If your wedding is coming up this year, we've got the ultimate playlist of perfect songs to walk down the aisle to.

There are so many potential options when it comes to finding the right song to start your big day.

We've put together a playlist of ten songs that we think are totally ideal for a bride or groom's entrance.

> Playlist: Top 10 Wedding First Dance Songs

  1. James Vincent McMorrow - 'Higher Love'

    James Vincent Mc Morrow - Higher Love

    Originally sung by Steve Winwood, Irish singer James Vincent McMorrow released a cover of 'Higher Love' back in 2011 and it's just as beautiful now.

  2. Chris Isaak - 'Wicked Game'

    It's one of the most iconic love songs of all-time. There have been hundreds of covers of Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game' but we think the original might be the best.

  3. Clean Bandit - 'Rather Be' ft. Jess Glynne

    Clean Bandit and Jess Glynne's collaboration 'Rather Be' is one of the biggest songs of the last decade and the orchestral arrangement makes a lovely wedding number.

  4. Sigur Ros - 'Hoppipolla'

    Sigur Rós - Hoppípolla (Official Video)

    The lyrics are fairly nonsensical when you translate them from Icelandic to English but we think the dreamy melody makes it a great choice to walk down the aisle to.

  5. The Temper Trap - 'Sweet Disposition'

    'Sweet Disposition' by Australian indie band The Temper Trap became a huge hit after it was included in the soundtrack for rom-com 500 Days of Summer.

  6. Vance Joy - 'Riptide'

  7. Tom Odell - 'Another Love'

    Tom Odell - Another Love (Official Video)

    This 2012 classic is another song that has been covered countless times but we're not sure anyone quite does it justice quite like Tom Odell.

  8. The Beach Boys - 'God Only Knows'

    This song by The Beach Boys has brought The Beatles' Paul McCartney to tears in the past so it's bound to set a few people of if you choose it for your wedding.

  9. American Authors - 'Best Day of My Life'

    American Authors - Best Day Of My Life

    Your wedding day is going to be the best day of your life... so why not choose this song by American Authors that nicely sums it up in the lyrics.
