Most popular first dance wedding songs

Picking your first dance song for your wedding is a big decision for lots of reasons. Whittling down and choosing a song that best reflects you as a couple can prove very difficult as there is a lot of choice out there! The question is, do you pick a classic lovey-dovey song or should you choose something nostalgic which will bring you back to when you first started dating? Nowadays there are also great uplifting and energetic songs to choose from.  Sometimes an uplifting song such as Ramones- Baby I Love You is a good choice as you don’t need to be an exceptional dancer you can just shuffle along on the floor.

Additionally deciding on a first dance song can more often than not depend on how good a dancer you and your hubbie are! There is nothing worse than an awkward robotic first dance so remembering that the key is to try to relax, forget everyone else is there and just concentrate on you, your partner and the song.
