Top 10 Most Played Wedding Songs
Choosing music for your wedding day can be one of the most difficult tasks you face for your big day. Although you may share that special song, you will need to think about music choices for your ceremony as well as your first dance and perhaps also background music during speeches or music for the wedding reception. Music has a profound power to transform a mood into something truly magical. It is something we cannot live without; consuming music and shaping memories on a daily basis.
To give you some much needed wedding music inspiration, take a look at this year’s top 10 most played wedding songs. Maybe something strikes a chord…
1. Ed Sheeran – Perfect
I think it’s safe to say that Ed won’t be knocked off the top spot any time soon. His cool guitar riffs and relatable lyrics truly capture the emotion between the bride and groom. Perfect is set to become a wedding classic.
2. Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
In again at No. 2, Thinking Out Loud remained in the UK top 40 for an entire year and was the most popular first dance wedding song globally for the last 3 years! Again, with a beautiful lyric and music score it’s little wonder Ed is heading the charts with this masterpiece.
3. Etta James – At Last
Probably one of my personal favourites, At Last encapsulates the raw passion and emotion between two people. Despite being nearly 60 years old, this beautiful backing track and lyric is firmly a wedding song choice for me and thousands of others.
4. John Legend – All of Me
Legend by name and legend by nature, All of Me is definitely a wedding song choice that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The jazzy raw tone is the perfect song choice for any wedding.
5. Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling in Love
Admittedly, I’ve never been a big Elvis fan but even this song has me weak at the knees! A beautiful song choice for weddings for generations to come.
6. Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
Christina Perri hit the UK by storm a few years ago with this beautiful track, originally written for the soundtrack to Twilight: Breaking Dawn. Her gorgeous raw tone and emotive lyrics are sure to win over the wedding crowd!
7. Ray LaMontagne – You Are The Best Thing
Ray’s fabulous upbeat track You Are The Best Thing, is probably a perfect first dance song choice if you’re thinking about lifting the room a little and kickstarting a cool wedding disco!
8. Jason Mraz – I Won’t Give Up
A truly beautiful wedding song choice which perfectly captures the true meaning of marriage. It’s easy to see why I Won’t Give Up is a favourite among so many couples.
9. Ellie Goulding – How Long Will I Love You
Ellie Goulding has more than proven her ability to stir emotions with her gorgeous music and lyric. A golden choice for any wedding song, How Long Will I Love You will no doubt remain a firm favourite for a long time yet!
10. Ed Sheeran and Beyonce – Perfect (Duet)
From number one to number ten, Ed has a triple whammy on the list with Perfect featuring twice! Beyonce’s added twist on this classic is truly magical and, in my opinion, more soulful and delicate than the original…
