Wedding Morning Playlist

Before a bride heads over to that “Chapel of Love”, one thing is for sure, she will spend hours getting ready! While getting her makeup and hair done, many brides use this time to begin celebrating with their closest friends. Bridal parties often arrive early in the morning, equipped with bottles of champagne, breakfast goodies and of course, tons of upbeat tunes. With so many love songs in existence, creating a wedding playlist for the bride can make those few nerve wracking hours feel extra special. Here is a list of my favorite 25 songs that can be played before attending any wedding.

  1. “Goin’ To The Chapel” by the Dixie Cups
  2. “Wishin’ And Hopin’” by Ani Difranco
  3. “Today I Met The Boy I’m Going To Marry” by Darlene Love
  4. “Ever Ever After” by Carrie Underwood
  5. “I Do” by Colbie Caillat
  6. “Marry You” by Bruno Mars
  7. “Wedding Bell Blues” by the cast of Glee
  8. “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” by the Beach Boys
  9. “Glamorous” by Fergie
  10. “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper
  11. “Love Story” by Taylor Swift
  12. “It’s In His Kiss” by Cher
  13. “Perfect Day” by Hoku
  14. “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” by Beyonce
  15. “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield
  16. “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson
  17. “Crazy In Love” by Beyonce
  18. “Say Hey (I Love You)” by Michael Franti
  19. “White Wedding” by Billy Idol
  20. “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease
  21. “I Say A Little Prayer (Reggae Mix)” by Dianna King
  22. “I Gotta Feeling” from the Black Eyed Peas
  23. “This Will Be” by Natalie Cole
  24. “True Blue” by Madonna
  25. “Get Me To The Church On Time” by Frank Sinatra

All of these great songs can be downloaded off iTunes or you can listen to them by clicking on the link. If you wish to add to this list, you may want to consider the following:

Keep the songs upbeat. While “Endless Love” may describe the happy couple, the song itself can be a snoozer. This time of the day, which is usually spent with your closest friends and family, should be energetic and upbeat.  The songs on your playlist should reflect that.

Consider your theme. If a bride has spent a lot of time creating details to coincide with a specific wedding theme, this might be a good opportunity to include related songs. For instance, if she is having a tropical beach wedding, you may want to include a little “One Love” by Bob Marley.

Always listen to the lyrics. While many of these songs may be age appropriate for the bride and her friends, remember that in most cases, grandparents and flower girls also attend the pre party. If you are unsure how family members may react, you may want to get the censored version of certain songs.

Remember the Golden Oldies. While we all adore Lady Gaga, your playlist should include a balance of old and new stuff to appeal to everyone in attendance.  You will be shocked by how many people know the words and sing along to some of the older soundtracks.

Ask the alumni. If this is your first time attending such a gathering, it may be wise to ask someone who has already been part of such a festive occasion. Odds are, someone in the wedding party has attended a ‘getting ready’ session in which music was played to start the party and ease up some pre wedding jitters. Ask them what songs were played.

Make it personal. This is the bride’s wedding day, so make sure to include some of her favorite tunes or songs that bring back a happy memory. Growing up, my best friend and I constantly jammed out to Abba’s “Dancing Queen” so of course it was included in the Wedding Morning Playlist I created for her. Always consider the bride’s taste when choosing songs to make the glamor process extra special and relaxing.

Did I miss any good ones? Make sure to leave a comment below if you have any other suggestions. I would love to hear your feedback.

      I actually had that song in my first cut but replaced it with her “Love Story” because I felt it was more upbeat. Taylor Swift is great though. You can’t go wrong with any of her song choices.

    • ReplySociaLife 21 Jul

      Hi Desiree. In my experience I have seen bridesmaids walk down to many different songs. If you are looking for something different, I have seen the girls walk to “No Day But Today” from Rent, “Bittersweet Symphony”, and have also seen the girls walk down to an instrumental version of the same song the bride walks to. The lyrics don’t begin until she begins her walk down the aisle. I think it’s really up the the brides taste. It’s nice to include a favorite song or something that is meaningful to the girls.

  • ReplyLiaB 22 Jul

    “Time Warp” – Rocky Horror Picture Show
    “Sex on fire” – Kings of Leon
    “Country Girl(Shake It For Me)” – Luke Bryan

    “I Get Off” – Halestorm
    Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen (Everyone needs some Queen in their life)
    “Be My Husband – Live from Union Chapel” – Damien Rice
    “The Warrior’s Code” – Dropkick Murphy’s

    “Ghosts That We Knew” – Mumford & Sons
    “I Will Wait” – Mumford & Sons
    “Marry Me – First Dance Mix” – Train

    “Ball and Chain” – Social Distortion (I’m showing my punk side ;))
    “Industructable” – Rancid
    “Big Balls” – Ac/Dc (because you need to laugh and have fun, not stress out over EVERYTHING)
