We love Jewel’s song “I Do” because instead of her just waxing sentimental about forever love, she has a healthy perspective on the ups-and downs of life. Truly an inspiration for any young couple to remember, “so if you will, I will stop saying I won’t/and start saying I do.”

Obviously not the most romantic of songs, but this song from fellow Brit, Billy Idol, is the perfect party jam. Hopefully everyone will be dancing and repeating joyously “It’s a nice day for a white wedding!”

Arguably one of the best Dixie Chicks songs in terms of hilarious lyrics, this song would be a total contradiction to what would probably go down at a decadent, probably frivolous royal wedding. The Queen might not like lyrics like “baby’s on it’s way /say I do and kiss me quick /’cause baby’s on it’s way,” but we would for the laugh out loud story.

Probably one of the most popular wedding songs out there, Bee Gee’s song “Wedding Day” doesn’t get old decades after its début. Hopefully just like the union of Kate and Prince William.

This is a slightly cheesy little reggae-tinged ditty by UB40, but we like the fun Caribbean vibe that will surely bring a little sunshine to a perhaps gloomy British spring wedding.

The Avett Brothers and their song “January Wedding” is not quite àpropos seasonally but lyrics like “she’s talkin’ to me with her voice /down so low I barely hear her/But I know what she’s sayin’/I understand because my heart and hers are the same,” are right all year-long.


[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Queen[/lastfm]-“The Wedding March”

Imagine the mega metaphor stomping down the aisle to Queen’s “The Wedding March?” That would be quite the showstopping entrance by the undoubtedly beautifully decked out Kate Middleton.

Nicky Lachey’s marriage with Jessica Simpson also went through the public wringer. It might not have worked out, but it did inspire this beautiful song, which we are sure is being played at weddings to this day.


[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm]-“I Wanna Marry You”

The Boss lets us know why he would be proud to marry his “little girl” with lyrics like “I wear my love darlin’, without shame /I’d be proud if you would wear my name.” We hope Prince William feels the same way.


[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lucinda Williams[/lastfm]-“Plan To Marry”

Our favorite wedding song of the list, Lucinda Williams runs over all the reasons why people shouldn’t fall in love and get married, reasons we are sure that Prince Henry is well acquainted with. But, in the end, Lucina Williams says, we get married and fall in love because “love, love is my sword/Love is a weapon, love is a lesson/And we, we are the conquerors/We are the soldiers, we are the lovers/That’s why we fall in love/That’s why we believe in love, that’s why we marry.”


[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Al Green[/lastfm]-“Let’s Get Married”

In this song, Al Green wants to settle down because he’s tired of being a player. The sentiments aren’t as romantic as they could be, but with Al Green’s smooth, lush voice everything ends up sounds like a good idea.
