One of the most difficult pieces of planning a wedding is selecting the songs you want played for different aspects of the event. Selecting the song for the First Dance with your new spouse may be one of the hardest as you will want to pick a song that embodies your love but also a song that both you and your spouse like. We have gone and selected 10 songs that are great options for your First Dance.
“Your Song” by Elton John
A personal favorite of mine, “Your Song” by Elton John is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. It is about a person serenading a love interest with the song.
“Tale as Old as Time” from Beauty and the Beast by Alan Menken & Howard Ashman
If you and your partner are Disney fanatics an excellent first dance song choice is the Disney classic, “Tale as Old as Time” from the film, Beauty and the Beast. It will be symbolic of your storybook romance and how you were destined to be together.
“All of Me” by John Legend
“All of Me” by John Legend is a more modern song that showcases how no matter how imperfect you think you are, your partner loves you and all of the parts of you that you think are flawed.
“Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton
A beautiful, timeless song with a meaning full of love.
“Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Ingrid Michaelson
Weddings are all about celebrating the love that the couple has for each other. Show your guests how much you love your spouse with a song about how love is unpredictable and no matter what you do you can’t help but be in love with your new spouse.
“All You Need Is Love” by The Beatles
Bring it back to the ’60’s with The Beatles’ hit, “All You Need Is Love” because you and your partners love is all that you need especially in a moment where you are celebrating the love you share.
“Make You Feel My Love” by Adele
Adele has made a name for herself as one of the most powerful voices of the decade. This song is about how far a person will go to show their partner just how much they love them.
“You’re My Best Friend” by Queen
Not only will your fiance be your husband/wife but they will forever remain your best friend. “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen fully embodies this in that not only do you love your spouse with all your heart but they are also your best friend who will stand by you and support you through it all.
“Over the Rainbow” performed by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole
This version of the popular “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” has taken the wedding world by storm due to its unique upbeat melody and its ode to the film, The Wizard of Oz. The song is about hope and dreams. With the inspiring message, why not have it as your First Dance Song?
“How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)” by James Taylor
Love is very sweet indeed and this upbeat song will allow you to add a little more pep to your step during your first dance.
