Prepping for your big day should be a fun and joyful experience—and playing the right wedding morning playlist while primping can lighten the mood and relieve any last-minute stress you may have. We recommend playing your favorite upbeat songs that your getting-ready crew can sing along (and even dance!) to while getting hair and makeup done, as well as putting on their ensembles.
Check out our wedding morning playlist, featuring both old favorites and new hits to set a joyful mood before you head down the aisle.
