View Full Version : Songs about Getting Married

hey gang! Help me out with a project I'm working on. My friend is proposing to his girlfriend soon and he's got a party planned for the next day to celebrate, so I'm going to make them a mix CD of (at least kind of good, or if they're bad, bad enough that they're funny) songs about getting engaged or married. It's to be titled: "SO YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED. Here are some songs to make you feel good about that decision."

My list so far:
Bruno Mars - Marry You
The Muppets - Somebody's Getting Married
Weezer - If You're Wondering If I Want You To feat. Sara Bareilles
Frank Sinatra - Love and Marriage
Colbie Caillat - I Do
The Proclaimers - Let's Get Married

Please help add to my list! Would prefer if the songs had married/marry/marriage/whatever in the title.

Thanks guys!!

Only one that comes to mind right away is "Chapel of Love" by the Dixie Cups. Well, that and Billy Idol's White Wedding but that's mostly satirical, so I have no idea if that's anything close to what you're looking for.

How about this one? "Marry Me" by Train. A pop hit from just a couple years ago.
