Ed Sheeran – Perfect
Expect this to be one of the top wedding songs of 2018, particularly when it comes to first dances. According to Jon Smithfield of District DJ in Washington, DC, Ed Sheeran will remain one of the most-played artists for slow dance songs in 2018. We love this song’s utterly romantic feel—particularly ideal for couples who met as children.
Camila Cabello (feat. Young Thug) – Havana
Looking for a song that will draw all of your guests onto the dance floor? This new tune has a Latin beat that’s both sexy and smooth. “Fun, catchy and melodic – this song would be the perfect complement to your dance floor set,” says Nick Spinelli of SCE Event Group in West Long Branch, New Jersey.
Macklemore (feat. Kesha) – Good Old Days
While you may be focusing on the music for your ceremony and reception, don’t forget about your cocktail hour! There are many 2018 wedding songs that are best suited for the pre-reception festivities—tunes that aren’t necessarily the easiest to dance to, but are catchy and celebratory just the same. “The content and meaning of the song is just as amazing as it’s catchy melody, which makes for the perfect complement to your cocktail hour,” says Nick.
Blake Shelton – I’ll Name the Dogs
Country music fans, this is the among the must-play wedding songs for 2018! It’s an obvious choice for a first-dance song (just watch the wedding-themed music video!), and with lyrics like “I’m talkin’ you and me with the same street name, same last name, same everything,” it’s perfect for couples ready to spend the rest of their lives together.
