SONG SELECTIONS

Looking for the best songs for your First Dance? The following playlist of First Dance song ideas contains both my picks, as well as the selections that hundreds of my Rock Star Couples danced to at their wedding reception.

While it is strongly recommended that each couple selects a song that is personal and special to them (and there are thousands of song ideas that would work!), it sometimes can be difficult to pinpoint a song that has that sentimental meaning. For those struggling to find the right song for this much anticipated moment, the following is a curated playlist of songs that are perfect for your First Dance as newlyweds!

Enjoy the list of First Dance song suggestions below, and as always, a Spotify playlist is included at the end for your listening enjoyment!
