The right song choice is just as equally important as the flowers or the wedding rings themselves.
Couples who love country music have a wide selection of songs to choose from for their wedding day. If you happen to be putting up a playlist for your big day, check out this list of country wedding songs we put up for you:
5. I Love the Way You Love Me – John Michael Montgomery
Love truly makes you appreciate every little detail about your partner, from how he sleeps at night or how she cries while watching romantic movies. Now that you are about to spend your life together you will surely get to see more of these said details on a daily basis. “I Love the Way You Love Me” weaves these seemingly inconsequential thoughts into a song worthy of the wedding playlist. The Academy of Country Music crowned the song as 1993’s Song of the Year and was also part of John Michael Montgomery’s triple Platinum album Life’s a Dance. Irish boyband Boyzone released their pop rendition of the song five years later and those who are not familiar with country music might think that this is the original version.
4. Inside Your Heaven – Carrie Underwood
“Inside Your Heavcountry-wedding-songs-inside-your-heavenen” starts off slow with only the vocals and a piano. It then builds up to an explosive chorus and the momentum does not slow down as it powerfully resonates the feeling of everything falling in the right place with the right person. American Idol season 4 winner Carrie Underwood sang this song during the finale while fellow contestant and runner-up Bo Bice gave his own rendition as well. Her debut album Some Hearts included the song as a bonus track. “Inside Your Heaven” won Underwood two awards during the 2005 Billboard Music Awards and peaked at number one on the Hot 100 and Canadian Singles charts. Some critics believe that this song catapulted Underwood’s career despite the fact that it did not fare quite well in the country charts.
3. I Do – Paul Brandt
Paul Brandt pledges eternal love in his highly successful song “I Do” which is part of the triple Platinum debut album Calm Before the Storm. The song’s lyrics and the last line of its chorus clearly express the assurance of true love that is without doubt and will never fade. “I Do” peaked at number 2 in the Hot Country Songs chart of Billboard while it sat at the number 1 spot of RPM magazine’s Canada’s Country Tracks.
2. When I Said I Do – Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black

1. Bless the Broken Road – Rascal Flatts
