Some couples just don’t have a song. Or they have twenty songs. And even if you do “have a song,” do you really want to use it for your wedding? Is it going to tell your guests anything significant about what makes your relationships yours? We’ve put together a list of the best wedding songs for 2014 that are not only beautiful, but perfect for beginning to help your guests understand exactly what’s put you and your partner in the center of that floor for you first dance as a married couple.
“All of Me” by John Legend is all over the internet and the radio waves right now. However, if the lyrics don’t already stand alone as a piece of what makes this an amazing first dance song, maybe the history will. Legend performed it as a tribute to his wife at his own wedding in September 2013.
“Safe and Sound” by Capital Cities is about as far from a tradition wedding song as you can get. With its upbeat, almost parade-like melody, it makes guests listen to the lyrics (You could be my luck/Even if the sky is falling down/I know that we’ll be safe and sound) even harder.
Beyonce’s surprise release album took the world by storm. We’re predicting that “XO” is going to be the new “Don’t Stop Believing” ““ it’s a night ender.
“Treasure” by Bruno Mars is not a first dance for the faint of heart. With gorgeous lyrics and a beat that’s made to turn up to, if your partner and you want to wow a crowd with a choreographed first dance that also has some phenomenally moving lyrics, put this at the top of your list.
John Mayer’s been a fixture at weddings for years. But his joint release with Katy Perry, “Who You Love” is just sickeningly perfect for a first dance. It’s a sweet anthem of dedication written at your partner and for anyone watching your union.
