Wedding planning isn’t always the easiest of tasks. You have to fight for that venue you really want, make sure Aunt Marge and Aunt Cindy don’t sit too close to each other and triple check that the invitations are all typo free. But once the pesky details are all sorted out comes the fun part: selecting your wedding song and first dance. Do you go with a classic playlist or maybe some lesser known numbers that are special to just the two of you?


If you and your bride or groom are struggling to narrow down your options, Spotify wants to help you out. The music streaming company has released a list of the top songs played for both of those important wedding moments. The results are not super shocking. You’ll find tracks by John Legend, Bruno Mars and Elvis. The award for most popular artist goes to Ed Sheeran, who was featured in both categories. Scroll on down to add these to your wedding day queue.
