100 Love Songs For Your Wedding

The best weddings have a continuous stream of love songs playing from the moment the guests arrive at the beautiful ceremony. As you walk down the aisle, your favorite romantic song of all time will be playing and the lovey-dovey tunes will continue until the DJ plays the last song of the night. 

 

You always remember the songs playing at significant moments of your life. The music playing in the background when you had your first kiss, your signature couple song, the song he proposed to, or tunes that remind you of each other. Those songs, along with your all-time most-loved melodies, are the start of your wedding day playlists. There are a lot of key songs to choose too.

If you are having wedding videography, you will also have to choose a song or two to go along with the footage. Be careful with you song selection for the video. Many love songs are actually talking about unrequited love or breakups. Download the lyrics to the songs you choose and read through to make sure they are appropriate for you video. You can do that after the wedding as it's easier to pick the right one after you've lived your best day ever. So don't stress about those songs now, just keep in mind you will need them for later.

 

Somewhere in the world, some of these songs are being played at this very moment. Many are classics or current hits that we will be listening to for all of eternity. With so many great love songs, it wasn't easy narrowing it down to 100. We hope some of these sentimental love songs will be perfect for your wedding and wish you the best for a beautiful day
