A Beautiful Compilation
of First Dance Wedding Songs



First dance wedding songs are one of those things that always moisten our eyes and light our faces with a glow and a smile. Wedding first dance songs begin the soundtrack to our married lives. The first steps in a beautiful life long journey, and to be sure, all eyes will be on you as you take your first dance as husband and wife.

This moment is all about you and your beloved, so choose a song important to you both. It should represent what you mean to each other.

While there are a myriad of wedding first dance music, don't be afraid to choose a song less known, so long as it's meaningful to you. Be sure to pay close attention to all the lyrics of your chosen song to make sure that it's entirely appropriate. It's no good having a beautiful song, where one of the partners is dying or has pasted away – or is singing about their recent breakup.

1. At Last - Etta James

At Last Lyrics

(Written By Mack Gordon, Harry Warren)

I was never spellbound by a starry sky
What is there to moon glow, when love has passed you by
Then there came a midnight and the world was new
Now here am I so spellbound, darling
Not by stars, but just by you

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song
At Last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known
You smiled and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last

At last my love has come along
My lonely days are over and life is like a song
At last the skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped in clover the night I looked at you
I found a dream that I can speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill I've never known
You smiled and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven

2. From This Moment - Shania Twain

From This Moment Lyrics

(Written By Shania Twain, Robert J. Lange)

(I do swear that I'll aways be there.
I'd give anything and everything and I will always care.
Through weakness and strength, happiness and sorrow,
for better or worse, I will love you with
every beat of my heart.)
From this moment life has begun
From this moment you are the one
Right beside you is where I belong
From this moment on

From this moment I have been blessed
I live only for your happiness
And for your love I'd give my last breath
From this moment on

I give my hand to you with all my heart
Can't wait to live my life with you, can't wait to start
You and I will never be apart
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
There is nothing I wouldn't give
From this moment on

You're the reason I believe in love
And you're the answer to my prayers from up above
All we need is just the two of us
My dreams came true because of you

From this moment as long as I live
I will love you, I promise you this
From this moment
I will love you as long as I live
From this moment on

3. The Man You Love - Il Divo

The Man You Love Lyrics

(Written By Steve Mac, Blair Daly, Troy Verges)

Si me ves hallarás en mis ojos el amor
Eres tú la mitad que a mi vida completó
Lo que soy te daré sin miedo a algun error
Creo en ti y dejaré en tus manos mi ilusión.
Quiero estar dentro de tu corazón,
Poder lograr que me ames como yo.

I only wanna be the man
To give you everything I can
Every day and every night
Love you for all my life.
I don't wanna change the world
As long as you're my girl
It's more than enough,
Just to be the man you love.

Quiero ser el lugar donde puedas refugiar
El temor y calmar en mis brazos tu ansiedad
Desde hoy voy a ser todo para ti
Hasta ayer te soñé y ahora estás aquí
Quiero oir tus secretos, lo que sueñes descubrir,
Quiero amarte así.

I only wanna be the man
To give you everything I can
Every day and every night
Love you for all my life.
I don't wanna change the world
As long as you're my girl
It's more than enough,
Just to be the man you love.

I only wanna be the man
To give you everything I can
Every day and every night
Love you for all my life.
I don't wanna change the world
As long as you're my girl
It's more than enough,
Just to be the man you love.

Just to be the man you love

4. Have I Told You Lately - Rod Stewart

Have I Told You Lately Lyrics

(Written By Van Morrison)

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles that's what you do

For the morning sun in all it's glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter
And somehow you make it better
Ease my troubles that's what you do
There's a love that's divine
And it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one, to the one

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles that's what you do

There's a love that's divine
And it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one, to the one

And have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
You fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles that's what you do
Take away all my sadness
Fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles that's what you do
Take away all my sadness
Fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles that's what you do

5. You're Still the One - Shania Twain

You're Still the One Lyrics

(Written By Shania Twain, Robert J. Lange)

When I first saw you, I saw love. And the first time you touched me, I felt love.
And after all this time, you're still the one I love.)

Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come my baby
We mighta took the long way
We knew we'd get there someday

They said, I bet they'll never make it
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

Ain't nothin' better
We beat the odds together
I'm glad we didn't listen
Look at what we would be missin'

They said, I bet they'll never make it
But just look at us holding on
We're still together still going strong

(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're still the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night

6. Ave Maria - Celine Dion

Ave Maria Lyrics - English Version

(Written By Franz Shubert, arr. by Charles Previn)

Ave Maria!

Maiden mild!
Oh listen to a maiden's prayer
For thou canst hear amid the wild
'Tis thou 'tis thou canst save amid despair
We slumber safely till the morrow
Though we've by man outcast reviled
Oh Maiden see a maiden's sorrow
Oh Mother hear a suppliant child!

Ave Maria

Ave Maria gratia plena
Maria gratia plena
Maria gratia plena
Ave ave dominus
Dominus tecum
The murky cavern's air so heavy
Shall breathe of balm if thou hast smiled
Oh, Maiden, hear a maiden pleadin'
Oh, Mother, hear a suppliant child

Ave Maria
Ave Maria

7. Could I Have This Dance - Anne Murray

Could I Have This Dance Lyrics

(Written By Wayland Holyfield, Bob House)

I'll always remember the song they were playing,
The first time we danced and I knew.
As we swayed to the music and held to each other,
I fell in love with you.
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?
Would you be my partner, then every night?
When we're together it feels so right,
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?

I'll always remember that magic moment,
When I held you close to me.
As we moved together, I knew, forever,
You're all I'll ever need.

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?
Would you be my partner every night?
When we're together it feels so right,
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?
Would you be my partner every night?
When we're together it feels so right,
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?

8. Kiss From a Rose - Seal

Kiss From a Rose Lyrics

(Written By Samuel, Sealhenri)

There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill.
But did you know, That when it snows,
My eyes become large and The light that you shine can't be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh,
The more I get of you,
The stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom. A light hits the gloom on the gray.
There is so much a man can tell you, So much he can say.
You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny.
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?
But did you know, That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can't be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you The stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom, A light hits the gloom on the gray,
I've been kissed by a rose on the gray,
I've been kissed by a rose
I've been kissed by a rose on the gray, ...And if I should fall along the way
I've been kissed by a rose ...been kissed by a rose on the gray.
There is so much a man can tell you, So much he can say.
You remain My power, my pleasure, my pain.
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny, yeah
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby.
But did you know, That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can't be seen.
Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you The stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom, A light hits the gloom on the gray.
Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you The stranger it feels, yeah
And now that your rose is in bloom, A light hits the gloom on the gray
Now that your rose is in bloom, A light hits the gloom on the gray.

9. When a Man Loves a Woman - Michael Bolton

When a Man Loves a Woman Lyrics

(Written By Percy Sledge, Calvin Lewis, Andrew Wright)

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothin' else
He'd trade the world
For a good thing he's found
If she is bad, he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Trying to hold on to what he needs
He'd give up all his comforts
And sleep out in the rain
If she said that's the way
It ought to be

When a man loves a woman
I give you everything I've got (yeah)
Trying to hold on
To your precious love
Baby please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Deep down in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she is playing him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Loving eyes can never see

Yes when a man loves a woman
I now exactly how he feels
'Cause baby, baby, baby
I am a man
When a man loves a woman

10. Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You -
Peabo Bryson & Roberta Flack

Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You Lyrics

(Written By Michael Masseer, Gerry Goffin)

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
It seems like the natural thing to do
Tonight no one's gonna find us
We'll leave the world behind us
When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And I hope that deep inside you feel it too
Tonight our spirits will be climbing
To a sky lit with diamonds
When I make love to you tonight

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And that midnight sun
Is gonna come shining through
Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to make love to you tonight

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And soon this old world will feel brand new
Tonight we will both discover
How friends turn into lovers
When I make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
And that midnight sun
Is gonna come shining through
Tonight there'll be no distance between us
What I want most to do
Is to make love to you

