First Dance Wedding Songs


First dance wedding songs should reflect the romance, love and commitment in the newly wed couple. First dance is an important ritual as the newly wed couple dance for the first time as husband and wife.Your first dance should be short, sweet and should have graceful yet crisp movements.


The first dance is often flowed by the father daughter dance and the mother son dance. Three dances back to back should not leave the guests dragged. Hence, make sure all the three dances are short and sweet and are given almost equal space and time. Since you have to perform as a couple in front of the guests, it is a good idea to practice your dance steps at least 5 times before the wedding. If you are not a good dancer, you can take lessons from professional dance trainers. They adjust with your timings and train you even on the weekends. This will save you from unnecessary embarrassment. You can decide on the list of wedding songs along with your partner and the trainer and practice accordingly.

There are many first dance songs you can choose from. Some of the most preferred choices are “Everything I Do” by Bryan Adams, “Because you loved me” by Celine Dion, “I knew I love you” by Savage Gardens, “It had to be you” by Harry Connick Jr., “Could I have this dance” by Anne Murray, “My heart will go on” by Celine Dion, “Always and Forever” by Heatwave and many other romantic and meaningful songs.

It is a good idea to choose a song that both of you can relate to. You can choose a particular song if both of you have good memories about it. This way, you would enjoy dancing on it. The rhythm of your song depends on the type of dance you choose. You can choose a typical ballroom dance, salsa, cha-cha, tango and many other types of dance forms. The songs you choose should match the tempo of the dance form. There are mixed or multiple versions of one song available in the market. Some of the versions have upbeat rhythms. If you choose a fast dance form, then a song with an upbeat rhythm would suit well.
First dance wedding songs should be essentially romantic but not unreal. They should reflect true love. The couple should make sure they choose the songs that quite depict their relationship and personalities. There are loads of first dance songs available on the internet.
