My Favourite First Dance Songs

The first dance is an iconic moment of any wedding. It's the moment that the bride and groom share a truly intimate moment, alone yet in front of all their guests.

The song they choose reflects their personalities, their relationship dynamic, and their love for one another.

So how do you choose the right song? One that you both like is a good place to start! One that speaks to you both. There's a lot of beautiful songs that speak of love, but some are rather overused in my opinion. Ed Sheeren is probably the best example. Don't get me wrong; I adore Thinking Out Loud! But so does *everyone else* so to me it's not special anymore.

So on that note, here are two lists for you! The first is a list of more cliché first dance songs that I like, and the second is a list of more alternate songs. Some are still romantic, but some are for a more specialist taste :p
