50 First Dance Songs | Music Monday

Happy new week KV lovers! Today we are bringing back the “Music Monday” style post where as the name implies, we focus on music, a good selection to consider for your wedding. Today we would be going all out and naming 50 First Dance Songs you might totally want to consider. I personally have had a good time just listening to many of these songs…what can I say, I love LOVE songs!

First Dance Songs

These songs have been submitted by real brides who actually played them as their first dance songs. Retrieving this selection was pretty easy; I asked these brides/wives on both my personal Facebook and a wedding Facebook group I’m a part of. With excitement the comments started flooding in with their choices and some with the reason for their choices.

This list of 50 First Dance Songs are all of the response I retrieved and I have presented the songs with the artists and also the year they were released. They have been arranged by year, then Artist. For those thinking of a vintage wedding style with some serious old school music, you might want to start from the very top of the list!

Happy song selection!
