Top 30 First Dance Songs of 2017
All eyes are on you and your partner and the pressure is on to impress with your first dance as a married couple. We have 30 of the best songs worthy of your first dance.
There are plenty of amazing and memorable moments throughout a wedding day, however, one that will always stick out in the minds of the happy couple (not to mention many of the guests too) is the first dance. The first dance (although often the actual first dance of the night) is the first chance for the newlyweds to take to the floor together.
The thing about first dances is that you are going to want to make sure that you get your choice right, after all, not only is it an important moment but it is also one that many people will want to catch on film. So, where do you start?
There are a real wealth of first dance songs out there for you to choose from and to help inspire you we have put together some of the most commonly played songs from weddings during the last year.
Which songs will you choose?
As you can see, there are a variety of different songs that you can choose for your first dance. But how do you know which one is actually the right choice for you? Let’s take a look at some of the things that you need to keep in mind when it comes to choosing a first dance song.
Choosing the perfect first dance song
So, where do you start when it comes to choosing the perfect first dance song for your big day?
Well, the first thing that you might want to do is to think about a song that means something to you both as a couple. This could be a track that reminds you of one of your favourite (or first dates) together or perhaps something that you have had played on a holiday. The idea is that you find a song that is going to make your first dance feel extra special.
Another great way to find the perfect first dance song, is to find a song that you feel summarises your love for one another. There are lots of romantic songs out there that you can pick from, so make sure that you listen to plenty of songs, read the lyrics and see what songs could be the perfect fit for your relationship with one another.
Every couple has a particular style or genre of music that they prefer, so you should never disregard your style of music when it comes to picking your first dance. Of course, this could be a lot harder if you don’t actually agree on styles of music, as you are going to need to find common ground on a genre that you can decide on.
It is most traditional for you to choose a slow melody for a first dance, but that doesn’t mean to say that this has to be the case for you. Many couples will apply shirk tradition on other aspects of their wedding day, so why not do that with your first dance too? Just be prepared that this might be a bit of a surprise to some of your guests.
The thing to remember when it comes to choosing your first dance song is that ultimately it is all about you as a couple and the type of music that you prefer. Don’t feel that you have to go with tradition, don’t feel that it has to be a lovey dovey tune that will bring everyone to tears. Pick something that makes you both happy and that you will remember for many years to come. That is the way to make sure that your wedding is as special as it can be.
