As much as we’d love to bombard you with all our wedding photos, we figured it would be nice to add some tips, advice and show what we did.
Our first dance was an easy pick. We wanted something classic and timeless. We picked “At Last” by Etta James (but there is a Beyonce version as well).The #1 rule is to keep things personal. It doesn’t matter if your first dance song is unique, popular, old, new, slow, fast, or anything else. All that matters is that you and your fiancé think it’s the right one for you. Have fun picking!
Here are some songs that landed on our list and hopefully help you with picking the first dance!
1. “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” Elvis Presley
Lyrics you’ll love: “Like a river flows surely to the sea/Darling so it goes/some things are meant to be”
2.”Better Together” by Jack Johnson
This song is entirely sweet with a soft but playful acoustic melody. Probably a more underrated first dance song, but a favorite!
3. “The Way You Look Tonight” – Frank Sinatra
Lyrics you’ll love: “Some day, when I’m awfully low / When the world is cold / I will feel a glow just thinking of you / And the way you look tonight / Yes, you’re lovely, with your smile so warm.”
4. “L-O-V-E,” Nat King Cole
Lyrics you’ll love: “Love is all that I can give to you/Love is more than just a game for two/Two in love can make it.”
5. “Thinking Out Loud” – Ed Sheeran
Lyrics you’ll love: When your legs don’t work like they used to before / And I can’t sweep you off of your feet / Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love? / Will your eyes still smile from?
6. “Make You Feel My Love” – Adele
Adele’s voice just asks to be sung as a first dance!
7. “All My Life” by K-Ci & JoJo
A classic. Cant go wrong with this song.
8. “You and I (Nobody in the World)” by John Legend
This song was ALMOST our first dance! We love this song.
9. ” Ordinary People” by John Legend
Jacob’s favorite song. This was another song that almost made it on our dance floor. We love this song because it’s so real and shows love isn’t perfect.
10. “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
Reasonably new song and just a perfect love song.
11. ” With You I Am” by Cody Johnson
Lyrics you’ll love: ” Who’s that guy with a big ole smile as wide as the Rio Grande. … Same ole boy but a whole lot better whenever you holding my hand. I used to poke fun at them punch drunk lovers.”
12. “Die a Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett
Personal favorite. Kinda slow but so romantic!
13. “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton
Lyrics you’ll love: ” ‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt.For when I think I’ve lost my way.”
14. “My Best Friend” by Tim McGraw
Lyrics you’ll love: “You’re more than a lover.There could never be another.To make me feel the way you do Oh we just get closer.”
15.” You’re Still The One” by Shania Twain
This one has to be a classic! Who doesn’t love singing this song on the top of their lungs!!
