Going to the Chapel? Here's a Playlist for the Happy Couple

If you've found the one who makes your heart skip a beat, congratulations! Whether you're

  • tying the knot
  • getting hitched
  • headed to the altar or to city hall
  • taking the plunge or even
  • jumping the broom

who you marry is the most important decision you will make. But I suspect you already know that.

Marriage represents a sacred vow. It is the uniting of two families, a lifelong bond like no other. It is both a legal contract and a financial partnership. And if you are fortunate, it is an enduring love affair with your best friend.

So what are you waiting for? Let's celebrate the magic of your wedding day with music. Here's a playlist just for the happy couple!

Reader Poll: Weigh In

Marry Me: Love At First Sight

1. "Marry Me" by Train

Love at first sight has a powerful grip on the man is this soulful 2009 ballad. As he watches a waitress in a cafe, he imagines their shared future — a lifetime of happiness — and tries to summon the nerve to say hello.

Marrying for love may be a bit risky, but it is so honest that God can't help but smile on it.

— Josh Billings, Canadian comedian

2. "Marry You" by Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars (2010) knows how to make a lady's heart melt. He suggests to his gal pal that they drink some shots of tequila and head on over to the chapel on the boulevard:

It's a beautiful night ,
We're looking for something dumb to do
Hey baby
I think I want to marry you.

3. "White Dress" by Ben Rector

In this 2010 song, Ben Rector is in awe over his feelings toward his beloved. He gushes repeatedly that he never knew he could love someone the way that he loves her. What a perfect song for the bride and groom!

4. "Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart was nominated for a Grammy in 1993 for this Van Morrison remake. In this moving ballad, a lover professes his devotion:

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness
ease my troubles that's what you do.

5. "All I Want Is You" by U2

In this 1989 favorite, U2 celebrates the simplicity of love. Instead of riches, formalities, and high expectations, there is a simple wish: all I want is you.

Speak Now ... or Forever Hold Your Peace

6. "Wedding Bells" by Coldplay

This is an anguished song by Coldplay, expressed from the perspective of the bride-to-be's former lover.

Read More From Spinditty

The bride's wedding day is here, and the engagement has been a "bitter pill" for the ex-boyfriend to swallow. He has spent days of not sleeping and has tried to numb his sadness with "poisons" as the wedding day has drawn closer.

Now he watches his true love slip away for good. Have you ever felt this way as an old lover got married? Have you ever known someone else who has?

Unable or unwilling to change what's happening, he simply watches the wedding from afar. The event marches forward. He is left with only regrets: "I've always loved you and I always will."

7. "From This Moment On" by Shania Twain and Bryan White

Country music star Shania Twain was at the peak of her popularity in 1997 when she released this hopeful song, co-written with her then-husband, legendary producer and songwriter R.J. "Mutt" Lange. The song promises enduring love:

From this moment, as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing, I wouldn't give
From this moment on.

Unfortunately for Shania, her 14-year marriage to Mutt ended when her talented but considerably less attractive husband had an affair with Marie-Anne Thiebaud, Shania's best friend. Shania divorced him and married Thiebaud's ex-husband.

8. "When I Said I Do" by Clint Black and Lisa Hartman-Black

In this 1999 country song, husband/wife duo Clint Black and Lisa Hartman-Black pledge to be faithful, true and devoted to one another no matter what.

9. "Wedding Song" by Tracy Chapman

Tracy Chapman is a one-of-a kind folk artist who creates a soothing tribute (2000) to what marriage is all about:

To you I give my pledge
I honor all that's good
In this life we're living
To think not only of myself
But of the greater union.

Dreams of Being Someone's Other Half

10. "I Do" by Colbie Cailat

In this upbeat 2011 folk pop song, Colbie Cailat is giddy with love, and she's ready to seal the deal with an "I do." Whereas she admits that before it's been all about "me, myself and I," now she dreams of being someone's other half and saying those wedding vows. Sounds like somebody has it bad!

