Christian Wedding Songs and Love Songs

Weddings are full of love, life, and promises. Music plays a special part in the day, and the quest for the perfect Christian wedding song is one that many brides go on. The songs on this list will help make the atmosphere and resulting memories from your special day be filled with joy and love.

For those couples who are already married or haven't gotten there yet, these Christian love songs are also perfect for anniversaries or special, romantic occasions.

You can be married for 20 years and can still remember the days before you met your spouse—and the dramatic changes in your life afterward. That day changed Matthew West for the better.

From the song "The Day Before You"

I had all but given up on finding the one
that I could fall into
On the day before you
I was ready to settle for less than love
and not much more
There was no such thing as a dream come true
But that was on the day before you

Steven Curtis Chapman has won 58 Dove awards and sold more than 11 million albums; the song "You've Got Me" comes from the gold-selling "All About Love."

From "You've Got Me"

On a Monday
On a Tuesday
On a Wednesday
All the way around til Sunday
You've always got me
On the good days
And the bad days
And the mad days
The happy and the sad days
You've got me every day of my life

What more do you need for a romantic tune than one that Jimmy Needham wrote to propose to his fiancee?

From "Unfailing Love (Kelly's Song)"

He tells a story of a King coming in glory and He is
And that same Man who devised that plan united ours with His
And so hand in hand we will walk with Him as our two become as one
And all the promises He promises to us He promises will never be undone.

Every bride wants a perfect wedding day. Natalie Grant's song "Days Like These" asks for that perfect moment of pure love to be lived over and over again.

From the song:

Days like these—they don't get any better
Let this be for always and forever
Every minute is so perfectly
Just the way that it was meant to be
Days like these—so graceful that I'm falling
On my knees and thanking God for all the
Little things that make me wanna say
How I wish I had a million days like these

In a conversation to a friend, Jonny Diaz said, “I might not get her, but thank God I got her,” and a much-loved song was born.

From "Thank God I Got Her":

She's everything I didn't know I needed
The perfect fit, the missing piece
I might not get her
But thank God I got her

Artists often have their first album be self-titled; Bebo Norman waited until his sixth to have his songs stand only behind his name, in 2008. This song is the third track. 

From "Not Living in the In-Between"

Well I can't be anything I'm not
You get what you see
But I'm gonna give you everything I got
I'm not living in the in-between

Across the Sky was a joint project for singer/songwriter solo artists Ben Kolarcik and Justin Unger from Nashville. On their only album, the self-titled work from 2003, they share a love song for your first true love.  

From "First Love Song"

This is my very first love song
I'm gonna sing it for you
I know that this is gonna last
No matter how the change may come I'll have you.

From the platinum-selling Michael W. Smith ​album "Go West Young Man" (1993) comes the heartfelt "For You."

From the song:

Cause when you're up against the wall
You know I'll be here for you, for you
When you rise and when you fall
I'll always be here for you, for you 

"Waltz for Jennifer" appears on FFH's album "Ready to Fly," from 2003. The group began in 1993 as an a capella group Four For Harmony, and they still create and record music in Irvine, California. 

From the song:

We belong together, you and me
Holding on tight like lock and key
Going strong the way this love should be—a fantasy
And I'm so glad that God made me for you and you for me

"Once in a Lifetime" is the title track to Grammy-winning artist Smokie Norful's 2012 album. He calls his music "urban inspirational."

From the song ...

Once in a lifetime you find a love you can't let go
Once in a lifetime you find the purpose to live on
Once in a lifetime you find the meaning of your dreams
And once in a lifetime you find the one who gives life meaning

Songwriter and pianist Jim Brickman has collaborated with a wide range of artists, from Michael W. Smith (as on this tune, "Love of My Life") to Lady Antebellum, Kenny Loggins, Carly Simon, American Idol alum Matt Giraud, Pam Tillis, Herb Alpert—and the list goes on.

From the song:

You are the love of my life
And I'm so glad you found me
You are the love of my life
Baby put your arms around me

The moving song "I Found Love (Cindy's Song)" is about finding your other half, and isn't that just what weddings are all about?

From the song:

When I found you i found my fate in your arms
When i found you i found no cause for alarm
When I found you i knew this love was a gift from above
When i found love...

Newsong founder Eddie Carswell wrote "When God Made You" for his daughter's wedding, using letters between her and her fiance for inspiration. The song is now a wedding staple and features Natalie Grant.

From the song:

I wonder what God was thinking when He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true, when God made you
He must have been thinking about me

Gospel runs in the blood of CeCe Winans; her father was a singer, and that genre was all the music allowed to be played in her home growing up. She knows a thing or two about singing it, too. 

From "More Than What I Wanted"

You are the miracle I needed so bad
You're more than what I wanted
Everything I never had

Steven Curtis Chapman shares a promise to always be there in this song. He said it wasn't hard to write and went quickly; he just kept thinking of scenarios where he'd be there for his wife.

From "I Will Be Here":

And just as sure as seasons are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
So I...I will be here
We'll be together
I will be here
