These Are the 15 Most Popular Wedding First Dance Songs
Did yours make the list?
Couples have a lot of decisions to make when it comes to planning a wedding—some more important than others. But years after the “I dos,” when the flowers have dried and the cake has long since been eaten, the first dance song remains. You hear it on the radio, in the grocery store, and even in your head when you think back on that magical day.
It should be a song that’s both easy to dance to and reflective of the bride and groom’s relationship. It should be both timeless and catchy, romantic and joyful. It’s a difficult balance, which is why so many couples land on the same tried-and-true songs
A recent survey of more than 900 married people by The Black Tux found that the most popular wedding first dance song is a certified oldie. At more than 50 years old, “Unchained Melody” by The Righteous Brothers was the top song choice, followed by “All of Me” by John Legend and “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith.
