Chances are, the soundtrack to your wedding day will include John Legend, Bruno Mars, and a whole lot of Ed Sheeran. Spotify analyzed 400,000 wedding-related playlists (not just the top 10 wedding songs you see all the time) and released the top 50 most popular songs globally to play on a couple's big day – ranging from common wedding songs that are perfect for first dance songs and other wedding songs that will keep guests dancing all night long. The number one pick and best wedding song: the romantic ballad "All of Me" by John Legend, which is an example of great songs to walk down the aisle to or marriage songs for playing throughout the celebration.

Although the list of wedding music favored contemporary hits, a number of classic tunes made the cut, including "You Are The Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne, "At Last" by Etta James, and of course, "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Elvis Presley. Modern artist Bruno Mars was a popular choice, as was Jason Mraz, Beyoncé, and Pharrell Williams, while some country wedding songs as well as classic numbers – like "Endless Love" by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie as well as "Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers – weren't included.

Take a listen to the wedding song ideas below – many of which are songs about marriage and perfect for a non-traditional walk down the aisle – and let us know if you are planning to dance to any of these wedding songs on your big day or choosing these songs to sing at a wedding celebration!
