Hey there, Champ! Heard you’re getting hitched soon, so we just want to send a massive congratulations your way!

If you chose the last option, then we totally get it! As massive Sheerios ourselves, ol’ pal Eddy here has written tons of wedding-ready songs, and we can already imagine his voice as the background of your special day!

And since we’re just as excited as you, we went ahead and compiled the best Ed Sheeran wedding songs for your wedding playlist!

To make things easier, we also categorized Ed’s music with the following: romantic, slow and sentimental, upbeat and poppy, and reflective and nostalgic. 

So, let’s get started on that playlist, yes?

Romantic Ed Sheeran Wedding Songs

When it comes to modern, romantic love songs, Ed Sheeran’s catalog is easily the cream of the crop. For example, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t heard of “Perfect” or “Thinking Out Loud.” Our personal favorite goes to “All of the Stars,” however, if only for the bright dash of youthful hope it can bring to your wedding day. Okay? Okay (high-five if you get that reference!) 

  1. “Perfect” (2017)
  2. “Thinking Out Loud” (2014)
  3. “Tenerife Sea” (2014)
  4. “Photograph” (2015)
  5. “How Would You Feel (Paean)” (2017)
  6. “Give Me Love” (2011)
  7. “Kiss Me” (2011)
  8. “All of the Stars” (2014)
  9. “One” (2014)
  10. “Hearts Don’t Break Around Here” (2017)

Slow and Sentimental Ed Sheeran Wedding Songs

In our opinion, weddings aren’t complete with a slow number or two, so we have to commend our pal Ed for serving us plenty of great options here too. Take “This” for example – which has the lyrics “this is the start of something beautiful, this is the start of something new.” Perfect for a slow dance with your beloved, in our opinion. 

  1. “Dive” (2017)
  2. “Supermarket Flowers” (2017)
  3. “Small Bump” (2011)
  4. “Happier” (2017)
  5. “Nancy Mulligan” (2017)
  6. “This” (2011)
  7. “Even My Dad Does Sometimes” (2014)
  8. “Bloodstream” (2014)
  9. “Afire Love” (2014)
  10. “Save Myself” (2017)

Upbeat And Poppy Ed Sheeran Wedding Songs

If you want something hype for the big day, then look no further than Ed’s catalogue of upbeat and poppy hits. Most of these hits, for example, are playful and light-hearted, making them perfect for the wedding party. We personally recommend “Galway Girl” as our go-to Ed Sheeran dance tune! 

  1. “Castle on the Hill” (2017)
  2. “Galway Girl” (2017)
  3. “Sing” (2014)
  4. “Barcelona” (2017)
  5. “Bibia Be Ye Ye” (2017)
  6. “Don’t” (2014)
  7. “You Need Me, I Don’t Need You” (2011)
  8. “Blow” (with Bruno Mars & Chris Stapleton) (2019)
  9. “Sing” (2014)
  10. “What Do I Know?” (2017)

Reflective And Nostalgic Ed Sheeran Wedding Songs

Looking to add a touch of reflection and nostalgia as you look back on the time you spent together as a couple? Then Ed’s catalogue has a helpful serving of tunes for you. Take “Photograph” for example – which is a hopeful song about memories of the moments we’ve shared with people. Cue the waterfall of tears!  

  1. “The A Team” (2011)
  2. “Lego House” (2011)
  3. “Drunk” (2011)
  4. “I See Fire” (2013)
  5. “Autumn Leaves” (2011)
  6. “The Man” (2014)
  7. “Grade 8” (2011)
  8. “Sunburn” (2010)
  9. “Photograph” (2015)
  10. “I’m a Mess” (2014)

Tips For Choosing The Best Ed Sheeran Wedding Songs

  • Consider Your Personal Connection: Start by choosing songs that have a personal connection to you and your partner. Maybe it’s an Ed Sheeran song you both listened to right during the release day? Or maybe it’s one of his albums that you listened to a lot of times together while hanging out? Either way, these personal connections you have with the songs will make for more memorable moments.
  • Match the Mood to the Moment: Of course, different parts of your wedding day will have different vibes. For example, a crowd pleaser like “Perfect” is… dare we say it, perfect for the bridal walk, while slow jams like “This” are great for the first dance.

  • Test the Danceability: If you’re planning to have a dance party at your wedding, consider how danceable the songs are. Upbeat and poppy songs like “Castle on the Hill” or “Galway Girl” are great for getting feet on the dance floor! 

  • Balance Familiar Hits with Hidden Gems: While popular hits like “Perfect” and “Thinking Out Loud” will surely have everyone clapping along, don’t be afraid to go deep into Ed’s discography for lesser-known gems. You might even end up finding your next favorite Ed Sheeran song! 

  • Consult Your DJ: Teamwork makes the dream (wedding) work, so make sure you consult with your DJ as well! As the musical expert behind the booth, your DJ is sure to have valuable insight on how to structure your Ed Sheeran playlist for maximum impact.

  • Mix Up the Tempo: While slow and romantic songs are perfect for certain moments, you should also mix up the party by throwing in upbeat and lively tunes to keep the crowd’s energy high.

  • Rehearse Your First Dance: Whether your wedding playlist is filled with Ed Sheeran hits or not, make sure you rehearse the first dance beforehand! This will not only help with any nerves but also ensure that you feel comfortable and confident during the dance. You can even get some dancing lessons together if you’re up for it!

Things To Avoid When Choosing Ed Sheeran Wedding Songs

  • Ignoring the Lyrics: When choosing Ed Sheeran wedding songs, make sure you pay attention to the lyrics. After all, who wants to dance to a song that’s actually about heartbreak?? (we don’t!)

  • Neglecting the Acoustic Version: Ed Sheeran often releases acoustic versions of his songs. While the original versions may be more upbeat, these acoustic renditions can offer a more intimate and romantic vibe. Perfect for getting cozy on the dance floor!
  • Overcomplicating the Playlist: While variety is essential, try not to overcomplicate your playlist with too many genres or moods. Instead, ask your DJ to create a more cohesive playlist that will balance the overall experience.

  • Leaving Song Selection to the Last Minute: Choosing the perfect wedding songs takes time and consideration, so don’t leave it as a last minute task! Instead, start early and go through our picks *wink wink*. Then, listen to different options, and pick ones that best suit your love story!

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
