I can't wait to live my life with you, I can't wait to start

You and I will never be apart

My dreams came true because of you

Kacey Musgraves’ poppy country sound is a fresh take, and will add a little country flavor without too much twang.

I'll be your shade tree

You'll be my honeysuckle

I'll be your honey bee

That we'll be happy all the time

  1. Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis

  1. Makin’ Plans by Miranda Lambert

Country music has some of the best lyrics about starting life out together — so full of optimism and excitement for the future. Miranda Lambert’s Makin’ Plans fits right in.

Cause I know you like the back of my hand

Got a heart of gold and a piece of land

I'm your girl and you're my man

And we're makin' plans

  1. Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett

As if this song weren’t sweet enough, the video featuring Thomas Rhett and his real wife just makes it that much sweeter.

And I know that I can't ever tell you enough

That all I need in this life is your crazy love

If I never get to see the Northern lights

Or if I never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night

Oh if all I got is your hand in my hand

Baby I could die a happy man

  1. I Don’t Dance by Lee Brice

How many grooms don’t think they’re the “dancing type?” This is the perfect wedding song for them.

  1. You Make it Easy by Jason Aldean

The slow vibe of this love song makes it a top country wedding song for the first dance. And the lyrics sure don’t hurt. 

You make it easy

Lovin' up on you

Make it easy

With every little thing you do

You're my sunshine in the darkest days

My better half, my saving grace

You make me who I wanna be

You make it easy

  1. Still the One by Shania Twain

Shania is the only person to get two entries on this list, because she’s the GOAT. 

Looks like we made it

Look how far we've come my baby

We mighta took the long way

We knew we'd get there someday

  1. Born to Love You by LANCO

This country rock tune will keep with the overall theme. But the upbeat tempo and rock vibe will keep things feeling fresh on the dance floor.

  1. Yours by Russell Dickerson

This release was The Knot’s 2016 Top New Wedding Song of the Year, and it’s easy to see why. Sweet lyrics and a great vocal performance make this a wedding standout.

I came to life when I first kissed you

the best me has his arms around you

you make me better than I was before

Thank God I'm YOURS
