Six amazing first dance wedding songs… that you haven’t heard before!

by jaime on August 12, 2012

In tradition of our first ever wedding song post, I wanted to bust out a couple of songs that were either recommended by our readers or ones, like the Griffin House and Ingrid Michaelson songs, that I had found and fallen in love with.

Don’t forget to check out all of the Wedding Music recommendations!

Griffin House – Better Than Love

Honey when you doubt my love for you
Looking in my eyes what I’m going through
Even if we change and fall out of
You hold my hand and it’s better than love

Ingrid Michaelson – Turn to Stone

let’s go to sleep with clearer heads
and hearts too big to fit our beds
and maybe we wont feel so alone
before we turn to stone

Sufjan Stevens – To Be Alone With You

I’d swim across Lake Michigan
I’d sell my shoes
I’d give my body to be back again
In the rest of the room
To be alone with you

The New Amsterdams – Turn Out the Light

I’ve been wrong, but it’s alright
They’ve been long and lonely nights
I was lost till I found you
I’m turnin’ out the light
I’ll stay if you want me to

Joshua Radin – Only You

All I needed was the love you gave
All I needed for another day
And all I ever knew
Only you

Meiko – Stuck on You

‘Cause you are the one
I could see having fun with
Not just for tonight
But for the rest of my life

I have to say that I’m particularly smitten by the Meiko song – it’s the right amount of both upbeat and romantic.

What is your favorite first dance song?

I’m currently in love with Sugarland’s Fall Into Me.
“When the weight of the world bears down so strong you leave footprints on the street
And there’s too many miles to face without a few more hours sleep
The storm clouds overhead won’t shed any rain to quench your thirst
I wanna be the one you reach for first…”
