Best First Dance Wedding Songs

You’re getting married! Woohoo! You’ve found the right guy, now it’s time to choose everything else, including your first dance song. This is not a decision most brides take lightly. It’s the song everyone will watch you and your honey dance to together at your wedding and it’s going to be “your song” from that day forward.

When you hear this song on the radio, you’ll think of your husband and your wedding. When other people hear it, they’ll think of you. And when you’re old and grey and celebrating a distant, significant anniversary, your grandchildren will cue it up so you can dance to it all over again.

So, where do you start? If you already have a song that’s meaningful to you, consider using it. You already love it and it already has meaning. If not, start paying attention to everything you hear and ask yourself if it’s right for your first dance song.

Most importantly, choose a song that suits your personality as a couple. Here are a few suggestions:
