The Top 10 First Dance Wedding Songs

If you have an upcoming wedding, then you already know just how much planning and effort it takes to make your special day perfect. Everything has to be just right, down to the last detail. From the venue and wedding band, to the caterers, the flowers and, of course, your first dance.

Your first dance on your wedding day is supposed to be romantic, personal and it should create lasting memories that are unforgettable. That means that the two of you have practiced, maybe even taken a few dance lessons and have everything down to an exact routine lasting less than 5 minutes or so. That’s right, months of planning and coordinating your dance moves so as not to step on each other’s feet comes down to a few short minutes, or at least as long as your favourite song is played.

Choosing The Perfect Song

You have chosen a song for your first dance, haven’t you? This can be the challenging part. Choosing the perfect song for your first dance takes a lot of thought. It has to be a song that you both like and that symbolises your love for each other. You don’t want just any song.

With that being said, we are going to take a look at some of the most popular wedding songs of this past year. This might give you an idea for your own first dance song. Let’s get started:
