What Spanish songs should I play at my wedding?
Typically, the Latin and Spanish song chart features songs on Amazon’s Top 50 best-selling Latin category. It commonly showcases the latest songs by popular new artists — not surprising. However, the list will regularly feature mainstay artists such as Selena, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Marc Anthony, and Celia Cruz.
The Latin chart repeatedly ranks party bangers that have made their way into Pop culture such as “Despacito,” “Mi Gente,” “Macarena,” “Suavemente,” and “Danza Kuduro.” So, our list has a wide variety of sounds, moods, and use cases. Basically, when you remove the ceremony, a wedding is a party. So, get your groove on, pick your partner, and get to dancing!

Is Latin music its own genre?
Latin music is a wide tent. It isn’t its own genre unless some of the curators are lazy. We tend to think of Latin music as only songs in Spanish. But they could also be in languages from the Caribbean or Portuguese. Brazil 66 anyone?
Latin music is a genre of music labeled by the music industry that has a representative sound and style of the native music from Central and South America as well as the Caribbean.
Latin songs consist of many sub-genres including, but not limited to:
- Tierra Caliente
A reader recommended Spanish songs for weddings
There are two songs in Spanish that we encourage you to listen to first. “La Suite del Reloj” is a beautiful instrumental. “White Lily” is performed by Spanish artists and mixed in Mexico but the lyrics are in English.
- La Suite del reloj: IV. El reloj mágico – José Torres Trío
- White Lily – Rocío Guzmán, José Torres Vicente
With that in mind, Luis Miguel, El Sol de México, sings “El Reloj” which is perfect for a first dance. The lyrics are amazing. “She’s the star that lights my being.” Wow.
“Reloj detén tu camino
Porque mi vida se apaga
Ella es la estrella
Que alumbra mi ser
Yo sin su amor no soy nada”
