Are you a huge Bob Dylan fan, or know guests that are? Do you want to play some of his iconic music but don’t know what’s best, or appropriate for a wedding? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Today, I am going to be walking you through some of the best Bob Dylan wedding songs.

And you’re getting a curated list by a fan and someone who has just pulled together their playlist for their special day.

So sit back, load up YouTube and Spotify and have a listen.

Pay close attention to the words – my favorite and most intimate lyrics, are found alongside each recommendation below.

Wedding Song

The tune that is yours and mine to play upon this earth,

We’ll play it out the best we know, whatever it is worth,

What’s lost is lost, we can’t regain what went down in the flood,

But happiness to me is you and I love you more than blood

My One and Only Love

Every kiss you give sets my soul on fire

I give myself in sweet surrender

My one and only love

Love Minus Zero/No Limit

My love she speaks like silence

Without ideals or violence

She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful

Yet she’s true, like ice, like fire

People carry roses

Make promises by the hours

My love she laughs like the flowers

Valentines can’t buy her

If Not For You

If not for you, my sky would fall

Rain would gather, too

Without your love I’d be nowhere at all

I’d be lost, if not for you

To Make You Feel My Love

I’ve known it from the moment that we met

No doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry; I’d go black and blue

And I’d go crawling down the avenue

No, there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

To make you feel my love

I Want You

I wasn’t born to lose you

I want you, I want you

I want you so bad

Honey, I want you

She Belongs To Me

She’s got everything she needs, she’s an artist

She don’t look back

She can take the dark out of the nighttime

And paint the daytime black

Precious Angel

Precious angel, under the sun

How was I to know you’d be the one

To show me I was blinded, to show me I was gone

How weak was the foundation I was standing upon ?

Lay Baby Lay

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile

Why wait any longer for the world to begin

You can have your cake and eat it too

Why wait any longer for the one you love

When he’s standing in front of you


I’d go anywhere

Anywhere, anywhere

Ask me and I’m there


Ask me and I’m there

‘Cause I care

Boots Of Spanish Leather

If I had the stars of the darkest night

And the diamonds from the deepest ocean

I’d forsake them all for your sweet kiss

That’s all I wish to be owning


Bob Dylan has a catalog of great music; besides, his career has spanned 50 years!

When it comes to choosing one, or several, of his songs for different parts of your special day – do consider the time of day, lyrics, tone, and sentiment behind the song.

For instance, ‘wedding song’ is ideal for the processional, whereas lady lady lay would make a good first dance song.

Nevertheless, have a listen to these songs, and perhaps some of his others to find out what feels right for you and your partner.

But do consider adding Bob Dylan to your playlist.

His songs are very popular among various ages.

They just work so well for weddings where guests are made up of different generations too!
