A little secret: this entire post came about when I heard the first song and needed to share it (I have a love affair with Matchbox Twenty), but I wanted to make sure that I got a handful of different genres and wedding music on here. All but one were released in 2012 (and the one was from 2011, so still new!) and they all deserve a listen!
Matchbox Twenty – Overjoyed
I got a little misty eyed when I first heard this song. Definitely a keeper.
I’ve somehow missed adding T-Swift to any of my music lists. It was an oversight that, here, is being remedied.
This is a perfect song for an upbeat dance. It’s so cute and pretty.
I had included this in a collection of wedding songs for walking down the aisle, but it’s a lovely fit for the first dance, too. This is another one that gets me all choked up when I hear it.
A lot of readers recommended this song, and while I’m a little iffy about it (kids, don’t get wasted before you get married!), it is still very pretty.
I cannot tell you how much I like this song for a first dance! Girls, if you haven’t heard this song (it’s really new for 2012), then listen now!
Seeing Dustin Lynch perform this in concert – and share that he wrote this song about his grandparents (AWWW!) – helped this song make the list.
This is a fun, upbeat song that is still pretty and works for your first dance.
A super underrated song (and one you probably haven’t ever heard!) that made me swoon.
