The Best First Dance Songs for 2022


Welcome back #BridalCoutureBrides <3

This week, I thought we could talk about the best first dance songs that are sure to make an unforgettable moment. Music is an important part of almost everyone’s day-to-day life. If you’re anything like me, you might even say that sometimes you pretend your life is a movie and create your very own soundtrack….. Just kidding! (maybe 😳). Anyways, I think we can all agree that music is v e r y important. With that being said, your first dance song should be even more important.

Your first dance on your wedding day is an intimate and special moment between you and your significant other. So, of course, you need to find THE perfect tune that will be sure to make all of your guests swoon. From the classic Ed Sheeran to kickin’ it old style with Rod Stewart, your options are never ending!
