Unique First Dance Songs for Your Wedding Part 02

This is Part 02. Be sure to check out 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 have something unique for their first dance song. 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 first dance playlists, but most of them are redundant and feature older songs that are considered wedding staples. We didn't want to repeat something you can find virtually anywhere.

If you are looking for a unique first dance song 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.

These songs are in no particular order and we did not specify the genre because we wanted the songs to stand alone on their own so you could consider them on their own merit.

"29 #Strafford APTS" - Bon Iver

Nor the snow shoe light or the autumns
Threw the meaning out the door
Now could you be a friend
There ain’t no meaning anymore
Come and kiss me here again

"My Love Won’t Let You Down" - Little Mix

Anytime that you need me to
When there’s no one else around
On your last breath, calling out
Trust me, my love won’t let you down

Bury my fear, you’re the edge of the ocean
The tide follows what’s right
And so have I

And you cut through all the noise
I make sense of the madness
When I listen to your voice

This whole place might burn
But if you stay, I’m safe inside like
Blind hurricane’s eyes swirl
I’ll face your world

I'm falling into love

Let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
Making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I

At first I thought it was infatuation
But, woo, it's lasted so long
Now I find myself wanting
To marry me and take you home

My darling, I'm ready, to burst into flames for you
I was just coasting till we met
You remind me just how good it can get

"Touching Heaven" - Jonnyswim

I'm not just waiting for skies to part
You've been my glimpse of Kingdom right from the start
And you got me touching heaven, ooo
Got me touching heaven, ooo

I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
And I could hold you in my arms
Oh I could hold you forever

Sweet Lyrics:

I don't get many things right the first time
In fact, I am told that a lot
Now I know all the wrong turns, the stumbles and falls
Brought me here
