Most Popular Wedding Songs for Your First Dance 2014
No dance will ever be as special or as important to your love story as the song you choose for your First Dance at your wedding. It’s sure to be meaningful, perhaps the first song you ever slow-danced to together during your earliest dating days, and the lyrics share with your wedding guests a very special message about what makes your love so strong.
Each year, wedding entertainers blog about the most popular wedding songs for the current year, and when you see those lists, you may be inspired to choose from among them…or, you might be an independent, alternative wedding couple who likes to depart from any ‘most popular’ list to choose a completely unexpected and original song for your First Dance.

When choosing your first dance song, be sure to read all of the official lyrics of the song online, and chat with your wedding band leader or wedding deejay, to be sure the love song you have in mind doesn’t actually have a negative connotation, like Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You,’ which is a song about a relationship ending.
