Top Wedding Songs for 2022

We all have a list of favorite songs we want to hear at our wedding. But sometimes, you may not have enough hits off the top of your head to fill up the entire evening. If you’re worried about picking the perfect songs for your big day—don’t worry, we’re here to help.

Let’s take a look at some of the top wedding songs for 2022:

Justin Bieber (ft. Chance the Rapper), “Holy”

A wonderful love song that starts out slow and includes a slick hip-hop verse from Chance the Rapper, this one has a little bit of everything. Love him or hate him, you can't deny that Bieber has an amazing voice. After all, this song even mentions running up to the altar.

Ed Sheeran, “Leave Your Life”

Ed Sheeran has been heard at countless weddings for probably close to a decade now. And he’s still bringing out the romantic hits. This one is perfect for a couple’s first dance as they make that magical commitment to share their lives together and never leave their side.

Nick Jonas, “Death Do Us Part”

Written for his wife, Priyanka Chopra, this is another beautiful first dance song or a tender note to end your evening with. As he sings out, “from a friend to a love to my wife,” you’ll get some tears with this one.

Zack Brown Band, “Old Love Song”

If country music is more your style, then you’ve definitely heard of the Zack Brown Band. This hit mixes fun, romance, and a little bit of twang to bring couples closer together. It also offers a nice reprieve from some of the classic pop hits.

Taylor Swift, “Love Story”

As Taylor Swift has remastered many of her old classics, you’ve got to hear her new version of this romantic ballad. There’s nothing like the Romeo and Juliet comparison to remind couples of how difficult it can be to find true love—and then, how special it is when you’ve found it.

Dua Lipa, “Love Again”

For an instant spark of energy at your wedding, simply throw on some Dua Lipa. This quickly emerging pop sensation adds energy and excitement with each of her tracks. “Love Again” particularly works well for receptions and is sure to get people out of their seats.

Passenger, “The Way That I Love You"

With such a unique, soulful voice, Passenger has quickly carved out a distinct niche in the pop music scene. This band has plenty of ballads to bring people together. This one in particular is ideal for the wedding scene as the lyrics perfectly paint the scene of why you’re together.

Benefits of Hiring a Wedding DJ

Now that you know some of the best weddings songs for 2022, it’s time to figure out who’s going to play them. And when it’s your wedding, you don’t want to simply settle for a friend or cousin with a laptop or iPod. Hiring a professional wedding DJ will ensure that your friends and family are entertained throughout the entire evening. They also come equipped with the top audio and video equipment to be found in the industry. They also know how to keep up with the tempo so they know when to slow it down for romance and when to pick up the pace again to get people back on the dance floor.

But playing music is just the beginning of what these professionals can offer for you and your big day. A professional wedding DJ can keep your guests entertained throughout the evening and help you organize and transition throughout the day. For example, a wedding DJ can make announcements to alert guests when cocktail hour is over or play a high-energy song to send the signal that it’s time to dance. You’d be amazed at what a simple song can do when it comes to setting the mood.
