we’re not huge country fans but our first dance is God Gave Me You πŸ™‚  country definitely does it right with heart-felt songs.

I love country music and we’re playing it at our wedding too! πŸ™‚  I have a big long playlist for the reception that I won’t bore you with, but we’re doing “One Friend” by Dan Seals for our first dance (it’s “our song”).  I have no idea what we’re doing for any of the ceremony pieces though.  I’ll keep an eye on this thread since I could use some ideas too. πŸ™‚

P.S. All your songs are great, but I’m terrible at figuring our what should go where.  Sorry I don’t have more ideas πŸ™

FH and I are country fans but we know most of our guests aren’t, so we are using a country song for our first dance but not much else. We went to a wedding last summer that had a lot of country songs on their playlist but not a lot of country music fan guests, so their dance floor wasn’t as frequented as I imagine it would have been if they had played more of other genres of music. So we opted to limit the country music at our wedding since we know the majority of our guests aren’t big fans.

We’re going to be heavy on the Kenny Chesney, some of the love songs and of course we demanded the DJ play “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.”  We had to convince him we’re serious.

Oh and Taylor Swift is on the DO NOT PLAY list.  Along with Jimmy Buffett.

We love country music but not many of our guests do so we’re keeping our country music to a minimum, but we are having some necessary songs! “I do” by Paul Brandt is our first song, “Don’t blink” for Bride/son and Groom/daughter dance along with a couple must plays like “He’s mine” for my son and “Wild Flower” for my daughter. Think a couple other songs are going to be “Country girl, shake it for me” and “5150” that just have an awesome beat so everyone can just enjoy dancing.

We are having Tracy Bird’s Keeper of the Stars being sung by a friend during the ceremony. I’m pretty sure that’s the moment when I will lose it and start crying like a baby lol

All of our ceremony songs will be country. 

Processional- long trip alone by Dierks Bentley

During signing ofcertificate- make you feel my love- Garth Brooks

Recessional- I like Would you Go with me by Josh Turner. But I am not 100% crazy over that one so I will be keeping an eye on this thread to see if anyone else has a good idea!

I’m southern and it’s HILARIOUS that my yankee fiance has taken a real liking to country music since moving to the south. Of course I was raised on it, and I listen to a lot of different things other than that, but his job down here provided him with a radio all day so that is what he chose. I love hearing him try to sing the songs in his New York accent, they are almost always completely unrecognizeable LOL. I want to incorporate this into our wedding somehow, but most of our families and friends are not into it. I’m planning on using a mixing program to remix some country songs with club beats so that everyone could get into it.

So you’re talking wedding and the reception? You’re having a dance ?

A friend did their first dance to Hunter Hayes “Wanted”  beautiful.

I like all the ones listed above, our first dance is “At Last” by Etta James ( probably Beyonce singing though)

Some on our list for the dance …  

My wish …  Rascal Flatts  (bride and son dance) 

Glass … Thompson Square

Our Kind of Love …   Lady Antebellum

You …   Chris Young

I melt …   Rascal Flatts

This Ole Boy …  Craig Morgan  ( very cute dance song)

It’s Just that Way …   Alan Jackson

He Is Good …  Carrie Underwood … BEAUTIFUL

I Wanna Put You In A Song …  or Fly With Me .. by Keith Urban

AND … not everything has to be a “love song” necessarily.

How about That Thing by Fast Ryde .. and Chicken Fry by Zac Brown band….  All Your Life by The Band Perry.


Ours is going to be outdoors, in May , a country vintage relaxed wedding and reception … for the dancing – I know not every one will dance or wants to listen to ALL country. So we’re doing a mix with some blues/slow rock and  DEFINITELY making DJ request cards!!!
