A video without a soundtrack is like food without the smell. Yes, you could still feel textures and basic tastes like sweet or salty, but the flavor won’t be there. The right soundtrack not only sets the mood for your wedding video, but it also adds another layer of meaning to it. It can pull the right emotional triggers and make your viewers feel moved, nostalgic, happy, or excited.
Your wedding’s highlights reel will be there for you to watch again and again over the years, and it should honor your relationship and your special day. Even if you two don’t have a particular song in mind, don’t worry.
Here are our top ten songs for a wedding video, whether you’re into old school romance, modern hits, or even quirky tunes that will make you look back and smile. Go ahead, pick your soundtrack, and create your own video with Magisto’s wedding video maker.
Top 10 Songs for a Wedding Video:
Ed Sheeran – Perfect
This immediate-classic, with lyrics like “Be my girl, I’ll be your man/I see my future in your eyes” will melt even the coldest of hearts. Its beautiful melody will add a soulful touch to any wedding video.
Beyoncé – Love On Top
Were you looking for a modern hip with nostalgic retro vibes? You got it. Queen Bey serves us here with 3 (!) key changes that, together with the uptempo beat, makes it a perfect feel-good soundtrack for couples who don’t want to get too cheesy.
Jack Johnson – Better Together
A heartwarming acoustic song that can be a perfect fit for a boho-wedding video. The lyrics will make more and more sense as you two will grow up together as a couple: “It’s not always easy, and sometimes life can be deceiving/I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together.
Bruno Mars – Marry You
Well, the song’s title pretty much says it all. This 60-inspired tune might be well known as a proposal song, but it can spice up any wedding video. Can’t go wrong with this one
Rihanna – We Found Love ft. Calvin Harris
If your wedding video is filled with epic dance clips, you should consider this EDM hit as a soundtrack. It’s edgy, smooth, and its drop will give the video’s peak a goosebumps effect
Stevie Wonder – For Once In My Life
A classy couple deserves a classic song – an uptempo gem that won’t lose its charm for many years to come. Wonder’s soft voice always gives that fuzzy warm feeling, and that’s just what you want to feel when watching your wedding video.
Bee Gees – How Deep Is Your Love
A legendary pop ballad that is perfect for a laid-back, relaxed wedding video. Imagine all the couples who got married to this tune for the past 40 years, and realize how special it is.
Daniel Caesar – Best Part (feat. H.E.R.)
In case you’re looking for something more recent, this gorgeous acoustic R&B duet has beautiful harmonies, and it can go perfectly with a hip, urban wedding.
Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight
״Some day, when I’m awfully low/When the world is cold/I will feel a glow just thinking of you/And the way you look tonight.” Some classics you just can’t beat. Plus, it’s known as Monica and Chandler’s song, so what else is there to say?
Savage Garden – Truly Madly Deeply
One of the most iconic love songs of the ’90s, that stands the test of time despite being a bit, um, cheesy. A perfect sweet addition to any classic, traditional wedding video.
