12 First Dance Worthy Songs

by Kloe Forster

We know it can be a bit of a struggle to choose your first dance song – so we’ve put together a list of 12 totally first dance worthy songs…

Take a look and have a listen!


Ed Sheeran – How Would You Feel

The first time I heard this, I just thought it would make a beautiful first dance song! They lyrics are so lovely… we think Mr Sheeran is going to be a popular choice this year for weddings!

Ed Sheeran – Perfect

OK – we might’ve snuck another Ed Sheeran one in here… But this song would be gorgeous if you’re marrying your childhood sweetheart… it’s so sweet, it really would be perfect!

Jessie Ware – Till The End

If you missed the sob fest movie that was Me Before You you probably won’t have heard this one… it’s such a lovely, lovely, song! It’s definitely a timeless classic.

Arctic Monkeys – Baby I’m Yours

We think this song would be fabĀ if your wedding has a 50’s vintagey theme to it… We could just picture a bride in a shorter style wedding dress dancing to this one. It’s a fab song.

The Lumineers – Ho Hey

When you look at the lyrics of this one you might initially be put off… but the chorus is actually brilliant for a first dance! My husband and I chose this one as it reminded us of one of our initial dates (it was part of the movie soundtrack…we both get a little teary when we hear it!)

John Legend – All Of Me

Kim and Kanye chose this song for their first dance in 2014… it’s really swoon worthy. Maybe a teeny little bit cheesy but definitely cute!

The Once – You’re My Best Friend

This was the song Lauren Conrad had for her wedding to William Tell back in 2014. I personally love the original version by Queen too – it’s an oldie but a goodie!

Blake Shelton – Mine Would Be You

This song is very country – but it’s definitely first dance worthy! This is the song you could sing to each other whilst spinning around the dance floor… lovely.

Katy Perry – Unconditionally

If you’re looking for something a little bit quirky and something that’s not too cheesy this is it. The only problem is it might be hard to choreograph a routine to this one!

Ellie Goulding – Still Falling For You

Ever since we swooned of Bridget Jones’ Baby we’ve been loving this song too! Would be a great first dance song. The lyrics are realistic and relatable – spot on.

James Arthur – Say You Won’t Let Go

I hate to admit it as I’m not a James Arthur fan… but this song would be just perfect for your first dance “I wanna stay with you til we’re grey and old…” it makes us want to cry!

Train – Marry Me

This is going to be a tear jerker for all of those watching if you choose this one! It’s so cute!
