Choosing your first dance song – our picks to help you find the perfect song for your big day!

There are plenty of emotional and beautiful moments to look forward to when it comes to your wedding day. This could be seeing the bride in her wedding dress for the first time, or perhaps getting all the family and friends together to allow for the wedding photographer to take their shots.

However, one of the main times that many people will look forward to is hearing your first dance song. So much so, that you will usually find that your wedding videographer will stick around until your first dance song and will them move on, leaving you to dance the night away with your guests.

Wedding songs are usually sentimental choices, some maybe the bride’s song and some may be the groom’s song. However, the main thing to think about is your favourite wedding song as a couple, something that really has a meaning to you both.

If you are looking for a first dance song and you feel that you are stuck on which one to choose, we are here to help you. We have put together a variety of songs that we think could be the perfect choice for your big day.

Snow Patrol- Chasing Cars

There is something pretty beautiful about this particular song. Chasing Cars is not only a popular tune, but it is also quite sentimental too. It is a sure-fire way to ensure that everyone knows how you and your new bride or groom is all that you need and maybe even get a few tears shed in the process.

Foo Fighters- Everlong

If you prefer a rockier approach to your first dance, then you might want to think about this particular tune. Everlong is beautiful, but it is still alternative enough to appeal to plenty of “against the grain couples” it is also a bit more of a surprise than some of the other songs out there that you can choose.

Elvis- Can’t Help Falling in Love

There is also nothing wrong with choosing a song that is more traditional and classic. Especially if it is as beautiful as this tune from Elvis. The great thing about this particular song is that it is not only romantic, but it also appeals to the majority of your guests too, no matter their age.

Take That- Shine

A first dance wedding song doesn’t always have to mean that it is slow, it can actually be a fast and more upbeat tune, one that you can actually dance to (and maybe encourage your wedding guests to join in on too). We think that that this particular song is nice and upbeat and it still has a relatively romantic feel. Which really is the perfect combination.

As you can see, there is plenty of choice when it comes to your wedding day song, so, why not take some inspiration from our list and see if you can find the right first dance song for your wedding day?
