A lot goes into planning for a wedding and simple tasks like selecting a great bride and groom first dance song can take up a lot of valuable time and it doesn’t even have to.

Take a look at some of my favorite first dance wedding song ideas I like to recommend to couples when they get stuck on picking one.

Bride and Groom First Dance Songs


1. “From The Ground Up” by Dan + Shay

If you are a fan of country music, this is a great choice for your wedding first dance song.

2. “Lovesong” by Adele

This remake of The Cure’s hit song “Love Song” sung by Adele is a great choice for first dance.

3. “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri

If you want tradition, then this is your best bet. This is probably the most popular song choice for first dance.

4. “True Companion” by Marc Cohn

This song was recommended to me by another couple that used it as their first dance song.

5. “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray LaMontagne

This one is a little bit more upbeat than a traditional first dance wedding song. You could really have a lot of fun with this one.

6. “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz

The lyrics to this song makes it the perfect first dance song.

7. “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” by Meghan Trainor feat John Legend

This song is great because it has such a modern feel to it.

8. “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran

Another one of the most popular wedding first dance songs of 2017 so far.

9. “Lady” by D’Angelo

If you like r&b music, this is a classic from the 90’s r&b music era.

10. “Faithfully” by Journey

Even in 2017, this song still makes for a great wedding first dance song.
