30 Absolutely Perfect First Dance Wedding Songs

Wedding receptions are so much fun! There are so many highlights to look forward to. Introductions, cake (yum!), and of course, first dances. Part of having a fun reception is taking the time to choose songs carefully, and today I have some first dance wedding songs for the bride and groom. So fun!

30 First Dance Wedding Songs for a Reception for the Bride and Groom for Dancing | Hill City Bride Virginia Blog

It’s important to choose something meaningful to you as a couple, so anything goes for the first dance. Here are thirty favorites with the song title first and the artist beside it. My favorite? Well, I’m really into Queen right now, so I’d have to say Love of my Life – it’s the sweetest tribute by Freddie Mercury to his lifelong friend, Mary. I hope you have fun choosing!
