100 Best Rock Love Songs for Wedding Videos

I have been an online writer for over five years. I am passionate about books, philosophy, music, and the music industry.


In a wedding video, every aspect needs to be perfect. While professional videographers often choose the right visuals from the wedding, not many do a great job of selecting the right songs for the wedding videos. Every couple wants their wedding to be like a perfect fairytale. Grooms may not be sticklers for perfection, but brides sure are. A bride wants every moment at her wedding to be aesthetically pleasing. The photographer and videographer need to be on their toes at weddings. Every little detail needs to be captured poetically. The videographer has to make sure every detail of the wedding, from the nuptials to the reception, is captured perfectly. The process of editing after the entire wedding is captured on video is very important.

When videographers work on a wedding video, they often get it right with visuals and the sequence of the wedding. However, couples get miffed about the selection of songs used on their wedding video. Only a thoughtful selection of wedding video songs evoke special memories. Videographers often do a marvelous job of bringing a wedding to life with visuals, however, the majority of videographers fare poorly when it comes to selecting songs on the wedding videos. Some couples provide the videographer with a list of songs to have on the wedding video; however, the majority of couples leave it to the videographer to select songs for their wedding video. Not every videographer puts a lot of thought into what song is appropriate in accordance with the visuals. Often, videographers take the easy way out and cram in instrumentals of songs in wedding videos.


How to Select Songs for Wedding Videos

Often we come across panpipe, guitar, piano or saxophone instrumentals that play in the background of wedding videos. While it’s okay to have instrumentals of songs playing in your wedding video, it’s certainly not impactful for viewers. You need to have soothing rock songs play in the background of your wedding video to make viewing fun, exciting and impactful. When you have soothing love songs on wedding videos, the lyrics complement visuals of the wedding beautifully. Ballads are a great choice because the lyrics and music in romantic love songs enhance viewing pleasure with lyrics and music. When couples watch their wedding video every visual comes alive with soothing rock songs in the background. Rock love songs playing softly in the background of the wedding video give visual experience a boost.


There are different types of songs you can select for wedding videos. You can opt for rock ballads, acoustic rock songs, indie rock love songs, acoustic rock ballads, power ballads, slow rock songs, soft rock songs or songs from different genres on wedding videos. Picking appropriate songs in accordance with the sequence of the wedding video is important. It’s a wise idea to meet your videographer and discuss your song requirements on your wedding video. Once the videographer is briefed clearly about the songs you want on your wedding video, it makes his/her task of compiling songs in the sequence of events easy. While there are no rules when it comes to selecting songs for wedding videos, it is important you pick mellow songs with lyrical prowess to make visuals of your wedding memorable, thoughtful and impactful.

The lines below feature a list of soothing rock songs to choose from for your wedding video.
