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!

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.
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).
