Your first dance as husband and wife is a special moment that's both intimate and entirely public. Many of the brides and grooms featured in the pages of Inside Weddings have shared that they feel as though they're the only two people in the room while swaying to a song that's special to them as a couple, surrounded by loved ones.
Some brides and grooms know as soon as they become engaged which song they'd like to listen to during their first dance as husband and wife, while others scour the web for a tune that's just right. To gather inspiration, we've collected the first dance songs chosen by the couples featured in the 2016 issues of Inside Weddings.
