10 First Dance songs that aren’t overused

March 24, 2023



It’s that dreaded time to pick your wedding songs. I get it, you’ve had to make what feels like a million decisions already, and for some reason picking the “right” song can feel extremely overwhelming. Have you been aimlessly scrolling every possible streaming platform to find the perfect first dance song for your wedding day? Are you tired of the traditional top 10 lists with the same old songs listed repeatedly? Well, friend, you’re in the right place. Here’s a list of 10 underused first dance songs that are sure to make you feel all warm & fuzzy while leaving the crowd misty-eyed.

  1. “Safe” – Antoine Bradford
  2. “Heaven’s Knife” – Josh Garrels
  3. “Beyond” – Leon Bridges
  4. “Darlin'” – Dante Bowe
  5. “Heaven” – Boyce Avenue, Megan Nicole
  6. “Forever Like That” – Ben Rector
  7. “Lifetime” – Justin Bieber
  8. “Till My Breath Goes Away” – Cam Monroe
  9. “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes
  10. “Treasure” – Jason Piquette

If you fell in love with one of these, great, and if not that’s okay too. Ultimately, I want to encourage you to free yourself from what you think you “have to” do or the many opinions of everyone around you and pick a song that suits you and your fiance. When it comes to your first dance together pick a song you both enjoy and one you can see yourselves dancing to. And no this doesn’t need to be a choreographed production. Just two newlyweds, basking in the joy of their new union. Most importantly, don’t forget to have fun!

At Grace-Filled Gathering Co., we aim to help simplify the wedding planning process so you can focus on what matters most. Don’t let song choices overwhelm you in the planning process.

Rooting for you, friend!
