The first dance at your wedding reception allows you to have a beautiful and touching moment with your new life partner in front of the people you care about the most. You’ll want to choose a song that is beautiful and meaningful, while also making you feel at ease on your feet. Here are a handful of popular and romantic tunes to consider for your big day. 

4 Song Ideas for the First Dance at Your Wedding Reception

1. “At Last” by Etta James

This jazzy, orchestral ballad features the emotive, bluesy vocal stylings of Etta James. You’re sure to get lost in your partner’s eyes as you sway across the dance floor to lines like, “At last the skies above are blue/ My heart was wrapped up in clover the night I looked at you.”

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

Wedding Receptions“Can’t Help Falling in Love” is another staple of wedding reception dance floors. It makes an excellent first dance with romantic lyrics such as, “Like a river flows surely to the sea / Darling so it goes / Some things are meant to be.” Plus, it’s hard to resist the crooning voice of The King.

3. “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran

If you want a more contemporary number for your first dance, go for Ed Sheeran’s chart-topping “Thinking Out Loud.” Despite the crowd of onlookers, you’re bound to feel absorbed in your own private moment with your spouse as you dance to lines like, “Take me into your loving arms / Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars.” 

4. “Amazed” by Lonestar

“Amazed” is another first-dance classic at wedding receptions. Lyrics like, “I don't know how you do what you do / I'm so in love with you / It just keeps getting better,” makes this romantic ballad the perfect wedding tune, especially if you and your partner are country music fans.
