10 Wedding First Dance Songs

#1 The Wedding Song - Angus & Julia Stone

This is a truly sweet song by this brother and sister duo from Australia. The words are just really beautiful and fitting and makes this one of those perfect wedding first dance songs.

It is available on the Itunes Australia store and a cover version is available for free here.

#2 Shelter - Ray Lamontagne

Ray just has an amazing voice and this is a really special song in my opinion. Here are some of the key lyrics:

"All of this around us'll fall over
I tell you what we're gonna do
You will shelter me my love
And I will shelter you
I will shelter you"

# 3 First Day Of My Life - Bright Eyes

A lovely, almost melancholic song for lovers of Indie music:

# 4 Only Love - Ben Howard

This guy just has the most amazing voice ever and this is a truly beautiful song as far as wedding first dance songs go.

Here are some of the key lyrics:

"Darling you're with me, always around me.

Only love, only love.

Darling I feel you, under my body.

Only love, only love.

Give me shelter, or show me heart

Come on love, come on love.

Watch me fall apart, watch me fall apart.
And I'll be yours to keep."

#5 Angel - Jack Johnson

I am sure most of you have heard of Jack Johnson, but I had to include this lovely little song here as it is not overused and is really appropriate and romantic. It is also nice and short, so is perfect if you are shy dancers.

# 6 When We Fall In - Sean Hayes

What a lovely little song! Cute and kind of up beat at the same time.

# 7 Bend Down Low - Paddy Casey

A song that says it does not matter what happens in life, you will be there for each other.

# 8 They Bring Me To You - Joshua Radin

Some of the key lyrics to this beautiful song:

"Moon pours through the ceiling tonight

Embraces us tight

Shows me we're right for each other

And as we lie here and let the world fade away

The sunrise tries to end it while we try to stay"

Help me make this a list of 10!
