Finding your perfect first dance song can be a difficult decision for you and your partner to make and we completely understand how daunting it may seem to get up and dance in front of all your friends and family.

As one of the leading party bands in London we know that it can be stressful to try and pick the perfect song for your big day. That’s why we’ve put together a little guide to help you pick out your perfect jam and get your groove on for your first dance as a married couple!

Make It Meaningful

It goes without saying that you will want your first dance to be a meaningful one, so try to pick a song that means something to both of you.

This might be a song that you both love, or maybe has some kind of significant meaning to the both of you and your relationship. It is ultimately your choice of song, so don’t worry about your guests view on the song that you decide on.

To make it even more meaningful and tailored to suit your wedding, get a live wedding band to perform the song for you. It will add that little extra personal touch to a special moment, and your guests will enjoy the live music too!

Make It About You

Whether you are quite a traditionalist when it comes to your relationship or a little rebellious and edgy, make the song reflect your personalities.

Traditional first dances are meant to be graceful and elegant, so choose a song such as “Moondance” by Van Morrison or “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra to keep the classic theme included in your wedding day and waltz your way around the dance floor with your significant other to the claps and “ahh’s” of your wedding party!


For all you jokers and rebels out there who want nothing more than to make a statement as soon as you hit that dance floor. Try adding a bit of comedy into your first dance by incorporating a song which makes your wedding party sit up and take note. “Love is Strange” by Mickey and Sylvia is a good example of a lesser known song which will intrigue your guests!

Make it Contemporary

If you are having a more modern wedding, you don’t have to stick with having a golden oldie for your first dance.

Feel free to scour the charts for a song that sticks out for you both and dance the night away to some of the most popular tunes around at that point in time. Have a look through some of Michael Buble’s back catalogue and see if there’s anything suitable, or why not choose a more poppy tune like Beyonce’s “Love on Top”?

We hope that some of these ideas have been helpful in helping you select your first dance song for your big day. The most important thing is that you and your partner have the best day of your lives, no matter what song you choose. Your first dance is all about the two of you, and as long as you both enjoy the song, nothing else should matter.
