The past decade has seen some gorgeous love songs hit the charts and, although the old classics are great, there are some sensational new releases that make a stunning addition to any wedding soundtrack.


At Alaska Professional Entertainment, we think that great music is an absolutely key part of any wedding celebration. We’ve provided the DJ’s, entertainment and the music to countless wedding celebrations, so we reckon we’ve got a pretty good sense of what songs leave the whole room of guests feeling loved-up and teary eyed. After much deliberation, we’ve come up with our list of (what we think are) the top 20 modern songs that are absolute musts to include in your wedding soundtrack. 


  1. Jason Mraz – I’m Yours
  2. Jack Johnson – Better Together
  3. Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are
  4. Childish Gambino – Have Some Love
  5. John Legend – All of Me
  6. Rihanna – Love on the Brain
  7. Taylor Swift – Love Story
  8. Ed Sheeran – Perfect 
  9. Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling
  10. Beyonce and Jay-Z – Drunk in Love

  13. Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
  14. Selena Gomez and The Scene – Love You Like a Love Song
