Top 10 song choices for weddings


If you get stuck and want some ideas for songs which may be played at your wedding, here’s our top 10 list of songs we find ourselves being asked to play quite often as a live acoustic duo. Hopefully this helps give you some insights to create your set lists with live musicians.


  1. Signed Sealed Delivered – An upbeat lifting song often used with association to the formal recognition the married status, used as the ceremony recessional.

  2. All of Me by John Legend - a heartfelt ballad that remains a favourite for first dances and ceremonies due to its soulful lyrics and romantic melody.

  3. Perfect by Ed Sheeran – ideal for many parts of a wedding due like the ceremony processional to its lyrics and gentle melody. We play this in a laid back rock’n’roll acoustic style. 

  4. A Thousand Years by Christina Perri – great for its intimate mood, enchanting melody and lyrics about enduring love, often chosen for ceremonies and first dances.

  5. Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley - timeless classic which offer a magical ambience, making it a popular choice for ceremonies.

  6. I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston – We actually play this in two different ways, adapting to suit the situation, in its original energetic format that gets guests dancing, adding joy to the reception, or completely slowed down in a gentler style for ceremonies and reception.

  7. Marry You by Bruno Mars – With lyrics directly connected to weddings, this joyful song is ideal for creating a lively atmosphere during the ceremony or reception.

  8. Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader – A merry anthem perfect for getting guests to dance and celebrate in the evening.

  9. Still the One by Shania Twain – An easy going song celebrating the strength of relationships, popular for receptions.

  10. Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield – Ideal for reception or evening music, another lively song, and this one is in-fact one of our signature songs to perform, a great story about reaching this milestone and the excitement of the next chapter.


These songs cover a range of moods and settings, from heartfelt ballads for intimate moments to upbeat tracks for lively celebrations. Feel free to adjust your music selections based on your personal preferences and the specific vibe you want for your wedding.
