The first song you dance to as a married couple is one that will tug at the heart strings every time you hear it for the rest of your lives. It’s an incredibly important tune, so it’s vital that both bride and groom agree on the selection!
So how, as a groom, can you find a track to dance to that you can both agree on? Take a look at these top picks that guys will love for your ceremony.
What a Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong
It doesn’t get much more gorgeous than this Louis Armstrong classic, and you simply can’t go wrong with it as your first dance tune.
The song gives a strong uplifting feeling, and its paced tune makes it easy to dance to - even if you haven’t had lessons! Plus, it’s popular enough that you’ll likely hear it when you’re out and about in public, and be reminded of your ‘wonderful’ day.
Heroes - David Bowie
There was nothing and no one like Bowie, and the track ‘Heroes’ is simply made for weddings. It’s an all-time favourite for first dances, and for good reason - it’s one you’ll both agree on, and it’s a little left of field compared with your usual romantic tracks.
For a faster version of the same tune, try the ‘Moulin Rouge’ version sung by Ewan McGregor.
All of Me - John Legend
Legend’s ‘All of Me’ was released in 2013, but is already a romantic ballad for the ages. Written in ode to his wife, the track is a fresh and modern hit that includes some of the sweetest and most charming lyrics of any song - ever.
For the groom who wants to dedicate this dance to his lucky wife, this song is a must.
Endless Love - Lionel Richie
For the true romantics out there, you can’t go past the Lionel Richie and Diana Ross duet. You need only listen to the lyrics to hear that this is the perfect wedding tune.
It’s all about celebrating a love that will last forever, but with Lionel’s smoky and powerful voice, it’s one that any Aussie bloke will be happy to include in his wedding.
Marry Me - Train
Simple and sweet - those are the words that easily describe this modern hit by Train. The instrumentals are stripped back to a bare minimum, and all you’re left with is the romantic crooning of frontman Patrick Monahan.
Two Strong Hearts - John Farnham
Want to get your guests tapping their feet and itching to get on the dance floor? Want to include some Aussie greatness on your wedding day? Consider the upbeat smash hit ‘Two Strong Hearts’ by legendary local John Farnham.
In case you’ve never properly listened to the lyrics before, you might be surprised to learn that they are deceptively romantic. Plus, you can pick up the pace on the dance floor and really get moving with its quicker pace!
