Best Marry Me Songs

What's sweeter than the good ol' romantic marriage proposals? There are a lot of ways to do it and lots of ways to say it. No wonder there are many hit songs that are about getting married and popping the question in serious and even fun ways. These are five of the sweetest, cutest and heart-melting songs that will instantly make you say "I do".

Cause it's a beautiful night,

we're looking for something dumb to do

Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you

Is it the look in your eyes

or is it this dancing juice

Who cares baby,

I think I wanna marry you

— Bruno Mars, "Marry You"

1. "Marry You" by Bruno Mars

Artist: Bruno Mars

Released: 2010

Album: Doo-Wops & Hooligans

Songwriters: Bruno Mars; Philip Lawrence; Ari Levine

Label: Elektra; Warner

"Marry You" is one of Bruno Mars's most-loved creations. Mars is known not just for his amazing voice but also for his incredible talent in writing songs. This particular one is a fun upbeat song about asking a girl to marry him rather impulsively; talking about getting wasted, blowing cash and going straight to the little chapel on the boulevard. Sounds fun and a bit too hasty but who are we to judge, right? He might be really that in love to immediately marry her.

Train - Marry Me

Train - Marry Me

Promise me, You'll always be

Happy by my side, I promise to

Sing to you, When all the music dies

...And marry me

Today and everyday

— Train, "Marry Me"

When I first heard this song, I knew it's gonna be one of my favorites. This song by Train has such a sweet and acoustic sound filled with romantic lyrics. It is about thinking of asking the girl in the coffee shop (probably the waitress according to the music video) to marry him and promising her your forever. It's like seeing someone for the first time and already knowing that she's going to be the one for you . . . if only you have the guts to tell her.

BRKN RBTZ, "Marry Your Daughter"

BRKN RBTZ, "Marry Your Daughter"

I'm gonna marry your princess

And make her my queen

She'll be the most beautiful bride

that I've ever seen

I can't wait to smile

When she walks down the isle

On the arm of her father

On the day that I marry your daughter

— BRKN RBTZ, "Marry Your Daughter"

3. "Marry Your Daughter" by BRKN RBTZ


Released: 2012

Songwriters: Brian McKnight, Cole Mcknight & Brandon Barnes

As sons of the great singer Brian McKnight, these duo definitely live up to the expectations. This song may be the best of all marriage proposal songs ever made. It is about a guy talking to his lover's father and asking for her hand in marriage. It is super cute and so relatable especially if you're a dude trying to win the dad's heart. The song may sound super cheesy but there's no better way of expressing your love than giving respect to your love one's family. Every girl would swoon knowing that her lover would bravely stand in front of her dad and tell him how much he loves her. What a beautiful thing it is.

Magic!, "Rude"

Magic!, "Rude"

Can I have your daughter

for the rest of my life?

Say yes, say yes

'cause I need to know

You say I'll never get

your blessin' till the day I die

"Tough luck, my friend,

but no still means no!"

— Magic!, "Rude"

4. "Rude" by Magic!

Artist: MAGIC!

Released: 2014

Album: Don't Kill the Magic

Songwriters: Alex Tanas, Ben Spivak, Mark Pellizzer, Adam Messinger & Nasri Atweh

Label: Sony Music & RCA Records

This is an upbeat, reggae-sounding track by the band Magic!, about a guy who was rejected by the father of his fiance. It's one of the harsh realities of getting married. Sometimes, the parents of your beloved don't like you for their child and that would really suck. This song expresses his feelings about how he feels he is rude by saying no, but even so, he's still going to marry her anyway. Because you got to follow your heart, right?

Jason Derulo, "Marry Me"

Jason Derulo, "Marry Me"

A hundred and five is the number

that comes to my head

When I think of all the years

I want to be with you

Wake up every morning

with you in my bed

That's precisely what I plan to do

— Jason Derulo, "Marry Me"

5. "Marry Me" by Jason Derulo

Artist: Jason Derulo

Released: 2013

Album: Tattoos

Songwriters: Jason Derulo, Marlin "Hookman" Bonds, Jonas Jeberg & Andy Marvel

This is one sweet song by Jason Derulo. It is about a guy proposing his love to a girl and telling her that sometime soon, he would ask her to marry him and give her the best in the world. It was released 2013 when he and Jordan Sparks were still dating. She is actually the main muse of the music video of this song which made everyone ask when they would finally tie the knot. Unfortunately, they eventually broke up and Jordin is now married to another man. Well, maybe they weren't really fated for each other. But still, this song would still get you right into the feels.
