There’s nothing like the perfect slow song to make your wedding guests feel the love. Sure, upbeat tracks will get everyone on the dance floor, but a perfectly timed slow jam is guaranteed to add real heart and soul to your big day. Plus, after guests have jumped around to a few upbeat hits and raised their heart rates, they'll appreciate cooling down with a ballad before resuming the high-energy fun.

When picking slow songs, it’s important to include a little something for every generation. Often, it’s the classic ballads that inspire older guests to get up and dance, so songs from artists like Etta James, Frank Sinatra, and The Temptations are always a safe bet. As the reception is nearing its end, it’s fun to sprinkle in a few top hits from artists like Mariah Carey, *NSYNC, and Celine Dion to inspire romance. It truly doesn't get much sweeter than seeing the people you love dancing together to the songs that move you the most.
