Best Wedding First Dance Songs
Choosing a song for your first dance is a big task, a song that you both love and feel comfortable dancing to. There are so many options out there and I find that most couples need some inspiration on finding their perfect 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, a classic waltz rhythm to dance too 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, but some couples choose to cut it a bit shorter or ask to invite the bridal party to join them half way through.
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.
Personally, the very best wedding first dance song a couple can choose in my eyes is a song that has a special meaning to them – whether the lyrics are appropriate or not. It is first time 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 and 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.
