I have been an online writer for over six 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.

Every little detail needs to be captured poetically in the wedding album and wedding video.

The list below showcases an epic collection of wedding video songs. You can pick and select songs in accordance with need and requirement to enhance your wedding video playlist.

Do Wedding Videographers Get It Right With Song Selection?

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 wedding 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 evokes special memories that are cherished forever.

Videographers often do a marvelous job of bringing a wedding to life with visuals, however, the majority of wedding 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.

What Songs Are Appropriate For Wedding Videos?

The songs that play in the background of a wedding video are usually a personal choice. However, if you want to your wedding visuals to feel every bit special, you need to get it spot on with your selection of songs. Often we come across instrumental music of panpipe, guitar, piano, or saxophone that plays in the background of wedding videos. While it’s okay to have instrumentals of songs playing, it’s certainly not impactful for viewers. When you have songs with lyrics playing softly in the background, it makes the visual experience incredible.

You need to have soothing love songs or soft rock songs play in the background to make viewing fun, exciting, and memorable. When you have meaningful love songs on your wedding film, 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 considerably. Every time a couple watches their wedding video, a sense of joy and completeness comes alive with visuals encompassed with songs. A thoughtfully curated playlist of mellow songs playing in the background gives visual experience a unique aesthetic.

What Songs Should You Pick for Your Wedding Video?

There are different types of songs you can select for your wedding video. You can opt for, love songs, rock ballads, acoustic songs, indie songs, acoustic ballads, power ballads, slow rock songs, soft rock songs or songs from different genres for your wedding video. It is wise to have a mix of classic tunes with new songs. Doing so takes the element of nostalgia to a whole new level. Picking appropriate songs in accordance with the sequence of events at the wedding is important. Make sure you select a playlist of songs with lyrics that celebrate togetherness.

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.
