Many wedding receptions have been delayed until it is safe and legal to gather in large numbers. So while you may have taken your vows in a small ceremony, there could still be some wedding planning to do for a future event. Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect first dance song.

  • Make sure the song is about long-term love. A good example is Dan + Shay’s “From the Ground Up”. Try to avoid songs like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”. Songs about a doomed relationship don’t match the occasion, even if he sings it in a sweet way.
  • Pick a song that relates to the wedding day in a positive way. “We’ve Only Just Begun” by The Carpenters reminds everyone that you view your new marriage as the beginning of something great. On the other hand, “Marry You” by Bruno Mars calls getting married ‘dumb,’ so maybe not a great selection.
  • Choose a genre that you love. There are great first dance songs in every genre. If you love country music, try something like “Then” by Brad Paisley. For soulful R & B lovers, “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys is a popular choice.
