Wedding music is essential to all wedding celebrations. From the moment the doors open and the bride walks down the aisle, to the ceremonial events taking place, music adds more vibrance to this significant day by bringing out all the feel-good emotions that are associated with each event.
If you’re still struggling to piece together your dream wedding playlist, we have compiled a list of the 10 most popular wedding songs across eras and includes a variety of genres:
