Best 1999 Wedding Songs

Amazed – Lonestar

Released in March 1999 on the album Lonely Grill

This song was a crossover smash for the country band Lonestar, and it has gone on to become one of the most popular 1999 wedding songs.

It has the perfect tempo to be used during the processional of the bridal party, and some brides even choose it as an alternative to the standard wedding march because of its powerful lyrics.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I wanna spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever

Back At One – Brian McKnight

Released in August 1999 on the album Back at One

R&B star and guitarist Brian McKnight landed on multiple charts with this soft classic, a song that spells out all the ways a man loves his chosen one. As you might expect, grooms like to add this song to the wedding ceremony as something special for their bride.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

One, you’re like a dream come true
Two, just wanna be with you
Three, girl, It’s plain to see
That you’re the only one for me

Spend My Life with You – Eric Benét

Released in June 1999 on the album A Day in the Life

Eric Benét is not remembered as one of the major stars of the 90s, but he did manage to produce this song which describes all the sentiments you want to express at your wedding.

Couples have found many creative ways to use the song, including as an interlude between the arrival of the bridal party and the entrance of the blushing bride.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I was incomplete ’til the day you walked into my life
And I never knew that my heart could feel
So precious and pure, our love is so real

I Knew I Loved You – Savage Garden

Released in September 1999 on the album Affirmation

Savage Garden nailed it with this song, and it became the group’s most enduring hit from the 90s. The song is all about destiny that brings lovers together despite all odds, and dancing to it with your partner will create a memory that you’ll not soon forget.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

Higher – Creed

Released in August 1999 on the album Human Clay

The band Creed drew on its Christian roots to produce this rock classic, and the vocals of Scott Stapp are a perfect match for Mark Tremonti’s guitar work.

Even though the song has a heavy feel to it, it has still found its way into the wedding ceremonies of many modern couples because of its distinct lyrical message.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Can you take me higher
To a place where blind men see?
Can you take me higher
To a place with golden streets?

You Had Me From Hello – Kenny Chesney

Released in April 1999 on the album Everywhere We Go

Kenny Chesney can thank the film Jerry Maguire for inspiring this massive hit from 1999, and newlyweds agree that it is a perfect wedding song.

Like all good wedding songs, this one hearkens back to those moments when you were first falling in love with your one and only.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Well, you had me from “Hello”
I felt love start to grow the moment I looked into your eyes,
You won me, it was over from the start

How Forever Feels – Kenny Chesney

Released in December 1998 on the album Everywhere We Go

Another Kenny Chesney hit that couples might want to consider for their wedding reception is this uptempo number. It should be used as a dance tune, to be sure, but it gets everyone involved in line dancing and sharing in your good fortune on your wedding day.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Down on one knee on momma’s front steps
Man, I’m gonna die if she really says “yes”
I wanna know how forever feels

My Best Friend – Tim McGraw

Released in October 1999 on the album A Place in the Sun

Country superstar Tim McGraw knows a thing or two about a successful romantic relationship, and he surely was thinking about his wife Faith Hill when he released this song.

It’s a song that lyrically sums up all the things that you and your new spouse should be to one another, so give it a place of honor at your wedding.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I don’t know where I’d be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You’re my best friend

I Love You – Martina McBride

Released in July 1999 on the album Emotion

The beautiful voice of Martina McBride soars on this song which breaks down the emotions of your wedding day to the most important essentials.

It’s the perfect song to say all the things to your new spouse that you have trouble finding the words for, and sometimes simple songs are the best wedding choices.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I need you so desperately
Sure as the sky is blue
Baby, I love you
I love you

Music of My Heart – Gloria Estefan

Released in September 1999 on the album The Music of the Heart Soundtrack

Gloria Estefan and her band the Miami Sound Machine were legends of the 1990s, and this song blends the relationship between music and true love.

Every wedding couple has a soundtrack that accompanies their love affair, and this tune was probably a part of that soundtrack for many lovers who grew up in the 90s.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You taught me to run
You taught me to fly
Helped me to free the me inside
Helped me hear the music of my heart

Perfect Moment – Martine McCutcheon

Released in April 1999 on the album You Me & Us

This song from Martine McCutcheon is all about the perfect moment that you and your spouse will be creating on your wedding day, so don’t hesitate to use the song in your processional.

It is a song that can also be used for a father-daughter dance at the reception or as background music for the cutting of the wedding cake.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I wish I could frame the look in your eyes
The way that i feel for you inside
This is my moment
This is my perfect moment with you

You Won’t Ever Be Lonely – Andy Griggs

Released in April 1999 on the album Andy Griggs

This was the biggest hit recorded by Andy Griggs, one of the most underrated musical artists of the 90s. Griggs weaves a tale of hope and promises in his poignant lyrics.

It is just the right song to play as the groom and bridal party are taking up their places at the altar.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

And I promise you now
You won’t ever be lonely
You’re safe from the world
Wrapped in my arms

Every Day I Love You – Boyzone

Released in November 1999 on the album By Request

Boyzone hits all the right notes in this pop classic from 1999, a song that still finds its way into wedding festivities today.

Your DJ should include this on the list of reception dance music, and the song can also be used for your send-off when the time comes to depart for the honeymoon.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Everyday I love you
I never thought that dreams came true
But you showed me that they do

You Got Me – The Roots and Erykah Badu

Released in January 1999 on the album Things Fall Apart

Be sure to select some serious dance music for your wedding, and don’t forget to include this one from The Roots and Erykah Badu.

The great thing about “You Got Me” is that it retains a nice message in its lyrics that is not overwhelmed by the dance groove.

Lyrics To Inspire You:

If you don’t worry ’bout where I been or who I saw or
What club I went to with my homies
Baby don’t worry, you know that you got me

The Book of Love – The Magnetic Fields

Released in September 1999 on the album 69 Love Songs

But I, I love it when you read to me
And you, you can read me anything
