Country Wedding Songs Planning List
These must-have country wedding songs should round your playlist nicely on that big day. The first dances are the most cherished memories from every wedding. There's far too much emotion attached to the new couple's first dance as man and wife to let some DJ decide which song will forever be called "our song." Likewise for the moment mother gives up her son and father says goodbye to his daughter. Fortunately, country artists have written more than enough perfect songs to capture the magic in those precious wedding moments. Hold on to these lists of wedding songs, because you just may need to revisit some of them when your kids get married.
It's the most important song you'll hear on your wedding day because it will forever attach you to your sweetie. This list of the top first dance wedding songs carries a good mix of classic and modern country hits. Bounce back and forth between songs by Anne Murray, George Strait, Lonestar and Brad Paisley, and find out which country trio from the last 10 years has the top wedding song
A one-hit-wonder from 2006 tops this list of the best father daughter wedding songs for dad and his daughter to dance to on the day that he gives her away. Tim McGraw's song from the 'My Friend Flicka' soundtrack is also included, as are hits by Gary Allan and the Raybon Brothers. Finding a song that will turn dad into a puddle of tears is one way to ensure everyone will remember the big day. These 10 wedding songs are perfect for any country girl's wedding, but be careful not to slip in more than one. It is supposed to be a happy occasion after all, even for your dad.
Finding the perfect song to play for mother and son at a wedding is a little trickier, as there just aren't many songs written from a woman's perspective to her boy. Fortunately, Lee Ann Womack's 'I Hope You Dance' works for both father/daughter and mother/son as does Rascal Flatts' 'I Wish.' "Angels" are a popular theme used by Alabama and Randy Travis on this list of can't miss wedding songs. However, the top song on the list comes from an artist who isn't well-remembered for his country work.
Anniversary songs tell the story you and your sweetheart have shared from your wedding day to the more relaxing moments when the kids are gone and the house is quiet. Alan Jackson's 'Remember When' is a popular pick, but it got beat out by one song on this list of top anniversary songs. Brad Paisley and Reba McEntire also show up on this list that rounds out our series of suggestions for wedding songs. It's hard to argue that when it comes to love, nobody sings it better that country artists.
