One of the most important elements of a wonderful wedding is the music, and for that, we prepared the ultimate list of the best lesbian weddings songs.
Whether we’re talking about songs to walk down the aisle, songs for the first dance or reception songs, you will find everything you need.
Walk Down The Aisle Songs
The moment when the brides walk down the aisle is one of the most emotional ones, so you need to find just the right song! After all, you’ll only do this once!
Take a look at these 15 Beautiful Lesbian Wedding Songs To Walk Down The Aisle for inspiration! Our personal favorite? Hard to choose, but Can’t Take My Eyes Off You by Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons is an incredible choice!
First Dance Songs
The first dance can be thought about as the new beginning, and you need the perfect music to express that. Like your “walking down the aisle” song, you only get one first dance, so make sure you choose something that really speaks to both of your hearts!

Whitney Houston’s song is one of the best to get everything started. It will set the mood for everyone, and the guests will have a wonderful time!
2. Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars – “Uptown Funk”
Uptown Funk is one of the best songs ever created, and considered by some to be the ultimate party anthem. This being said, it’s understandable if you’d want to choose it for your wedding reception.
3. Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams – “Get Lucky”
Talking about party songs, Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’s “Get Lucky” will definitely set an amazing mood. Just take a look at the lyrics:
We’ve come too far to give up who we are
So let’s raise the bar and our cups to the stars.

This is one of the best wedding songs, and perfect for a reception. It’s all about preparing to spend the rest of your life with that special someone that’s going to make everything incredible!
5. Jason Mraz – “I’m Yours”
Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” is the ultimate love statement, and perfect as a wedding reception song. All this because you don’t have to wait. It’s happening now!
6. Hall&Oats – “You Make My Dreams”
“You make my dreams” is one of those songs that make you wanna dance, and it’s perfect for a wedding reception. It’s beautiful, and if you pay attention to the lyrics, you’ll understand everything.
Me you me and you
I’ve been waiting for waiting for you girl
All my life
You make my dreams come true
7. Aerosmith – “I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing”
In my opinion, Aerosmith’s “I don’t wanna miss a thing” is the most romantic song in the world. It’s beautiful, romantic, and the lyrics will melt even the coldest person.
Don’t want to close my eyes
I don’t want to fall asleep
‘Cause I’d miss you baby
And I don’t want to miss a thing
‘Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I’d still miss you baby
And I don’t want to miss a thing.
8. Eric Clapton – “Wonderful Tonight”
Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” is the standard when it comes to weddings, and it’s amazing for any part of it. It’s a wonderful way to show appreciation towards the person next to you, and you may want to play it at a lesbian wedding reception.
These should definitely keep your reception (and your guests) hopping along! Before we close, we do have a few tips for DJs preparing for their first gay or lesbian wedding,
Tips for DJs preparing for their first same-sex wedding
First, don’t feel like every single song has to be written by, for, or about same-sex couples in love. There are so many wonderful gender-neutral love songs out there, too! These make beautiful ideas for slow songs.
That said, make sure you choose plenty of upbeat songs that everyone can dance too! Along with those shared above, there are plenty of non-love songs to fill the evening. I’m betting you have plenty of those on tap already, so go ahead and use the songs that you know everyone loves to dance to!
Remember, the couple hired you for a reason. They like your style! So, aside from choosing some beautiful lesbian wedding songs to include in the mix, don’t worry too much about filling the night with LGBTQ-specific songs, unless they ask you to do so.
Creating a playlist for a lesbian wedding can seem hard at first sight, but all these songs will definitely help you create something amazing.
