25 Of The Best First Dance Songs

Everyone wants to pick the perfect song to play for the first dance on their wedding day! Finding one that you agree on as a couple isn’t always so easy though.

You want a song that you will listen to in years to come and it will remind you of that special moment. Some couples will already have a song that means something to them, that is personal to them. Others may struggle if they don’t enjoy the same style of music or both have a song each that they would love to use.

Traditionally a slow romantic song would be played and the couple would be surrounded by family and friends taking photos.

Now couples may take lessons to create a dance routine for their first dance, or surprise their guests with a dance routine involving the wedding party! Wedding Roles (prettyweddingday.com)

If you’ve booked a live band or a DJ for the evening, ask them if they have any ideas! Also, let them know in advance so they’ll definitely have your song choice, or a band may learn it for you.

Finally, don’t pick a type of song that you think you should have! If you love rock or dance music, then go with it! Don’t be worried, It’s your wedding and everyone will love it anyway.
