The first dance! While many couples can’t wait to hit the dance floor as newlyweds, some may find the thought of dancing in front of all their guests more than a little intimidating. That’s why song choice is key! Choose something fun with an upbeat tempo and guests might be expecting a bit of a routine but if you opt for a slower number you’re more likely to get people up and joining you on the dance floor if that’s what you’d prefer!

With an endless list of songs to choose from here’s a little intel from The Wedding Team at Delamere Manor on the first dance song choices by a variety of celebs!

Barack and Michelle Obama – You and I by Stevie Wonder

Beyoncé and Jay Z  – Crazy in Love

David and Victoria Beckham – It Had To Be You by The Starlight Orchestra

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin – Why Shouldn’t ? by Cole Porter

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright – I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston

Tom and Giovanna Fletcher – Easy by the Commodores


And there’s nothing we love more than a celeb cover! At the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding Ellie Goulding performed Your Song by Elton John while Florence Welch sang Over the Rainbow when Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds hit the dance floor for their first dance as newlyweds. Fancy a more alternative choice? Look to Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood who opted for Video Games by Lana Del Rey performed by their good friend Tom Odell.
