Best First Dance Songs for Wedding Dance


Wedding Dance First Dance Songs Lessons Instruction

Having a First Dance at your Wedding remains the #1 tradition for couples. In my experience with teaching hundreds of couples, most have no idea what their First Dance song should be... A lot of couples make the mistake of looking at other couples and see what's typical and asking what they 'should' do. My advice? Your Wedding Dance Song should feel like you! Your love is unique and your song should reflect that.

I've created a list of the most popular songs couples use for their First Dance AND these are easy to dance to. Plus, I've included what type of style they are so you can find one that matches the vibe you're looking for. P.S. All these options are Wedding Dance Instructor approved!
