  1. ‘I’ll Always Remember Us This Way’ By Lady Gaga (Released: 2018)

Lady Gaga is a musical powerhouse and deserves all the praise she got for her songs in the movie ‘A Star Is Born,’ including this song. 

The beautiful lyrics highlight the best part of the narrator’s relationship with their partner. When everything ends, that’s the version the narrator will remember, the beauty of their love.

  1. ‘Just The Way You Are’ By Bruno Mars (Released: 2010)

Bruno Mars has written and sung some of the most incredibly romantic songs. ‘Just The Way You Are’ is all about praising and complementing the physical beauty of the narrator’s partner.  

There is nothing more enjoyable than having a partner who showers you with a song of praise. This song is perfect for a wedding reception. 



Narrowing down love songs to play at your wedding can be quite hectic as there are so many options. 

Music is such an important part of the wedding, and all the songs need to be selected for the first dance, walking the aisle, father-daughter dance, introduction of the wedding party, etc.

However, nothing beats the enjoyment of live music. You can check out UK Live Entertainment to hire talented bands like the Take That Tribute Band. These performers are incredibly talented and know how to put up a show.
