25 Modern Love Songs For Your First Dance

25 Modern Love Songs For Your First Dance

When selecting your song to dance in front of your family and friends, you must consider a few aspects of the song:

  1. What is the tempo of the song?  The faster the tempo, the more practice you will need before the big day.

  2. What genre of music do you like?  If you like R&B, review R&B love songs.  If you like Country, take a look at Country wedding song lists.

  3. What will be the length of the song?  Even though a song is typically three to four minutes long, your DJ should have the skills to shorten the song so that it is not obviously cut short.  You can shorten songs to two to two and a half minutes.

But what if you don’t have a song with special meaning that you want to dance to at your wedding?  This is when the search begins.  Many couples start on streaming music services such as Spotify and Pandora.  Others talk with their DJs about possible songs or visit websites like My Wedding Songs as a resource of song suggestions.

To make your selection process a bit easier, enjoy our list of 25 modern love songs that will give you and your guests goosebumps.

When selecting your first dance song, be sure to review the lyrics to verify the song represents your love story.  Not all love songs are created equal.

Lastly, the first dance typically takes place after the grand entrance as the wedding party surrounds the dance floor. However, you could also dance as the first formal dance after the meal is served and guests have completed eating.
