First Dance Songs

To say there are a lot of great “first dance” songs out there is an
understatement. To say that finding the _perfect_ first dance song can be
difficult is also an understatement. You want to pick a song that’s meaningful
to both you and your fiancé, but you also want to pick a song that matches
your wedding theme. I get it. But not to worry! Here’s a miniature list of
some fabulous songs that would work well for your first dance as a wedded
couple!

**Country Theme:** If you’re having a country-styled wedding, then you’ll want
to pick a country song. Country songs are great for rustic, outdoor weddings –
they add the perfect western-y touch to the atmosphere. Here are a couple
great choices:

* Making Memories of Us by Keith Urban
* Bless the Broken Road by Rascall Flatts
* Johnny and June by Heidi Newfield
* Lost in this Moment by Big & Rich (this was my husband and I’s first dance song!)
* Amazed by Lonestar (a great classic!)
**Vintage/Classic Theme:** For those of you going for a more vintage styled wedding, you’ll want a list of vintage styled songs. Well, not to worry! Here’s a very small selection of some really great classics!

* Everything by Michael Bublé (come on, who doesn’t love him!)
* Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra
* I Will by The Beatles
* Just the Way You Are by Billy Joel
* Wild Horses by The Rolling Stones
**Popular Songs for 2014/2015 Weddings:** If you’re on the hunt for a really popular 2014/2015 first dance song, than here’s the perfect list for you! There’s a large selection of genres, beats, artists, and styles, so you won’t be want for more!

* Power of Love by Celine Dion (I admit it… I used to belt this one out in the truck every time it came on the radio. It’s a beautiful classic!)
* A Lonely September by The Plain White Tees
* Be Mine by David Gray
* A Long and Lasting Love by Crystal Gale
* A Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins
Finding the perfect first dance song for you and fiancé to sway to doesn’t
have to be a wild goose chase. Narrow down your search by deciding what genre
of music you want, what tempo you’re looking for, and if you have a favorite
artist or band. Also, if you and your fiancé have an “our” song, than use that
one! If it’s not the perfect genre, that’s ok – it’s the meaning that counts
in the end!