11. "Today Was A Fairy Tale" by Taylor Swift

In this 2010 country pop hit, Taylor Swift gushes to her sweetheart that there is magic in the air. She describes their day together as a fairy tale, saying that she fell in love with her prince when she saw him standing there.

With Taylor's active love life, one must wonder whether the song was based on Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Harry Styles, Conor Kennedy, or someone else?

12. "Let’s Get Married" by Jagged Edge

This 2006 song is from perspective of a guy who is laying his heart out on the table.

He looks at all the years he and his special lady have invested in their relationship and now he's talking about meeting her in her white dress at the altar. He also suggests having babies because they're not getting any younger. Awww. Some guys are such romantics.

13. "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri

In this song, the narrator looks at her groom standing at the altar and reassures him that she has loved him for 1,000 years and will love him for 1,000 more. The 2011 song later became a tribute to Bella and Edward's love in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. It appears on the official soundtrack.

14. "You're The First, My Last, My Everything" by Barry White

In one of his greatest hits (1974), Barry White, The King of Seduction, confesses to his lady friend that she is "all I'm living for." Although he's so elated he feels he must be dreaming, Barry knows his lucky lady friend is a happy reality. Turn down the lights!

15. "God Gave Me You" by Blake Shelton

You don't have to wonder whether country music star Blake Shelton is singing about his now ex-wife Miranda Lambert in this 2011 song. (Watch the video!) He calls his sweetheart an angel — a martyr — and says that God has delivered her to him, a flattered fool.

Although he calls himself a "walking heartache" who has made of mess of himself, she has been divinely delivered to help him through. What a way to say "I love you!"

"Grow old with me!  The best is yet to be." - Robert Browning, English writer

16. "White Wedding" by Billy Idol

Billy Idol's 1982 hit has been rumored to have different meanings. VH1 Storytellers reported that the song was written about Idol's own sister, who was pregnant and engaged to marry the child's father.

Others say the song is about a man whose love interest marries someone else while he is away. (Note that "little sister" is a slang term for girlfriend.) Even though the song seems to be anti-marriage, it is a popular song at weddings.

17. "Your Everything" by Keith Urban

When country singer Keith Urban (2000) says he wants to be his lover's everything, he means it! Where else have you heard desires like this?

I wanna be the wind that fills your sails
And be the hand that lifts your veil
And be the moon that moves your tide
The sun coming up in your eyes

Be the wheels that never rust
And be the spark that lights you up ... .

Simple or Fancy, It's the Love That Counts

White roses and soft colors are an enduring favorite for wedding bouquets.

18. "When I Say I Do" by Matthew West

In this 2010 contemporary Christian song, the narrator looks at his bride and feels blessed by God. As their vows unfold, he makes a promise both to himself and to his bride that their promises are so much more than words and that he will love her through anything, just as he does in this moment.

19. "To the Aisle" by The Five Satins

This doo-wop song from 1957 tells the girl-meets-boy story as an inevitable series of steps down the aisle to the altar. And it all starts with a simple conversation.

20. "Stay With You" by John Legend

In this 2004 song, John Legend promises that he will be a lifetime lover — strong and reliable through ups and downs, through heartaches and pain, and present when no one else remains. He pledges his commitment and says it'll all be okay.

Ahhh, the Wedding Shoes!

"Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination." - Roy Goodman, English conductor

21. "With This Ring" by The Platters

This upbeat, Motown-influenced 1967 song celebrates that a wanderer has promised to settle down with the exchange of wedding vows and gold rings. He has reformed his ways and gives his heart only to her.

22. "I Won’t Give Up" by Jason Mraz

In this 2012 ballad, Jason Mraz sees an old soul when he gazes into his lover's eyes. He pledges never to give up on their love but instead he promises to stick it out, no matter what challenges may lie ahead.

23. "Marry Your Daughter" by Brian McKnight

Brian McKnight (2012) sings the story of a man who earnestly asks his girlfriend's father for her hand in marriage. The groom-to-be promises to make the father's "princess" — his eldest daughter — his "queen" for the rest of his life.

If this song doesn't bring a tear to your eye or a lump to your throat, you've either sworn off marriage or have no feelings. It's that touching.

Every Girl Should Have Someone Who Loves Her This Much

24. "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley

The narrator in this 1987 song alerts his beloved that he's ready for a forever commitment and can be trusted with her heart:

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you ... .

25. "Simply the Best" by Tina Turner

The Queen of Rock 'n Roll released this number in 1991. The song describes being completely mesmerized by the one you love. Her heart is on fire, she hangs on his every word, and she seeks solace in his arms. He's everything to her:

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met ... .

26. "Beautiful In My Eyes" by Joshua Kadison

A perfect tribute to a bride and groom, this 1993 song by Joshua Kadison compares one's beloved to a work of art that will grow ever more beautiful as the years pass.

27. "Get Me To the Church On Cumberland Road" by Shenandoah

In this 1989 country pop song, Shenandoah describes a misbehaving groom who's been out partying all night and is late to his own wedding. One of his friends has passed out in the back of the car while another has his head hanging over the side of the car door.

They're speeding down the highway trying to make it to the church, and the groom suspects his poor bride is already at the altar crying. It's all in fun and games, however. (Really!?!) He loves his sweetheart and is eager to tie the knot. He will never live this down.

Ah, Love! Let's Jump to It!

"Love puts the fun in together, the sad in apart, and the joy in a heart."  - Author Unknown

28. "Make You Feel My Love" by Adele

Adele reassures her lover that when the world is against him, she will offer him safe harbor. She will endure anything to ensure that he feels loved. Although Adele released the song in 2008, it was written and released by Bob Dylan in 1997, then released by others as well, including Billy Joel (1997) and Garth Brooks (1998).

29. "Will You Marry Me?" by Paula Abdul

Back before Paula Abdul was a judge on American Idol, she was a Grammy award-winning singer and choreographer. This 1992 hit features her as a love-struck lady who is proposing marriage to her man. She encourages him to think of marriage not as a ball and chain but as wings!

Why Are Proposals Delivered "On Bended Knee?"

Kneeling is a symbolic gesture that shows one's respect and readiness to commit one's life to his sweetheart. (And it usually is the man who is on bended knee. Only about 5% of currently married couples say that the woman proposed marriage.1)

The kneeling posture is related to bowing and is traditionally used

  • for prayer
  • to accept honors and commendations (e.g., knighthood) and
  • to request favors.2

In addition to being a sign of one's honor and earnest intentions, kneeling physically places the engagement ring in a prominent position for the woman to admire and (hopefully) accept.

30. "Going to the Chapel (Chapel of Love)" by The Dixie Cups

Spring is here and The Dixie Cups (1964) are bubbly because it's time for nuptials!

You'd have to be raised under a rock to have never heard the following refrain, synonymous with weddings:

Go-in’ to the chap-el
And we're gon-na get m-a-r-r-i-e-d.

However, in classic 1960s fashion, they also proclaim that doing so will ensure that they will never be lonely. Hmmm. (Note to self: first work on you.)

Ouch! Don't Ask A Question You Don't Want the Answer To

31. "Rude" by Magic!

When a man asks a woman's father for permission to marry her, he should be prepared for any answer. Canadian raggae band Magic! (2013) tells the tale of a lovesick young man who tried to do the right thing but was turned down cold by his girlfriend's disapproving father.

Crestfallen, the young man pleads:

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?

Then he tells his future father-in-law that he'll marry the girl anyway.

If you want a laugh, listen to the "Rude" video above first.

Then listen to the Dad's Side of the Story as well as The Daughter's Side of the Story. Very entertaining! Hopefully, such drama isn't your situation!

32. "I Can Love You Like That" by John Michael Montgomery

John Michael Montgomery has huge promises to live up to. In his 1995 song, he references Cinderella and Prince Charming as well as Romeo and Juliet, then tells her "I can love you like that."

33. "It's Your Love" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

Married country music stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill team up in this 1997 chart-topper. They tell each other that they cannot get enough of one another. Even better than that, they are happy, free, and stronger by taking each others' hands in marriage.

