50 Perfect first dance wedding songs

One of the most romantic moments of your wedding day is the first dance.  Not only is it significant as it is the first dance as a newly married couple, but it’s usually the first wedding reception song which means the party is about to commence! However, before we get to the actual party the first dance starts the chain of events, such as the father daughter dance, mother son dance and finally the bridal party dance/every wedding guest joins the dance floor.

Some couples have a first dance song in mind, one that takes them back to their very first date or a song that makes them think of one another. Other couples might not find it that easy to choose a first dance wedding song.  This is why we have put together a list of perfect wedding songs no matter what style you are looking for. From classics from Frank Sinatra and Etta James to modern melodies from Ed Sheeran and John Legend. Be inspired by our 50 perfect first dance wedding songs you’ll love!
