Though the world has made a lot of progress, there are still those who find the aesthetics and pop culture of the 1950s to be dreamy. If you don’t feel a tea-length tulle dress would be figure flattering, but you still want to incorporate the vibe of the ‘50s into your big day, a classic song from the decade could be just the way to do it.

These timeless tunes evoke thoughts of romance and long-lasting love, just like what you and your future spouse share. There is also the potential benefit of discovering a song your grandparents danced to at their own celebration. Due to being part of the music canon for so long, many of these tracks have been included in other media for decades. Who can forget “Earth Angel” being played at the “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance in Back to the Future or Baby and Johnny rehearsing to “Love is Strange” in Dirty Dancing? This could be the perfect way to combine the interests of you and your sweetheart.
Find inspiration in the playlist below – perhaps the hunt for the perfect song for your first dance will finally end.
