Today is THE Day. It is your wedding day! The day you have either planned the majority of your life if you are the bride. The day you get to marry your best friend and party with the rest if you are the groom. It’s best to start the day off right by playing great songs to sing in the shower.
First and foremost, how do you even get music to play in the shower? Great question I am asking. You could put a radio outside the shower and blast your tunes. You could keep the bathroom door open and blast it from the living room. However, we would suggest a radio to play IN the shower for the best sound. See below:

In the UK you can now personalize almost every part of the wedding day – the flowers, dress, vows, etc. Music is no exception – for both civil and (increasingly) religious ceremonies. No longer does a bride process in to “Here Comes the Bride” and out to the Wedding March (unless that’s still “your thing”). Now, the available music for your UK wedding ceremony is endless. Yet another big decision to make about your wedding day!
Before you reach for the iPod and click “shuffle”, take some advice from an experienced wedding musician, whether you’re enjoying live music or playing from a mp3 player or CD. I have played at hundreds of weddings, and I play two instruments – violin and piano. Not yet simultaneously, though! I invite all of my clients to pick the tracks that mean the most to them, and then I set about learning them. So I have a unique perspective on the wedding music trends.
Entrance of the Bride
When choosing music for your UK wedding ceremony this should be top of your list. The music that everyone remembers – the first thing you hear on the wedding video, and the track that will make you – and everybody else – shed a tear of joy. Hopefully.
A large proportion of my brides pick similar tunes – “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri has been the favourite over the last two years. Perhaps the Twilight generation have reached the marrying age. Here is my Top Ten:
My advice: Pick something that moves reasonably quickly, even if it is a ballad. Some ceremony aisles are just a few paces long, and nervous brides tend to scamper down the aisle. You should take your time so as to enjoy more than a few seconds of entrance music!
Departure of Newly Married Couple
The second most important UK wedding music choice you will make. In civil ceremonies in the UK the registrar will have the guests applaud you out. So make sure you choose something anthemic – something with a bit of backbone, so you and your guests can hear it above the applause.
The register signing is a three-stage process: you and your witnesses sign, the official photographer takes his or her photos, and then you are ready for the guest paparazzi shots. You should schedule three songs for this period, in order of importance – as the whole process can take up to ten minutes (often swelling a short civil marriage ceremony from 15 to 25 minutes).
Here I offer my brides no strict guidelines apart from “choose the songs you most want to listen to” – you will be seated, relaxed and smiling for most of this period with a chance to enjoy the music! It’s also the music that you will be sharing with your guests, as they will be doing the same thing.
Songs You Can’t Have at a Civil Ceremony
Under UK law, music in a marriage ceremony music by “secular” in nature – even music used to introduce or conclude the ceremony. It is up to your local authority and registrar as to how they interpret this. Any music – whether sung or played on an instrument, live or recorded, must observe this guidance.
And interpretations vary. Recently I was unable to play “Angels” by Robbie Williams and “Thank God I Found You” at three different ceremonies in Wales, though I have played them with no objections in other parts of the UK. So check with your registrar first, or go here for more information: https://celebratewithmusic.co.uk/songs-you-cant-have-at-a-civil-ceremony/

Promising faith and fidelity even after heartbreak, Not a Bad Thing is a nice wedding song for reminding yourself that the past is behind you and the future is glorious.

8. Like I Love You
Yeah, you know I can make ya happy
I could change your life
If you give me that chance
To be your man
Enjoy a blast from the past when you play Like I Love You at your wedding reception. It was the funky, drum-laden debut of a baby-faced Justin Timberlake back in 2002. It still holds up today as a fun dance track that will delight your guests as soon as they recognize the opening riff.
Running fast in my mind
Girl don’t you slow it down
If we carry on this way
This thing might leave the ground
How would you like to fly?
As you might expect from the name, Senorita is a sizzling, Spanish-inspired number that brings to mind dusty orange streets and the beautiful dark-haired women that walk them. While it might not be your typical wedding song, it’ll provide an excellent backdrop for a rumba dance with your spouse.
Aren’t you something to admire?
‘Cause your shine is something like a mirror
And I can’t help but notice
You reflect in this heart of mine
Inspired by the marriage of his grandparents, Mirrors is Justin’s tribute to love, compatibility and the meeting of similar souls. If you’ve ever felt like your spouse is the other half of your heart, this is the song to celebrate your bond.
You see these shackles
Baby I’m your slave
I’ll let you whip me if I misbehave
It’s just that no one makes me feel this way
Sexy, sultry and just the right amount of risque, SexyBack catapulted into the public consciousness more than a decade ago, but it’s still a popular dance track to this day. Not only is the beat a timeless one, but it’ll get absolutely everyone on their feet. Who doesn’t remember SexyBack?

The Two Step is a classic dance that can be paired with a variety of music. It’s a great way to kick off your wedding reception. If you’re having trouble finding the right music, here are just a few ideas for two-step wedding songs.
When considering the Two Step, you can dance to the nightclub two step which typically ranging from 64-88 BPM. However, the country western two step ranges from 180-210 BPM. The country western two step is more for party time and the nightclub two step is perfect for a first dance song.
Two-Step Wedding Songs
Jason Aldean – Tonight Looks Good On You
Somethin’ ’bout the way you’re smiling
Makin’ them stars fall right on cue
I just gotta tell you baby
Tonight looks good on you
A relatively slow song, Tonight Looks Good On You is the perfect blend of dreamy and down-home. You’ll be able to sway in your partner’s arms without worrying about steps and beats, but you’ll also be able to throw in some spins if you’re a more advanced dancer.
Laura Bell Bundy – Two Step feat. Colt Ford
I’m gonna rock my cowboy hat and pink stilettos
We’re gonna stomp and kick until they make us all go home

Ed Sheeran – Shape of You
Girl you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me

I wanna drink from your loving cup
Swear I’ll never give you up
