What is a Sister-Brother Song?

A sister-brother song is a special song between a bride and her brother. We recommend that you select a song that has special meaning between both you and your brother. This could be a sister-brother dance, a slideshow, or when he walks down the aisle. It all depends on what you would like to do as the wedding couple.

“It seems like every set of siblings has some sort of family dance, whether it moves they choreographed as kids or a song you love to rock out to in the kitchen when you’re all home for Thanksgiving. Make sure your tune of choice gets played during the reception, and ask your brothers to join you in the middle of the dance floor to bust a move.” Jaimie Mackey


How do I include my brother at my wedding?

Maybe your brother doesn’t want to dance. That’s okay, too. You can include your brother in your wedding party. Many wedding couples are breaking traditional gender roles such as bridesmaids and groomsmen. So your brother can definitely be the bride’s best man.

If your brother is shy, he can be an usher or officiant. Talk to your wedding coordinator and future husband. You don’t want surprises, though, the day of.

“We’ve frequently seen siblings cast as program attendants, guest book hosts, ushers and junior-status bridesmaids and groomsmen (when much younger) – but there are several meaningful ways in which siblings can contribute to your day.” Marquette Avenue Events

Is it normal for the groom’s sister to be a bridesmaid?

It’s up to you but remember that your children may be playing together in the future, reminds Aviva Samuels in a article.  Including your sister-in-law at the wedding is a decision that should be made by you as the wedding couple. If your future husband and his sister are very close, a sister-brother song could replace the mother dancing with the groom.

Remember, this is your celebration. Talk about the options with each other and your professional wedding planner.


A Sister-Brother Song Should Hold Meaning

Sister-brother songs are special when the bride has a special relationship with her brother. In addition, if a bride’s parents have passed away, it would be a special gesture to have a sister-brother dance to replace the father-daughter dance. If the bride has multiple brothers, the selected song can play as the bride starts dancing with the oldest brother. Then, the younger brothers can cut-in as the song plays.

Here is a song that was sung by a sister to her brother at his wedding:

  1. Victoria Ramirez says:

    So my mother passed away a couple months ago & my brother is getting married soon. I have the honor of representing our mother & I will be dancing with him in place of her. I am having trouble finding the perfect song for this moment.

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Victoria. Finding the perfect song without knowing you is an impossible task. That being said, I would first suggest selecting a song that has special meaning to you and your brother. Don’t worry about whether the song is fast or slow. Just make the moment what it should be – a special celebration between you. Next, you have to decide if you want a touching slow song or want to keep the mood light with a fun song. While I am not going to select a specific song, first think of your relationship with your brother and how you want to celebrate your love for each other, and if you wish to honor your Mom at the same time.

  2. rerebecca says:

    hi. my brother is turning 30 and i wanted to know what would be a beautiful song to sing for him from a sister to my brother. he n i and very close. please help. thanks

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Rebecca. First and foremost, pick a song that already means something between you. Was there a special song that highlights your past life moments? If not, check out Phil Collins – You’ll Be In My Heart.

  3. Shikha says:

    I want to sing a song for my brother. I love him so much for me he is a God gifted person. What about Kodaline ‘BROTHER’? Please help me to choose a song for him. Oh, there is a information I want to tell you that my brother is a marine engineer.

  4. Alona says:

    Hi I’m having a sweet 16 and I’m supposed to dance with my brother. I just don’t know what’s song would be great, growing up was difficult cause we would fight a lot but always still close. He was always my father figure because my dad wasn’t around and I look up to him, anyway I’m just confused on what song would be a good fit. We’re supposed to do like a waltz dance.

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Alona. First, I would suggest a song that means something to you and your brother. It does not have to be a waltz song. A song that means something to you both is more than trying to dance the perfect waltz. Check out Thank You – Bon Jovi if you must do the waltz.

  5. Chelsea says:

    Hi my sister is getting married and she wants me to sing. Since im only 14, do you have a any song suggestion that doesnt involve like too intimate lyrics or if they do can they be in third person? Thanks

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Chelsea, I would suggest finding a song that means a lot to your sister and fiance. This way it will mean that much more to everyone.

  6. Jason says:

    Hi my name is Jason. My sister is getting married in August 2018. She wants me and my brother to sing at her wedding. I want to sing something old and something new. Any idea would be great to do. (Like Florida Georgia Line future Backstreet Boys)

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Jason. Thanks for your question. What about any of the Sister Brother songs listed? DO any of them describe your relationship with your sister?

  7. Shawn says:

    Brother Sister song by Berres Hammond ? Sister getting married and she loves Berres and I love Reggae

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Shawn. Thanks for the suggestion. We know Beres Hammond but not familiar with your exact song you like. Please let us know if you are able to find a reference to the song online. Thanks!

  8. rae karellana says:

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Lucy. Since your previous song was Country, what about Whenever You Remember by Carrie Underwood.

  10. Samantha says:

    Hi was wondering if you could help me. My dad died last year and I’m getting married next year. My brother is walking me down the aisle and instead if father daughter dance my brother and I are going to dance. What sing could you recommend? Thank you.

