Perfect First Dance Songs Chosen By Wedding DJs and Bands

Your first dance. This is a really special moment for couples for a few reasons. Firstly, all eyes are on you. Everyone will be watching this romantic moment as you lock eyes and dance together. Secondly, even though all eyes are on you, it’s a really intimate moment as husband and wife. And thirdly, it’s a wonderful way to open the dancefloor and get the party started. Sure, you’re probably going to pick a song that’s slower and more romantic (just check out the first dance songs below), but if you do this right, what follows will be an epic party.

Expert advice: get your guests to stand around the dancefloor during your first dance. Then, once your dance is complete, play an upbeat song that will get everyone onto the dancefloor (here are some great ideas!).

For now, let’s begin with the first part: your first dance. We’ve asked the experts – wedding DJs and bands – for their recommendations for the perfect first dance song. If you haven’t settled on a song yet, we’re sure you’ll find one that’s right for you in the list below…
