We know you are busy planning everything else, so we thought it would be nice to have a comprehensive list of the best wedding songs, from a variety of genres, from start to finish.

Canapes & Cocktails

People are arriving to your wedding, they are welcomed with champagne, canapés, warm hellos from family, friends and gorgeous music. People are wanting to mingle, chat and catch up. The music should facilitate this and should set the tone for the night ahead. It should be warm, inviting, light and easy on the ears, simply creating a romantic and ambient vibe. We suggest the following:

Romantic Jazz

Acoustic Covers

Bridal Party Entrances

The MC has asked your guests to take their seats, and it is time for our first tradition of the night, and that is, giving a big warm welcome to the bridal party as they formally enter the reception. These songs should be energetic, up beat and get everybody clapping along as each couple enters the room. Be sure to have your dj cue up the music so you enter at the chorus or at the peak of the song.

Modern Entrances

Classic Entrances

Dinner and Love Songs

Your guests sit down and the venue staff begin to bring out the entrees and mains to the tables. We need some music to help celebrate the love that the couple share for each other, whilst still allowing guests to talk freely and enjoy the amazing food with some easy listening tunes. We have some of the best new and classic love song selections below that are perfect for the dinner segment of the night.
