It’s safe to say that Ed Sheeran’s music is all about love and emotions, whether it is in a romantic way or in a family-centric point of view. It’s no surprise that some of his chart-topping songs come up on top when it comes to 2016 wedding song choice. Since his songs are so popular, we’ve decided to come up with a list of songs which will be perfect for your wedding.
No surprises here, this obviously has to be on the list. Apart from the very obvious music video which suggest that this is appropriately a wedding song, it also made it on Spotify’s List of Top Wedding Songs. All the dance couples out there might want to try recreating this dance and when better to show it off, than during your wedding!
Lyrics we love: “Darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70.
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23.”
Perfect for: First dance, Reception.
The slow tempo drew us into this song. As the song goes, it untangles more of how he is feeling and what better way to express you love than through a song. We imagine couples slow-dancing to this song and even brides walking down the aisle to this song. When the pastor announces you may kiss the bride, the very appropriate lyrics of this songs could be playing in the background.
Lyrics we love: “And your heart’s against my chest, your lips pressed to my neck.
I’m falling for your eyes, but they don’t know me yet.”
Perfect for: First dance, Grand walk-in.
Everything about this song is romantic, right from the very first line to the melody and beat. We feel that this song is so appropriate for all segments of a wedding! It sets the tone of the event nicely and creates a loving atmosphere.
Lyrics we love: “Should this be the last thing I see.
I want you to know it’s enough for me.
‘Cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need.”
Perfect for: First dance, Reception, Grand Walk-in
If you’re looking for something more raw yet romantic, this is for you. With very minimal instrumental music in the background, it highlights the lyrics perfectly. We don’t see why this shouldn’t be part of your wedding!
Lyrics we love: “Take my hand and my
Heart and soul, I will.
Only have these eyes for you.”
Perfect for: First dance.
This song is literally PERFECT! All of you who watched The Fault In Our Stars will be able to appreciate this song a little more. We see this as the perfect song for couples who have been doing long distance, I’m sure you’ll be able to relate with the lyrics which speaks for itself.
Lyrics we love: “So open your eyes and see.
The way our horizons meet.
And all of the lights will lead.
Into the night with me.”

Embrace the start of your new chapter in life with this song which is spot on about that new start you’re about to have. What better way to start your life together as a married couple by having a song that complements the occasion! While this song is raw and beautiful on its own, play around and speed it up a little if you’re not digging the pace of this song.
Lyrics we love: “This is the start of something beautiful.
This is the start of something new.
You are the one who’d make me lose it all.
You are the start of something new, ooh.”
Perfect for: First dance, Grand walk-in, Reception
This sentimental song wasn’t meant for weddings but we see this would be a good pick for couples who used to do long distance or couples who rarely see each other due to work commitments.
Lyrics we love: “We keep this love in a photograph.
We made these memories for ourselves.
Where our eyes are never closing.
Hearts are never broken.
Times forever frozen still.”
Perfect for: First dance, Slide show presentation.
