First Dance Songs | Ultimate Wedding Songs is a guest post from Music Central Entertainment | Photo: Spirits Intrigued Photography 

One of our favourite moments at any wedding is the newlywed’s first dance. Not only is this an excellent photo op, but it’s also one of the sweetest romantic moments of the entire celebration. For some couples choosing the first dance song is as simple as picking “our song”. For others, it’s researching and narrowing down options.

We asked our friend, Rob, from Music Central Entertainment to update one of our most popular lists of wedding songs: First Dance Songs.
