There is an endless amount of romantic and love songs to choose from when it comes to your wedding – practically every song is geared around the subject of love and romance. Soppy and sensitive to powerful love songs, there’s something for everyone and every wedding. So we’ve rounded up our top 10 love songs through the decades that will stir passion in even the least romantic among us.
(Everything I do) I Do It For You –Bryan Adams
No love songs compilation would be complete without this ‘90s power ballad. It’s got passion, sincerity and, being the soundtrack for the film Robin Hood, it could even provoke some romantic role play! Always a hit at weddings and proms, this classic can’t be missed from your wedding reception, so blast it out of your speakers and prepare to belt out the lyrics.
I Will Always Love You –Whitney Houston
Predictable, you may say, but nothing says love better than this Houston hit. The classic track is a feature of many a wedding, not forgetting its role in the blockbuster The Bodyguard. It sums marriage up in five words (or at least it should) and the message resonates after a listen. A karaoke favourite among the ladies, this will have you reaching for your hairbrush.
Make You Feel My Love –Adele
For a modern twist on a classic hit, Adele manages to evoke tender feelings and warmth with her interpretation of the Bob Dylan original. Not necessarily a ‘get up and dance’ track, but it’s perfect for the first dance of the bride and groom. Heartfelt and soulful, Adele will chill out your guests and give you and your partner a moment of peace to gaze into each other’s eyes! Ahh.
Just the Way You Are –Bruno Mars
A true ‘heart on your sleeve’ song, declaring love and appreciation for the ladies in the world. A great opportunity to have your man assert his admiration for you in front of your friends and family! You’ll feel like the only girl in the world and will have a definite boost in confidence after hearing this top ten hit.
Better When We’re Together –Jack Johnson
The ultimate in laid back love songs is Jack Johnson’s Better When We’re Together. You could be miles away on a deserted beach when you listen to this chilled classic. Perhaps harder to dance to for a first dance, but a lovable track all the same that will have you humming along. Instead, this Johnson classic could murmur in the background of your wedding breakfast or when welcoming guests.
Come Away With Me –Norah Jones
Soothing and peaceful, this is definitely a ‘his and hers’ moment in which the happy couple can shut out the rest of their guests, providing a dreamy moment just for the newlyweds. With candlelight and watching guests this will recreate a film-like atmosphere as everyone devours the love in the room!
All You Need Is Love –The Beatles
A classic wedding moment in the hit film Love Actually, this iconic track will have you singing along and loving every lyric. There’s even a chance for the groom to practice his air-guitar! This Beatles classic epitomises all there is to say about love and life and would be perfect performed by brass players and cellists at your wedding to really recreate that memorable melody. And who doesn’t love the Beatles?
Baby Can I Hold You –Tracy Chapman
Ideal for your first slow dance, Tracy Chapman’s track is gentle and heartfelt. A sure fire tearjerker, emotions will be running high once this romantic hit is played. Choose the Boyzone version for a pop fix and to satisfy the boy band fans among your guests.
I’m in the Mood For Love –Lord Tanamo
Inject some reggae cheer into your wedding with the ultimate Jamaican inspired love songs. A fun and upbeat tune, you’ll be left with a spring in your step and a smile on your face after listening to this light hearted tune. With its summery feel this one would be perfect for a wedding in the warmer months, especially if you’re getting wed in Jamaica!
My First My Last My Everything –Barry White
A wedding day wouldn’t be complete without the soulful, soothing tones of Barry White to set the romantic scene. A cliché, maybe, but your guests will love you for the comfort Barry White’s voice brings. The king of love needs to be present on your big day, so turn it up and sing along. It would be a crime not to.
