The 24 best Taylor Swift songs for weddings

To describe Taylor Swift as incredibly popular is quite an understatement – over the years she has become a global juggernaut for her ability to transcend genres and write poetic and evocative songs that speak to her legion of fans. March 2024 marked one year since Swift embarked on her phenomenally successful Eras tour, which earned over $1bn less than halfway through its scheduled run of 152 shows.

Many self-described ‘Swifties’ decide to use Swift’s songs as the soundtrack for their wedding, but even those who don’t consider themselves die-hard fans find that her music – which often speaks eloquently about love and passion, helps set the scene for their special day.

Swift is a highly-prolific artist – having released 14 albums (including re-recordings and editions) over the last 4 years – so there are songs that can be used at every stage of your wedding. Here are our top 24 picks.

Taylor Swift songs for walking down the aisle

These 7 songs are our picks for walking down the aisle because they consist mostly of heartfelt ballads where Swift makes declarations of love (‘Lover’) expresses a fervent belief in fate (‘Invisible String’) and destiny and speaks of new beginnings (‘Everything Has Changed’). Swift often takes inspiration from these aforementioned themes, so the songs below are pretty representative of her entire discography.

Swift’s earlier albums (‘Speak Now’) and her two surprise releases during COVID-19 (‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’) are particularly fitting for walking down the aisle, offering stripped-back and tender moments with country, folk and acoustic music. That said, ‘Lover’ as the name suggests, is one of her most emotive albums, described by Swift herself as ‘a love letter to love’ – and its title track is arguably the most popular Taylor Swift song for walking down the aisle.

  1. Lover (Lover)

Lyric: Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand? / With every guitar string scar on my hand / I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover

  1. Ours (Speak Now)

Lyric: So don’t you worry your pretty, little mind / People throw rocks at things that shine / And life makes love look hard / The stakes are high, the water’s rough / But this love is ours

  1. Daylight (Lover)

Lyric: I don’t wanna think of anything else now that I thought of you / I’ve been sleeping so long in a 20-year dark night / And now I see daylight, I only see daylight

  1. Everything Has Changed (Red)

Lyric: All I know is you held the door / You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours / All I know since yesterday / Is everything has changed

  1. Invisible String (Folklore)

Lyric: And isn’t it just so pretty to think / All along there was some / Invisible string / Tying you to me?

  1. Sweet Nothing (Midnights)

Lyric: They said the end is coming / Everyone’s up to something / I find myself running home to your sweet nothings

  1. Willow (Evermore)

Lyric: I’m like the water when your ship rolled in that night / Rough on the surface but you cut through like a knife

Taylor Swift songs for the first dance

These 8 songs follow on from the previous list in their romantic themes, with most of them either making specific references to marriage (‘Love Story’), soulmates (‘You Belong With Me’) and an undeniable connection between two people in love (‘Today Was a Fairytale).

Whereas the songs we picked for walking down the aisle consist mostly of sweet, intimate ballads – many of the tracks below build to a crescendo that matches the first dance as the pinnacle of celebrations. Some of these songs are classic crowd-pleasers from Swift’s rise to country-pop stardom, but there are also options from her latest album for couples who want to go against the grain and play something more contemporary for their first dance.

  1. You Are In Love (1989)

Lyric: One night he wakes / Strange look on his face / Pauses, then says / You’re my best friend / And you knew what it was / He is in love

  1. Love Story (Fearless)

Lyric: He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring / And said, “Marry me, Juliet / You’ll never have to be alone / I love you and that’s all I really know

  1. Mine (Speak Now)

Lyric: You put your arm around me for the first time / You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter / You are the best thing that’s ever been mine

  1. You Belong with Me (Fearless)

Lyric: I know your favourite songs and you tell me ’bout your dreams / Think I know where you belong, think I know it’s with me

  1. Sparks Fly (Speak Now)

Lyric: Drop everything now / Meet me in the pouring rain / Kiss me on the sidewalk / Take away the pain / Cause I see sparks fly, whenever you smile

  1. Today Was a Fairytale (Fearless)

But can you feel this magic in the air? / It must’ve been the way you kissed me / Fell in love when I saw you standing there / It must’ve been the way, today was a fairytale

  1. So High School (The Tortured Poets Department)

Lyric: I feel so high school every time I look at you / I wanna find you in a crowd just to hide from you

  1. The Alchemy (The Tortured Poets Department)

Lyric: Baby I’m the one to beat / Cause the sign on your heart / Said it’s still reserved for me

Taylor Swift songs for wedding receptions

While romantic ballads are right in Swift’s wheelhouse, she’s no stranger to switching up the tempo and infusing her songs with radio-friendly attitude. We’ve tried to sidestep her breakup anthems since they’re hardly appropriate for weddings! Fortunately, Swift’s back catalogue includes a range of songs with romantic lyrics (‘Starlight’) but have the type of energy that gets people flocking to the dancefloor.

These 9 songs are perfect for your reception – a mixture of pop megahits (‘Style’, ‘Shake it Off’), tracks for Swifties (‘Paper Rings’) and twangy songs for a raucous country-style reception (‘Our Song’) that will have your guests singing and partying all night long. 

  1. Paper Rings (Lover)

Lyric: I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings / Uh huh, that’s right / Darling, you’re the one I want, and / I hate accidents except when we went from friends to this

  1. Cruel Summer (Lover)

Lyric: Killing me slow, out the window / I’m always waiting for you to be waiting below /

Devils roll the dice, angels roll their eyes / What doesn’t kill me makes me want you more

  1. Style (1989)

Lyric: And when we go crashing down, we come back every time / ‘Cause we never go out of style

  1. Shake It Off (1989)

Lyric: But I keep cruisin’ / Can’t stop, won’t stop movin’ / It’s like I got this music in my mind / Sayin’ it’s gonna be alright

  1. Ready For It (Reputation)

Lyric: In the middle of the night, in my dreams / You should see the things we do, baby

  1. Look What You Made Me Do (Reputation)

Lyric: But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time / Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time

  1. Starlight (1989)

Lyric: It was the best night, never would forget how we moved / The whole place / Was dressed to the nines / And we were dancing, dancing / Like we’re made of starlight, starlight

  1. Our Song (Taylor Swift)

Lyric: Our song is the way you laugh / The first date, “Man, I didn’t kiss her, and I should have” / And when I got home, ‘fore I said, “Amen” / Asking God if he could play it again

  1. I’m Only Me When I’m With You (Taylor Swift)

Lyric: You and I are painting pictures in the sky / Sometimes we don’t say a thing / Just listen to the crickets sing / Everything I need is right here by my side.
