That is until you come to the first dance song. If you are struggling for inspiration take a look at this list of popular first dance wedding songs:

  • I don’t want to miss a thing – Aerosmith. This popular song seems to retain its top spot year after year in the wedding song choice. It was first heard as the theme song to Armageddon featuring Aerosmith’s lead singer’s daughter Liv Tyler.
  • A Thousand years – Christina Perri. Another featured in a blockbuster film, this song hails from the final Twilight film Breaking Dawn. This song appears during a beautiful reminisce scene rolling into the end credits.

  • At Last – Etta James. This 1960s classic still graces the wedding scene today. The song has also been covered by the likes of Celine Dion and Beyonce.
  • Truly, Madly, Deeply – Savage Garden. It won the 1997 ARIA Music Award in the categories Single of the Year and Highest Selling Single. Written and performed by the bands two members Darren Hayes and Daniel Jones. The song is also featured in the film Music from Another Room starring Jude Law.
  • Everything I Do, I Do it For You – Bryan Adams. From the popular film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves this song has become another popular choice as a first dance song. What more would you want from a film than Kevin Costner as the good guy – Robin Hood and Bryan Adams singing your love song (Ok, I might have drifted off for a moment there!)

  • You’re Still the One – Shania Twain is another award-winning song. It won both Best Country Song and Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
  • Grow Old with You – Adam Sandler. This is one for movie enthusiasts. Sung by Adam Sandler in his film the Wedding Singer this is a surprisingly sweet song in a comedy film featuring Adam himself and Drew Barrymore.
  • Come What May – Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman – Another song sung by two actors rather than a traditional singer. This one is featured in the film Moulin Rouge and again is a lovely sweet moment between the two characters in a film which deals with some dark and extremely sad topics.
