6 Songs That Are Perfect for Your Wedding’s First Dance, Reading, Ohio

A married couple’s first dance as husband and wife is an amazing moment. Because song choices range from upbeat tunes to soft melodies, you might want to speak with your DJ on which selection works best with your ceremony. Here are a few popular songs that will make your first dance one to remember.

6 Romantic Songs to Celebrate Your First Dance

1. “Better Together” by Jack Johnson

While he certainly delivers on the romantic sentiment, Jack Johnson offers a more down-to-earth version of romance for laid-back couples. “Better Together” evokes images of routine daily life, all of which is made better by the presence of love.

2. “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley

This song is a staple of most weddings, thanks to Elvis’s dulcet tones. It strikes a note of inevitability, as though all of the events in history had been leading up to the romantic moment where two became one. 

3. “Forever and Ever, Amen” by Randy Travis

If you want something a bit more upbeat, Randy Travis offers this adorable ode to long-term love. Married couples can imagine themselves in these roles—older and a little grayer—but still happy to spend each day together.

4. “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran

DJEd Sheeran relays a similar message in “Thinking Out Loud.” He states that his love is lasting and will be just as strong at 70 as at 23. For younger couples, this song is the perfect way to show that love will only get stronger as time passes.

5. “Everything” by Michael Bublé

With a reputation for being a romantic crooner, there are a number of Michael Bublé songs that work at weddings. “Everything” takes it a step further thanks to its message of devotion. To Bublé, his partner is his entire world. 

6. “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton

This song is an expression of undying affection from the musician to the woman of his dreams, which surely mirrors the husband’s thoughts on seeing his new bride. For couples, “Wonderful Tonight” is deliriously romantic and easy to dance to. Many DJs consider it a wedding classic for this reason.
