Released in 2017 on the album Divide

It’s just something that I want to do

Falling deeper in love with you

Shape of You

I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do
Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body

This song refers to physical love in a relationship and how it can bloom into emotional love later. Sheeran sings about how much he loves the physical intimacy that he shares with his partner. He also makes it clear that their intimacy is a part of the reason why he’s falling in love with her.

“Shape of You” is upbeat and fun, which makes it a great song for the bride and groom to share with your wedding party and guests. There are many styles of dancing you could do to the melody of this particular song; choreographing a dance to it would be a fun way for you, your partner, and your wedding party to entertain your guests.

(duet with Beyonce)
Released in 2017 on the album Perfect Duet

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

Lay It All On Me

Released in 2015 on the album X

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

If you’re scared when you’re out on your own
Just remember me
‘Cause I won’t let you go, let alone
Lay it all on me

Sheeran lends his vocals to this song by Rudimental, and the message of the song is very appropriate for a wedding. One of the responsibilities of marriage is to listen to your partner when they’re upset.

“Lay It All On Me” sends the message that you’re willing to share their burdens so they don’t get too heavy. The song has an electronic background, but it doesn’t overshadow the sincerity of the vocals or the lyrics.

I Was Made for Loving You

(Tori Kelly featuring Ed Sheeran)
Released in 2015 on the album Unbreakable Smile

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Even though we may be hopeless hearts just passing through
Every bone screaming I don’t know what we should do
All I know is, darling, I was made for loving you


Released in 2015 on the album X

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

So you can keep me inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home

Acoustic tracks are great songs to put on your wedding playlist because of their simplicity and gentle sound. They don’t demand center stage for the couple’s dance. Instead, they provide subtle background music that enhances the bride and groom’s first dance together as a married couple.

In “Photograph”, Sheeran professes a desire for his loved one to preserve their special memories together in a photograph. You will no doubt reminisce about yourself and your partner’s journey while dancing to this song.

Thinking Out Loud

Released in 2014 on the album X

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I’m thinking out loud
Maybe we found love right where we are

This track is the perfect choice for the couple’s first dance as newlyweds. It keeps a rhythmic pace, which is ideal for the couple’s first waltz. The song was influenced heavily by soul music, which makes it soothing and easy to listen to. The acoustic guitar, drums, and piano chords are gentle enough that they don’t overshadow Sheeran’s genuine vocals.

The lyrics serve as a promise from Sheeran to love his partner even when they’re old and gray. “Thinking Out Loud” actually sounds like a person’s wedding vows, which makes it an appropriate choice for your reception playlist.

Tenerife Sea

Released in 2014 on the album X

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Should this be the last thing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
‘Cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need
I’m so in love

Old School Love

(Lupe Fiasco featuring Ed Sheeran)
Released in 2013 on the album Old School Love

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

As long as I’m here
As long as you love me
Give me that old school love right now

Give Me Love

Released in 2012 on the album +

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Give me love like never before
‘Cause lately I’ve been craving more

This song is very subdued and mellow, which makes it a great choice to have as the background to the couple’s waltz during the reception. The lyrics suggest a complicated relationship between Sheeran and his lover, but that doesn’t have to disqualify it as a wedding song.

On the contrary, “Give Me Love”‘s haunting lyrics could serve to make you and your partner appreciate all the struggles that you two went through to get where you are today. The song’s increase in intensity towards the end will surely get you, your partner, and your guests emotional.

Kiss Me

Released in 2011 on the album +

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

So kiss me like you wanna be loved
You wanna be loved
You wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love

This song would make a great addition to your reception, especially for the bride and groom’s first dance song. The lyrics are a simple declaration of Sheeran’s desire to be near the woman he loves. He’s falling in love with her, and he craves intimacy that he can only get from her.

Many couples can easily relate to this song and its simple, romantic sentiments. “Kiss Me” could easily symbolize your closeness to your partner while also serving as a nostalgic reminder of how you first fell in love.

Not all couples prefer acoustic music or pop songs; some people prefer to have a little more variety in their wedding playlists. If you’re one of these couples, this song is perfect for you. The Hip Hop collaboration between Ed Sheeran and Lupe Fiasco is almost a retrospective of the genre.

But, Sheeran’s lyrics in the chorus make it clear that it is a love song. “Old School Love” clearly has a double meaning. Fiasco expresses an inclination towards old-school music while Sheeran expresses a desire for a traditional relationship with the person he loves. If you and your partner relate to this sentiment, then this song may be the perfect choice for you.
