Take a look at the ultimate wedding first dance playlist
Apart from worrying about tripping over your partner's feet you have some other tough problem to think about: your wedding first dance.
Music really is playing a major part on your wedding day: during the ceremony, your first dance as a married couple, father-daughter dance, first song to fill up the dance floor.
So you want to pick up the perfect tracks to set the mood throughout the day.
Maybe you're feeling a bit nervous and emotional, thinking all eyes are going to be on you two, but all I can say is choose with your heart and you'll love this moment forever, promise!
With so many great tunes out there, choosing the right one for your wedding first dance seems almost harder than finding your wedding dress..
Well, you want to find one that has a meaning to you as a couple, maybe the song that was playing in the background when you met first.
Or the one that reminds you of a memorable time in your story, or that simply just feels like it has the perfect vibe for two.
Some couples want a conventional choice, while others love the idea of a non-traditional one.
If you are one of those couples that are helpless romantic, you should look at some timeless, soulful tunes, that will make you want to hug each other and sway every time you listen to it again after your wedding day.
If you just feel like this choice was just a little too sappy for you, then maybe something more upbeat it's right up your street.
A song that will have the rest of your wedding guests wanting to get up, get on the dance floor and rock out!
Otherwise something that defines your relationship or that reminds you of a particular occasion, like your first holiday together, or a gig you've been to.
If you find it's still a hard decision to make, get your friends or family to help you creating your favourite wedding first dance songs list: they know your taste well.
Then narrow it down from time to time, during the wedding planning process and ask your partner about their advice too.
"At last" - by Etta James
This is my always favourite within the older classics, just timeless.
It has the power to make me dream whenever I hear it (and a crowd-pleaser too).
"1+1" - by Beyonce
I hear you, not a classic, but I love a good modern ballad for a first dance!
Because it's romantic and also a little sexy and it's definitely a tune..
" And it's me and you ..that's all we'll have when the world is through"
"Thinking out loud" - by Ed Sheeran.
I mean no wonder why this song is one of the current favourites chosen as a first dance track:
Ed played it at his own wedding.
It's about true love and being together forever with a modern twist
"All of me" - John Legend
He dedicated it to his wife, which he is so in love with..
isn't it this just the ultimate couple goal?
And basically doubles up as Vows exchange
"If I ain't got you" - by Alicia Keys.
Contemporary and classic, the lyrics are clearly all about the essence of love.
"I can't help falling in love with you" - by Elvis Presley
What a perfect old-school feel timeless track for an unexpected first dance song.
Simple, sometimes works for the best.
"A thousand Years"- by Christina Perry.
So popular that it has now officially taken over the podium as
"the" first dance modern song.
"Falling like Stars" - James Arthur.
Super romantic with truly lovely lyrics.
Those words couldn't be more perfect for a newly married couple .
"Happy" - by Pharrell
Is there any better song to dance to on your beginning of your happily ever after?
"No one" - by Alicia Keys
Yes, I confess.. I'm huge Alicia's fan but she has so many great
songs right? How to choose just one?
"Video Games" - Lana Del Rey.
Only for the couples that want to go out out..but it's honestly a hymn to being
deeply in love "I tell you all the time, Heaven is a place on earth with you".
"Your song" - by Ellie Goulding.
Last, but not least , this song was chosen as Will and Kate's first dance song:
it's actually a modern take to a classic Elton John's cover.
