Bride Groom Dance Melbourne Reception

Five Beautiful Wedding Songs for Your First Dance

Every newlywed couple remembers their first dance together as a special and memorable occasion. A memorable, passionate hug that cements the husband and wife's love and longing for one another and demonstrates their dedication to one another in front of their guests (as if they didn't already know!). This is one of the most exciting parts of the ceremony, but it can also cause tension if the bride and groom have different musical tastes despite having many other interests in common.

This is perfectly normal; not every pairing needs to begin with a shared appreciation for Red Hots. Because of this, we at Vogue Ballroom have compiled a list of stunning wedding music that any couple is sure to adore and want to hear during their first dance.

  1. Ed Sheeran, “Thinking Out Loud” – Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, which has a slow, emotional tune and lyrics that portray the eternal attachment of a husband and wife to one another, has become a worldwide smash. Not a single one of your guests will be able to watch this without crying.
  2. Al Green, “Let’s Stay Together” – The R&B classic with a smooth rhythm that Al Green released in 1971 is ideal for setting the tone and getting people on the dance floor for the first time. What could be more appropriate for getting a marriage off to a good start than a song with loving, sensual lyrical set to a groovy groove?
  3. John Legend, “All of Me” – Your parents will be sobbing over their pan-roasted lamb with spice crust while they listen to this heartbreaking ballad by John Legend. Lyrically, "All of Me" is a perfect choice for a memorable first dance because of its promises of commitment and love even in challenging circumstances.
  4. Queen, “You’re My Best Friend” – Seriously, though, who doesn't adore this timeless masterpiece from one of the greatest bands in history? This song has the perfect amount of charisma, vitality, and passion for a wedding first dance. This is a win for the bride and groom and for the reception as a whole, so your guests will be clapping and dancing.
  5. Etta James, “At Last” – The most passionate tune ever written? The possibility is there. Whenever a guy in a movie sees the girl he can't help but fall in love with walk into the room, this is the music that plays in his head. Additionally, it is an ideal choice for a first dance song, as it is conducive to close embraces and tender holding. Its smooth, flowing motion has a mystical quality.

FAQs About Wedding Songs

Go With a Great Live Band That Can Play a Wide Variety of Songs

Booking a fantastic band is a certain way to get the party started. Find a band that plays a wide range of music styles if you want to get people on their feet and dancing. Your older relatives (and maybe even some of the younger ones) might not enjoy dancing to 90s rock and pop music, so a band with a varied repertoire is the safest bet.

Don’t Fear the Crossover

Styles of popular, country, and rock music. Hip-hop. What links these seemingly disparate musical styles together (besides from a chart-topping single by Nelly, of course)? Any of these songs would fit well in at a wedding celebration. A wedding can have music from any era or style. What makes people joyful and get them in a dancing mood is of utmost importance. It stands to reason that you would have access to the entire range.

If you want the guests to get up and dance, it's best not to start the music right after dinner.

After two or three hours of sitting, guests are ready to get up and mingle after dinner and speeches have concluded; dancing is typically saved for later in the evening.

If you want to get the most out of the band's performance, leave at least an hour between supper (or speeches) and the start of their first set.

Map Out the Room

If you're having a dance, ensure the band isn't too far away and that there aren't any tables blocking the way. The value of positioning the band right in front of the dance floor cannot be overstated. What makes a concert special is the buzz created by the interaction between the musician and the audience.

Collect Requests in Advance

Guests may be more inclined to stay on the dance floor if they are able to request songs they particularly like. What's the most effective strategy to handle inquiries? Your wedding website should provide a place for visitors to submit song suggestions for the reception. You can then evaluate them (in case your obnoxious relative decides to include that song he knows you loathe) before sending them on to your musical expert. Bandleaders and DJs often exclusively play songs requested by the bride and groom during receptions, and they may be reluctant to play requests from guests.
