Selecting the best wedding first dance song can be a daunting task, but with a little bit of guidance, you can find the perfect tune that will set the tone for the rest of your special day. In this blog, we’ll discuss some tips on how to select the best wedding first dance songs. For some people, they already have a special song associated with their relationship. If that’s you, great! If not, don’t fear.
Start with a genre
Start by deciding on the genre of music you want to dance to. Whether it’s pop, rock, country, or jazz, choose a genre that resonates with you as a couple. It’s important to choose a genre that represents you as a couple and makes you feel comfortable and happy.
Consider the lyrics
The lyrics of a song can be just as important as the melody. Consider a song with lyrics that are meaningful to you as a couple. It can be a love song, a song that tells a story of your relationship, or a song that speaks to your shared interests.
Think about the tempo
When choosing your first dance song, consider the tempo of the music. You don’t want a song that’s too fast or too slow for your dance style. A good rule of thumb is to choose a song with a tempo that allows you to dance comfortably and confidently. Slow songs are very common, but don’t be afraid to choose a more upbeat option if it speaks to you!
Consider your dance style
Consider your dance style and the type of dance you want to perform. A slow dance, a waltz, or a choreographed routine? Choose a song that fits your dance style and complements your moves. As part of this, also consider your venue. What space are you working with? If you have a very small dance floor, for example, an enormous choreographed dance routine is likely out of the question.
Go with your gut
Ultimately, the best first dance song is one that makes you feel good. Choose a song that speaks to your heart and makes you both feel happy and in love. Don’t be afraid to go with your gut feeling, and remember that there is no right or wrong song.
Maybe, even after our tips, you still don’t have a good idea. Here are some popular wedding first dance songs to consider:

Start with the genre, consider the lyrics and tempo, think about your dance style, and go with your gut feeling. With these tips in mind, you’ll find the perfect song to start your happily ever after.
