When it comes to your wedding day, there are plenty of emotional and beautiful moments to look forward to. One of the most anticipated moments is the first dance song. It is often a sentimental and meaningful choice for the couple.
The bride and groom may have different preferences when it comes to choosing a first dance song, but 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 struggling to choose a first dancesong, here are a few options to consider:
- "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol
There is something quite 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.
- "Everlong" by Foo Fighters
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.
- "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Elvis
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.
- "Shine" by Take That
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 dancesong for your wedding day?
