Perfect First Dance Songs

If you’re looking for a break from all of the same song recommendations for your wedding, you’ve come to the right place. All January long, we’re listing our favorite classics, newest favorites, and most unique songs that will be the perfect fit for every phase of your wedding. This week: First Dance Songs!

Traditional First Dance Songs

Sometimes, the classics just call to you. But just because you have traditional tastes doesn’t mean you need to go with a basic or overplayed 1st dance song. Refresh your favorite classic songs by finding modern covers like “Just The Two of Us” sung by Kauai45 and Sweet Coco. Covers like these breathe new life into your favorite songs and are the perfect way to make an old standard unique for you and your partner.

Modern First Dance Songs

The most expected contemporary songs at weddings these days include Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” or “Lover” by Taylor Swift. Both of those are beautiful songs, but still a bit over done. Instead of going with the expected, try “River” by Leon Bridges or “Carry You” by The Teskey Brothers. These songs will give you a similar romantic vibe while making your first dance stand out from the crowd.

Unique First Dance Song

We know it sounds out there, but there are a lot of “unique” songs out there that are super basic. For example, “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri used to stand out at weddings. Now, it’s just as overplayed as every other basic song we listed. Give the Twilight soundtrack a break and try “Never Stop” (Wedding Version) by Safetysuit instead.
