Combining meaningful images and with the right song amplifies the story and emotion of photography.  This is the power of a wedding slideshow!  Some wedding slideshows can be upbeat, happy and fun, while others can be more somber and romantic.  But with whatever type of slideshow you choose to create, choosing the perfect song is an important step in the process.  Choosing a song that doesn’t match the images can lead to an unimpressive, uninteresting slideshow.  And choosing  too many songs can lead to a bored, disinterested audience.  To help, here are suggestions on songs to use for your personal, non commercial wedding slideshow.



There is no implication in this article that using these songs on a commercial or personal website is legal; and we take no official stance on the matter. There are dozens of websites that allow you to buy licensed music from independent artists for this type of use, and you’ll have to understand the risks and legal issues involved before placing any audio content on your website.

We’re simply providing an opinion of songs that fit the themes of weddings (love, romance, etc). Whether our readers are brides deciding on a first dance song, couples choosing songs for their wedding website, or photographers creating a slideshow for their couple, we hope you gain some sort of value from this list of great music.

In this article, we are going to cover the song choices, with future articles discussing the best software to use, including options like Animoto, Showit Web, SmartSHOW 3D, and Smartslides (by Pixellu).
