We love hearing from wedding bands about which songs they absolutely love to play. It’s such a great way to not only discover new wedding songs you might have never heard of before, but it often reminds us of tunes that we used to LOVE but haven’t heard in forever (or songs that we can never remember the name of!).

Downbeat LA –home to some of our favorite LA wedding bands such as AMFM, Gold Standard, and Soultones–shared their must-have wedding songs with us. From the first dance to the last dance (and everything in between) we’re loving these old and new picks for your wedding.

Are any of your wedding songs on this list? Be sure to check out Woman Getting Married’s top picks for unique first dance songs, country love songs, and father/daughter songs that won’t make you cringe!
