“I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz

Chords in this song: Am, C, D7, F, G

Jason Mraz’ “I’m Yours” expresses the longing and yearning one feels for that special someone, and its laid-back, island vibe makes it perfect for ukulele adaptations.

It’s not a hard song to sing, either, but if the original key gives you trouble, you can always try it in another one. Mraz is a skilled vocalist – often emulated but rarely if ever duplicated.

“Marry Me” by Train

Chords in this song: Am7, Bb, C, Csus4, G

This gentle, acoustic number is heartfelt and romantic (the music video kind of gives off creepy vibes though).

What matters most, obviously, is the title of the song as well as its overall sentiment, as it has fast become a wedding favorite.

For ukulele players, this tune represents a good opportunity to work on your fingerpicking.

“Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones

Chords in this song: Am7, C, Em, F, G

This Norah Jones waltz has got a bit of a faux jazz vibe. Could be perfect for the first dance.

Thematically, it’s all about wanting to love someone forever, making it a good choice for weddings in general.

And you only need to be able to play a few chords to master it.

“You’re The Inspiration” by Chicago

Chords in this song: C, G, Am, F, A#, E, D, A, B, G#m7, Dsus4, Gsus4, F#, C#

“You’re The Inspiration” is an 80s romantic classic, heard in many commercials, TV shows, and films, including Deadpool.

Lyrically and musically, you can’t help but hear wedding bells in this tune, and it is often requested by couples.

You might need to get a little creative with the arrangement, but it should be a fun one to learn regardless.

“From This Moment On” by Shania Twain

Chords in this song: G, D, C, Am, Em, A, E, Bm, F#m, B, F#, C#m

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect song for a wedding, and apparently, millions of people agree.

Shania Twain’s “From This Moment On,” tones down her standard country-pop leanings in favor of a more standard, dynamic ballad. Smart choice because it made this song an instant wedding classic.

Just watch out for those modulations, and you should do fine.

“All Of Me” by John Legend

Chords in this song: Em, C, G, D, Am

John Legend’s “All Of Me” has basically been inescapable since its release in 2013 and is still in high rotation on the radio, in malls, on playlists, and more. It’s quite simply the perfect ukulele wedding song.

It’s a simple (if dramatic) ballad, to be sure, and lyrically it tells the story of a head over heels “I can’t even think straight” romance. But it’s sure to go over well at a wedding.

If you’re planning to sing it, just watch out for those falsetto notes. They can be a tad tricky.

“All I Want Is You” by U2

Chords in this song: A, D, F#m

Another great ukulele wedding song. Sometimes simple says it best, and from start to finish, U2’s “All I Want Is You” is built on layers of simplicity, especially musically.

The general sentiment of the song seems to be that, regardless of promises broken, what matters most is love.

There are only a few chords in the song, but that also leaves room for interpretation.

“Thank You For Loving Me” by Bon Jovi

Chords in this song: D, G, Bm, A, E, Em, C, A7

Bon Jovi’s “Thank You For Loving Me” is another wedding favorite. In my view, this power ballad is kind of like Bon Jovi’s answer to Aerosmith’s “Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” which is also a good song for romantic occasions.

Emulating this song’s dynamics on a lone uke might prove a little challenging. The trick would be to focus on the vocals.

“Endless Love” by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross

Chords in this song: C, F, G, B, Am, Em, Em7, Dm7, E, Am7, F7, F#

“Endless Love” might not be new, but it has certainly stood the test of time, and it’s wedding appropriate too.

What makes it most memorable is that it’s a duet between Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.

There is an opportunity to create a fun ukulele arrangement with this tune, so take advantage of the video and tab to come up with your own version.

“Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” by Elton John

Chords in this song: F, C, Dm, G, Am, D, A, Bm, Em

Elton John is a bit of a favorite when it comes to weddings. His songs are sophisticated, lyrically, and musically, and they tend to draw out that mature, complex, adult feeling called love.

