51 First Dance Songs - As Chosen By Music Insiders

Imagine that spine-tingling (nerve-jangling!) moment on your big day, when you take to the dancefloor together and all eyes are on you.

It’s the moment when you say “This is Us, everybody!”, so it’s no wonder that the pressure to pick the perfect wedding first dance song can be overwhelming.

Add to that the fact you have to share your dream music choice with your Intended... Great if you’re both on the same page, musically. Not so if you’re an ‘opposites attract’ kind of couple, where it’s an impossible toss-up between Hall & Oates or Cardi B. 

The truth is, deciding on a track that says everything about you both can be anything but easy, requiring some serious consideration.

Do you clearly hear the song when you think about your wedding dance?

If not (or if your Intended’s choice is a definite no go...) our list is here to help. Chosen by pro musicians, wedding bands, and over 7,000 recently-hitched music fans, here are 51 first dance favourites to help you find The One...
