When it comes to wedding music, few genres can create the same ambiance and atmosphere as jazz. This timeless style of music is perfect for setting the mood on your big day, whether you’re looking for something romantic, sophisticated, or fun!
If you’re planning on having a live jazz band at your wedding, you’ll need to make sure you have a great playlist. Here are five essential jazz songs that should be on your list!
- “Ain’t Misbehavin’” by Fats Waller
This song is the perfect blend of fun and sophistication, making it ideal for a wedding reception. Of course, every live jazz band knows this should be a necessary part of any wedding playlist!
- “All of Me” by Billie Holiday
This classic love song is another must-have for any wedding playlist. Why do we say that? It’s catchy, tells a love story, and is something that reflects what the big day is all about!
- “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra
You can’t have a jazz list without the legendary Frank Sinatra! This timeless standard is perfect for a first dance or a father-daughter dance.
- “Georgia on My Mind” by Ray Charles
Ray Charles is another legendary artist that deserves to be on this list. His classic song works with any wedding. So, whether you’re celebrating an intimate affair or something grand, we recommend this classic.
- “The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra
We had to include another Frank Sinatra song. It’s fitting we end the list with this song because it speaks about love, making it perfect for a wedding reception or any other special occasion.
