Wedding Slideshow Songs

The wedding slideshow songs that you choose to play during the various parts of the slideshow can really make or break it.

Think of your wedding slideshow as a real movie, with a real soundtrack.

What song would fit best for showing the groom as a child and growing up?

Was he a naughty boy?

Or always the gentleman and your knight in shining armor?

And the bride? Was she a tomboy from the day she was born or a total lady? Choose wedding slideshow songs that describes each one as best as possible.

Wedding Slideshow Songs

Generally you will need about 2 - 3 songs, depending on which kind of slideshow you are making. For a slideshow of your wedding day you will need about 2 nice love songs - perhaps your wedding song?

For a slideshow of you two growing up and meeting each other, you will need 3 songs. One for the groom growing up, one for the bride growing up, and a love song for the photos showing the two of you together.

If the songs are a little long you can always fade them out at an appropriate point. Whatever you do, don't just fill all the music space for the sake of filling it. Use only the photos that really tell the story.

Below are some examples of good wedding slideshow songs to enhance your montage perfectly. Just scroll down the page for ideas for both the bride, the groom, unisex songs as well as great songs for the couple's life together:



The Bride Growing Up

The wedding slideshow song describing the bride growing up should fit the personality of the bride as best as possible.

Was and is she still known for her big brown eyes? Then perhaps Van Morrison's Brown-Eyed Girl would be perfect.

If she always posed for photos, then why not consider Roxette's The Look?

If none of the wedding slideshow songs above really suit what you were looking for, then also have a look at the songs suggested for the Daddy Daughter dance. Many of those songs have appropriate lyrics that talk about a daughter growing up.

The Groom Growing Up

Now choose a great song for the photos of the groom as a boy. Again, choose a generic song or listen carefully to the lyrics to match the photos or the personality of the groom.

Has he always been a rebel? How about Bad to the Bone? 

Was he a bit of a ladies's man before he met you? Maybe Chicks Dig It is a good choice.