Tonight I celebrate my love for you
Tonight I celebrate my love for you

11. (I Can't Help) Falling In Love With You - Elvis Presley

(I Can't Help) Falling In Love With You Lyrics

(Written By George Weiss, Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore. A a pop song based on "Plaisir d'amour" by Jean Paul Egide Martini)

Wise men say only fools rush in
But I can't help falling in love with you

Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be

Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you
For I can't help falling in love with you

12. Endless love - Lionel Richie & Diana Ross

Endless love Lyrics

(Written by Lionel Richie)

My love
There's only you in my life
The only thing that's bright

My first love
You're every breath that I take
You're every step I make

And I, I, I, I, I
I want to share
All my love with you
No one else will do

And your eyes
Your eyes, your eyes
They tell me how much you care
Ooh yes, you will always be
My endless love

Two hearts,
Two hearts that beat as one
Our lives have just begun

Forever
(Ohhhh)
I'll hold you close in my arms
I can't resist your charms

And love
Oh, love
I'll be a fool
For you,
I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh, you know I don't mind

Cause you
You mean the world to me
Oh
I know
I know
I've found in you
My endless love

Ooooh-Woow
Boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom

Oooh, and love
Oh, love
I'll be that fool
For you,
I'm sure
You know I don't mind
Oh you know
I don't mind

And, yes
You'll be the only one
Cause no one can deny
This love I have inside
And I'll give it all to you
My love
My love, my love
My endless love

13. When You Say Nothing At All - Ronan Keating

When You Say Nothing At All Lyrics

(Written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz)

It's amazing
How you can speak
Right to my heart
Without saying a word,
You can light up the dark
Try as I may
I could never explain
What I hear when
You don't say a thing

[CHORUS:]
The smile on your face
Lets me know
That you need me
There's a truth
In your eyes
Saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says
You'll catch me
Whenever I fall
You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all

All day long
I can hear people
Talking out loud
But when you hold me near
You drown out the crowd
(The crowd)
Try as they may
They could never define
What's been said
Between your
Heart and mine

[Repeat chorus x 2]

You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all
You say it best
When you say
Nothing at al)

You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all
You say it best
When you say
Nothing at al)

The smile on your face
The truth in your eyes
The touch of your hand
Let's me know
That you need me

[Repeat chorus]

You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all
You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all)

The smile on your face
The truth in your eyes
The touch of your hand
Let's me know
That you need me

[Repeat chorus]

You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all
You say it best
When you say
Nothing at all 

14. Two Little Words

Two Little Words Lyrics

(Lyrics and Music By Lynn Leonti and Jim McShane)

BRIDE VERSE 1:
You are the man, to keep me warm at night
Baby, hold me tight
You are the man, who loves me as I am
You’re my best friend
As my love for you grew
There was no one else for me but you

BRIDE CHORUS:
When I said those two little words, I meant them from my heart
As I looked in your eyes, I knew it was the start
Of a lifetime, with deep passion and truth, two little words from me to you
Two little words, for two people in love
I do

GROOM VERSE 2:
You are the woman, to share my life
It feels so right
You are the woman I care for & love
That I dream of
Now I understand
That loving you makes me a better man

GROOM CHORUS:
When I said those two little words, I meant them from my heart
As I looked in your eyes, I knew it was the start
Of a bond blessed from above, two separate lives, united as one
Two little words for two people in love
I do

BRIDGE:
As we dance tonight/we celebrate - (sung by bride)
A true love that comes/once in a life - (sung by groom)
Two little words we/promised today - (sung by bride)

15. The Wedding - Julie Rogers

The Wedding Lyrics

You by my side, that's how I see us
I close my eyes, and I can see us
We're on our way to say, I Do oo
My secret dreams have all come true oo

I see the church, I see the people,
Your folks and mine happy and smiling
And I can hear sweet voices singing,
Avé Maria

Oh, my love, my love,
This can really be
That some day you'll walk,
Down the aisle with me
Let it be, make it be,
That I'm the one for you
I'd be yours, all yours,
Now and forever

I see us now, your hand in my hand
This is the hour, this is the moment
And I can hear sweet voices singing,
Avé Maria, avé Maria, Avé Maria
