    Hello everyone! :)

    My fiance and I are having such difficulty choosing our first dance song!! We are trying to find one that isn't too slow as would like a more upbeat feel good song but one that still has good lyrics and meaning.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thank you :) xxx

    What are your music tastes? Do you have songs that both of you like?
    Remember, it doesn't have to be slow, it doesn't have to be overly romantic, it should just mean something to the both of you.
    If I manage to persuade my fiance to have a first dance, it will be unusual, as we both love Metallica, Foo Fighters etc.

    Hi Kimberley,

    Generally speaking, a great first dance song should be one that means a lot to both of you. If you're asking here, though, it means that there's not one that stands out.

    I'm a wedding singer (and celebrant), so here's a few great ones, both popular and slightly more unique, that you might like to take a look at:

    Slower:
    Ed Sheeran – Perfect
    Ben Folds – The Luckiest
    SafetySuit – Never Stop (Wedding Version)
    Keith Urban – Only You Can Love Me This Way
    Josh Groban – You Raise Me Up
    Adele – Make You Feel My Love
    John Legend – All Of Me
    Aerosmith – Don't Wanna Miss A Thing
    Bette Midler – The Rose
    Elvis – Can't Help Fallin' In Love

    Slightly more upbeat:
    Michael Buble – Everything
    Ben E King – Stand By Me
    Turtles – Happy Together
    Drifters – Save The Last Dance For Me
    John Paul Young – Love Is In The Air
    Van Morrison – Moondance
    Barry White – My First, My Last, My Everything
    Ronan Keating – When You Say Nothing At All
    Jack Johnson – Better Together
    Jason Mraz – I'm Yours

    For something super modern and upbeat, you could even go with Jonas Brothers – What A Man Gotta Do, if you're feeling really energetic!

    By the way, if you still need someone to conduct your ceremony or sing that first dance song, give me a shout! I know someone who might be able to help. ;) Happy listening!
