Our First Dance Favorites

Hey Honeys!

We know how difficult it is trying to pick the perfect song for the perfect day. We put together the ultimate list of songs that our first dance favorites! Hopefully you'll find ones that won't be heard at each wedding you attend this year! Enjoy :)

 

 

1) "Can't Help Falling in Love" by Haley Reinhart 

We are obsessing over this Elvis Presley cover right now! It's the perfect combination of slow instrumentals and powerful vocals that will bring the guests watching to tears as the bride and groom waltz across the dance floor. 

 

2) "Only You" by Joshua Radin

First of all, Joshua Radin is a favorite artist of mine. Second, this is an uncommon, and beautiful choice that will definitely stick out from other soft first dance songs!

 

3) "Marry Me" by Train

Who doesn't love Train?! Also, he asks the girl to marry him each and every day. You cannot get more romantic than this!!

 

4) "Together" by Brandon and Leah

Brandon is Caitlyn Jenner's son and is in a duo with his high school sweetheart and now wife, Leah. Fangirling about the backstory aside, the song itself is about the going through life together with your partner. Very Sweet!

 

5) "Mess Is Mine" by Vance Joy

 Sweet folksy sound + strong vocals + an uncommon pick = great choice!

 

6) "Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran

I couldn't resist putting one of the king of romance's songs on here. This song, besides being perfect, has a great buildup, which I think is necessary for a first dance song. 

 

7) "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

This is a cute song that one probably wouldn't think to consider.. Hear me out and give this one a chance! It's a fun, quirky choice for those couple's looking for a more upbeat first dance!

 

8) "Work Song" by Hozier

I went to a wedding recently that used this as their first dance choice and loved it! Tugging at the depths of your heart when you think about having your loved one come back from the grave for their beloved.. 

 

9) "XO" by John Mayer

Okay, so John Mayer is obviously bae, but then he covered a Queen Bey song? The feels...

 

10) "Yellow" by Coldplay

We have all heard this one. Have you actually listened to the lyrics though? Try to find more truly romantic words than: "For you, I'll bleed myself dry". Perfect choice for professing your love on the dance floor.

 

I hope you found a few songs that would fit your perfect day! Comment below with the song that you and yours truly chose for your first dance. We'd love to hear all the great options :)

'Till next time, Honeys!

Sweetly,

H&T
