October 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment


If anyone knows me or follows my Instagram account, they will know I am a huge music fan. Rock and indie makes my heart glow. Having witnessed a lot of first dances I often wonder what I would pick. I know a lot of couples I chat to don’t want to go for a traditional cheesey love song, or Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran - the most popular first dance song of 2017.

I’ve compiled a little list of some alternative options to get your first dance inspiration flowing:


  1. Yellow - Coldplay

  2. Angels - The XX

  3. You’ve Got The Love - Florence and the Machine

  4. Toothpaste Kisses - The Maccabees

  5. Everlong - The Foo Fighters

  6. The Most Beautiful Girl in the World - Prince

     7. You Always Make me Smile - Kyle Andrews

     8. I could Die For You - RHCP

     9. Anyone Else But You - The Moldy Peaches

     10. All I Want Is You  - Barry Louis Polisar

     11. I Would Do Anything For You - Foster the People

     12. Only love - Ben Howard

     13. I’ll Be Yours - Those Dancing Days

     14. You Make My Dreams - Daryl Hall & John Oates 

     15. XO - John Mayer

     16. Everlasting Light - The Black Keys

     17. You and I (Forever) - Jessie Ware

     18. Still Into You - Paramore

     19. She’s Got You High - Mumm-Ra

     20. Wonderwall - Oasis
