Spring is here, which means wedding season is just around the corner!
Everyone knows that planning a wedding is difficult and tedious – so here’s our little wedding gift to you -a kickstart to your playlist at the reception.
Here are 12 songs from the 2000s that are sure to bring back memories!
“Make You Feel My Love” – Adele – 2008
This may be Adele‘s only song that isn’t about heartbreak – and that’s probably because it’s Billy Joel’s song. Regardless, it’s a great track and Adele definitely does it justice. It’s not the lyrics in this one, it’s the WAY Adele sings them. Definitely a song that you want to sway to with someone in your arms.
“You’re Beautiful” – James Blunt – 2004
A little bit sad but a lotta bit romantic. James Blunt does a great job of expressing an unattainable love. This song could pass for a first dance but it might be more appropriate if a live band covers it while you’re going through the buffet line.
“Fallin'” – Alicia Keys – 2001
It certainly wouldn’t be a ’00s playlist without a little R&B soul, foot tapping music. Who better for that than Alicia? This one is about the struggle and pain of love but damn, it’s so good and so true. Just don’t play it as your first dance or you’ll probably have a bad first night. “What DO you MEAN ‘falling OUT?'”
“You And Me” – Lifehouse – 2005
Now this could easily be a first dance song. It’s so perfectly romantic and sweet that any couple getting married would be foolish to leave it off the list. With lyrics like, “I just can’t keep my eyes off of you,” you can’t really go wrong with playing this at one of the happiest, most romantic days of your life.
“Everything” – Michael Buble – 2007
Everything about Michael Buble is perfect. He makes it seem like he’s singing right to you. This one is upbeat and fun but it’s also so incredibly sweet. This should be on the karaoke list after everyone has had a few drinks from the open bar (every wedding has to have an open bar)!
“I’m Yours” – Jason Mraz – 2008
Everyone knows the words to this hit and it will surely be a crowd-pleaser if you play it as a couple’s song. Or it could just be fun for everyone to dance to. Even the kids now Jason Mraz, so when you need a break here’s the song that everyone will like.
“The Way I Am” – Ingrid Michaelson – 2007
This is a fun but incredibly romantic song. Ingrid Michaelson has a way of singing lyrics in a tone other than how they’re written – which makes all of her stuff irresistible. This one though, a wedding song for sure. When she says, “I’d buy you rogaine,” how could you pass this one up?
“Crazy In Love” – Beyonce – 2003
No wedding is complete without the Queen Bee. She’s romantic but sexual, dirty but sweet and she ties it all into her singing. This one is absolutely not a first dance song… unless you want to have one of those crazy surprise choreographed entrance dance routines – in which case this is a great song to annoy your friends to.
“Halo” – Beyonce – 2009
Bey’s a little more tame in this one; Beyonce sings about love and having her “angel” next to her. I don’t know much about wedding nights, but I think this could be the opening track to the dancing that happens in the wedding suite after the party!
“Love Story” – Taylor Swift – 2009
I think we’re all a little bit past this song but it is irrefutably a wedding song. It’s fun, it has attitude but it also has romance. Not a first dance kind of song but I wouldn’t be too surprised if you heard this pop up a couple times this season. Plus, once everyone has a couple drinks I can guarantee you they would all sing along.
“The Luckiest” – Ben Folds – 2001
Ben Folds is sweet but he’s also hilarious and vulgar. This song though, romance through and through. He sings about how he is the luckiest person in the world to have his significant other. You can’t not like this song… unless you’re single. Don’t listen to it, you’ll melt.
“I Could Not Ask For More” – Sara Evans – 2000
This song is pretty much what everyone dreams about when they think of loving their soul mate. It’s emotional and lovey-dovey. A must have for any wedding party.
