Does anyone know of any alternative wedding first dance songs, I am trying to find a song that not to long, cheesy or a massive hit 20yrs ago.
I had boulevard of broken dreams by greenday for mine. And would recommend when it's time by them as well
Hi mine was Tim McGraw My best friend . It was the words in the song for us that meant so much to us . Xx
We had westlife - hello my love. Relevant for us and a 2019 release xx
Why dont you use a song from ur favourite programme / film that means something to you both? That's what we are doing.
We had sad song by we the kings
We had Fly Me To The Moon and a choreographed dance for ours!
George Ezra all my love is mine. Only 2 minutes something long and I love it xx
We had the script, never seen anything
I had Angel by Aerosmith as my first dance song. Just find one that's meaningful to you and your partner. I also walked down the aisle to When Love and Hate Collide by Def Leppard and out afterwards to the instrumental version of Bittersweet Symphony. Just go with whatever feels right, doesn't matter if it's cheesy or not, as long as it's meaningful to you.
We had Over and Over Again by Nathan Sykes, the words were perfect for us
We are having the one from 50 first dates. Grow old with you. X it's funny

Nickel back never gonna be alone we had for our first dance
We had The Lovecats by The Cure 😊 Just have something you enjoy! Something fun or meaningful or both!

We had you and I by Tom walker was perfect 🥰🥰 xxx

Are you in to the same music? What was on that you danced to in the clubs when you went out?
I always like the idea of getting your favourite song and then finding the acoustic version x
Metallica nothing else matters
We had Ameranthine by Ameranthe. Not a song I’d heard before my then hubby-to-be suggested it, it’s one of his fave groups. Now I love it. ❤️
We had Bring me sunshine by morecambe and wise
Lifehouse song everything, most personal song possible for us and he gifted me the lyrics in a frame on the day x
David Grey - This Year’s Love
I don't know if this is alternative or not, but we had I'm In The Mood For Love by Jamiroquai and Jools Holland. It was really upbeat to dance to.
I remember reading on here that someone had Beer by Reel Big Fish which sounded like a magnificent idea! X
We had a bit of ‘how long will I love you’ by Ellie Goulding, but didn’t play the whole thing..(too much slush 🤪) which merged into the Proclaimers ‘I wanna spend my life with you’.
How about something that’s just instrumental?
Plan your first dance around a particular piece so that way other guests join in part way and makes it less long.
Unfortunately I can’t think names off of the top of my head but it leaves room for looking at more song lists

Perfect for Me - Ron Pope
Birds of a Feather, We Rock Together - Vulfpeck
I Will Spend My Whole Life Loving You - Kina Grannis & Imaginary Future
Take My Hand (the wedding song) - Emily Hackett & Will Anderson
Obviously it's all personal taste, but just go with what feels right for you! If you guys have a favourite song, even if it's a bit of a crazy party tune, choose that! It's whatever means the most to you as a couple, it really doesn't have to be a love song or anything slow. I sang a song called Chicken Fried by Zac Brown for a couple at one of the weddings I did last year. That's a very unconventional song for a first dance but they absolutely loved it because it meant so much to them. Go with your heart ❤
Our first dance was brett Michaels all i ever needed. Our wedding band had never even heard of it so we knew it must be fairly unique
