Wedding Ideas: First Dance Songs (31-40)

The series continues!  I enjoy nothing quite as much as a good trawl through YouTube looking for songs for our playlist, and especially thinking all about the important first dance....

31. Paul Weller - You Do Something To Me

I love this song - gently romantic and so, so sweet.

32. Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World

This song is like hot chocolate - soothing, sweet, and warm you up from within.

33. Air - You Make It Easy

Moon Safari is one of my very favourite albums and this song is just lovely.

34. Madness - It Must Be Love

This would be such a fun first dance!  Silly and 80s and sweet - a great combination!

35. Bob Marley - Is This Love

I can't recall this being used at any weddings I've attended, but I think this would be a lovely first dance song.

36. Take That - Rule The World

Friends of ours used this song and it brought a tear to the eye.  A big, sweeping song.

37. Lonestar - Amazed

I read somewhere that this song has been in the top five first dance songs in the UK since its release in 1998.  As a country fan this makes me very happy!

38. DJ Sammy & Yanou - Heaven (Candlelight Mix)

Who would have thought a dance track covering a Bryan Adams song would yeild such a sweet, beautiful mix?  I think this would be a lovely first dance.

39. Aqualung - Brighter Than Sunshine

This song (and this band, really) gives me the warm fuzzes. Such a sweet lyric, such an optimistic beginning to a married life together.

40. Andy Williams - Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You

Perfection - and so great for a couple who were feeling nervous about a first dance - everyone *has* to join in on this one!


  1. I absolutely love "Amazed" by Lonestar. It gives me tears in my eyes every time I hear it! My cousin was married this past July and her first dance was to Michael Buble's "Close Your Eyes."

  2. I actually haven't heard most of these! We didn't do the big shebang, but if we had theme music, I'd probably pick something from Sir Paul.

  3. That Paul Weller song is one of my happy places. :)

  4. The series continues! I enjoy nothing quite as much as a good trawl through YouTube looking for songs for our playlist, and especially thinking all about the important first dance.... songs wedding


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!
