Last Updated: 14th February 2022

If you’ve stumbled across this page, you’re likely looking to populate your wedding playlist with songs from the noughties. What a great idea! The 2000s saw an influx of mainstream genres such as hip-hop and alternative rock, while pop and Britpop still held firm in the charts. It was an era of big tunes and loads of variety.

2000s tracks are extremely popular at weddings as they are the songs people grew up with or listened to on a night out with their mates. There were some beautiful love songs written as well, which are perfect to use as you walk down the aisle or as a first dance song.

We have collated over 300 of the best 2000s songs for you to peruse. Some are excellent choices for the more romantic and intimate parts of your day, others will evoke so much nostalgia that your friends and family won’t be able to resist dancing the night away and some are just a bit of fun.
