Best Festive Songs for a Christmas Wedding

One of the best things about a Christmas wedding is the music. The world is full of wonderful Christmas music that will work beautifully in a wedding. Here are our favorite festive songs for a Christmas wedding.


The below songs can be used in different ways and at different parts of the reception and ceremony. There are also lots of versions of these songs – you can use the one that speaks to you the most!


Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas



This beautiful song has versions by Judy Garland, Franks Sinatra and Sam Smith so you have plenty to choose from. The song is touching and it would work well as a First Dance song. Alternatively, play it right at the end of the evening to give everyone a good send off.


Santa Baby


Michael Bubble’s version of this song is perfect for a cheeky moment on the dance floor. This can be a great song to play right at the beginning of dancing or you could include it to your cake cutting ceremony.


It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year



This song is such a beautiful pick to a Christmas wedding because of its touching lyrics. You could have the song played – even as an instrumental version – at the start of your wedding ceremony. It could also play in the background as guests gather to greet the married couple right at the start of the reception.


Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

This funky song is another cool song to play when the guests are hitting the dance floor. Its upbeat nature also makes it a fun song to use during the Parent/Child dances for a bit of a different take on this tradition.


I’ll Be Home for Christmas



The Bing Crosby classic is a must-have for a Christmas wedding playlist. The slow song has touching lyrics and it’ll add a lot of warmth to your wedding reception. This song is another beautiful pick for a First Dance.


Snowflakes of Love


Toni Braxton’s sweet Christmas song will be a lovely addition to a Christmas wedding. You could use it as a First Dance song or you might have it used as an entrance song.


All I Want for Christmas Is You



Of course, you can’t have a Christmas wedding without having this Christmas classic played at the reception. There are plenty of versions on the song and you can be playful on which one to pick.
