Share this post:

Weddings happen once in a lifetime, so it is only natural that brides and grooms see this event as an extra special occasion. On this special day, every moment should be memorable. For that to happen, the event needs pleasant tunes and music. 

Choosing the music for your wedding day can be one of the most fun and least stressful tasks for the special event. That is, until you have to make a list without knowing where to start. Fortunately, we have a list of country music options that you should consider including in your wedding playlist if you love country music.

Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley

Take my hand

Take my whole life too

For I can’t help

Falling in love with you

This song is a classic that never goes out of style. It’s a perfect song for slow dancing too! Even singles would enjoy listening to this music during the ceremony. There are also a lot of versions of this song, so you can choose what you want and ask your cover band to do a particular style and arrangement.

When You Say Nothing at All by Keith Whitley

It’s amazing how you

Can speak right to my heart

Without saying a word

You light up the dark

Another country favorite is this song by Keith Whitley. It can instantly make any heart skip when it’s played. Besides the sweetness on the dance floor, expect your guests to sing along with this one. Its lovely melody and message makes it even more special.

What a Beautiful Day by Chris Cagle

Ooh, we had our ups and downs

All along the way

She had a chance to leave

But chose to stay

What a beautiful day

If you are looking for something upbeat, this song should be on your list. There is no phrase that more accurately describes the day than the title of this song. This little recollection of memories shows how the right partner makes every day beautiful. This music is perfect for pumping up the crowd on the dance floor or as the background music for your wedding film. 

I Cross My Heart by George Strait

From here on after

Let’s stay the way we are right now

And share all the love and laughter

That a lifetime will allow

If you need more slow dance music options, this George Strait classic evokes all the right emotions during the wedding dance. Simply watching the guests have a good time with this sweet music can already put any couple in a good mood. This song is all about the singer’s promise to their partner, making it a perfect piece for a wedding day. 

I Do by Paul Brandt

I rescued you, you rescued me

And we’re right where

We should be

When we’re together

I Do is another song about expressing how much two people care about and love each other. The catchy lyrics, “Baby I will, I am, I can, I have, I do,” say that people in love would do everything for the person they love. It is an excellent piece of music to open or close the reception. 


Music sets the tone at weddings, and when it comes to wedding entertainment, country music is always the perfect genre to capture the romance and soul of the event. The harmony of different string instruments makes it the ideal music type to play at any wedding.
