The Best First Dance Wedding Songs For 2022

A great wedding is all about celebrating love and creating life-long memories, and one of the most memorable parts of every wedding is the first dance. That’s why brides and grooms will spend a great deal of time coming up with just the perfect song for their first dance. While traditional songs are often the way to go, many couples want to pick a newer song that is meaningful to them. Here’s a list of the best new songs for 2022 at this point) that would make a great choice for your first dance. Not only can you be fairly certain that these songs are so new they haven’t become cliché, you may find yourself starting a new tradition with them.

01. Dan + Shay  -  Speechless

Dan + Shay is the moniker for pop country duo Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney. As vocalists and songwriters out of Nashville, they have released a number of chart-topping singles in the past few years. Speechless is perhaps their most popular love song, and it has quickly become a favorite among fans of country music.

The song is so ideal for weddings that Dan + Shay themselves created a music video featuring footage from each of their own weddings. If it’s good enough for the artists themselves, it certainly makes an excellent choice for a first dance song. See our songs.

02. Ed Sheeran  -  Perfect

Ed Sheeran, the British singer-songwriter, has quickly become a household name. Not only is he one of the most popular artists recording today, he’s even dipped his toes into acting with appearances in Game of Thrones and the movie Yesterday. With more than 150 million albums sold, he’s had plenty of hits, but none may be as endearing as the love song Perfect.

While many couples will chose the original version for their first dance, he’s released two other versions, one a duet with Beyoncé, entitled Perfect Duet, and another with Andrea Bocelli, known as Perfect Symphony.

03. James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go

James Arthur, another singer songwriter from England, rose to fame by winning first place on The X Factor, a British reality show. His pop songs have attracted many fans, ever since his first single debuted at number one. But when it comes to your wedding day, your best choice may be Say You Won’t Let Go. This lovely ballad is a great way to start your lives together.

04. John Legend - All of Me

John Legend likely needs no introduction, and there’s not enough space here to list all the awards he’s received. Suffice it to say that All Of Me, a song dedicated to his wife Chrissy Teigen, makes a perfect wedding song. Referred to as a ‘mountainous piano crusher’ by Rolling Stone, it has become one of Legend’s best-known standards.

05. Aerosmith - I Don't Want to Miss a Thing

Well, this list wouldn’t be complete without at least one classic rock tune: Aerosmith’s I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing. This tearjerker of a song came out in the nineties on the Armageddon soundtrack. But don’t let that fool you. This is an insanely catchy love song, and one Aerosmith’s best, which is really saying something when you consider all their amazing discography.
