Top 10 First Dance Songs for your 2019/20 Wedding

Top 10 First Dance Songs

Top 10 First Dance Songs. Choosing your first dance for your big day can be a daunting task. Richer Music is often asked what options we could suggest for a couple's first dance together.

We believe that no two couples are the same and therefore a first dance always has to be an individual decision based on a song that is dear to the both of you. However, if you are stuck on ideas and wish to see what is popular, Richer Music has compiled a list of the Top 10 First Dance Songs.

Thinking of having a band perform your first dance? We have a huge range of bands that would be more than happy to learn your first dance for your big day!

No. 10 - Amazed by Lonestar

In at number 10 is American Country Music group "Lonestar". The song which will be 20 years old in 2019 is still one of the most played songs at a wedding and is bound to bring on the waterworks of both the older and younger generations.


No. 9 - Better Together by Jack Johnson

Filling the No. 9 spot is something a bit more upbeat with Jacks Johnsons 'Better Together'. Released in 2005, Better Together has had over 236 million plays on Spotify!


No. 8 - Everything by Michael Buble

Let's face it, who does not love a bit of Michael Buble! Michael Buble is always popular at a Wedding.

With the perfect opening to a first dance song, who can be surprised this song is so popular.

And in this crazy life and through these crazy times 
It's you, it's you 
You make me sing…


No. 7 - I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz

I won't give up is another song that will just take you back to a tear-jerking moment. With over 344 million plays on Spotify, its a regular at all weddings!


No. 6 - Make You Feel My Love by Adele

We could not have had a first dance suggestion without Adele being mentioned. Adele has produced so many great hits but this one really stands out as a firm wedding favourite.


No. 5 - A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

A Thousand Years has had over 1.12 billion views on YouTube. Enough said!


No. 4 - All Of Me by John Legend

All of Me has been a firm favourite at many weddings over the years since it was first released. The music video alone is fantastic let alone being the perfect song for a first dance.


No. 3 - You are The Best Thing by Ray Lamontagne

The perfect upbeat and happy first dance song for any wedding. Ray has hit the nail on the head with both a heartfelt and happy song for every first dance.


No. 2 - At Last By Etta James

At Last has stood the test of time and has been a hit since its release in 1960!


No. 1 - Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran

No first dance countdown would be complete without the truly talented Ed Sheeran. Not only is the video to this song absolutely amazing but its also one of THE most played songs at a wedding. Thinking Out Loud has had over 1.2 billion hits on Spotify alone. We think this song is going to remain one of the first dance song choices for many years to come.
