Bride And Groom First Dance Songs: A comprehensive list to help you choose.

The First Dance of the Bride and Groom at a Wedding Reception is the one moment that everyone will have all eyes and ears on the Bride and Groom. Relish the moment, it’s one that you and your friends and family will always remember. When you’re picking your song, keep in mind that lyrics are important, but above all, the song should be one that really means something to you as a couple. We wrote another article a while back that goes into more detail about choosing your First Dance Song, and also gives some Song choices that might not be found on the list below, go check it out here: Choosing The First Dance Song Article

Here’s a list of 62 unique Songs for the Bride and Grooms First Dance. We compiled them from 97 Brides and Grooms who hired our DJ services in 2010. Obviously, several Brides and Grooms chose the same song as other couples, but to have 62 unique choices across 97 weddings is great and it shows how unique most peoples taste in music really is. Go to Youtube and search for the song by artist and title and listen to the song if you aren’t familiar with it.

We hope you find a song that works for you, and if not…pick something totally unique to you and your fiance and feel free to comment on this post with other suggestions for First Dance Songs, we’d love to hear from you!
