Let’s admit it: there are a few First Dance songs every single person on Earth has listened to at least a hundred times. And while these songs may be popular for a very good reason, the truth is that it is perfectly understandable why so many couples want to be completely unique with their wedding dance.
How to move beyond overused First Dance songs and really embrace your unique love story through a very special song? We have some suggestions for you – so read on if you need a little bit of inspiration.
- Otis Redding, Try a Little Tenderness. This song is the epitome of everything soothing, romantic and energizing at the same time. Mellow and beautiful at first and then a true explosion of energy and positive vibes, this tune is perfect for couples who want to create a truly special choreography for their wedding dance.
- John Legend, Stay With You. Everyone knows All of Me and how powerful it is – but if what if we told you that you can bring the same amount of power and romance into your First Dance song without playing the one John Legend tune everyone knows by heart? Stay With You is precisely what you need – so if you don’t know it yet, give it a chance. You will love it!
- Bob Dylan, The Man In Me. Are you into old-school songs that express the voice of a generation that really believed in the power of love? Bob Dylan is perfect with his romantic tunes and witty, tongue-in-cheek lyrics – and this song is the hard evidence for this. Look it up – there’s no way not to love it!

Your First Dance song should be magical, so that the moment itself is unforgettable and filled with beautiful emotions. What is the worst way to choose your First Dance song and how to avoid making any flagrant mistakes? Here are some tips you might want to keep in mind:
- Choose a song because it is in the charts. Yes, good songs usually reach the charts, but that doesn’t mean they will stand the sands of time. Moreover, it doesn’t mean you will like them today just as much as you will 20 years from now, watching your wedding recording.
- Choose a song because it feels romantic, before listening to the lyrics. Not all songs that sound slow and romantic are actually suitable for weddings – and the best example we can give here is I Will Always Love You, sang by Whitney Houston (a very beautiful song focusing on a breakup and not on a relationship filled with hope!).
- Choose a song on the spur of the moment. Your First Dance song is not something you randomly decide on by leaving the “shuffle” option turned on when listening to music at the gym. Sure, the right song may hit you this way – but don’t add it to the list just yet. Think things through and see exactly if it fits the big moment.
- Choose a song without considering the dance itself. If you are not very good with dancing, we highly suggest that you choose a song that’s easy to dance to. Everyone can learn a few basic steps – but it takes a little more experience to pull off complex choreographies, so it’s better if you just settle on a song that’s…danceable.

Thought you have to be a professional dancer or to hire a professional choreographer to pull off one of those fantastic, unforgettable wedding dances? Well, you were wrong – anyone can learn a few basic tricks and create a First Dance their guests will always remember.
Sure, it takes a bit of determination and practice – but love can really move the mountains, right? Here are some of the crucial elements to remember when creating the perfect dance for your wedding:
- Start on the right foot – or, better said, in the right pose. The leader’s left hand should be cupped under the right shoulder blade of the follower, while the latter’s right hand should rest upon the biceps of the leader. Further on, both of the partners should clasp their “free” hands together.
- You don’t need to learn very complicated dance moves for your wedding dance – the basic box step will definitely get you out of trouble, regardless of the song playing in the background. You can easily learn this dance step with online tutorials and a little time at your disposal – and you can absolutely pull it off even if you have never danced before.
- If you want to make your First Dance look and feel more spectacular, you can add a few easy tricks – such as the underarm turn or a dip. These dance moves are really easy to learn too, and they can definitely add that wow effect that will impress everyone invited at your wedding.
