Music can change the atmosphere in a room. This is why choosing a wedding song is such an important part of the big day. For some, they’ve known what their wedding song was going to be from the moment they met their partner. They might have heard that song the day they met, or when they officially fell in love. For others, they need a bit of help, and trying to find one song that encapsulates their relationship can be tricky. Whether you’ve chosen to use a live band or a DJ at your wedding, the biggest decision is what your first dance song will be.
The top wedding dance songs of 2023 to help you decide.
Nervous by John Legend
When you walk through the door / And you look in my eyes / Yeah, it feels, yeah, it feels like the very first time / I can fall for you forever, I’m certain / ‘Cause I still get nervous.
If I Fall In Love by Ali Gatie
‘Cause your smile takes me places I’ve never been / It could travel continents, in our love, I’m confident / ‘Cause your eyes make me see things I’ve never seen / Baby, it’s just you and me, you’re part of my destiny.
Sweet Nothing by Taylor Swift
They said the end is coming / Everyone’s up to something / I find myself running home to your sweet nothings / Outside, they’re push and shoving / You’re in the kitchen humming / All that you ever wanted from me was sweet nothing.
Symphony by Imagine Dragons
‘Cause this life is one big symphony / This night is one for you and me / I’m the strings and you’re the timpani / You’re my constant tambourine / This life is one big symphony / So glad I’ve got you next to me / I’m the chords and you’re the melody / This life’s one big symphony.
You by Dan + Shay
Baby, standing here with you / With your arms around my shoulders / We’re dancing with the moon / And, baby, it feels just like a dream / When I whisper that I love you / And you say it back to me / I got you for the rest of my days / In the sun of Sunday morning or the pouring rain / I got you for the rest of my life.
Woke Up in Love by Kygo, Gryffin, Calum Scott
You found me all messed up / You found me down on my luck / So lost, but then I woke up in love / When I was chasin’ highs / You went and saved my life / You picked me up, thank God I woke up in love.
There are three things to take into consideration when choosing your perfect wedding song. One: what meaning does it have to you? Sometimes the song might not even be that romantic, but if it’s a song that always makes you think of each other, that can mean more than the words. Two: the lyrics. If you don’t have a song in mind already, look for something where the lyrics resonate with you and remind you of your relationship. Three: the music. How does the music sound? How does it make you feel? Close your eyes and imagine yourself dancing with your partner on your wedding day. You’ll know right away which song is best for you.
