Best Wedding First Dance Songs

Choosing the best wedding first dance song for your wedding is a big task. It shall be a song that you both love and feel comfortable dancing to. There are so many options out there. I find that most couples need some inspiration on finding their perfect first dance song.

The most requested first dance song

One of the most requested first dance songs that I was asked to play live has certainly be “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. It is a simply beautiful song with a classic waltz rhythm and slow enough for all dance levels.

Another very popular song is again by Ed Sheeran, “Thinking out loud”. It is a relatively long song. Some couples choose to cut it a bit shorter by asking the bridal party to join them half way through.

A different first dance song

A less popular song but equally beautiful and suitable is “Feels Like Home” by Martha Marlow. The lyrics are stunning and it is very suited as an acoustic version.

Make your first dance song personal

In my eyes, the very best wedding first dance song a couple can choose is a song that has a special meaning to them – whether the lyrics are appropriate or not. It is first time that you will dance together as a married couple. So why not choose the song you kissed to the first time, got engaged, a song that you loved listening to during a wonderful holiday together…

A professional wedding musician, will absolutely love learning a song just for your wedding. They might even be able to record it for you so the memories last forever.

These are my Best Wedding First Dance Songs and I hope I was able to provide some inspiration for you.
