Weddings: Top 25 Bridal Waltz Songs

Updated: Oct 27, 2020

Here are the top 25 bridal waltz songs of all time to help you find the perfect song to make your first dance as newlyweds even more memorable.

The Bridal Waltz is quite possibly the most memorable part of the reception as it is an incredibly special moment in time where you and your spouse can intimately enjoy each others company.

Below are 25 handpicked bridal waltz songs that have been the most popular choices from the weddings I have DJ'ed. There is a variety of older and newer songs so that there are songs for a variety of weddings.

How To Choose Your Bridal Waltz (First Dance) Song?

Choosing the perfect bridal waltz song can in some cases be challenging if you and your partner have very different music preferences or if there are family influences for which song you "should" choose.

Some things to consider with your partner for your bridal waltz song:

  • Common musical interest

  • Uptempo or slow.

  • Choreographed dance routine or intimate slow dance.

  • Look for lyrics that mean something to your relationship.

Honestly, it should be a song that means something to you both as a couple, no matter what artist/genre/etc.


It's your wedding so you can choose whatever song you like. If you don't want to do one because you're uncomfortable having family and friends watching you, you don't have to have one. But if you are forced to I suggest choosing a song that will get everyone on the dance floor.
