Choosing a song for your first dance can be hard!


You may already have a song that means a lot to you, maybe from when you first met or a song that brings back wonderful memories. 


Your song should be special to you as a couple, have a good tempo (not too fast or too slow!) with meaningful lyrics.

When searching for a song, it's good to try to think of songs that have beat the test of time. If they've been on the radio for years, there's a good chance they will still be on the radio on your 10th or 50th wedding anniversary! Movies are also a really good place to look for inspiration.

If you're struggling to choose a first dance song, don't worry we have compiled a list of song ideas that all have a good tempo for dancing.


We hope this will help you find your perfect song!
