Music is the most important element of the wedding party and it is clear it cannot lack, but the way you open the party is equally important as it will set the mood for the rest of the night, so choosing a good first dance wedding song is a serious task you are not allowed to treat superficially.

The first dance is usually romantic, slow and with an emotional message. But that does not mean there is a set rule to that. If slow dances do not represent you at all, then feel free to show your personality on the dance floor.
However, there are a few songs that never fail and that you can go for without any fear that you will make a complete fool out of you. Therefore, we will write them down for you to consider and choose.
We begin with one of our personal favorites: ‘Angels’ sung by Robbie Williams. It is a quite sentimental pop song that expresses deep feelings that match the concept of marriage like a glove. Furthermore, the rhythm allows you to blend slow moves with others of a bolder nature.
Another love song (this time for the country music lovers) that would make a good choice for the first dance is ‘I Cross My Heart’ by George Strait. It is not as common as Shania Twain’s ‘From This Moment’, for instance, but it will make a great choice for those of you who want to surprise their guests and still have a suitable first dance song.
A beautiful alternative rock ballad will be the ideal song to dance to for a couple that loves the rock music. As such, ‘Hold You In My Arms’ by Ray LaMontagne is definitely an option to consider.
The emotional message of the song magically blends with the sound of the guitar making it as appropriate as it can be for a first dance. Michael Buble’s voice is sure to touch even the strongest of hearts, so opening the party with ‘Everything’ is another good option for you.
If you are not sure about what is the most appropriate song for your first dance you could also ask for the opinion of a DJ that has played in many weddings. Of course, do not forget to rehearse. Take a few dance lessons so that your moves will appear natural on the wedding day.
