Imagine you are walking on the aisle with no music. I bet you would rather cancel the wedding.
Dream weddings are not only on elaborate aisles, elegant wedding suits and dresses, and intricate wedding invitations but also on romantic tunes that make couples laugh, dance and cry. A country song would perfectly fit the bill.
Prepare your suits and dresses as you listen to some of the sincerest and most romantic songs perfect for weddings.
1. Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flatts
This song has been recorded by several country artists, but the version of Rascal Flatts has truly captivated the hearts of many people.
The gist: A song of a journey to true love
Romantic line: Every long lost dream led me to where you are.
This song describes one’s journey of finding true love after lots of heartaches (broken road). It is appropriate for couples who have experienced vicissitude in relationships but manage to find real love in the end. When the song says that God bless the broken road that led me straight you, it becomes a magical moment.
2. To make you feel my love – Garth Brooks’ version
You might have heard recent versions of this song by various artists, country and non-country, but the version of Garth Brooks brings out a different vibe.
The gist: Assurance of love in times of troubles
Romantic line: I could hold you for a million years to make you feel my love.
In a marriage, everyone needs assurance of love even in the most difficult times. This inculcates responsibility. If the song is played at a wedding, the whole experience becomes more emotional, and can even make the couple cry to their knees. There ain’t nothing that I wouldn’t do to make you feel my love. When this line is played, there are surely no other words to express the exact emotions.
3. I swear – John Michael Montgomery
The gist: Assurance amidst doubts
Romantic line: Cause as time turns the page, my love won’t age at all.
In a marriage, everyone needs a firm promise. This song vividly delivers such. I swear by the moon and the stars and the skies. What more could one ask for when this line is played? That is already more than a promise.
4. I Cross my Heart: George Strait
The gist: A promise of the future
Romantic line: And share all the love and laughter that a lifetime will allow.
In all the world, you’ll never find a love as true as mine. At that very moment, a couple becomes one in an instant. It means that both are going to march down the aisles of struggles and happiness as long as they are alive. What a lovely scene it is when couples believe that marriage is a mix of both hardship and happiness.
5. Forever and Ever Amen – Randy Travis
The gist: A love that withstands time and physical changes
Romantic lines: Well, honey I don’t care, I am not (ain’t) in love with your hair. And if it all fell out, well, I’d love you anyway.
It is a priceless sight to see old couples listening to this song. I guess, the best part of marriage is seeing each other every day and still feeling in love with each other amidst physical changes. There is no greater joy than knowing that you can hold each other until your last breath.
6. Valentine – Martina McBride
The gist: A dream love
Romantic line: You opened my eyes and showed me how to love unselfishly.
I would say this song remains contemporary. On Valentine’s day, radio stations get loads of requests for this song, and everybody loves it. With or without a partner, a person gets enthralled by its melody and lyrics. It would be more enchanting if a couple listens to it. This song simply defines how it feels to fall in love. It delivers the thought that when we fall in love, we give our all. I would give you my heart until the end of time. If this is the wedding song, the couple will surely remember their memories of love.
7. Keeper of the Stars – Tracy Byrd
The gist: A destined love
Romantic line: It was no accident me finding you.
If you believe in destiny, this will fit your wedding playlist. So I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars. He sure knew what he was doing when he joined these two hearts. These lines purport destiny. In love and marriage, it is called destiny if you find each other at a perfect time; and, at the same time, you feel that someone divine has made it possible.
8. There’s Only You – Kevin Sharp
The gist: Only love
Romantic line: One perfect love comes your way.
What more could you expect when your partner says there is only you? This will surely make you mute in words but not in emotions. Everybody is fond of the idea that the only person he/she loves has his/her eyes only for him/her. If this is played in an exchange-of-vow ceremony, it will surely be a heavenly event.
9. I love the way you love me – John Michael Montgomery
The gist: Love accepts all
Romantic line: Heart and soul so completely
While the couple is dancing and looking at each other’s face and eyes, this song must be in sync. This reminds us that when we love, we have to accept the other person wholeheartedly. We do not mean to change that person just to conform to our standards. I could list a million things I love to like about you. But they all come down to one reason I could never live without you. These lines assure the couple that true love exists.
10. From Here to Eternity – Michael Peterson
The gist: A promise of forever
Romantic lines: I promise my love to you. Whatever you need I am here for you. And I’ll always stay from here to eternity.
This song should be in all wedding ceremonies to remind couples that getting married is not just a fun affair. Rather, we are promising forever to our partner. When you ask your partner the question, will you be mine, make sure to include from here to eternity.
A final note
Choosing a song is troublesome as we have to be exact in its meaning. Still, we have to note that the reality of a song is the intention of the one having it played. I guess all wedding songs define eternal love. The above are some of the songs you can choose from when you are ready to say I do.
