If you're getting married soon, we can safely guess you can't wait for your bridal shower. It's the day when your closest friends and family gather to celebrate your upcoming nuptials and "shower" you with gifts. Even though this is one of the few wedding events you don't have to plan (phew!), it's still a joyous day in which you can fully partake. Most likely, those planning the shower are so wrapped up in decorations and the games that they might forget an equally important aspect—the playlist. So, we curated a special list of songs you can cue up during the shower to take one thing off of your hosts' plate.

Since bridal showers are traditionally brunches or luncheons with a mixed-age crowd, we included plenty of upbeat, classic love songs that'll get everyone in the mood to toast the bride (you). We also love more up-to-date tunes to play as background music for the festivities. No matter what kind of shower your girls are throwing you—from a girly tea party to a relaxing spa day—these songs are just the ticket for a perfect time.

Sit back, relax, choose your favorites, and get ready to get married with our 70 best bridal shower song picks.
