The first dance – a truly memorable part of the wedding. Not only for the bride and groom but for your family and friends too. It’s a special moment that you’ll want to remember forever, so naturally, choosing a song may not be the easiest thing in the world. Maybe you and your partner already have a song between you that you cherish, but if not you’ll probably need a bit of inspiration.
At the moment, we can’t get enough of acoustic love songs. They’re the perfect statement to make on your big day and far more unique than the usual soundtracks to a first dance. We’ve got 12 gorgeous acoustic songs that will make you fall in love all over again and they’re making us teary-eyed just listening to them - just make sure you're wearing some waterproof on the big day!
“Crazy In Love” by Daniela Andrade
Of course, we love Queen Bey’s original, but Daniela’s vocals in this stripped back acoustic cover are just amazing, and they’re doing a really, really great job of giving us chills
“All you need is Love” by Clementine Duo
We feel gushy whenever we see that wedding scene in Love Actually, but if you’re not planning on hiring vocalists for your first dance performance, then you’ll probably want to take a listen to this lovely acoustic cover by Clementine Duo.
“Imagine” By Jack Johnson
This cover of John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ is a soft and gentle song to share your first dance to. Performed by American singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, we reckon this is one that will have everyone welling up throughout! John Lennon co-produced this song with his wife Yoko to imagine a world at peace with no barriers.
“Earned it” By Cameron Bedell and Megan Davies
Cameron Bedell and Megan Davies beautiful acoustic version of The Weeknd’s hit track ‘Earned it’ is up there as one of our favourites. Okay, so it's not strictly a love song, but it featured in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, so there's maybe an element of love there...sort of? Either way, this cover makes a truly gorgeous song for your first dance with the incredible vocals from Cameron and Megan.
“Your Song” By Ellie Goulding
Ellie’s gorgeous tones in this cover of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ which was originally released in 1970 is simply stunning. It’s a song fit for royalty too as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge selected this as the song for their first dance – Awww!
"Count On Me" By Bruno Mars
You can't go wrong with this beautiful love song by the talented Bruno Mars - it makes for a truly romantic song to share your first dance to and will really be one to remember!
