Unique First Dance Songs for Your Wedding Part 01

Milestones Wedding DJ has played many, many first dance songs since our beginning in 1987. For sure, there are many songs that we play over and over again ("All of Me" by John Legend, "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran", etc.), but many brides and grooms want to choose from unique first dance songs. Something that is special to them.

They want a song that is not only special to them, but a song that is memorable.

There are thousands of playlists featuring first dance songs, but most of them are redundant and feature older first dance songs that are considered wedding staples. We didn't want to repeat something you can find virtually anywhere.

If you are looking through unique first dance songs to find one that perfectly describes your relationship with your spouse-to-be, we've compiled some songs that you may want to consider. These are songs that may not have been on your radar. To help, we took a few lyrics from each song to help you make your selection a bit easier.

The list of first dance songs below are in no particular order and we did not specify the genre because we wanted the potential first dance songs to stand alone on their own so you could consider them on their own merit.

Sweet Lyrics:

I could stay here for a lifetime

I’m stuck with you, stuck with you, stuck with you

Sweet Lyrics:

When I close my eyes

No, I’ll be sleeping by your side every night at home

"Never Worn White" - Katy Perry

But I wanna get it right
‘Cause I really wanna say, I do

Should the dawn refuse to rise
Should the darkness close outside
May you still find your heart
Next to mine
For we found hope
In a hopeless time

You stopped me in my tracks and put me right in my place
Used to think that lovin’ meant a painful chase
But you’re right here now and I think you’ll stay

So we can take it slowly
Through the nights I’m growing in life
You can be my always, one and always and we can be just fine
Just fine

Starin’ at you, standin’ there, in that dress
What it’s doin’ to me, ain’t a secret
‘Cause watchin’ you is all that I can do
And I’m speechless
