Picking out which song you’ll dance to for your first dance as a married couple can be difficult. Especially if you don’t have a specific song you and your partner are privy to and consider “your song”. So if you don’t have that, then it can become a sort of back and forth affair.  This year has had some great classics, new songs, and a mix of everything in between all types of genres for first dance songs. There are so many, it’s hard to choose, but here is just a small list to get you started:

  • Perfect - Ed Sheeran

  • Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran

  • A Thousand Years - Christina Perri

  • Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding 

  • All of Me - John Legend

  • Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol

  • I’m Yours - Jason Mraz

  • I Won’t Give Up - Jason Mraz

  • (I’ve had) The Time of my Life - (Dirty Dancing) 

  • Iris - Goo Goo Dolls

Though this is a very short list of some of the most popular wedding first dance songs, there are so many more! This could be a good start to see what vibe you’re going for. A slower and more romantic song, or a more upbeat feel. If you decide to go for one on this list, that’s great! If you aren’t sure, keep looking around for similar songs, there are many out there to choose from that you and your partner may both like!
