The month of February, also the time of Valentine’s, is the perfect time you to get married, be proposed to or propose to someone, as it really is the most romantic month of every year!

Not only is Valentine’s a romantic tradition, but it’s also a special occasion which is famous worldwide. If you have already booked your wedding venue or are planning to propose and are looking for some ideas of songs all about LOVE, we have compiled the perfect Valentine’s wedding playlist to get you started….

How does music add to a moment?

We believe that music is the perfect way of adding a romantic atmosphere to any moment that you want to be special – so a celebration, a wedding or an engagement.  Whether it’s background music, whilst your ceremony guests are being seated; a song you have chosen specially for walking down the aisle at your wedding; light instrumental harp music as you sign the Register or a crowd-pleasing and uplifting tune as you and your partner exit the ceremony as newlyweds!

Harp music is also perfect for someone about to propose, perhaps over a candlelit dinner for two – music really can ‘make’ the moment special.

Why have we picked these pieces of music for Valentines?

We have picked these pieces of music because they are the perfect way of saying to your partner that you love them. These songs sound perfect as instrumental arrangements, or as voice or just backing music. The wonderful ladies at Chiqas are amazing at creating the perfect moment with a song.

What are the top ten alternative romantic songs for a Valentine’s Wedding?

Here are our top ten favourite alternative romantic songs for a Valentine’s Wedding or cheeky proposal (in no particular order):

Candy by Paolo Nutini

Admittedly this is sweetest song for a slow dance. Capturing the truth of what it means to be truly in love. This duet perfectly sums up married life and what being married couple brings.

Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) by Edison Lighthouse

Whilst you might be shocked this classic is trending again, we aren’t! It makes for the most perfect romantic song for that special moment. Beautiful lyrics of a man in love and following his love wherever she may go is the sign of true love.

Gold Dust Woman – Fleetwood Mac

A bride on her wedding day must play this song! Whether you choose to have it in the background of your wedding breakfast or even to walk down the aisle too, it is the most empowering song you can play on your wedding day.

Best Day of My Life – American Authors

We love this song as an aisle exit! Being a happy, upbeat song to celebrate the fact you just said, ‘I do,’ means you can kick off married life with a boom!

Toothpaste Kisses by The Maccabees

This song is simply a cute soundtrack to either your first dance or as background to your wedding breakfast or drinks reception. A laidback duet affair that is fairly nostalgic always guarantees a smile on your guest’s faces.

Adore You by Harry Styles

A nod to the more modern era, a wedding isn’t complete without a Harry Styles song nowadays. With a fun beat, Adore You is a winner for your first dance, making sure the rest of your guests will want to get up and join in!

Girls and Boys in Love – The Rumble Strips

It’s often hard to put into words how much you really love your partner. This song puts this beautifully in a musical message and tells them how much you care for them. It’s a perfect choice to be sung, or played acoustically as an instrumental track, for the signing of the register.

Just Engaged? Congratulations, here is what you should do next…

The One by Kodaline

This song is for ‘the one’ in your life that fits you perfectly and you can’t imagine being without it.  It describes the joy they feel, knowing that they have their partner in their life.
