer to You”
“I’ve never been knocked off my feet / ’Til you came along,” says Brett Dennen’s “Closer to You.” The folk song will invite all music lovers and couples to sway a little closer on the dance floor.
“You Can Never Tell”
Rock ‘n’ roll tunes in fun song “You Never Can Tell” by Chuck Berry share the story of a “teenage wedding, and the old folks <who> wished them well.” As one of the most influential pioneers in rock ‘n’ roll, Berry was also known for “Johnny B. Goode” and “Maybellene.”
“I don’t want much / I just want to be a better man / To by baby,” sings American Leon Bridges in “Better Man.” The gospel and soul singer from Fort Worth, Texas, brings an authentic old-time sound to modern day music which creates perfect wedding vibes.
The Rocket Summer
Former long-distance lovers will identify with The Rocket Summer’s song “200,000” which tells the artist’s story of working extra hours to buy an engagement ring and putting 200,000 miles on his car to be with his girl.
The grizzly, tender voice of Josh Garrels in “For You” is a romantic song for any wedding with lyrics, “You can call my name / And I will find you / Heaven and Hell can’t separate our love / I’m doing it all for you my love.”
