Romantic Songs For Your First Dance


The first dance between a married couple has become one of the biggest moments of a wedding. Couples can spend hours on just this moment if you count dance classes or choreographing a routine. We have gone over some tips for creating a wonderful first dance in the past. The biggest part of the dance is the music! If you’re looking for a song to showcase the love and passion of your relationship, you’ve come to the right place. Complete Weddings + Events Houston has created a list of some of the most romantic song choices for your first dance as a married couple.

Romantic First Dance Songs

These songs are in no particular order and this list is subjective! There are thousands of other romantic songs out there. There are also songs that aren’t traditionally romantic but may mean something special to you and your partner. Often, dancing to song choices like that can be way more romantic than any we have curated on this list. Without further ado, let’s dive in!

All of Me – John Legend

Could be considered “cliche” but still a powerful and romantic song that is popular as the first dance between couples.

Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran has been one of the most popular choices for first dance songs between couples since his emergence as a pop star.

Perfect – Ed Sheeran

Another one from Ed Sheeran. The man can write a good love song okay?

Blessed – Thomas Rhett

A slightly more upbeat song that has been popular!

Amazed – Lonestar

An older country love song but extremely powerful and still a popular selection.

One of the more different selections on the list, but a beautiful love song.

A timeless classic.

Beyond – Leon Bridges

A newer song, but absolutely beautiful and one of the more upbeat songs on the list.
