10 Beautiful First Dance Songs

It's funny and surprising that in this day of modern weddings the traditional first dance is still an important formality for many couples on their wedding night. While it was once literally the first time the couple had danced together, these days the First Dance is often seen as a fun and meaningful way to open up the dance floor for a night of partying. 

Couples usually choose a song that holds meaning to both of them, but this doesn't always mean it's easy to find the perfect song. There are other factors as well, like song tempo, style and 'danceability'.

Many Tremolo clients also like to have a song that hasn't necessarily been used at all their friend's weddings! So we've put together a list of ten songs that are worthy of being considered for the ever-important first dance, that you may not have seen at weddings before. These songs have either a great beat or rhythmic feel, varying tempos, standout vocal performances and meaningful lyrics.
