50 First Dance Song Ideas

Choosing the First Dance song for your wedding reception can be a daunting task. It should be a song that either says something about you as a couple, is a song that means something to you or a combination of both. We could easily have filled up a list of two or three hundred songs, but that puts you right back to thinking of it as daunting.

This list is made up of some classics, current hits and some quirky songs that should – at the very least – give you some inspiration.

The songs are in no particular order so, for your convenience, you can click on the column header arrows to sort the list by song title, genre or by year.
