The 7 Most Popular 1st Dance Songs At Weddings

For some couples choosing the song for their first dance together as man and wife is easy. For them there is only one song that is ‘their song’.

But for others there have been quite a few songs that have become special to them since they met. And each one holds a memory of a special moment. So, how do you choose just one song?

Well, why not begin by sitting down together and both making a short list of the songs you would like to consider. Then you can look at the songs that appear on both your lists and remember what was happening at that time and why they are so special.

I asked a DJ friend of mine what songs he regularly gets asked to play at weddings for the couple’s first dance. This is his top 7:

1. Everything I Do by Brian Adams
2. Love Is All Around by Wet Wet Wet
3. Can’t Take My Eyes Off You by Andy Williams
4. Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross
5. Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley
6. Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You by Roberta Flack and Peabo Bryson
7. Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton

Your first dance together will be one of the most romantic and most photographed parts of your wedding reception. It means all the formal stuff is over and your night of celebration is about to begin.

But whichever song you decide is the one for you, don’t forget to tell your music provider in advance. A DJ will need to have a copy of the song and if you are having a live band they need to be able to perform this song.

If you have already chosen your special song for your first dance together, why not leave me a comment in the box below.

I would love to know why you have chosen this particular song and why it means so much to you.

So till next time
Take care
