You’re engaged, have chosen your wedding date, and all the arrangements are in place. Now it’s time to pick a first dance song for your wedding, but which one is right? 

There are many first dance songs to choose from, but some sound better than others. To help you find the perfect song for your wedding, we have compiled a list of tips to help you.

Look For Lyrics That Speak To Your Relationship Together

There are many ways to express love and care for your partner. One of the most popular ways is through songs that have been written about relationships. These songs can help you find new ways to connect with your partner or even make a connection that you didn’t know was possible.

Some songs speak to the heart, while others have a romantic tone, focusing on finding your soulmate. Regardless of what type of song you’re looking for, it’s important to find one that speaks directly to your relationship.

Find A Common Musical Interest

When picking a first dance song, some people look to their favorite artists, bands, or songs for guidance. If you and your partner have similar musical tastes, this can help narrow down potential options. You can ask each other questions about which songs you like and dislike. Then, with some simple conversation, you’ll be able to narrow down the list of potential options quickly.

Listen To More Music Together

If you don’t already spend a lot of time listening to music together, try to jump on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, or another music streaming service more often. From John Legend to Alicia Keys, the options for your wedding day are endless. You can also run google searches with “popular first dance songs” to find some trendy ideas.

Check Out Instrumentals

Think about the books and movies you both love, like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. Then consider hiring a band to create an acoustic instrumental version of one of those songs for your first dance song. 

Go With A Special Meaning

A song with a special meaning is a very popular and easy way to choose your first dance song. If you and your significant other have a meaningful song special for you, that could be the perfect song choice.  In addition, it will make your first dance more special and memorable.

Bring Your Friends and Family Into The Mix

You are so well-known by your friends and family. They know so many songs from the past that you and your partner might have forgotten. You can ask your friends and family members to give you their favorite songs from when they were young.

Asking your friends, family, or other loved ones for help can be a great way to narrow down the list of potential options.
