As you know, we’ve been around the wedding block a few times, and one of our favourite moments during the reception is watching you and your sweetie sway to your romantic and perfectly-you first dance song.
Over the years we’ve compiled our favourites, and we’ve decided to share that with you today! Without further adieu, I give you..
The Whimlet’s Guide to Underrated but Awesome First Dance Songs!
Stay With You – John Legend
First up on the list is a beautiful John Legend song. No, not that one, though we do really like All Of Me. This one is called ‘Stay With You’ and is all about the commitment between a couple and that the road to happily-ever-after is often fraught with ups and downs, but through it all they stay together.
We’ll also accept the Tarrus Riley version!
No One – Alicia Keys
There’s no denying it – this song is bomb-diggity and we love us some Alicia Keys! This song is about the deepening of love within a relationship, and that at the end of the day, all you need is each other. How can we not love this sugary sweet ballad?
A Thousand Years – Christina Perri
We love the sugary sweet lyrics affirming that you’ve loved each other forever, and will continue to love each other for a thousand years more. What more needs to be said?
Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You – Lauryn Hill
Bow down for Queen Lauryn! We love this modern ballad as an awesome first dance song! This song is perfect for any couple hoping to inject an upbeat vibe into their first dance!
Your Song – Ellie Goulding
Ellie Goulding’s lovely voice lends itself to a remake of the classic Elton John hit, Your Song, and we’re obsessed! It has the perfect vibe for a modern, romantic first dance, or even has the thematic music to any wedding video.
We have tons and tons of awesome first dance songs that we love, and we’re sure that you do, too! Drop us a line and let us know what you think of our list, and tell us your favourite awesome first dance songs, too!
