First Dance Songs


First Dance Songs

For some couples, choosing a First Dance song can be an exciting, but challenging task. Below is a list of some great First Dance songs to help make this task for our wedding couples a little easier! While this is not exclusive list of First Dance song choices, our goal is to create a good “starting point” for those couples looking for a little guidance with their wedding song ideas. In addition to more traditional love songs, many couples are also choosing songs from non-traditional genres like: salsa, tango, hip hop, swing and Latin. When searching through this list, we recommend looking not only at the song titles, but also the singers/artists. Most of the artists on this list have many other wonderful songs that are perfect for the wedding First Dance. Happy searching!
