If you are a couple in Northwest Arkansas or Southern Missouri, you might be planning a country vibe themed wedding. Or, maybe you are a country girl or guy at heart. Either way, your country music wedding reception playlist will definitely need some thought and we are here for it. We have been involved with several country music themed weddings lately here in NWA and most if not all of them have been our favorites of the year. There is just something about line dances, slow waltzes, cowboy boots, lace, and barn wood that scream NWA wedding. We have had so much fun curating set lists for each of these wonderful couples and we thought it might be a good idea to share some of them with you.
What makes a country wedding, country, anyway?
Decor has to be on point. Think barnwood, #fixerupper, and maybe a little pastel color and lace.
Cowgirl or cowboy boots with the wedding dress or nah? Here's an idea for your country wedding digs.
White on white with a little bit of weathering. White dress and leather boots and hats are the thing. We love it.
Finally, the country wedding music playlist has to tell the story of your love of the genre and country music wedding vibe. Who doesn't love Keith Urban and Brooks and Dunn blaring from the DJ booth? We do!
Here are a few suggestions for getting the dance floor popping with two stepping and line dances as well as the perfect slow dance songs for your country wedding.
#1 Country wedding slow dance request: Speechless by Dan and Shay
You can't go wrong with this perfect country slow dance song. This one is a heart melter. We love Dan and Shay and they are some of the best crooners in the business. Every time this song is played at a wedding in NWA, people love it. Here’s a couple of lyrics that say it all.
Staring at you, standing there in that dress
What it's doing to me, ain't a secret
#2. Country wedding Two Step request: I Need You by Tim McGraw featuring Faith Hill
Everybody loves the country music power couple. This song will give the dance floor what they want! Who doesn’t want the king and queen of country music played at their wedding. We love it!
#3 Country wedding line dance request: Chattahoochie by Alan Jackson
This one is always well received and is the perfect song to engage multi generations. Alan Jackson never gets old. Let’s dance! I remember waking up every Saturday in high school ('I'm 41 this year) and blasting this song during the summer. My folks loved it, my little sister loved it, it's a winner and is a pure country song to the core.
Whether you are looking to light up the dance floor with fast songs or melt hearts with slow songs your Ozark Mix DJ can keep the night moving with this perfect list of country songs for your wedding. We found a ton of country music wedding songs here as well.
