The best (and easiest) way to immediately get your guests in the mood for celebrating is with a playlist of wedding songs that tug at their heartstrings and instantly create lasting memories of your day.

Start the process of compiling your wedding playlist by posting a call-out for song requests on your response cards or your wedding website -- this is an easy way to make sure everyone's favourite tunes are covered off and that you'll have a range of wedding songs that will appeal to all of your guests. Next, it's time to start brainstorming which wedding songs you'll want to having playing during the most important parts of your day -- the processional and recessional, your first dance, and of course during the late-night dance party when you finally get to let loose with all of your friends and family.

To help you get started on the perfect wedding playlist we compiled a list of tried and true favourites, wedding song suggestions from other couples, and new tunes you may not have heard before that are just ideal for your big day. Take a listen to the wedding music suggestions below, then start downloading and prepare to host the party of a lifetime.

You can also check out this list of wedding songs for more great tunes you may have never heard before.
