When planning your wedding, choosing the perfect song for every moment can be a source of stress. After all, there is so much pressure to make sure that your choices reflect you as a couple and really capture how special your relationship is. Fortunately, we are here to help! Here are our suggestions for the best first dance songs for every couple:
Classic & Traditional:
Song Title: At Last Artist: Etta James
This choice is an all-time favorite that you and your guests are sure to love. With lyrics like, "You smile, you smile. Oh, and then the spell was cast. And here we are in heaven. For you are mine at last" it is not hard to see why it is such a classic.
Modern & Romantic:
Song Title: Everything Artist: Michael Buble
Michael Buble has always been good at making hearts melt: "And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times... It's you, it's you. You make me sing. You're every line, you're every word, you're everything."
Country & Rustic:
Song Title: Then Artist: Brad Paisley
For the brides that like all things country, then you already knew this choice was coming. This song definitely made our list when we heard, "I hadn't told you yet, but I thought I loved you then. And now you're my whole life. Now you're my whole world. I just can't believe the way I feel about you, girl."
Upbeat & Dance-y:
Song Title: Happy Birthday Artist: Kygo (ft. John Legend)
With its slow start and upbeat chorus, this song is such a fun choice. "Feel my heart beating through my chest. I'll get used to just saying "yes." Yes, I'll love you with all I am. Yes, tonight is where we begin."
Fun & Silly:
Your choice!! Create your own personal mix of songs that will show of how fun of a couple you are! You can start with a slow song for the first 30 seconds, and then transition into something fun like Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae song). If you are your fiance really like to get down, then chose multiple songs, not just one. The sky is the limit for you and your new spouse!
