The last time we talked music, I was singing the praises of the Have a Great Day! Spotify playlist for its ability to bring some much needed calm to my life as I navigated through the final busy week leading up to my wedding day. If you follow Woman Tribune on Facebook, you might have seen our post-wedding selfie and that the day was a rousing success.
Needless to say, I am still high on all of this newlywed energy, so what better time than now to share some of my favorite modern love songs. Whether you’re planning your own wedding and looking for that perfect first dance song or just love a good ballad (and who doesn’t, am I right?) these 20 modern love songs are sure to satisfy all your love song needs.

My friend is getting married next spring and Thinking Out Loud is her song. I think it’s a great song for this.
I think you just introduced me to some new (to me) artists to start following. Love the choices!
Oh I love Train’s “Marry Me” and I love Ed Sheeran, but hadn’t heard that song before or the Alabama Shakes song! I think these will be my new downloads! Congratulations on tying the knot!
Those are all so sweet choices. We went with an older song for our first dance, but if we ever renewed our vows I’d go with something a little less traditional.
Great list. I love love love Maroon 5’s Sugar and John Legend’s All of me. So romantic!
ANYTHING Ed Sheeran works for me 😉
Maroon 5 – Sugar is one of my favorite.
