Okay, okay, we get it. You might be tired of hearing the same old, classic love songs at every wedding you attend. Although those songs are timeless for a reason, it doesn’t hurt to play a fresh, unexpected tune or two. Check out these popular new jams, which just happen to be perfectly wedding appropriate.
For Your Walk Down the Aisle:
“Sweet Creature” by Harry Styles
“We don’t know where we’re going but we know where we belong,” are words that Harry Styles sings early into the song. This song is guaranteed to have you feeling all the feels as you walk down the aisle toward the person of your dreams.
For When Your Enter Your Reception:
“Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake
This recent upbeat, feel-good hit will have your guests on their feet cheering for you and your new spouse as you dance into your reception as husband and wife.
For Your First Dance:
“Best Part” by Daniel Cesar and H.E.R.
This sweet, R&B acoustic number by up-and-coming Toronto crooner by Daniel Cesar incorporates many analogies that will no doubt strike a cord with most couples. We especially love these lines: “Where you go I’ll follow/No matter how far/If life is a movie/You’re the best part.”
“Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
There’s no doubt you’ve heard “Thinking Out Loud” by the British singer at recent weddings since the song was released in 2014. Ed Sheeran not-so-subtly nudged couples into using the song after inspiring them with the music video, which features him dancing with his bride. If you wish to use a fresher Ed Sheeran tune with the same wedding feel, opt for “Perfect.” A spot-on song for childhood sweethearts and anyone who fell in love in their youth, this tune evokes of a mood of swaying underneath the stars with the lyrics, “Dancing in the dark/With you between my arms/Barefoot on the grass/Listening to our favourite song.”
To Get The Party Started:
“Mi Gente” by J Balvin and Willy William
Forget “Despacito”– this up-and-comer is the hottest new Latin tune on the charts. This upbeat, fun party-starter should be the first song you play to segue into a night full of dancing into the wee hours.
