They Just Want You to Know… that no wedding should be without these tunes. After looking back on their favorite wedding day moments with The Knot, the Backstreet Boys decided to take it one step further by sharing their personal picks for the perfect wedding playlist.
These crowd-pleasing tunes—including a few of the band’s standout hits from decades prior—will make your guests take over your reception dance floors. Here’s what Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean selected exclusively for The Knot (and make sure to listen, too).
“All Of Me” by John Legend
“John Legend is the man,” the band explains. “This song says it all.”
“As Long As You Love Me” by Backstreet Boys
“We’ve [released] a lot of love songs in our day,” the boys say. (Indeed, they have with hits like “Inconsolable,” “I Want It That Way,” and “Incomplete.”)
“But nothing sounds like vows as much as the lyrics, ‘I don’t care who you are, where you’re from, what you did, as long as you love me.’”
“Can’t Help Falling In Love With You“ by Elvis Presley
“This song makes any moment feel like you’re in a movie,” they remark.
“Everything” by Michael Buble
“Honestly… what is a wedding without a little Buble?”
“God Only Knows” by The Beach Boys
“This one is a classic,” the boys tells us. “Your heart just sings when you hear it.”
“God, Your Mama, And Me” by Florida Georgia Line featuring the Backstreet Boys
“We love our brothers in Florida Georgia Line,” they say. “And this song we did with them ties in family, love and celebration.”
“I’ll Never Break Your Heart” by the Backstreet Boys
“Everyone comes into a marriage with history,” they remark. “This song of ours symbolizes a new beginning.”
“Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
“Bruno Mars brings fun and funk into everything he does,” the band tells us. “This one is a lock to bring your guests on the dance floor.”
“Shut Up And Dance” by Walk The Moon
“Because really… What is a reception but a celebration of love and a really, really big party!
“Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
“When you hear this song on the radio, it just feels like you’re dancing with the love of your life,” they say. Speaking of which—have you seen their wedding day photos? Love is alive.
