If there’s one challenge I had when planning my wedding it was definitely picking a first dance song. You’d think a couple as in love with music as my husband and I are that it would be easy to pick the first dance. NOPE! Our music taste isn’t necessarily the best for romance.
We ended up dancing to Ellie Goulding – Army. Although this is a lovely song and I truly do love having it as our song it was damn near impossible to dance to. The tempo was just too slow. Since I’ve been through this myself, I want to help other brides in their stressful time. I’ve curated a list of some relevant and trendy songs for a great first dance.
Oh my gosh, this song is so sweet! Bringing you a romantic lyric package with a smooth melody that will be easy to dance to. This song is worthy of many many spins with your new forever man.
Okay, if I’m completely honest, I’m not the biggest T. Swift fan. But when I think about this song in a wedding setting, I imagine the cutest view of a rustic industrial style wedding or even a city wedding. Bride and groom dancing close in front of those giant light up maquee letters spelling out something cute like “LOVE” or “FOREVER”. UGH! I’m not crying, you are!
This song I would peg for the fun excited upbeat couple that’s looking for a little choreographed dance to surprise their guests with. Everyone will have an unforgettable time.
Who doesn’t love the whiney musical genius that is Sam Smith. This song is new, trendy and has an easy to move to melody. I imagine sparkles raining in the background when I listen to this song.
I don’t know if it’s just me but Harry Styles really get’s me feeling some type of way. This song is perfect for that (appropriately) steamy first dance. The hotel room might not be so appropriate later that night, if you even can wait that long.
Okay, I know this song is overplayed thanks to TikTok. But HOW FREAKIN’ CUTE IS THIS SONG???? Imagine you and your new hubs at your beachside wedding dancing to this fun poppy song. As long as your entire guest list isn’t addicted to TikTok you’ll be a-okay.
This one is sure to set you up with an adorable marriage just like Justin & Hailey Biber. Get with your man and have a good time with this upbeat song.
This one’s for my country girls out there. This song won’t drive your non country fans away but it’s so catchy that everyone will have a good time. I am not a fan of country but I would definitely enjoy watching a first dance to this song. The energy is perfectly romantic.
Strawberries and Champagne are so 2016. Step aside Bruno Mars and make room for Khalid. This song is perfect for the guy with game that’s found his soul-mate. This song has tall, dakr and handsome written all over it.
