Top 10 First Dance Songs,… That won’t make you cringe!

One of the hardest parts of planning a wedding is choosing a song to dance to! Who would’ve thought?! I myself spent several days and nights trying to find THE first dance song for my wedding. But obviously you can never find anything great when you’re looking too hard. Am I right? And obviously you want to make sure that you choose a song that makes you feel good about all the memories of your special night, later on in your life.

So I decided to put a list of my all time favourite top 10 First Dance Songs together. I tried to avoid listing any “overplayed” songs (cough cough Thinking Out Loud cough cough)!

I would love to hear your thoughts? What song will you be dancing to?


10. Take That – Greatest Day

“Tonight this could be the greatest night of our lives
Let’s make a new start,
The future is ours to find
Can you see it, can you see it in my eyes
Can you feel it now, can you hold it in your arms tonight”


9. Ellie Goulding – Your Song

“I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is now you’re in the world”


8. Ben Folds – The Luckiest

“Now I know all the wrong turns the stumbles,
And falls brought me here
And where was I before the day
That I first saw your lovely face,
Now I see it every day
And I know
That I am, I am, I am, the luckiest”


7. Ronan Keating – This I Promise You

“My love, here I stand before you
I am yours now from this moment on
Take my hand, only you can stop me shaking
We’ll share forever, this I promise you”


6. Westlife – You Raise Me Up

“You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.”


5. Adam Levine – The Way You Look Tonight

“Some day, when I’m awfully low
When the world is cold
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight”


4. Enrique Iglesias ft. Whitney Houston – Could I Have This Kiss Forever

“Over and over I look in your eyes
You are all Idesire
You have captured me
I want to hold you
I want to be close to you
I never want to let go”


3. Journey – After All These Years

“And I’m proud of all the blessings
You have given me
The mountains we have climbed to get this far
You learn to take the laughter with the tears
After all these years”


2. ‘N Sync – This I Promise You

“And I will take
You in my arms
And hold you right where you belong
Till the day my life is through
This I promise you”


1. Michael Bublé – Hold on

“So hold on to me tight, hold on to me tonight
We are stronger here together than we could ever be alone
So hold on to me, don’t you ever let me go”
