It is one of the most important moments at a wedding ceremony. All that precedes it seems important and a couple plans everything to the very last detail, but the first dance, as a moment that symbolizes their first joint activity as a married couple, is something they remember for the rest of their lives.
The choice of a growing number of couples is for this first dance to be played by a string quartet. They are demanding and picky, they listen to many songs trying to choose the right one. Our song list features dozens of songs that could be a perfect choice for the first dance, regardless of whether you are planning a classic, alternative, romantic or rock wedding.
The tango or the waltz are dances because of which couples are even willing to take dancing lessons and, indeed, there is nothing more romantic than when two people waltz across the floor to the sounds of On the Beautiful Blue Danube or do the tango to Por Una Cabeza.
The romantic choice also includes the songs Fly me to the Moon, Moon River, Another Day of Sun from the film La La Land, Dance Me to the End of Love, The Way You Look Tonight, What a Wonderful World…
Alternative and rock weddings are different from the very start, and the suggested first dance songs are Just Like Heaven ,Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Feeling Good (Muse), Nothing Else Matters…
Pop songs have lately become the most popular choice and the following top the list: Marry You (Bruno Mars), Love Me Like You Do (Elli Goolding), Viva la Vida (Coldplay), Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran), Happy (Pharrell Williams), All of Me (John Legend).
Not all songs that bridal couples decide on turn out to be the best choice in practice, so we have put together our list of best first dance songs:
