- To Make You Feel My Love by Garth Brooks
This famous song was written by Bob Dylan in 1997 and gained new notoriety when it was performed by Adele in 2008. But just after its initial release, there was this great version by Garth Brooks in 1998.
- From This Moment On by Shania Twain
I give my hand to you with all my heart
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
- Sunday Kind of Love by Reba McEntire
If you like a country twang instead of a soulful growl, Reba’s version of Sunday Kind of Love is a great choice for a sweet love song.
- When You Say Nothing at All by Alison Krauss
The perfect song for the strong, silent type, these lyrics are all about expressing love without words. There are other versions of this song, but we like this one best.
- Cowboy Take Me Away by Dixie Chicks
A song about escaping the world with the one person you want to be with most? Oh it sounds good to me...
- From the Ground Up by Dan + Shay
Dan + Shay have a whole list of top country wedding songs on their roster. This sweet tune is all about building a life together. Perfect wedding theme!
And we'll build this love from the ground up
Now 'til forever it's all of me, all of you
Just take my hand
And I'll be the man your dad hoped that I'd be
- Butterflies by Kacey Musgraves
Kacey Musgraves’ poppy country sound is a fresh take, and will add a little country flavor without too much twang.
- Honeybee by Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton could honestly have a dozen songs on this list, but we limited it to one — the sweet as pie Honeybee.
You'll be my sunny day
I'll be your shade tree
You'll be my honeysuckle
I'll be your honey bee
- I’d Love to Change Your Name by Kenny Chesney
This tune is upbeat and fun, and it’s super wedding appropriate — all about getting married and joining names.
- Say Forever You’ll Be Mine by Dolly Parton
A declaration of eternal love, no matter what the world throws at you. Sung the way only Dolly can.
Darling, I won't promise you
That we'll be happy all the time
But forever I am yours, say forever you'll be mine
- Could I Have This Dance by Anne Murray
This song reminisces about the first time a couple danced together, and it’s perfect for a wedding first dance.
- Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis
This song has been a wedding favorite since it was first released back in 1987. Your parents might have danced to it at their wedding!
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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
- 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
- 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.
- 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
