First Dance Wedding Songs/Music


Before you get married you will have a chance to choose your first dance song.  This is the song you dance to with your spouse for the first time as husband and wife.  There are many considerations:

Are you going to take dance lessons?

Do you have a song that has special meaning to both of you?

Will you choose a contemporary song (Ed Sheerin, Adele) or a traditional song (Frank Sinatra/Tony Bennett)?

Do you want to dance the whole song alone or add the guests in the middle of the song?

We have compiled this list from hundreds of weddings we have performed at.  It is as varied as the brides and grooms we have played for.  There are songs from a variety of artists ranging from Taylor Swift to James Brown, Michael Buble to Keith Urban, Elvis Presley to Sade and The Goo Goo Dolls to Camera Obscura.  It’s your wedding and anything goes.
