Wedding First Dance Ideas


You want your first dance as husband and wife to be memorable. Couples agonise over music lists trying to pick out the song that is just for them, a song that has meaning, and will create that “awww” moment when you take to the floor.

To help you out dear Pink Frosting reader, I have come up with some suggestions just to get the ball rolling. I have broken them down into categories as I know romantic and mushy is not to everyone’s taste…

The Romantic:

  6. Have I Told You Lately – Rod Stewart
  7. Amazed – Lonestar
  8. Sway – Bic Runga
  9. All You Need is Love – The Beatles
  10. Night of My Life – Damien Leith


  1. Even When I’m Sleeping – Leonardo’s Bride
  2. Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me for Me) – Blessed Union of Souls
  3. She’s So High – Tal Bachman

  3. Are You Gonna Be My Girl – Jett
  4. Sweethearts Together – Rolling Stones (Fergie & Josh Duhamels’ wedding song)
  5. You’re Really Growing On Me – The Darkness

  1. I’m Yours, Jason Mraz
  2. Never Let Me Go – Florence & the Machine
  3. I Won’t Let You Go – James Morrison
  4. Together Forever – Jack Johnson
  5. Saving Grace – Pete Murray
  6. Free – Pete Murray
  7. LoveLoveLove – Avalanche City
  8. I’ll Be Your Man – James Blunt
  9. Marry You – Bruno Mars
  10. Just a Kiss – Lady Antebellum

Oh I just realised the order I put these songs in – it’s like a music chart conversation: “I’m yours, don’t let me go!” “I’ll never let you go! We’re together forever.” “Good because you are my saving grace, you make me feel free!” “I love, love, love you, I’ll be your man”. “I’ll marry you with just a kiss”…

And the song I love at the moment:

Gay Pirates – Cosmo Jarvis (this one brings a tear to my eye – I love it!)

You can spend hours, days, weeks and even months finding “the song” for your first dance, or you may be one of the lucky ones who already have your song – song that was playing when you first met or on your first date.  I loved trawling through all our music to find our song for the first dance, we’d spend our weekend just playing CD’s and whittling it down. In the end, our first dance was to Faith Hill’s Breathe. But ultimately the choice is yours and you should relax and have fun doing it. Go with what you like, what means something to you and what you can both dance to. I hope this compilation & Pink Frosting’s tips for your Wedding Dance helps you start the process!
