Client Picks: The Best First Dance Songs of 2021

At the start of the new year, I like to look back at the year that was and review the songs that my couples selected for the six most common formalities of their wedding reception: The Grand Entrance, The First Dance, The Father/Bride Dance, The Mother/Groom Dance, Cake Cutting, and The Last Dance. While there are several wedding music guides available, I find the real pulse of the best First Dance songs for 2021 come from my clients: real Pacific Northwest couples planning and hosting real Pacific Northwest weddings. So, without further ado…

Here are the top First Dance Songs of 2021, as selected by my couples:
