Wedding Dance

CHOOSING YOUR FIRST DANCE SONG

Your first dance is one of the moments a lot of us dream about for our big day and choosing the song can be daunting. 

You want something that tells the story of the pair of you, means something to you both and something you’ll be happy to dance along to for a good few minutes while your guests stand around you and watch. It’ll be all eyes on the married couple while photos are taken, people cheer and sing/dance along.

So, here’s a list of some songs which are topping the First Dance charts and some you might want to add to your never-ending list of choices…

Truly Madly Deeply – Savage Garden

I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing – Aerosmith

Iris – The Goo Goo Dolls

Make You Feel My Love – Adele

Perfect - Ed Sheeran

Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis

Marry You – Bruno Mars

The Way You Look Tonight – Frank Sinatra

All Of Me – John Legend

Marry Me – Train

A Thousand Years – Christina Perry

Time Of My Life – Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes

Your Song – Elton John

But of course, there’s some great songs which aren’t your traditional lovey dovey stuff which can make amazing first dances too.


Why not try…

Signed, Sealed Delivered, I’m Yours – Stevie Wonder

Friday I’m In Love - The Cure (great if you marry on a Friday too)

I Wanna Dance With Somebody – Whitney

Walking On Sunshine –  Katrina and the Waves

Let’s Get It On – Marvin Gaye

Ho Hey – The Lumineers

All You Need Is Love – The Beatles

Crazy In Love – Beyoncé


Whatever song you choose make it about you and make sure it's one you love to dance to. Another tip, have a bit of a rehearsal with your other half if you're not too sure what you want to do. 3 minutes can feel like forever if you're just awkwardly swaying from side to side.