34. "I Do Cherish You" by 98 Degrees

In 1999, 98 Degrees released this song which expresses a young lover's bliss. He claims that

All I am, all I'll be
Everything in this world
All that I'll ever need
Is in your eyes
Shining at me.

35. "I Wanna Be With You" by Aloe Blacc

If you're madly in love, then you appreciate what this 2013 Aloe Blacc song is about. Comparing his lady to an angel, he wants to be with her until

  • he's old and grey
  • pigs fly
  • politicians stop lying
  • hell freezes over and ...

Well, you get the picture.

36. "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)" by Natalie Cole

Natalie Cole won a Grammy Award for this song in 1975. More recently, it has been used as background music for television and radio advertisements for dating website eHarmony.

The song paints the love affair as satisfying every expectation. (Cue the flashing neon lights, glitter, and magic ponies.)

At points, she sings so frenetically about being in love that her giddiness makes you want to recommend cutting the pill in half. But isn't that what the early stages of love feel like — sheer exhilaration?

37. "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion

In this 1996 song, Celine Dion is thankful for the strength, support and love that her better half has shown her. She graciously expresses that "I'm everything I am because you loved me."

38. "I Swear" by All-4-One

R&B group All-4-One won a Grammy in 1995 for this song. It features a man pledging to his beloved that he knows his part when it comes to love. He promises to do right by her, to build her dreams, and forever show her how much he loves her.

39. "Truly, Madly, Deeply" by Savage Garden

In this 1997 song, Savage Garden promises to be everything their lover desires.

I'll be your dream I'll be your wish
I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love
Be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath
Truly, madly, deeply do.

40. "When A Man Loves A Woman" by Michael Bolton

Percy Sledge (1966) and Michael Bolton (1991) both did justice to this moving R&B classic. The song proclaims boldy and simply that when a man truly loves a woman, nothing — not money, friends or even dignity — can prevent him from trying to make her happy.

This is a very useful list for those planning a wedding or an anniversary party. I especially like Rod Stewart´s "Have I Told You Lately". I guess I need to listen to Coldplay´s words to "Weddding Bells" again--I didn´t realize the story was told from the ex-lover´s viewpoint.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 24, 2014:

Dianna Mendez on September 21, 2014:

I was in the moment reading the list of romantic songs and playing the tunes in my head. I love Rod Stewart's song version and Grow Old With Me by Mary Carpenter. I believe in the institution of marriage today and pray future couples will see the value and strength of the commitment.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 16, 2014:

Vellur - Glad you enjoyed these. There are some real gems. Have a great week!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 16, 2014:

Cherylann - First dances or fun songtracks leading up the wedding (for exercise, parties, listening to in the car or as mood music). It is such a special time that a couple will look back upon with fond memories. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Nithya Venkat from Dubai on September 16, 2014:

Great wedding day playlist and what an amazing collection of songs, some of which I have heard and some I have not. Great hub, thank you for sharing.

Cherylann Mollan from India on September 15, 2014:

Ah, this hub! Made me all mushy and dreamy :) You've picked the best of the very best. From this moment, Truly madly deeply and Have I told you lately are my all-time favourites. I think the idea of having the first dance is so wonderful because you get to play such songs and what's even better is that you get a chance to give your partner a special message that you're not eloquent or poetic enough to come up with yourself.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 15, 2014:

AudreyHowitt - Glad you like it! I'm sure it will come in handy for brides and grooms. Thanks for stopping by!

Sha - Aww, sorry to hear that. Glad you enjoyed it! Enjoy the music and dance a little, too.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on September 15, 2014:

This is a fun and beautiful post, Flourish. I'll have to go back and watch the last few videos. Neither of my proposals were as awesome as any of these. Perhaps that was a sign.

agusfanani - Happy to help! Have a great week!

agusfanani from Indonesia on September 14, 2014:

I think, this is a wonderful list of songs for Bride and Groom. My friend is a wedding singer, he asked my ideas about wedding songs but I couldn't answer it. With the list you've shared here, now I can answer his question.