This association with The Lion King is quite strong, though, so consult with the bride before adding this one to your set list.

Elton John’s “Your Song” is another popular choice, and a good alternative overall.

“Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Elvis Presley

Chords in this song: C, Em, Am, F, G, B7, A7, Dm

When all else fails, there’s always Elvis “The King” Presley.

“Can’t Help Falling In Love” is quintessential Elvis, and the perfect wedding song, especially for a couple who seems inseparable.

Besides, this song sounds great on the uke.

“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” by Queen

Chords in this song: A, Bb, C, D, Dsus4, E, F, G

There probably aren’t too many couples who would request Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” at their ceremony. Their reception, however, would probably be the right setting to bust out this number.

“Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is great dance to, and because it’s upbeat, it can instantly change the atmosphere from romantic to celebratory.

This could be a fun song to add to your repertoire regardless of whether you perform it at weddings. One of the best ukulele wedding songs in my opinion.

“For Once In My Life” by Stevie Wonder

Ukulele Music For Getting Married

Chords in this song: D, D6, D7, Em, E, Em7, Em6, A7, G, Dmaj7, D#m, Bm, E7, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Bb7, Eb6, Eb7, Fm, C#, F7

Stevie’s Wonder “For Once In My Life” is another great dance song.

It features a sophisticated song structure, and there are a ton of chord changes (every one or two bars), though, so if you’re planning to learn it, be sure to take your time studying the chords.

“Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green

Chords in this song: Am, Am7, Ab, Abm, Bb, Bbm, C, C7, D, Dm7, Em, F, Gm, Gm7

Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” is a true classic and a wedding favorite.

Sure, it’s got quite a few chord changes, but this song is worth studying even if you’re not planning to play it at a wedding.

“Lovely Day” by Bill Withers

Chords in this song: F, Dm, A#maj7, C#maj7, Cm, D#, A#7, Cm7

The groovy “Lovely Day” is a classic through and through. No matter what you’re going through, it’s the kind of song that can make you happy.

It’s also a great song for the celebratory atmosphere surrounding weddings. Perfect for the end of the ceremony or even the dance party.

“Make You Feel My Love” by Adele

Chords in this song: Ab, Bb, C7, Eb, Ebm, F, F7

You’ll probably see this tune popping up on most best wedding song lists.

Now, let’s be level-headed about this. The lyric “I know you haven’t made your mind up yet” seems to indicate some trouble in the relationship.

That said, it’s the sentiment of the song that seems to hold true. The narrator basically says they’d do anything to be with the one they love. And that’s what matters in love and romance.

“Somebody Like You” by Keith Urban

Chords in this song: E, A, B, F#maj7, G#maj7, E7, C#m, F#m

How can you not hear wedding bells in this romantic country/southern rock song?

Keith Urban’s electric guitar work, of course, is always something to marvel at. But this is a legitimately great song too.

You should be able to adapt the main banjitar riff to ukulele too.

“Better Together” by Jack Johnson

Chords in this song: Am, Bb, C, Dm, F, Gm

If you’re looking for romantic songs to play on your ukulele, Jack Johnson is another well worth drawing from.

“Better Together” is a shoo-in for weddings as it’s all about how a couple is better together than apart.

Its one-two beat should be easy to replicate on the ukulele too.

“You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne

Chords in this song: Am, C, E7, Em, F, G

Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing” was first released it 2008, but it has that classic Motown vibe that makes it hard to forget (a rather intentional choice, no doubt).

The chorus falls a little flat for me, but I’m probably not the best barometer for choosing wedding songs, because couples can’t seem to get enough of it.

“You Are The Best Thing” is a great song for all those celebratory moments, and it’s fun to play on the ol’ uke.

Best Ukulele Wedding Songs, Final Thoughts

Remember. There are no one-size-fits-all ukulele wedding songs. It’s all up to the couple and what they relate to most.

If you’re picking songs to play at a ceremony, consult the couple first. But if you’ve got free reign, you can’t go wrong with most of the above. Happy pickin’!
