So it’s time to pick your first dance song, the last formality of the day before the party really kicks in and you can let your hair down. This, however, can be a difficult decision, especially if you and your special someone don’t share the same taste in music. 

But fear not, we are here to help! 

We’ve gone through the archives and collected our top 20, most requested first dance songs from the last year. You’ll find everyone from Ed to Elvis and everything from pop hits to timeless classics. 

Whether you are looking for a traditional slow dance like ‘At Last’ by Etta James or something more upbeat like Walk The Moon’s ‘Shut Up And Dance’ there really is something here for everybody.

First Dance Chalkboard

Feeling brave? A pre choreographed first dance always goes down a storm, especially if you can keep it a secret from your guests until the big day. In our experience, this is a great way to add an extra spark to the first dance formalities and make it a real moment to remember!
