Sick of hearing the popular first dance song ideas like Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ or ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri? Want to do something different and that hasn’t been overplayed? Here are some ideas to help choose a first dance song:

Make a list of songs that have always had special meaning to you both as a couple. Could be from your first date or just something you both have a special connection with when you hear it. It doesn’t matter what genre it is from, it could be a classic rock song or R&B. Consider the lyrics that speak to you and your love for each other. Have fun listening to the list together and choose something that feels right when you both hear it.


Consider the tempo you would like do you feel awkward side stepping to a slower ballad or would you like to up the tempo so you can get the party started in style.

Can’t find any you like? Write your own or have a song written for you?

If you feel dread any time you think about dancing in front of people take it out all together and don’t have one!

It’s your day, do it your way!
