While trying to figure out a first dance song for your wedding, it can help to narrow down options by genre first. Simply choosing your preferred style of music is recommended, but if you and your future spouse have differing taste or you truly enjoy a variety of sounds, you may want to consider R&B. Fans of the smooth genre love the soulful sound and often sensual beats. Romance is often a lyrical theme for these tunes, meaning there’s quite a variety to choose from. Whether you want something nostalgic, old school, or modern, there is bound to be an option for you and your beloved. Below are a few of our favorite options.
For fans of other genres, find first dance options in alternative rock and musicals.
