Find the perfect rock songs for your wedding

When it comes to music everyone has different tastes and your wedding day is no different.

Some couples will be happy to be led by the chart and pop music, whilst others may want to embrace their own music tastes, including rock.

Rock music doesn’t always feel like it should tie in with a romantic wedding vibe, however, any music type can work as a part of a wedding, you just need to make some careful choices about the songs that you pick.

So, how can you work rock songs into your wedding? Let’s take a look at some of the best wedding rock songs out there.

You Really Got Me by The Kinks

Sometimes it is the classic tunes that are the best, and this is definitely true when it comes to rock songs.

We love this track, not only because it is an absolute tune, but it is also great fun to dance to, especially later on in the night when all those aunties and uncles are going to be ready to bust out some of their best moves.

White Wedding by Billy Idol

Okay, so this may be a little on the cheesy side, but what better time to bust out this 80’s track then at an actual white wedding?

We don’t think there is ever going to be one!

Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns and Roses

When this song comes on at a wedding disco, you may find yourself truly shocked by how many closet GnR fans there are out there.

Suddenly, with just a few opening bars of this amazing rock tune, you will have a packed dancefloor with a variety of people bringing out their very best air guitar moves and sliding across the floor on their knees.

Nothing Else Matters by Metallica

Surprisingly, rock music can even be worked into the slow songs in weddings, and still have a romantic vibe about them.

There are a couple of great songs that you can pick from, however, if you are a fan of Metallica then we really rate this song.

Not only does it have a pretty lovely meaning to it, but it is also epically cool too and is sure to bring even the most rock hating members of your family up onto the dancefloor for a sway.

Livin’ On A Prayer by Bon Jovi

Some people would say that it simply isn’t a wedding unless this song is played.

A crowd pleasing, foot stomping, singing your heart out track, this will have your guests arm in arm jumping around and maybe even bringing out a power fist move or two!

A true rock track that is sure to full the dancefloor.

As you can see, there are a wealth of ways that you can bring a touch of rock to your wedding day.

Ultimately, you need to remember that whilst you want to make sure that your guests have a good time and they spend the night dancing, that your wedding, even down to the music, is a true reflection of you both as a couple.

This will make sure that you have the very best night to remember.
