The Most Unique First Dance Songs For A Wedding

When you’re planning a wedding, it’s common for people to want something a little bit different for their wedding.

This is because everyone wants to have a wedding which is memorable, and consequently a lot of people equate that with something unique.

With a lot of experience of first dance songs, we’ve put together a list of the kinds of tracks which you won’t hear at most weddings, but can still be perfect for people.

500 Miles – Sleeping At Last

This isn’t something which you would consider to be a wedding first dance song.

However, this is an acoustic version of the original and is a very sensual and romantic track.

It’s one which would work perfectly for a wedding and is something which is unique.

We Have All The Time In The World – Louis Armstrong

This is a song which not a lot of people do know about.

Louis Armstrong was someone who had a profound and crooning voice, and released a rendition of this track for a James Bond film called ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’.

Played over a montage of Bond falling in love with his future wife, it was romantic, slow and atmospheric.

It’s perfect for a couple who want a slower paced dance, and one which signifies the rest of their lives together.

Happy – Pharrell

This isn’t a traditional wedding song.

Happy is something which is lively, energetic and full of life.

It’s a good song for a wedding though, as you’re bound to be happy.

This is the kind of song which is infectious, making the wedding guests all excited and ready to party, which is perfect for having a wedding that everyone remembers and everyone enjoys.

Hooked On A Feeling – Blue Suede

Made famous by the recent Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy, this is something which is a little bit more alternative.

It’s happy, lively and great to dance to, but it’s not something which you see at weddings.

Although to be honest, it does a great job of representing the joy and passion which people with the knowledge that someone has pledged to be theirs forever.

We Go Together – Grease

Who doesn’t love a musical?

Grease is the story of love, and two people coming together and realising that they’re meant for each other. We Go Together, sung by the original cast, plays at the end of the film when everyone’s paired off and found their other half.

It’s happy, infectious and a little bit silly, which is just perfect for a wedding.

Plus, it’ll help to get your guests into the celebrating mood and set a positive tone for the whole night.

Overall, these are just a couple of the best wedding first dance songs which are a bit unique.

When it comes to a wedding song, it’s often a case of the convention against the need to do something different.

The first dance song is something which should be important to you and your partner, and that’s all that matters.

It doesn’t matter if it isn’t traditional, so long as it’s something that you’ll both look back on with fond memories in 20 years time.
