There’s no wedding party, without some awesome wedding songs! But do not just think about the music of the party, your wedding is composed of different stages, which need the ideal music.
One of the funniest parts of wedding planning is definitely choosing your wedding songs, but it also can be very overwhelming.
You should consider many things such as what kind of mood do you want to set, what music do your friends and relatives like and will enjoy during the party. And also, do you and your partner have any special songs that you must include in your ceremony and reception?
To help you with this, we have selected the most important moments in a wedding and have a songs list proposal for each of them, so you can have an idea and make your stress go away (at least with this one)

At a wedding, the procession is that moment before the ceremony begins when the flower girls and boys, the bridesmaids with the groomsmens, the ring bearer and the couple’s closest family members walk down the aisle. The bridesmaids stay on the left, and the groomsmen with the groom stay on the right, standing at the altar. The bride is the last one to arrive, usually by the hand of a beloved relative (father, mother, grandfather, uncle, etc.) Your choice of music for this special part of the ceremony can range from a traditional hymn to your favorite pop song, everything will depend on the type of wedding you choose.

It is common tha the first dance as housband and bride occur at the very begining of the reception, just after the bride and the groom are introduced as espouses, or may you preferred to do it after the dinner. You can choose for a traditional song or something more modern to heat it up! But most important is to find a song that represents the love between the couple, a special song for both of you..
- “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
- “All of Me” by John Legend

- “The First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes
