Wedding Ceremony & Reception Song Lists

Create Your Playlist!

Last Updated: September 19, 2022 | Written by Matthew Campbell

Congrats — you’re getting married! You chose the songs to walk down the aisle and for your first dance. But what about the rest of the wedding song list?

Selecting wedding songs can be a daunting task. To help in your song search, we created lists of popular wedding music; these lists are categorized by event type and genre in case you need inspiration.

It can be a challenge to narrow down your song selection until you nail down the parts of the wedding you’ll include. Wedding ceremony songs start with the processional to the altar and finish with recessional songs leaving the altar. Will you include a unity candle? A special song during communion?

Wedding reception songs include all activities from the bride and groom’s grand entrance to the last dance song. But will you have the money dance or honor a loved one who passed? We’re here to help.
