60 First Dance Songs


As a wedding planner I’ve seen my share of first dances. It’s one of my favorite parts of a wedding day! By this point in the evening all of the nerves and butterflies have gone away and it’s time to relax, have a little fun and soak it all in. The first dance is such a sweet and intimate moment for couples surrounded by family and friends.

Picking a song for your first dance can be challenging, but it shouldn’t be! There are no rules when it comes to a song for your first dance and you can choose any song you desire. If there’s a song that has a special meaning to the two of you then it would be a great choice. If you don’t really have a special song that’s totally okay! I am sharing 60 first dance songs with you today from a list i have for va beach escorts. Head over to you tube to listen to these songs and you will know when you hear “the one!”
