21 First Dance Songs

So many couples don't have a song that's 'Theirs' and lot's of the songs that you'd typically choose for your first dance are also ironically about heartbreak. It's no wonder that choosing the intro to your wedding reception can be tricky.

I've put together a list of 21 suggestions for your first dance, including faster, slower and curve ball possibilities...

  • Megan McKenna - This

  • Taylor Swift - Lover 

  • Kip Moore - Hey pretty girl

  • Noah Kahan - Sink 

  • Coldplay - Sky full of stars 

  • Picture This - Addicted to you 

  • Forest Blakk - I saw love

  • Rachel Platten - Better Place 

  • OneRepublic - Good Life 

  • Xavier Rudd - We deserve to dream

  • James TW - You & Me 

  • Hollow Coves - Blessings

  • James Blunt - Bonfire Heart 

  • Quinn Lewis - Only Everything 

  • Suriel Hess -  Little bit more 

  • Jess Glynn - I’ll be there 

  • Calum Scott - You are the reason 

  • Colbie Caillat - Never gonna let you down 

  • Taylor Acorn - First Date 

  • Tori Kelly - I was made for loving you 

  • Ed Sheeran - Photograph 

If none of these make you want to move, and there's a song, genre of music or alternative to a first dance option that keeps playing on your mind but you're unsure whether it's right, remember that this is your day!

Do what feels right and comfortable for you then throw in everyone else's taste through the rest of the evening.