Frank - Thank you for stopping by, as always. Have a great week.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on September 14, 2014:

this was fun, entertaining and the polls were funny.. yeah I enjoyed it very much

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Sunshine625 - Although it wasn't in any particular order, Train's song had to take the first spot. Best song ever! Thanks for taking a look here and for leaving feedback. Have a great week!

Thank you, wonderful Faith Reaper! It's not outdated for me either. Mr. Flourish and I have been married almost 20 years. Congratulations on 36!

Linda Bilyeu from Orlando, FL on September 14, 2014:

AWESOME list! I was hoping Train's Marry Me made the cut, and Yay for being #1. Blake (15) and Keith (17) were fabulous additions to the list. All the sings were great! Savage Garden has a special place in my iPhone playlist :)

Faith Reaper from southern USA on September 14, 2014:

Hi there, DJ Flourish! What a wonderful playlist here. Wow, you have covered all the bases I must say. I know pretty much all of these great tunes here. The polls are interesting too. Marriage is not an outdated institution for me, as I have been married for 36 years ... well on the 16th, but I am sure we are outdated LOL I suspect I will be married until we part via death.

Voted up and all the way across, tweeting and pinning

Loved listening to all of the music here and you have brought back some good memories with your wonderful playlist.

MsDora - Thanks so much for the comment. Glad you enjoyed it!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on September 14, 2014:

Flourish, I feel like watching a romance movie (that's the best I can do) after reading through the sentiments of the songs you selected. Great list and an enjoyable article. Thank you.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Deal - glad you enjoyed it.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

first day - I appreciate the compliments. It took me nearly a week of research, finding photos and quotes, etc. I have other things going on in parallel, of corse. Writing it was great fun, one of my favorite types of hubs. Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Heidi - Thanks so much! it took a lot of research but was fun!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Bill - Thanks for stopping by. I had so many to choose from I had to stop at 40. I'm thinking of doing a follow up hub with more selections. I particularly like You Are So Beautiful, too.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Jo - Thanks for reading and go get some zzzz's. Have a good week!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Susan - Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. The playlists are fun to compile.

Jo Alexis-Hagues from Lincolnshire, U.K on September 14, 2014:

Flourish, another excellent hub, I'll have to come back for a closer look and to watch the videos, just heading off on the night shift.

Nick Deal from Earth on September 14, 2014:

This is a terrific idea for a hub and thought provoking. Great list

Heidi Thorne from Chicago Area on September 14, 2014:

Gotta admit I didn't know a lot of these! Voted up and sharing on Twitter!

Jim from Kansas on September 14, 2014:

This is a great resource for couple getting hitched. Some good ones here.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on September 14, 2014:

We had two songs, and neither are on this list....Color My World...and...You Are So Beautiful.....having said that, I loved this list.

Have a great Sunday my friend.

Rebecca Be from Lincoln, Nebraska on September 14, 2014:

I am in awe at how well you put your hubs together. How much time do you spend on this? I gave you pluses all the way across. If I were getting married this hub is very fun and helpful. As a matter of fact it is fun anyway. LOL

Susan Hambidge from Kent, England on September 14, 2014:

Wow - a thorough compilation. There are some I don't know but lots of them I do and think are perfect for that first dance.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

Bill - Yes, lots of research! I have a cousin who is marrying soon. Thanks for reading and have a great week.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on September 14, 2014:

John - Thanks so much for your endorsement. Glad you enjoyed this!

Bill De Giulio from Massachusetts on September 14, 2014:

Hi Flourish. What a great list. A lot of work and research must have gone into compiling the list. There are some classics here. You have created a one-stop list for those preparing to tie the knot. Great job, have a great day.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on September 14, 2014:

What a wonerful hub Flourish. I don't think you left any songs out. I didn't know a lot of them so I am going to spend a few hours listening. The ones I am familiar with I love like "truly, Madly, Deeply" by Aussies Savage Garden. Voted way up.
