Wedding Inspiration: 15 Romantic Ceremony Songs for LGBTQ+ Couples

Music for LGBTQ weddings | Nexus String Quartet

Everyone needs music for their big day that showcases their personality and unique style for the wedding. We’ve put together a list of fabulously romantic and modern string quartet songs from our repertoire that are same-sex friendly and gender neutral to help you start planning ceremony of your dreams. After all, when it comes to getting hitched, there's nothing more important than celebrating you and your partner's relationship!

Also, keep in mind that string quartet covers do not have lyrics; if you really love a tune in our repertoire, but the pronouns aren’t always applicable to your relationship, that’s okay! A string version is the perfect way to approach the song from a new angle without focusing on the lyrics.

We adore these songs because they are evergreen, versatile, diverse, and beautiful for LGBTQ+ wedding ceremonies. Be sure to check out our repertoire list for other ideas or contact us if you need help planning your ceremony:
