15 Romantic Songs About Marriage that You’ll Want to Play at Your Wedding


When you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, the next logical thing to do is start planning for a future together. And in that future, marriage is one of those milestones that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Many artists have sung about the merits of marriage – the highs and lows, the sweet little events and the grand gestures. So if you’re looking for the perfect song about finally tying the knot or celebrating years of being married, this is the playlist for you!

Bruno Mars – Marry You

Let’s start off this list with a whimsical and spontaneous song that you can sing to your partner when you’re in Vegas. Marry You is a song about being drunk and deliriously happy enough to sweep your partner off your feet so you can suddenly get married. It might not be the most practical thing to do, but it’s certainly a romantic idea for couples who are madly in love with each other.

Lyrics for the aisle: Well I know this little chapel on the boulevard we can go oh oh oh

No one will know oh oh oh oh, come on, girl

Who cares if we’re trashed got a pocket full of cash we can blow oh oh oh

Shots of patron and it’s on, girl.

Don’t say no, no, no, no-no

Just say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah

And we’ll go, go, go, go-go

If you’re ready, like I’m ready

Train – Marry Me

For a more romantic take on proposing to someone, here’s Train’s Marry Me. It’s basically a sweet, modern proposal song that not going to get old any time soon. Pair the swoon-worthy lyrics with the subtle sounds of a piano and guitar and you’ll practically have your partner dragging you to the altar!

Lyrics for the aisle: Together can never be close enough for me

Feel like I am close enough to you

You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you

And you’re beautiful

Now that the wait is over

And love and has finally shown her my way

Marry me

Today and every day

Frank Sinatra – Love and Marriage

Frank Sinatra’s Love and Marriage might not be the type of song you dance to at your wedding, but it’s a great song nonetheless. This song simply hammers home the idea that marriage can’t possibly work out if there’s no love involved. And conversely, what’s the point of being in love with each other if you won’t be there to meet each other at the end of the aisle?

Lyrics for the aisle: Love and marriage, love and marriage

Go together like a horse and carriage

This I tell ya, brother, you can’t have one without the other

Love and marriage, love and marriage

It’s an institute you can’t disparage

Ask the local gentry and they will say it’s elementary

Adam Sandler – Grow Old with You

What better way to tell the one you love how far you’re willing to go for them than this song? There’s no mention of great feats like moving mountains and giving them the stars. Instead, this incredibly pragmatic song talks about giving you the remote, getting you medicine, and all the little sweet things you can do once you’re married.

Lyrics for the aisle: I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad

Carry you around when your arthritis is bad

All I wanna do is grow old with you

Natalie Cole – Inseparable

While not explicitly talking about marriage, this song is a great wedding song because of its meaning. Inseparable is a timeless classic that’s popular among couples simply because it’s a song about being together for life.

Lyrics for the aisle: Inseparable

That’s how it is


For the rest of our years

It’s so wonderful

To know you’ll always be around

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud

If you’re looking to get married any time soon, there’s no doubt that you’d consider this song to be your wedding song. Thinking Out Loud is one of those iconic romance songs that stick to an entire generation of listeners. And there’s no surprise in that because of its mellow rhythm and lyrics about growing old together,

Lyrics for the aisle: And darling I will be loving you ’til we’re 70

And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23

And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

Maybe just the touch of a hand

Oh me I fall in love with you every single day

And I just wanna tell you I am

Jamie Lawson – Wasn’t Expecting That

Perhaps not a great song to sing for new couples, but it’s definitely a song that will hit a chord with couples who have battled the ravages of a disease together. I Wasn’t Expecting That is about the first glimpse of love that blossomed into a beautiful relationship. The song goes through several events in the life of the couple until, at the end, the protagonist’s partner succumbed to an illness.

Lyrics for the aisle: I thought love wasn’t meant to last

I thought you were just passing through

If I ever get the nerve to ask

What did I get right to deserve somebody like you?

I wasn’t expecting that

Kenny Rogers – Through the Years

Now this one’s a classic among couples who have celebrated many anniversaries together. Through the Years is a song that looks back on a couple’s life together – both the good times and the bad times. It’s a song that celebrates the ups and downs of a love that has lasted through the years.

Lyrics for the aisle: Through the years

You’ve never let me down

You turned my life around

The sweetest days I’ve found

I’ve found with you

Through the years

I’ve never been afraid

I’ve loved the life we’ve made

And I’m so glad I stayed

Right here with you

Through the years

Coldplay – Wedding Bells

Now let’s move on to something a little different. Wedding Bells is not your typical marriage song because it’s told from the perspective of the bride’s ex. He laments how the woman he loves is now getting married to someone else while he tries to drown himself in sorrow. If someone you have unrequited feelings for is about to get married, this is sure to bring you to tears.

Lyrics for the aisle: Wedding Bells ringing up upon that hill

And I don’t wanna swallow such a bitter pill

You keep on moving, baby I stay still

I always loved you and I always will

Shania Twain – From this Moment

This song reads just like a wedding vow, so it could be inspirational for you if you’re looking to personalize your wedding vows. Strangely enough, the song has less than romantic beginnings. Twain thought of the song while she was bored at a soccer game that she and her husband had attended. We guess that’s what love can sometimes be about – getting bored out of your mind just so your partner can be happy.

Lyrics for the aisle: From this moment as long as I live

I will love you, I promise you this

There is nothing I wouldn’t give

From this moment on

From this moment as long as I live

I will love you, I promise you this

There is nothing I wouldn’t give

From this moment on

Colbie Caillat – I Do

I Do is a song that’s perfect for when you finally realize that you’re ready to get married. In the song, the protagonist admits that she’s always been living for herself. But because of a special someone, she’s now ready to tie the knot with her long-awaited “I Do.” It’s the perfect marriage song for those who are used to flying solo in life.

Lyrics for the aisle: It’s always been about me, myself, and I

I thought relationships were nothing but a waste of time

I never wanted to be anybody’s other half

I was happy saying I had a love that wouldn’t last

That was the only way I knew ’til I met you

98 Degrees – I Do (Cherish You)

Now here’s the “I do” song that most of you 90s kids all know. Yes, it’s a little cheesy, and that’s no surprise since it’s from a boyband. But come on, as kids you definitely imagined walking down the aisle or waiting at the end of the aisle to this song!

Lyrics for the aisle: I do cherish you

For the rest of my life

You don’t have to think twice

I will love you still

From the depths of my soul

It’s beyond my control

I’ve waited so long to say this to you

If you’re asking do I love you this much

I do

Tracy Chapman – Wedding Song

Tracy Chapman’s aptly titled Wedding Song is about a woman who has pledged herself to the one she has always imagined to be her lifelong partner. She gives herself entirely to partner – heart, mind, and soul.

Lyrics for the aisle: To you I give my pledge

I honor all that’s good

In this life we’re living

To think not only of myself

But of the greater union

Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

We all know this is the iconic wedding song for the Twilight series. But even if you’re not a fan of the franchise, it’s still a beautiful song about destiny and marriage. In this song, the protagonist claims that she has loved her partner for a thousand years and will love him for a thousand more.

Lyrics for the aisle: And all along I believed I would find you

Time has brought your heart to me

I have loved you for a thousand years

I’ll love you for a thousand more

The Platters – With this Ring

We cap off this list with a song that’s perfect for couples who used to believe they’d never settle down. With this Ring is a pledge in the form of a song. The protagonist admits that he/she used to be a wanderer in life. But since meeting a fateful partner, he/she has never thought that they’d be the one to exchange their wandering ways for a little band of gold that symbolizes a lifelong love.

Lyrics for the aisle: Baby, I never thought so much love

Could fit in a little band of gold

But I’m telling you, darling

I feel it in my heart, got it in my soul

With this ring I promise I’ll always love you, always love you

With this ring I promise I’ll always love you, always love you

Every couple is different, and that’s why there are so many unique and fitting songs that perfectly capture the essence of your love. So whether you’ve been married for decades or are just getting around to finally sealing the deal, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect marriage song on this list!
