Movie-Inspired First Dance Songs

We all have our own favourite movie moments.

Chances are that it comes along with an epic soundtrack.

Why not embrace your favourite movie moments and bring them into your big day?

To help you to have that memorable wedding moment, we present some of the very best movie inspired first dance song ideas.

Everything I Do (I Do It For You)

Featuring in the Robin Hood Prince of Thieves film, this song by Bryan Adams is an epic love song that is sure to get everyone singing along!

I Will Always Love You

Sang by Whitney Houston in the Bodyguard, there is something about that part in the middle of the song when everything stops which really makes our heart beat a little faster.

Ideal for creating a real sense of impact for your first dance.

I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing

A popular song for weddings, this Aerosmith classic is from Armageddon.

It is not only beautiful and romantic, but is a little bit edgy too.

Ideal for couples who think of themselves as a bit on the rocky side.


Another rocky song, this tune from the City of Angels by the Goo Goo Dolls is one of those songs that you might not instantly realise that you know, but once you hear it you can’t help but sing along.

Nothing At All

We love Notting Hill and this Ronan Keating song from the film is an ideal first dance song.

It is modern and a bit on the different side, and you are sure to have your entire guest list singing along.

Time Of My Life

Possibly one of the most recreated dances in the movie world, those couples that choose this Dirty Dancing classic might want to tackle the moves too.

But beware, this isn’t the easy to do, but if you get it right, looks pretty amazing!

There are so many different movies out there with classic soundtracks that would work for your first dance.

Why not think about your favourite movies and whether the songs would work for your first dance?

Want to create your very own slice of movie magic on your big day?

Why not try out some of these awesome first dance ideas and see if you can have them on the big screen?
