Introducing Mr & Mrs Slow Dance - Gorgeous Slow Songs for Your Wedding Day
Obviously music is an incredibly important aspect of your special day. That is why we have posts on everything from what to walk down the aisle to, be it traditional or contemporary to upbeat tracks and slow jams to play at your wedding reception. And this is all important, but the seminal song of the day is the one that comes straight after the words, “And now introducing, for the first time, Mr and Mrs…” It is your introduction to the world as a married couple, and even though you are surrounded by friends and family who shouldn’t be judging you, they will be. The key to choosing the song for your first dance is picking something that is timeless, fits you perfectly as a couple, means something to you, and encapsulates true love. There are two ways you can go with your first dance: Something slow and romantic, or something a bit more upbeat that you can really dance to. Here are our top five choices for a slow dance.
At Last by Etta James
Easily one of the most popular choices for a first dance, this song has appropriate lyrics accompanied by a gorgeous instrumental backing, and Etta James’ voice is flawless. It’s all about finally meeting the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, which is perfect for a dance with someone you’ve just made that very promise to.
The Way You Look Tonight by Michael Bublé
Your wedding day is mostly about love, but it’s also about being the most beautiful you will ever be. Well, until you get nominated for an Academy Award and have to attend the ceremony. Both the bride and the groom look like movie stars on their special day, so this is a great song for that first dance. But even though the title of the song focusses on appearance, the general theme of the song is pure love, so it mirrors the whole concept of the wedding day perfectly.
One Day Like This by Elbow
It’s easy to choose timeless classics that have been used for millions of first dances, but if you are more of a contemporary couple, you’d want to choose a song that matches that. “One Day Like This” by Elbow is the perfect bridge between classic and contemporary as it is a relatively new song, but it still has a timeless feel owing to Guy Garvey’s rich voice and the highly emotive orchestral backing track.
You Song by Elton John
Perfect for the couple from humble beginnings, this song tells the story of a man who doesn’t have much, but what he does have he is happy to give to his partner. Marriage is all about two lives becoming one, which makes this song perfect for your introduction. This is a great choice for the younger couple who is starting a life together knowing that love is more important than financial security.
When I Fall In Love by Nat King Cole
When two people make the commitment to get married, it’s because they want to spend the rest of their lives together. And of course they want to be in love that whole time, which is what Nat King Cole is singing about. The belief that true love lasts forever is a beautiful thing and the reason why the wedding industry is so successful. This song captures that belief with class and beauty.
