It’s our favourite time of the year again. Yes we love Christmas, but do you know what we adore even more than that? A winter wedding! Weddings during Christmas just feel a little extra magical (as does everything else at this time of the year) so if you’re thinking about tying the knot next December, then we highly recommend. But, no festive wedding is complete without the perfect playlist so seeing as it’s December 1st, we thought we’d start the month by sharing some of our favourite songs with you.
P.S These are a must for your playlist if you’re having a winter wonderland wedding.
In no particular order…
Mariah Carey – All I Want For Christmas Is You
Released in 1994, Christmas would not be complete without Mariah Carey’s classic. It needs no introduction and is loved by everyone year after year. A sure hit on the dance floor.
Sam Smith – Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Originally sung by Frank Sinatra, Sam Smith’s rendition of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas is stunningly romantic. Perfect for that first dance.
Chris Rea – Driving Home For Christmas
The perfect song to end the night’s celebrations on, Chris Rea’s Driving Home For Christmas is a personal favourite, and will have you and all your guests singing along at the end of the night.
Jon Bon Jovi – Santa Claus Is Coming To Town/Run Run Rudolph
For all those couple who love a little bit of rock Bon Jovi’s mash up of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town/Run Run Rudolph is brilliant and full of energy.
Sleeping At Last – Silent Night
Christmas would not be the same without a favourite Christmas carol. Sleeping At Last’s cover of the popular 1818 carol by Franz Xaver is simply beautiful, just take a listen.
Darlene Love – All Alone On Christmas
Soundtrack from Home Alone 2, Darlene Love’s festive tune is fun and upbeat.
Michael Bublé – White Christmas
Michael Bublé’s Christmas album is filled with so many great covers so it was difficult to narrow it down to just one song. Nevertheless, this rendition of Irving Berlin’s 1842 song is perfect for bringing that old-fashioned Christmas setting into your wedding day.
The Ronettes – Sleigh Ride
Not the originally but the most popular recording of Sleigh Ride, The Ronette bring great energy to the dancefloor. Since then there have been many renditions of the song so there will be a version for everyone.
Daryl Hall & John Oates – Jingle Bell Rock
Get all your guests on the dance floor with this Christmas classic. The upbeat and tinkling chimes will get everyone shimmying at the end of the night.
