Have you ever heard a song that captures your love story? Or, maybe it expresses exactly how you feel about your significant other?

Most first dance songs give you warm fuzzy feelings. You choose them because they remind you of how much you love your spouse-to-be or see it as a declaration of love. Either way, your wedding playlist will be incomplete without that special track.
If you find yourself shuffling through Spotify to find the right one, we can help.

Here are the best first dance songs of the last decade:

Thinking Out Loud, by Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran’s song became an instant hit in our ballroom dance classes. Everyone declared it to be the track to play for their first dance. The odds are that you have watched newlyweds sway to this song at least once.
Despite its recurring appearance on the wedding dance floor, people can’t get enough of this soulful number. The sweet lyrics narrate the love between a couple who hopes to stay together forever. You can consider it as a wedding vow to love each other till you’re seventy.
Or an ode to eternal romance in general, making it the ideal start to your happily ever after.

A Thousand Years, by Christina Perri

It does not matter if you were part of the Twilight fandom or not. What matters is how you feel when you listen to this romantic track. The song perfectly describes the fluttery and jittery feelings engaged couples feel when the big day gets closer. You know, the one where you can feel butterflies in your stomach, yet you still muster the courage to walk down the aisle.
That’s you know that all your fears and doubts will ‘suddenly go away somehow’ when you see your partner. If that sounds like you, this is the song for your first dance.

All of Me, by John Legend

John Legend’s strong vocals and sincerity have made this simple song a wedding classic. The piano ballad lists all the reasons why he loves his wife, Chrissy Teigen.
What makes it different from other songs is its honesty. The song does not shy away from covering the rough patches of romance. That is why it resonates with many couples who have told each other that, áll me still loves all of you,’ despite the lows.

It’s a Wrap!
