Looking to take the modern route for your wedding playlist? Here are our top new wedding song picks of 2016.

"Yours" by Russell Dickerson
This sweet, powerful and heartfelt country tune is everything you'd want your first dance song to be. (We also love the acoustic version for the ceremony!) 
Inside look of the lyrics you'll love: "I came to life when I first kissed you, the best me has his arms around you, you make me better than I was before, thank God I'm yours"

"Hold My Hand" by Jess Glynne
With its infectiously upbeat tempo, this jam will no doubt coax everyone onto the dance floor. And if you're planning a confetti drop, this song is the time to let it fly!
Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: "Darling, hold my hand, oh, won't you hold my hand? Cause I don't wanna walk on my own anymore, won't you understand? Cause I don't wanna walk alone"
"Die a Happy Man" by Thomas Rhett
Here's another lovely country song with a message we can obviously relate to: As long as you have each other, you'll be eternally happy. Can you not already here your guests 'coeing' " awww."
Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: "If I never get to see the Northern lights, or if I never get to see the Eiffel Tower at night, oh if all I got is your hand in my hand, baby I could die a happy man"

"Cake by the Ocean" by DNCE
This new pop rock group really knows how to get your wedding guests moving with their catchy bass line and undeniably danceable beat. Though you might have heard that 'cake by the ocean' is a cheeky euphemism, we like to think its definitely about eating mountains of cake - wedding cake, of course!
Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: "Talk to me, baby, I'm going blind from this sweet, sweet craving, I keep on hoping we'll eat cake by the ocean"

"One Call Away" by Charlie Puth
Who hasn't dreamed of their own superhero? Charlie Puth's sweet voice takes this incredibly romantic pop song to new levels.
Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: "I'm only one call away, I'll be there to save the day, superman got nothing on me, I'm only one call away"
"Always" by Chuck Wicks
If you are feeling up to your ears in romance already, theres no better way to celebrate that than with this slow dancing, crazy-passionate song.
Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: "I need you baby, call me crazy, when I know yes I know yes I know, this feeling will stay, always"

"Stand by You" by Rachel Platten
A feel-good anthem, through and through. With its medium tempo and celebratory sound, it bears a touching note of hope and intimacy that is perfect for you wedding reception.
Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: " Cause I'm gonna stand by you, even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through, even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you, love, you're not alone, 'cause I'm gonna stand by you."

"Over and Over Again" by Nathan Sykes featuring Ariana Grande
This dreamy, emotional song reminds us a little of John Legend's "All of Me" (that's how you know it's good!). Brimming with romantic lyrics and a stunning melody, this track belongs at a wedding.
Lyrics you'll love: "So don't ever think I need more, I've got the one to live for, no one else will do, yeah, I'm telling you, just put your heart in my hands."
"Can't Stop The Feeling!" by Justin Timberlake
If you worried about nobody dancing at your wedding, no need! Just pop this feel good song will get all their dancing shoes on. It's cheerful rhythm and JT's soulful voice makes it the best summer hit - we reckon its perfect for your entrance song and of course a spot on the reception playlist. Even the most introverted guests can't stop this feeling! Inside look to the lyrics you'll love: "I got this feeling inside my bones, I
it goes electric, wavey when I turn it on, all through my city, all through my home, we're flying up, no ceiling, when we in our zone."

It's your wedding and the music should reflect you as a couple and signify special memories you've created together. Most brides have nightmares about no-one hitting the dance floor though, so we suggest having a few of these top tracks at the ready, just in case you have to help create some 'vibe' and get your guests dancing shoes moving in the right direction.
