Wedding Dance Songs Favourites

Not all modern first dance songs stand the test of time. The current list of favourite wedding dance songs is based on songs wedding couples have chosen to dance to from as early as 1998. Some of them are old classics that are considered amongst the best first dance songs ever.

Favourite wedding dance songs are tunes that appear regularly in the list of potential first dance songs for around 45-50% of wedding couples. They have three things in common:

1. they are recognised by both the couple and the guests

2. the lyrics are suitable for and fitting to a wedding occasion

3. two in three wedding couples end up selecting from favourite first dance songs list

When I first started to put together this particular wedding dance songs list, it had only 20 songs. Over time these first dance song classics became 40, then 60 and more will come, for sure.

It's amazing how some of these tunes have stood the test of time as wedding dance songs. You cannot go wrong picking up from these tunes, be it modern first dance songs or good old classics.

If you take a look at the list, you'll be hard pressed to pick up only one. From Andy William's Can't Take My Eyes Off You to Billy Joel's I Love You Just the Way You Are, they are all lovely to both listen and dance to.

I can help you with your wedding dance songs selection. However, it's best the two of you come up with a list of tow or three songs you like as this would make it easy to decide what to go for.

Call or email Paul now using the details at the top of the page to discuss your favourite first dance songs for your wedding and to book lessons.
