The first dance song is going to be the most important song played at your wedding reception. For this reason, there is always a lot of pressure surrounding what song to choose; it is important that the song represents your journey as a couple and holds meaning for the two of you. Here at BridesMade, we have put our heads together and compiled a list of songs that would make perfect first dance songs, based on how you met your SO!

We Found Love in a Hopeless Place by Rihanna and Calvin Harris is totally perfect for you! Bars often favour low lighting; it's hard to find anyone in there, much less the person you choose to marry! This song will get everybody up and moving, the perfect first dance song for the couple that loves to party and have a good time!
