The 1st dance as husband and wife is one of the moments that can make your wedding magical when you look back at the beautiful photo and wedding video. I have compiled a list of my personal favorite songs and most popular first dance wedding songs out there and also based on first dance song lyrics , suitable slow dance music for weddings and just being the best song that fit the occasion.
Ed Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud
This has got to be Ed Sheeran’s perfect first dance song. The lyrics are built for first dance. In the music video you can see Ed ballet dancing, I dare you to try and do the same choreographed wedding dance.
John Legend - 'All of Me'
The chorus to this song will get the crowd singing along, "Cos all of me loves all of you". This song it has to be one of the top all-time favorite love song hands down. I have played All Of Me first dance song to almost all my weddings weather as cocktail song or first dance song.
Al Green - 'Let's Stay Together'
Let’s Stay Together is my personal favorite Love song. If I had it my way every couple would get married to this song. Everything about this song makes me excited from the beat, to the lyrics.
John Legend - You & I
Another John Legend hit song, and this track You & I it is so sweet, so cute and empowers your Wife and helps you express feelings and physical attraction to your love of your life.
Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are
Okay I know that this song is a fast first dance wedding song, but whoever said that your first dance has to be slow. Bruno Mars definitely nailed this song and it had definitely earned its position on my Top First Dance Wedding list.
Babyface - Every Time I Close My Eyes
They don’t make songs like this anymore Babyface – Everytime I close My Eyes, this has been played at so many weddings over the years This is probably the best R&B wedding song first dance, a classic hit if you love 90s R&B this would be a great first dance songs.
Christina Perri - A Thousand Years
A thousand years is probably becoming a very popular song for first dance wedding songs. If you go on YouTube you will see a lot of brides & grooms that have done a routine to this song. It is a modern first dance song and the lyrics to the song are amazing.
MAJOR. - Why I Love You
This is not a popular song at all, for most of you reading this you probably never heard this song before.
Bee Gees - How Deep Is Your Love
Bee Gees if you love classic 70’s Disco music here is a good oldies first dance wedding songs.
Frank Sinatra - The Way You Look Tonight
I have never been to New York but something about this song makes me feel I have been there Frank Sinatra well known legend when it comes to Jazz music.
Etta James - At Last
That voice is so beautiful to slow dance to, the Legend Etta James. If you are into violin wedding music this will be a perfect 1st wedding dance.
Billy Paul - Me And Mrs. Jones
MOTOWN music special if your last name is Jones this should be a easy choice for you.
Stand By Me, Ben E King
Another classic first dance songs and Stand By Me is such a good song there has been so many covers done by various artists.
Tamia - So Into You
Another R&B classic track I think the lyrics to this song are really good to dance to not to mention that 90’s R&B beat. There has been a couple of versions of this track but nothing beats the original.
Keyshia Cole - Heaven Sent
This is by far the best track that Keyshia Cole has sung in her career, I have seen a lot of couples dancing to this track.
Mali Music - Beautiful
This is just a Beautiful song a very unique first dance but I love this songs.
