The Beatles Love Songs for Weddings

The Beatles are considered to be the most influential rock and roll band of all time. John Lennon and Paul McCartney worked together to pen a record-setting number of hits that are perfect wedding songs. Here is a look at the best Beatles love songs for weddings.

About The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band made up of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. They were formed in 1960, and their career lasted just a decade. In that time, the Beatles literally changed the sound of modern music forever.

With McCartney and Lennon as the principal songwriters, the Beatles combined elements of classical music and 1950s rock and roll to create songs of great lyrical and musical depth. Guitarist George Harrison also contributed a few songs which helped to identify him as the best musician in the group.

It is unlikely that anyone will ever match the overall success and influence of the Beatles. The group still holds Guinness world records in many different categories.

Hey Jude
1968, Hey Jude

Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her under your skin,
Then you’ll begin to make it
Better

The year was 1968 and many people thought that the Beatles were finished, but the release of this Grammy Hall of Fame hit gave the group another push to the top of the charts. Many say that McCartney wrote this as a touching tribute to Lennon’s relationship with Yoko Ono, and the song is filled with sentimental metaphors that suggest eternal love.

Yesterday
1965, Help!

I don’t know, she wouldn’t say
I said something wrong
Now I long for yesterday

Even though the song describes a break-up, it is a very popular song. Weddings are a rite of passage, a part of growing up. This is precisely the vibe Paul McCartney creates in this Beatles classic that remains one of the group’s most popular songs.

When I’m Sixty-Four
1967, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Would you lock the door
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four

If you want something a little bit whimsical and fun to play as you cut your wedding cake or pour the unity sand, this is the Beatles song to top all others. It will have everyone at your wedding smiling and singing along, and most people of all ages are familiar with the lyrics.

Something
1969, Abbey Road

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t want to leave her now

The contributions of George Harrison to the Beatles’ catalog of music are often defined by this slow ballad which describes longing and devotion to a special someone. It can be used at your wedding as an alternative processional, or you may save it for the first dance of the evening with your new spouse.

All You Need Is Love
1967, All You Need Is Love

All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need

All you need for your wedding are a few simple declarations of love to your significant other, and this old Beatles song reminds everyone that love conquers all. It is from the earlier portion of the group’s career and has that trademark Fab Four sound, so you will probably want to include it on the reception playlist.

And I Love Her
1964, A Hard Day’s Night

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me

This song was released by the Beatles in 1964, and it became one of the biggest hits from the album A Hard Day’s Night. It is a slow ballad that is perfect for dancing, but you can also play it at your wedding as the groom and groomsmen are taking up their positions at the altar.

Till There Was You
1963, With the Beatles

There was love all around
But I never heard it singing
No, I never heard it at all
Till there was you

True Beatles fans will appreciate this love ballad, a song that still resonates with lovers today. You can have the band play it and choose to sing the song for your new spouse if you have the vocal ability, or you can create a special wedding moment by entering the reception hall as the song fills the room with sentiment.

All My Loving
1963, With the Beatles

Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Remember I’ll always be true

The Beatles were at their very best in their early career according to many fans, and this is one of the songs that defined that period. It can also help to define your wedding as a celebration of the music you cherish, marking the occasion as a reflection of your good taste.

Let It Be
1970, Let It Be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

The Beatles had officially called it quits just a month before the release of this iconic single, and many claim that you can hear a hint of sadness in the vocals of Paul McCartney. At your wedding, there will be optimism and hope for a better tomorrow when this song is played as all of the guests leave the reception venue.

Got to Get You Into My Life
1966, Revolver

Ooh, you were meant to be near me
Ooh, and I want you to hear me
Say we’ll be together every day

The Beatles understood the importance of powerful songwriting and how lyrics must convey a special theme. You can sense that understanding in this song which showed that the Fab Four was capable of crafting tunes on the harder side.

