1. Body Like a Back Road – Sam Hunt.

This sweet tune may be just what the doctor ordered for cheeky newlyweds.  For a first dance, or for the garter throw, this one will have your guests grinning knowingly.

2. Something Just Like This – The Chainsmokers and Coldplay.

This is the ideal tune for couples who’ve found the love of their life.  You don’t need a superhero, or fairy tale bliss, because you’ve found something just like this!  Romantic as all get out.

3. Sweet Creature – Harry Styles.

Gently wrapped in a simple acoustic guitar motif, you’ll find the perfect first dance in this tender offering.  Simple and fresh, it reflects the type of love you share.

4. Heatstroke – Calvin Harris, ft. Young Thug, Pharrell Williams and Ariana Grande.

A call to ‘have a good time’ might be the perfect entrance song to set the tone for the evening.  This tune is a license to party, promising to get your guests in the mood to groove.

5. Shape of You – Ed Sheeran.

An international sensation, this is just one more eloquent ode to love eternal by the sensitive Mr. Sheeran.  Come on.  You didn’t think you were going to have a wedding without him – did you?

6. Helium – Sia.

Is there anything more uplifting than endless love?  We can’t think of anything and this song is the ideal statement about how much the two of you need one other.  The perfect first dance song.

7. Outside the Lines – Misterwives.

Every love is special.  Every love is different, but when you color outside the lines, it’s truly a supernatural gift.  Get the dance floor fired up with this anthemic ode to quirky love.

8. Perfect – Ed Sheeran.

Let’s face it, Ed Sheeran is the reigning King of Wedding Songs.  And what could be more to the point than this tune, which rhapsodizes a love that lasts forever?

9. The Cure – Lady GaGa.

They say true love conquers all and this song acknowledges its healing powers.  Imminently danceable as most of this pop diva’s offerings are, everyone will want to move to this uplifting tune.

10. Despacito – Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, ft. Justin Bieber.

Whether the Beeb irritates you or not, you can’t deny the chart-topping ubiquity of this international hit.  With its readily recognizable melody and rhythms, you know the dance floor will be on fire.
