The Best Black Wedding Songs

It can be very difficult choosing wedding songs, especially when there are so many timeless classics to choose from! But the real question is, how do you go about choosing which songs are the one for you and your mate?

Some wedding songs are found in the midst of dating, songs of significance to their family or a parent's wedding song, but primarily they are songs that the future bride and groom both feel is a true demonstration of their special love.

Here is our curated collection of Black wedding songs in honor of Black History Month for different parts of the Ceremony.

* This collection was created by three black women in the Laine London team who have all been married within the last ten years. This list is filled with a mix of classic R&B, modern love songs and tunes that will make you wanna get up and dance. Enjoy!
