15 of the best first dance songs ever!
No song is more important for your wedding day than the first dance choice! This is the song you will forever cherish as your first dance as a newly married couple and the main dance that will be caught on camera. Unless you have an obvious song that jumps to your mind, it can feel difficult choosing this pivotal song. Award-winning wedding DJ Mike Readings not only knows good music, but he has seen his fair share of weddings, so sit back and check out his top choices for this important song.
Your first dance song has a lot of expectations, it must be intimate and romantic, as well as meaningful to you as a couple. Additionally, you also want it to reflect your relationship up to this point, with a touch of hope and anticipation for what your married life will hold. This will also likely be the first moment the newlywed couple can take a moment to just enjoy being together.
Every couple is different, and the right song will need to express something personal to you. Perhaps you are looking for something romantic and classic, something that packs a punch, or maybe even a song that will have everyone in the reception dancing alongside you! If you have the same taste in music genres, this may be a simple choice, but what if your musical preferences are at opposite ends of the spectrum?

Expert advice from Jayne at Icon Dance Lessons:
Your First Dance as newlyweds should be memorable, not nerve-wracking. As you take your first steps to the music that will become 'your song', you will want to do so with pride, happiness and natural confidence. Guess what.... this is easier than you might think, with a little help!
It doesn't matter if you are an experienced dancer, or have never taken a step before, I believe that everyone can and should thoroughly enjoy their wedding dance.
I like to run light hearted lessons, to make your learning easy and good fun. From the elegantly simple to the highly choreographed, your wish is my command.
Dancing is a great activity for couples and often becomes something they enjoy throughout their lives. One of the nicest parts for me is creating each dance to suit the couple. I like casting a little magic spell, ha ha! It can be as easy as you like and still look wonderful, I promise.
Music of your choice is provided when you learn with me, so you need only bring yourselves.
A few tips:
✅ Always best to wear shoes similar to those you'll wear on the day, and clothes you can move in freely.
✅ Listen to your chosen song lots. The more familiar you are with it, the easier you'll find your place in the music.
