100 Best Memorial Songs & Memories
A bride’s wedding is one of the most important days in her life that she plans from the time of being a young girl. However, not every wedding is a fairytale wedding with a father walking a bride down the aisle or a mother helping plan all the wedding details. Sometimes life is not what is expect and special people close to us pass away, whether it be a parent, sibling, special relative or friend. Memorial songs celebrate the life and memories of loved ones lost.
At wedding ceremonies or wedding receptions, special songs can be played in remembrance of a special person who has passed away and not able to attend the wedding. These are the Best Memorial Songs. If you would like to play a song in remembrance at a wedding ceremony or wedding reception, we created a list of popular memorial songs. When remembering a loved one, who has passed during a wedding, we would recommend having a special object at the wedding ceremony and wedding reception in their honor. An example would be to have a lit candle in remembrance.

When selecting memorial songs, we would suggest a song that was special between the bridal couple and the person no longer living. It doesn’t matter the song or theme as it pertains to your relationship and memories together. If you do not have a specific song in mind we have listed our Top 100 Memorial Songs. We have listed many different types of music to cover anyone’s needs. We have rap, rock, country, jazz, r&b and much more.
If you would like to think of someone who has passed away looking down on the bride and groom and/or looking over them, we would suggest the following songs: Holes In The Floor Of Heaven by Steve Wariner and Angels Among Us by Alabama. If it were a child that passed away we would suggest Angels In Waiting by Tammy Cochrane or Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton. Eric Clapton wrote the song after he lost his son.
If you would like to remember a soldier, we suggest Arlington by Trace Atkins or Live Like We Were Dying by Tim McGraw. The song played for Princess Diana, Candle In The Wind by Elton John, would be great for a remembering a classy woman.
