Looking for the perfect Elvis songs for your wedding? While there are plenty of love songs in Elvis Presley’s discography, you’ll want to choose tunes with suitable lyrics for your big day. Whether you’re planning a retro wedding and looking for old school tracks, eloping in Las Vegas and need on-theme ceremony music, or perhaps you just love the idea of playing a classic Elvis song for your first dance, we‘ve rounded up our top picks for your wedding (and five to avoid!).

Want to make your song selections even more memorable? Surprise your guests and hire an Elvis impersonator to kick off the dance portion of the evening. Have him serenade you and your VIPs for the first few special dances. “The Wonder of You“ is a great father-daughter wedding dance song,  “Memories” is the best pick for a mother-son dance and “All Shook Up” will get all of your wedding guests up on their feet. Follow it up with a guest appearance by “The King of Rock 'n' Roll” in your photobooth and your wedding will be one for the books.

Here are the best Elvis songs for your wedding (and some to avoid).

  • I Can't Help Falling in Love
