Wedding Ideas: First Dance Songs (51-60)


“Oh – we’re over halfway there!  In the epic wedding song list of Claire!”

What can I say.  I love the Jovi.

More selections for your delectation!

51. Jason Mraz & Colbie Callait – Lucky

This song is so sweet, would be perfect for a chilled, slightly quirky couple.

52. Harry Connick Jr. – It Had To Be You

You can’t go wrong with a When Harry Met Sally moment, right?  Friends had this as their first dance and it was super sweet.

53. Stevie Wonder – For Once In My Life

Just unabashed joy.

54. Mama Cass – Dream A Little Dream

My teenage self definitely would have had this on the shortlist!

55. Train – Marry Me

This song is so very sweet, and is a track I’ve listened to a lot while wedding planning.  The video is cute, too.

56. Rascal Flatts – Bless The Broken Road

Love a good country moment!

57. Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On

For real, one of the smoothest vocals ever.  It would be a brave first dance choice, that’s for sure!

58. Taylor Swift & Ed Sheeran – Everything Has Changed

Sweet, light, hopeful – what a great way to start a marriage!

59. Starship – Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now

An eighties classic. From the movie Mannequin. Amazing.

60. Frank Sinatra – The Way You Look Tonight

Way to close us out, Frankie….

    The DJ accidentally played "let's get it on" at a wedding we went to as the couple walked down the aisle – and his family was uberreligious – and we all laughed our butts off!
