We're Jammin': The Best Beach Wedding Songs


Now that the holidays are over and January is stretching out in front of brides-to-be and newly-engaged ladies like a long ceremony aisle, we're pretty sure that many are dreaming of a beach wedding! All weddings are romantic in their own way, but there's something truly intimate about saying vows barefoot in the sand and sharing a first dance on the waterfront in front of the setting sun. With that in mind, we created a special beach wedding playlist so that you have the perfect soundtrack!

We made sure to include songs that would work equally well for a seaside wedding or for a tropical honeymoon. Bob Marley, the king of island jams, obviously made the cut. We included some of our favorite songs of his, like "Is This Love," "Could You Be Loved," and "One Love." In that vein, it shouldn't be a surprise that The Beach Boys also make several appearances on our playlist, thanks to tunes like "Wouldn't It Be Nice" and "Don't Worry Baby."

From first dance-worthy songs like Ingrid Michaelson's "The Way I Am" to Lionel Richie's reception classic "All Night Long," all of these songs have a hint of fun and sunshine to them that'll make you feel warm inside and out.

Whether you know you're having a beach wedding or if you're in the beginning planning stages and can't stand the chilly temperatures, sit back, press play, and enjoy our Spotify playlist of the best tunes out there.