She’s Leaving Home
1967, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Something inside, that was always denied,
For so many years
She’s leaving home

No father wants to say goodbye to his little girl, but your wedding will bring about this rite of passage. This song will work well for you if you want something sentimental for a special father/daughter dance, and all the guests are sure to remember the moment for years to come.

I Need You
1965, Help!

I could never really live without you
So, come on back and see
Just what you mean to me
I need you

One of the best things about many Beatles love songs is their straightforward approach to the subject of romance. Here’s a song that belongs on your wedding reception playlist, or you can choose to include it among the selections that play as guests are being seated.

From Me to You
1963, From Me to You

If there’s anything that you want
If there’s anything I can do
Just call on me and I’ll send it along
With love, from me to you

This is a fun love song from the earliest days of the Beatles’ career, one that is filled with a catchy hook and fun lyrics. Who can resist the urge to dance when the strains of this song fill your wedding reception hall?

Don’t Let Me Down
1969, Let It Be

I’m in love for the first time
Don’t you know it’s gonna last
It’s a love that lasts forever

When the Beatles played this song atop Apple Corps headquarters in London, the entire world was taken by storm. The moment was documented in the 2022 film The Beatles: Get Back, and you can relive it at your own wedding by choosing to include this song.

Here Comes The Sun
1969, Abbey Road

Here comes the sun do, do, do
Here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

A very popular processional song that is typically played as an instrumental song.

In My Life
1965, Rubber Soul

For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

A very popular wedding reception song to play as a parent-child dance song.

Here, There and Everywhere
1966, Revolver

I want her everywhere
And if she’s beside me
I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere

The perfect song dedication to your new bride on your wedding day!

Songs That Are Also Vows (The Beatles Edition)

The works of Shakespeare have transcended their time and place and are still performed over 400 years later. It has been argued that the music of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, while still The Beatles, is the pop music equivalent, destined to be remembered and performed for hundreds of years to come. The melodies are iconic and lush and, with over 200 original songs recorded by the band, there are quite a few with lyrics that echo or flat-out mirror your vows to one another.

Another plus to utilizing any one of these songs is that, with a singer and an acoustic guitar, each can be performed intimately and in contrast to the bombast of the ceremony making your vows stand out by being beautifully understated. If you want someone to listen, say it softly.

“I Will”
From ‘The Beatles’ (1968)

A Paul McCartney masterpiece at just under two minutes, there is something remarkably sweet and moving of this brief piece that says everything that is needed to be said.

Who knows how long I’ve loved you
You know I love you still
Will I wait a lonely lifetime
If you want me to, I will

“When I’m Sixty-Four”
From ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ (1967)

The promise of forever is slightly unrealistic but the brilliance of this remarkable song is that it gives a specific age to shoot for. How lovely to think on the twilight years and the idea of the two of you still waking up to one another “when you’re sixty-four.”

I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds
Who could ask for more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four

“Two of Us”
From ‘Let It Be’ (1970)

At the end of the day, once all the toasts have been made and the dances danced, the next morning will dawn on just the two of you. You will be home and you will be home to each other.

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches

“Here, There and Everywhere”
From ‘Revolver’ (1966)

Often vows are less than a list of promises and instead of a declaration of the belief that “love never dies.” This is the song that declares that undying love perfectly.

I want her everywhere
And if she’s beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share
Each one believing that love never dies
Watching their eyes and hoping I’m always there

“In My Life”
From ‘Rubber Soul’ (1965)

Perhaps your engagement has been longer than anticipated or the road to the altar has been rocky. You’re here, now and the reflection upon the breadth of your time together, slowing ascending to this moment in time is worth gazing at for a minute. One of John Lennon’s most extraordinary compositions, the lyrics encapsulate the whole of your experience together.

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

“Something”
From ‘Abbey Road’ (1969)

As much a tribute to the bride as a promise of lifelong fidelity and adoration, this piece tries to explain that you each have an elusive quality that only the other can truly see and appreciate.

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You both know what you want to say to one another on your day but “a little help from your friends” is the best way to get by.

I hope you liked our special list of wedding vow songs in the style of The Beatles.
