Proposing Marriage? Choose the Right Song to Set the Mood


Falling in love and wanting to spend the rest of your life with someone special is something that should be celebrated. Proposing marriage in a way that creates a memory to last a lifetime requires careful planning and execution. The perfect song playing in the background as you ‘pop the question’ can help to set the right mood, but choosing the right song can be difficult. The following list of some all-time favorites for a marriage proposal will help you get the answer you seek. Please note that they are listed in no particular order of preference. After all, songs are as personal as the marriage proposal itself.

I Swear by All4One There is a reason that this song comes up at number one so many times when people are asked the best song to have playing at a marriage proposal. The words are so perfectly indicative of what the ideal marriage will be, and can say everything you might struggle to say yourself. It has been covered by many great artists and if you choose to play this song when proposing to your loved one you may find a version that you like better than this one.

From This Moment on by Shania Twain and Bryan White “I will love you for as long as I live, from this moment on” may well be the most heart-warming promise your soon-to-be marriage partner could ever hear. The combination of these two beautiful voices makes this a very special song that says so much in just a few short minutes. Marriage is intended to be forever, as is the love you feel for your special someone, and playing this song as you ask the time-honored question is a very romantic gesture.

Marry Me by Jason Derulo This song is a great choice for those who want the song to say the words for them, “Will you marry me?” The circumstances will need to be just right to make sure the person being proposed to realizes that the song is the proposal itself. It may be a good idea to do the old-fashioned but still undeniably romantic act of getting down on bended knee as the song plays.

The Wedding Song by Demis Roussos This is a song that may not be well known but has a strong and powerful message. While the title suggests that this is a song that should be played at a wedding ceremony it is equally perfect for a proposal. Being told “I will give up my life for you” is about as strong a testament to a person’s love that anyone can hear, and if that doesn’t elicit a “yes” in response to a marriage proposal then what will?

I Do It for You by Bryan Adams “Everything I do, I do it for you”. Marriage is about giving of oneself and this song clearly tells your loved one that you are dedicated to making them happy and to working on your marriage to make it the best relationship of your lives. Just the mere sound of Bryan Adam’s voice is romantic in itself and when he sings those magical words that sum up how you feel about the person you want to spend the rest of your life loving, your proposal is bound to meet with runaway success.

Songs are a great way to tell someone how you really feel whether you are great with words and can express your deepest feelings easily or whether getting the words out is a struggle. These are just a few of some of the greatest romantic marriage proposal songs that have ever been written. No matter which one you choose it is sure to be a winner!
