The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

R&B has found a new superstar in Leon Bridges, and this title track from Bridges’ 2015 album is often praised for the sentimentality of its lyrics. It is a song that can be used for the bridal procession, the recessional, or the lighting of the unity candle.

Maroon 5 – Sugar

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You are the one thing, one thing I’m living for
I don’t wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love

Maroon 5 is known for upbeat, pop hits like this one from 2015, a song that combines a dance tempo with catchy lyrics. This is a celebratory song that you will want to share with all of your wedding guests at the reception.

Thomas Rhett – Die A Happy Man

Released in September 2015 on the album Tangled Up

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Oh, if all I got is your hand in my hand
Baby, I could die a happy man

The modern country style of Thomas Rhett is popular with younger couples, and this song expresses how important the love of a good woman is to a man. Let her know that all you really need is her love when this song is played before she walks down the aisle.

I’m gonna hold you like I’m saying goodbye
Wherever we’re standing
I won’t take you for granted

Meghan Trainor wrote many hits for other artists before she embarked upon a solo career of her own to produce hits like this one. Trainor gets an assist from John Legend to deliver a song that has become a staple of modern weddings, often used in the formal processional.

The WORST song to play at a wedding from 2015? Drunk On A Plane by Dierks Bentley.

Lyrics: “We had this date marked on the calendar forever, We’d take that new wed limo airport ride together, I feel like a plastic groom alone there at the top of the cake, So hey, I’m getting drunk on a plane”

best 2015 wedding songs


2015 was a nice year for love ballads and wedding songs. Artists such as Andy Grammer and Meghan Trainor make this list of the best 2015 wedding songs, sharing that honor with Maroon 5, Chris Stapleton, and more. You can find selections for every part of your wedding ceremony on our list.

Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) – Silento

Released in May 2015 on the album Watch Me

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Now break your legs
Break your legs
Tell ’em “break your legs”
Break your legs

Everyone was doing the Whip and Nae Nae with Silento in 2015, and this song has become ingrained in popular culture. Some songs take on a life of their own, and there is no better way to add fun to your wedding festivities than including this song on the playlist.

Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd

Released in June 2015 on the album Beauty Behind the Madness

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I can’t feel my face when I’m with you
But I love it, but I love it

There will be a lot of celebrating on your wedding day, and this song from The Weeknd can stoke the fires of your reception when the energy gets low. Let the passion of the music’s beat inspire all of your wedding guests to break out their finest dance moves.

Tennessee Whiskey – Chris Stapleton

Released in 2015 on the album Traveller

Lyrics To Inspire You:

You’re as smooth as Tennessee whiskey
You’re as sweet as strawberry wine
You’re as warm as a glass of brandy
And honey, I stay stoned on your love all the time

Many country recording artists such as David Allen Coe and George Jones released this song before Chris Stapleton, but there is something unique about Stapleton’s bluesy delivery that makes this version special. It would be an appropriate song for the first wedding dance shared by the newlyweds.

Cake by the Ocean – DNCE

Released in September 2015 on the album DNCE

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Red velvet, vanilla, chocolate in my life
Confetti, I’m ready, I need it every night

You can use this 2015 dance song by DNCE as the perfect soundtrack for the cutting of your wedding cake. The song will allow you to progress right from the cake-cutting to the dance floor for more wedding-day merriment.

Dear Future Husband – Meghan Trainor

Released in March 2015 on the album Title

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Here’s a few things you’ll need to know if you wanna be
My one and only all my life
Dear future husband

Many brides would probably like to write a letter to their future husband as Meghan Trainor sings about in this 2015 love song, and all brides have an idea of what they want their husband to be. This song sums up those hopes and desires, and it can be played especially for the groom.

My House – Flo Rida

Released in October 2015 on the album My House

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Welcome to my house
Play that music too loud
Show me what you do now
We don’t have to go out

Those who want to set the right tone for a wedding reception should think about blasting this Flo Rida hit as the bride and groom make their entrance to the reception hall. It lets everyone know that the happy couple appreciates all the wedding toasts and good wishes on their special day.

Want To Want Me – Jason Derulo

Released in March 2015 on the album Everything Is 4

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Girl you’re the one I want to want me
And if you want me, girl you got me
There’s nothing I, no I wouldn’t do
Just to get up next to you

All that a groom really wants on his wedding day is to know that his bride will be his forever, and that is exactly what Jason Derulo sings about in this 2015 love song. At some point in the wedding reception, the bride and groom should take the dance floor alone while this song plays.

Ex’s & Oh’s – Elle King

Released in February 2015 on the album Love Stuff

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Ex’s and the oh, oh, oh’s they haunt me
Like ghosts they want me to make ’em all
They won’t let go
Ex’s and oh’s

Elle King emerged as a significant songstress of the decade with this hit in 2015, and her music is often heard in modern wedding celebrations. This song will be more appropriate for wedding day dancing than for use in the actual ceremony.

Hotline Bling – Drake

Released in July 2015 on the album Views

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Late night when you need my love
And I know when that hotline bling
That can only mean one thing

A little Drake can be used to liven up any wedding reception, especially if the crowd is mostly made up of young people. This is a straight-up dance tune that should be played at the wedding reception when the celebration is at its peak.

How Deep Is Your Love – Calvin Harris & Disciples

Released in July 2015 on the album How Deep Is Your Love

Lyrics To Inspire You:

How deep is your love?
Is it like the ocean?
What devotion? Are you?

Calvin Harris & Disciples ask the question that is on every couple’s mind as they prepare to step into a life together. Some couples have chosen to use this song for their first dance while others play it as the wedding guests are arriving.

Heartbeat Song – Kelly Clarkson

Released in January 2015 on the album Piece by Piece

Lyrics To Inspire You:

This is my heartbeat song and I’m gonna play it
Been so long I forgot how to turn it up up up up all night long

Kelly Clarkson parlayed her win on the first season of American Idol into a pop career that has spanned more than a decade, thanks in part to songs like this one which resonates with young women. It is a song that brides like to include on the list of wedding reception dance music.

Baby Be My Love Song – Easton Corbin

Released in June 2015 on the album About to Get Real

Lyrics To Inspire You:

Baby be my, “Oh hell yeah!”
I feel a little sing-along, sing-along comin’ on
Baby be my love song

A wedding day song that can be set aside, especially for the bride is this one from Easton Corbin, and some grooms like to choose it for the first dance. The song can also be played while the wedding party is taking up their places at the altar.

Homegrown Honey – Darius Rucker

Released in March 2015 on the album Southern Style

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I’ll bet the boys at home can’t leave you alone
You little homegrown honey, honey, honey
You’re so money, money, money

This song by Darius Rucker will let every wedding guest know that they are about to witness the culmination of a classic love story between a couple with strong family and community ties. The bride should be the focal point when this song is played at the reception.

All night ’til the sun comes back
