30 First Dance Songs For The Newlyweds

Choosing a song for your first dance can be daunting, especially if you and your sweetie pie don’t have a song that is distinctly “yours.” You might love Etta James’ soulful “At Last,” but guess what? So have countless other newlyweds. Choose a song that is unique, meaningful and reflects your couple “personality.”

We’ve got 30 awesome first dance songs that should inspire you to think outside of the box when it comes to choosing that special tune. Once you’ve agreed on a song, do a couple of practice runs at home. You’ll know it’s “the one” if you both get goosebumps! Check out our playlist on iTunes.
