From lyrics that reminisce about young love like Bryan Adams’ “Summer of ‘69” to songs about burning desire like Alicia Keys “If I Ain’t Got You,” acoustic tracks are essential to play at your wedding. Do you prefer pop stars like Harry Styles or Maroon 5? Or are you more of a rocker-type who prefers artists like Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones? Regardless of your taste, there's a little something for everyone.

Ahead, we've rounded up the best acoustic songs to play at your wedding.
