We, at Toronto’s The Perfect Wedding Guide have composed a list of our favourite and what we thing are the Best Wedding First Dance Songs. The tradition of the First Dance stems from as far back as before the 17th century where there used to be very formal dances or Ball’s thrown. The First Dance would be reserved for the guest of honour, which was usually the person of the highest social standing, who would begin the first dance as a way to open up the Dancefloor. The first dance at weddings used to be a waltz in the 17th-19th centuries changing to more modern Ballroom Dancing and now, presently the slow dance.
Nowaday’s it can be used to open the dancefloor, but oftentimes it opens up the post-ceremony reception festivities. Couples tend to place a huge importance on the selection of the perfect song that suits them, and we, as always, want to help. So here are out top picks of Top First Dance Songs and their artists.
