Choosing a first dance wedding song can be a bit of a minefield. If you’re one of those couples who just don’t have ‘a song’, help is at hand! Check out our bumper list of perfect first dance wedding songs.

Choosing a first dance song can be a completely different experience for couples. For some, it’s an easy breezy affair as ‘our song’ perfectly fits the bill. For others, somehow Gangnam Style¬†just isn’t going to cut it. Plus, you love Westlife and he’s more of a Jay-Z man, so how exactly do you land at the perfect choice?

Over the last years I’ve photographed hundreds of wedding so to lend a helping hand, I’ve put together a list of 75 perfect first dance wedding songs my couples have used, with something for every taste, style and genre.

So take half an hour together and listen to our top picks, with (hopefully) at least one of them meeting your demands for your first dance wedding song.
