"All of Me" is a song by American singer John Legend, which is his biggest hit to date. This song is dedicated to his wife Chrissy Teigen, so you can feel tender love from this piano power ballad. The tune and the lyrics are both very romantic, which make this song well fit to engagement party.

Better Man, sung by James Morrison, is a very emotional song which makes the engaged couples recall lots of struggling moments have gone through together. Please notice not to choose Pearl Jam’s version which listed as the song you shouldn’t play at wedding. It’s a great song too, but it doesn’t belong on your engagement playlist or wedding playlist.

"First Time" is a song by American band Lifehouse. The accompany music video featured clips of the moments when couples falling in love for the first time. “I'm feeling alive all over again, as deep as a scar that's under my skin, like being in love, she said, for the first time, maybe I'm wrong, I'm feeling right, whenever I'm alone with you tonight, like being in love to feel for the first time.” I really moved by these sweet lyrics.

5) Pour Some Sugar on Me

"Pour Some Sugar on Me" is a song by the English rock band Def Leppard from their 1987 album Hysteria. I recommend it because it’s really a traditional and old song. And the shocked rhythm can easily active the atmosphere of a party.

This rock and beating music is created by Nickelback. As you know, this band is a personalized band and their songs are also individual. If you prefer to hold a personalized engagement party that belongs to young people, this rock song is just to your taste.

If you’re a fan of The Peanuts Movie, then you must have heard this song before. "Better When I'm Dancin’" is a song by Meghan Trainor, which first released as a soundtrack to the film.

Once upon a time, Taylor surprised her fans by performing this song at their weddings. While the lyrics “It’s gonna go down in flames” might be somewhat weird for a wedding, the brisk rhythm of the music will get you on the dance floor.
