Once you’ve had your wedding, and you’ve gone to the wedding reception, the time has come for the first dance as a married couple. This is a big thing, and should be perfect in every way, from the dance you do to the music you choose. However, choosing the right music can sometimes be difficult. To try and help you with this, we’re taking a look at some of the best first dance songs available.
Kicking off our list is the band Aerosmith, who contribute to the first dance selections with their song, ‘I don’t want to miss a thing’. If you’re looking for a meaningful song, but don’t want to get caught up in tradition and rules, then this is a good pick, managing to be both romantic and great to listen to.
Brought to you by the English Ska band Madness, this is a very offbeat first dance song for those weddings which don’t put tradition very highly on the list of priorities. Containing vocals, a keyboard and even the sax in some places, this is a great tune which everyone can get down and enjoy.
Everyone has heard Queen. They’re legends among rock and roll, with songs that are still as popular today as they were some 30 years ago. And this is a touching piece about how much one person loves another. It’s a pretty good tune for everyone to join you in, and it’ll be something that people will remember for years to come, so if you’re looking for a fun first dance song then you’ve come to the right place.
So if you’re not one for loud and energetic dances, and prefer something a little slower and romantic, then why not put on some of Ed Sheeran’s beautiful tones and slow dance to this little number. It’s definitely softer and slower than some of the other ones, and is perfect for a couple who just want to savour the music and enjoy the sensation of being in each other’s arms.
Who’s seen Grease? It’s one of those musicals which most people saw growing up. It’s got John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, and is one of the best kind of feel good musicals of it’s time. So why not have your first dance to the ending song from the movie? We Go Together is wild, whacky and all over the place, and has undertones of a hopeful future and the knowledge that everything will turn out great.
Overall, these are just a few ideas for your first dance as married couple. Obviously, you’ll want to go with whatever is in your heart, and pick the song that has the most memories with you and your partner, but these are still some great ideas if you can’t decide. The first dance is something which you won’t forget in a hurry, so try and pick the best song possible.
