If you are a big musical theatre fan like myself, you might be eager to incorporate several of your favorite Broadway love songs for your Broadway wedding playlist.

I’ve created a playlist of 15 Broadway love songs that you can easily include in your wedding playlist for the ceremony, during your dinner, use for your first dances, even during your reception, or as exit music as the couple leaves.

12 Broadway Love Songs For Your Wedding Playlist

#1. Next Ten Minutes (The Last 5 Years)

For those that don’t know the musical, the love story is told in chronological and reverse chronological order. The man experiences their love story in chronological order and the woman experiences the story in reverse chronological order. “Next Ten Minutes” is the love song in the middle of the musical when the two romantic leads meet in the middle of their timeline. The man proposes marriage.

#2. It Takes Two (Into the Woods)

“It Takes Two” is a charming duet between a married couple who have rediscovered each other. In the motion picture, James Corden and Emily Blunt played the couple.

#3. We Go Together (Grease)

When you think of Grease, you probably immediately picture John Travolta in a leather jacket. Right? The musical is packed with fun music for a party but “We Go Together” is definitely a great song to go out on.

#4. Seeing is Believing (Aspects of Love)

As anyone who has read my blog knows, I LOVE Michael Ball’s gorgeous voice. He is my all-time favorite musical theatre artist. And I honestly believe Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love is one of the most beautiful and romantic musicals EVER. This is Rose and Alex’s song on the train at the beginning of their relationship.

#5. As Long As You’re Mine (Wicked)

#6. Sun and Moon (Miss Saigon)

Sun and Moon is the beautiful romantic duet at the beginning of Kim and Chris’ relationship after he asks to see her again. The song is both bittersweet and hopeful in nature.

#7. Before and After You/One Second and A Million Miles (Bridges of Madison County)

The song is sung by leading lady Francesca (played by Kelli O’Hara on Broadway) as she contemplates Robert’s invitation to run away with him (leaving behind her family). So yes, the topic is somewhat morbid and dark for a wedding but the lyrics and melody make for a beautiful option.

#8. Falling Slowly (Once)

“Falling Slowly” is the first song that our two romantic leads perform together.

TRIVIA: Falling Slowly was originally heard in the movie, Once, that the musical was based on.

#9. ‘Til There Was You (The Music Man)

TRIVIA: Hugh Jackman is set to perform The Music Man on Broadway opposite Sutton Foster in 2021. And they’re very lucky to have Shirley Jones mentoring them in preparation for their opening night.

#10. Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful? (Cinderella)

TRIVIA: General Hospital fans, did you know that Stuart Damon (Alan Quartermaine) was The Prince in the 1965 TV production?

#11. All I Ask of You (The Phantom of the Opera)

Everyone knows this song! It’s a classic. And my all-time favorite performance was by Claire Moore and Michael Ball. Talk about perfect casting. My two absolute favorite musical theatre performers.

#12. Love To Me (The Light in the Piazza)

When our heroine is having a panic attack of sorts, the groom sings this beautiful ballad of his love for her. GLEE’s Matthew Morrison originated the role of Fabrizio. Aaron Lazar played Fabrizio in the PBS Great Performances’ production.

My THREE FAVORITE Broadway Love Songs for Your Wedding Playlist:

#13. Aimer (Romeo et Juliette)

This is the song that the company sings as Romeo and Juliette marry in the Act One finale. Sadly the original version does not seem to be on Amazon at the time.

#14 – Du bist meine Welt (“I Was Born to Love You”) (Rudolf)

This song is the show’s dramatic finale when Rudolf and Mary declare their love for one another and commit to and act upon a suicide pact.

The original stars, Drew Sarich and Lisa Antoni (Mary Poppins Returns – German Soundtrack), recorded the English version of the song available on Amazon.


#15 – Don’t Ever Stop Saying “I Love Me” (A Catered Affair)

The young bride-to-be asks for her groom’s assurance of his love and affection in this sweet ballad.

    I want to get married again just so I can dance down the aisle to “We Go Together”. Maybe we’ll renew our vows in Las Vegas and dress up like Danny and Sandy for fun. Great list!
