I am having the most difficult time picking out and deciding on a first dance song. The ones I like I feel like are overplayed and idk what to do. What are your suggestions for first dance songs that maybe I haven’t thought of? I’m stressing out because my wedding is in 2 weeks. And we still have decided on one!

    Not super picky at all. We like country, but aren’t opposed to other genres either.

    We used Better Together by Luke Combs, I may be partial because he’s my fav, but I think it’s sweet. I also really like Prayed For You by Matt Stell, especially the acoustic version.

    I guess it depends on the mood you envision that first dance to be - do you want it slow and intimate, quick and playful, with meaningful lyrics or something like an instrumental version without words?


    Fiancé and I are choosing Married Life from Up because 1) it’s cute and different and 2) fiancé only knows how to do box step waltz and this works out well. Plus we didn’t want a long song - will have DJ fade out after about a minute and a half.

    We decided to go non-traditional, and have a fun, upbeat song for our first dance. Also, it really is "our song" for the last 3 1/2 years, so it's perfect. We're dancing to Shotgun Rider by Tim McGraw.

    Find a song that speaks to you and FH. It doesn't matter if it's overplayed. That just means that it's a perfect fit for a wedding. Nothing wrong with that. Smiley smile

    Just pick a song that represents the two of you and holds special meaning.

    I think we are using I cross my heart by George Strait. I haven't gotten that far into planning yet

    We used “Here Tonight (The Acoustic Sessions)” by Brett Young & Charles Kelly. I had never heard it used for a first dance song and it’s such a pretty, sweet song. It’s one of our favorites (both the acoustic & the regular versions).

    We used From the Ground Up by Dan & Shay. Perfect fit for a first dance, very sweet, and definitely not overplayed.

    We danced to an acoustic version of "Recycled Air" by The Postal Service. It was at one of their concerts my husband told me loved me for the first time. Smiley heart

    Here are a couple! first few are slow and the other ones are a bit more upbeat!

    Never Stop (wedding version) - SafetySuit

    Tiny Face (As You Are) - Will Currie

    You Are Mine (feat. Holley Maher) - Spencer Combs

    CLEAR - NEEDTOBREATHE

    Wildfire - Seafret

    With Me - Sum 41

    and then when in doubt you can always pick a Disney song! I know a couple who chose Beauty and the Beast as their first dance song!

    I've been crying like a baby lately when I put "This Too Shall Last" by Anderson East on. That quickly has become high up on our list of choices.