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Samantha. Listen to Sister by Dave Matthews Band, Lean On Me – Bill Withers, and Brothers & Sisters – Coldplay.

  11. saakshi says:

    i want to sing a song for my brother as a memory reminder to him

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Saakshi. I like that you want to sing to your brother. It may be a good idea to pick a song that talks about the love between a couple instead of a song just between you and him.

  12. Kirsten says:

    Hello, I’m getting married and my older brother would like to sing at the wedding. He is walking me down the aisle and our dance will be to my wish by Rascal Flatts. Is there a song you have in mind he could sing to me and my new husband?

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Kirsten. It would help to know if you were thinking during the ceremony or at the reception. If at the ceremony, take a look at our unity candle songs as many would be great that talk about sharing your love together.

  13. Sophia says:

    Hi, I’m having my Quinceanera in three days and I need a brother and sister song to dance with my brother to. We have a tough life but we’ve always stuck through it and stayed together. He’s always been my role model, being how I never really had a dad, he was my father-figure. Please help!

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Sophia. We always suggest selecting a song that has special meaning between both of you first – whether or not you think it is appropriate as both of you will get the meaning. Otherwise, You’ve Got A Friend In Me by Randy Newman (Toy Story) is a favorite of ours.

  14. Mattie says:

    Hi I have a little sister and she wants to sing a song at my brothers wedding. I have no idea can you help me find a song for her

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Mattie. Without knowing how old your “little sister” is, a suggestion may be a love song from a popular animated movie or even the love song from Princess Bride – Mark Knopfler – Storybook Love.

  15. Veronica says:

    Hi I’m looking for a song that my brother and I can dance to at my reception. We’ve had a pretty rough relationship growing up but are now rekindling our bond. He will be our minister for the wedding and is really trying his hardest to help up out and be there for me. Not really sure what song to choose since we’ve had a rocky relationship for so long. Please help! Oh and he will be dancing with me due to our dad not being there and we don’t talk to him. I want to surprise him with the dance.

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Veronica. We would recommend James Taylor – You’ve Got A Friend or Randy Newman – You’ve Got A Friend In Me. Good Luck and congrats!

  16. pankaj says:

    I need a song were i tell my elder sister how much i care & lov for herher…??can u help me plz

  17. MommaWells says:

    Wind beneath my wings sounds nice, but what about when you get to the part about being cold in my shadow, never have sunlight on your face…. Eek!? Not a good choice, IMO

  18. Maggie says:

    I am getting married and I want my big lol brother to walk me down and give me away and I need a song any ideas?

  19. angelica says:

    Hi getting married need a sister and brother song I want an upbeat song 2015. Any suggestions?

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Angelica. I would suggest a song that is special between both of you first. Do you already have a special song that has special meaning between you that us upbeat?

  20. Kaylee says:

    My brother is getting married and I am the maid of honor, I wanted to find a song I can dance to with the groom/brother.

  21. Breanna says:

    I need a song about a older brother and younger sister bond!!!! I don’t really want an OLD song. We used to be close and I used to be able to tell him EVERYTHING…. We’ve been fighting a lot lately and I wanted to sing him this song at his 20th birthday in two day! I’m 14 and my brother is 20!!! Any ideas!!!

  22. Keli says:

    My brother passed away recently. He was my best friend, my other half, the person I love most in the world. I have been planning a brother sister dance with him for my wedding since I was a little girl. I was more excited about my brother sister dance than my father daughter dance honestly. Now I don’t know what to do. Somehow, I would like to make a tribute to him at my wedding. Any suggestions would be great.

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Keli. First, sorry for your loss. If there is any special song that you had between you and your brother would be my first recommendation. I remember a father daughter dance song as You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon because it was a special song between them as they “got it”. So, no matter what song was a special song between you would be the song I would recommend. Lastly, I would pick a song that represents the happy times, just as your wedding day. A suggestion could be The Greatest by Kenny Rogers –

  23. Kittu says:

    Hi. Im looking for a song from a 10 year old brother to his 12 year old sister who he lost. At her birthday. I know its not marriage but im wondering. Thanks for helping.

  24. Bonnie says:

    Thank you very much means a lot to me

  25. Emily says:

    Hi, My brother is 13 and half years older than me and I’m only 10. I need an upbeat brother sister song and I was wondering if Count Me In by Dove Cameron was an appropriate song to sing to my big brother at his wedding. Thank s for the help.

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Emily, Count Me In is a great love song. If you are dedicating the song to the bridal couple it would be great.

  26. Bonnie says:

    My brother is getting married and I would like to dedicate a song for him and his wife since I can’t be there. Thank you

    • Kim says:

      I’m in the same boat, that’s what I need x

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Bonnie and Kim. A good dedication song would be I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack. Another is Perfect Love by Marc Cohn. Two suggestions to get you on your way.

  27. Jessica Ruiz says:

    Looking for a sister brother song. I’m getting married in July. My brother is taking the place of my father. Need song suggestions please

    • Matthew Campbell says:

      Hi Jessica, first I would suggest a special song that meant lots to you and your Dad as a special dedication. Next, I would select a song that means lots between you and your brother. Lastly, take a look at the song list above as songs like There You’ll by Faith Hill is great too.
