Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections

I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginnin’
Even when I lose, I’m winnin’

4. Speechless by Dan + Shay

Key lyrics:

Starin’ at you, standin’ there, in that dress
What it’s doin’ to me, ain’t a secret
‘Cause watchin’ you is all that I can do
And I’m speechless

You already know that you’re my weakness
After all this time I’m just as nervous
Every time you walk into the room
I’m speechless

5. This Is It by Scotty McCreery

Key lyrics:

This is it, this is now, this is what I been talkin’ ’bout
Lookin’ out, can’t you see forever
You take my hand, just take it in
This is a moment we won’t forget
On top of the world, here, together
If there ever was a time for a perfect kiss, this is it

6. Marry Me by Train

Key lyrics:

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you
And you’re beautiful
Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way

7. Take My Hand (The Wedding Song) by Emily Hackett

Key lyrics:

I’ve never really know what love is
But whatever it is, I feel it in your kiss
You waltzed in like somebody planned it all
I feel right where I belong
My knees are weak
My heart is strong

So gimme your word
And I’ll give you all I’ve got
No we don’t have much
But it sure feels like a lot

So, take my heart and take my hand
Take my heart and take my hand
Take my heart and take my hand again, and again
Right where we stand

8. I Choose You by Ryann Darling

Key lyrics:

And I’d choose you
In a hundred lifetimes, I’d choose you
In a hundred worlds, I’d find you

And I’d say, “I do”
For the rest of my life
With all that I have, I do
And I will
When the sky is falling
I promise you, I’m all in
No turning back
And every day, every moment
Every breath you take
I choose you

9. When God Made You by NewSong

Key lyrics:

Its always been a mystery to me,
How two hearts can come together,
And love can last forever.
Now that I have found you I believe,
That a miracle has come when God sends the perfect one.
Now gone are all my questions about why,
And i’ve never been so sure of anything in my life

10. Better Today by Coffey Anderson

Key lyrics:

To see your face
To hear your voice
And oh to touch you
Is a dream come true
So I am standing here
With my hand held out
Knowing that your love will never fade
I stand amazed without a doubt
And I want to hear your voice in the morning when I rise
