First Dance Songs

For many couples, the first dance is the most important piece of music they’ll choose. All eyes will be on you as you take the floor for your first dance as husband and wife. This moment is all about you and your betrothed, so be sure to pick a song that’s important to you and represents what you mean to each other.

While there are several tried and true – and popular – first dance options, don’t be afraid to choose a song that might be a little less well-known, as long as it’s meaningful to you. Also, pay close attention to all of the lyrics of your chosen song to make sure that it’s appropriate for the grandparents and children in the crowd.
