3.     Little Things- One Direction. For obvious reasons some people might just count this song right out, but if you can forget it’s One Direction singing it for a minute, this is actually a fabulous choice for a wedding song. Fun fact: it was written by aforementioned singer Ed Sheeran, making it that much better.

These are definitely some romantic songs, but I tend to like the more classic choices much better.
