Every year, I create a playlist of the songs that my couples choose for their first dance so I have easy access while I'm choreographing dances and teaching lessons. It's an ever-evolving list as I add songs throughout the year. But by this time of year, the list has been solidified and can finally be shared with the world!
Drum roll please...
For the second year in a row, the most popular first dance song at First Dance Charlotte was You Are the Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne. I had seven (!) couples choose this song this year. The second most popular song was From the Ground Up by Dan + Shay followed by The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra and Die a Happy Man by Thomas Rhett. The remaining songs on the list below were danced to by one or two couples.
As you'll see, there are so many songs to choose from and this is just the tip of the iceberg. If you are still considering songs for your first dance, check out the options below or search "First Dance Charlotte" on Spotify to view my other playlists of first dance songs. I recommend opening a bottle of wine and having a listening session with your partner - you'll have a better idea of what you like once you listen to a few together.
It's been a joy to work with so many wonderful couples this year. Here's to 2018 and a whole new list of love songs!
