Thirty Great Songs in All Styles to Sing at a Wedding

Love is in the air! Before you know it, June will be here- the busiest month of all for weddings.

If you’re a singer, you KNOW how fun (and let’s face it: lucrative!) it can be if you offer wedding gigs.
Sometimes, the happy couple knows exactly what they want as far as the song goes. But often, they are certainly open to suggestions from the professional! 

In order to pick the ideal wedding song, first you should consider the couple. If they’re young and hip, a song sung by Josh Groban probably won’t fly! Likewise, if it’s an older couple they may want an old standard. Give them a couple of ideas! Another important thing to consider is whether the event is super formal, or more casual. A beautiful classical song is ideal for a formal wedding in a church, but you may want a more current hit for a backyard wedding with a more laid back vibe. 

The final thing to consider is…YOU! When selecting any song, you have to think about your voice type, vocal ability, and styles that you sing comfortably in. A Handel aria would be out of a pop singer’s ability, and likewise- an opera singer may sound completely awkward singing the Beatles. 

No worries! I've got you covered. Here is a list of thirty fantastic wedding songs to choose from, in a variety of styles to suit any singer. Even a few duets!

If you are having a hard time deciding on a song, a really wonderful source is your voice teacher.
They are likely to have lots of helpful suggestions as far as repertoire goes since they really know your voice. Not only that, but he or she can help you prepare for the big event so you feel confident and ready to go and wow! When you are asked to perform at a wedding, it’s very important to arrive prepared, properly warmed up, and with a big smile of course!
