Wedding season is upon us! Whether you are preparing your own wedding, providing musical guidance for a friend, or planning for a day far, far away – here are some tunes you should consider:

1. 'Sugar' by Maroon 5

This recent smash hit from Maroon 5 makes a fantastic wedding love song because of its sweet message. Plus, to make the music video, Adam Levine and the gang surprised couples across Los Angeles by performing at their wedding receptions. If you haven’t seen this incredible music video, grab some tissues!


2. 'All of Me' by John Legend

This emotional ballad made the world realize Chrissy Teigen is one lucky lady! Grammy winning, American singer-songwriter John Legend puts his whole heart into this one, making it the perfect song for any couple's first dance.


3. 'Love Is All There Is' by Dana International

The lyrics say it all – love is all there is! Israeli pop singer Sharon Cohen (known professionally as Dana International) is a past winner of the popular Eurovision Song Contest and known worldwide for her vast catalog of romantic songs including "When Men Dance" and "I Need Your Love."


4. 'Can You Feel the Love Tonight' by Elton John

This epic love song captures the timeless love of Simba and Nala. We’d recommend the original version by British singer-songwriter Elton John for the wedding dance – but it's definitely worth watching this fantastic scene from "The Lion King."


5. 'Thinking Out Loud' by Ed Sheeran

English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran created a beautiful and sensitive music video for this hit single. The song is perfectly romantic, and watching the music video will make you want to practice your dance steps!


6. 'Your Song' by Ellie Goulding

This is a fantastic rendition of an Elton John classic by British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding. How perfect is it for nuptials? Goulding performed the song at the wedding reception of Prince William and Kate Middleton at Buckingham Palace in 2011.


7. 'When a Man Loves a Woman' by Percy Sledge

Percy Sledge’s hit from the 1960s remains just as true and relevant today. This love song by Alabama native Sledge made Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 500 greatest songs of all time. If you are looking for a classic – this is it.
