First Dance Wedding Songs

Over the last three years or so I have witnessed some fabulous weddings, seen some epic first dances and heard all manner of first dance songs. It was only after a chat with my wife that we thought it might be nice to share some of these first dance wedding tunes with couples who are looking for inspiration for their own first dance tracks.
Okay, so in no particular order, here is the definitive list of First Dance songs (with direct links to view on YouTube) all of which I have heard at weddings over the years….it’s interesting to note just how many oldies are on the list:
