Choosing the perfect song for your first dance can be a big challenge. There are hundreds of lists online with suggestions for love songs, first dance songs and alternative tunes – it can be a little overwhelming. In a bid to help, we’ve put together our 10 favourite first dance songs that were chosen by our real couples.
The Script: I’m Yours
Ellie Goulding: How Long Will I Love You
Paolo Nutini: No Other Way
Aerosmith: I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing
Ed Sheeran: Tenerife Sea
Red Jumpsuit Apparatus: Guardian Angel (acoustic)
Walk the moon: Shut Up And Dance
Red Hot Chilli Peppers: Hard To concentrate
Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
John Legend: All of Me
(This one stands out in our memories. Part way through the song the DJ looked worried and it cut off. When the music started up again it was a Salsa from ‘The Fast and Furious’ – all planned by Allison & Mike who burst into a choreographed dance!)
After the first dance (and usually a cheer from your guests) everyone starts piling onto the dance floor. With a bit of help from Bruno Mars, Tina Turner and the Spice Girls you’ll have an evening to remember.
