Genre Wedding Songs Make It Easy to Choose
Wedding song lists categorized by genre provide music for your special day that matches the musical tastes of you and your new spouse. Many couples like to use wedding songs from a specific genre in order to create a general theme for their ceremony — and reception.
On these genre playlists, you will find selections from categories like rock, pop, soul, and even Christian music. We’ve made it easy for you to explore songs within a specific musical genre without wasting time on searches that don’t produce the results you want. Who has time for that? You have a wedding to plan.
Your Wedding. Your Genre.
There is no reason why you shouldn’t plan your wedding around the genre of music that you like best. Why stick with what tradition claims wedding music should be? That’s a snooze-fest. In every genre, there are tender love songs as well as lively dance tunes that fit right in with modern weddings. Remember, “More Than Words” by Extreme or “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner?

Genre Wedding Songs Are Unique
Are you the kind of person that doesn’t settle for the norm? Using wedding songs from a specific genre makes a statement. It reveals more than the type of music you love; it shows your personality. Your wedding is the perfect time to blend your unique personalities into one. Best of all, genre wedding songs reveal the depth of emotion you have for one another.
Let’s be honest. Some songs from specific genres are lyrically perfect for weddings but so not your style. Then again, you will likely come upon one or several songs that you feel were written especially for you both. Using songs from a genre allows you much more freedom of expression than traditional wedding music. Canon in D is so overplayed. (Did we just say that?)
The modern bride is not one that necessarily wants to hear a traditional bridal march when she enters the chapel. She wants to hear music that touches her soul and speaks on her behalf. What better way to accomplish that than with a few genre wedding songs?
Songs That Let You Do You
Your wedding should be about you as a couple. Genre wedding song lists help you to express your authentic self and create the perfect soundtrack for your nuptials. Best of all, you’ll forever link the songs that you have chosen to a memory that will never be forgotten. Whenever you hear the songs you have chosen you will be reminded of that special moment in time that was your wedding.
In our lists of wedding songs by genre, we have taken the top hits from specific musical styles and compiled them for your consideration. A glance at one or more of these lists will have you well on the way to a perfect wedding playlist.
