Our 2017 Top Picks | 30 “First Dance” Songs


With editing being a part of our main job description, you best believe we get our fair share of Spotify song searchin + dance-parties-in-our-computer-chairs on. With all these favorites we’ve been collecting, we thought we’d put together a list for all you brides trying to nail down the perfect “first dance” option!

Some couples have “their song” already, because it’s something special or meaningful to them. But if you’re anything like me and my husband – we did not have a song and it took me our entire dating relationship to just accept the fact that it was OKAY not to have a song yet. We’ve got the rest of our lives to claim one as “ours”. And now when I think back to our wedding song, something so different/unique that wasn’t overoplayed, it takes me right back to our wedding day and those feelings.

Whether you want something more traditional, upbeat, country, alternative or something that your guests have never heard as a first dance song yet – we’ve got you covered!
