Carson suffers from a serious case of melophilia. Geeking out on her favorite music artists is her guilty pleasure.


You may have been dreaming about the first dance on your wedding ever since you got engaged. This time-honored tradition symbolizes love and unity. The expressions you make and the steps you take during the dance say a lot about the harmony between you and your partner. And since it’s something you’ll commemorate for the rest of your life, it’s only fitting to find the perfect song to make it romantic, passionate, and enduring.

At first, picking a song for your wedding dance might seem easy. After all, the choices are practically limitless. But if you rush your decision, you risk going cliché. It helps to look back and think of any song that holds a special place in your relationship, such as the song that was playing when you first met or a tune that perfectly tells your journey from couples to soulmates.

There are plenty of classic hits you can’t go wrong with, especially from the likes of Elvis Presley, Celine Dion, and Frank Sinatra. But if you want something more contemporary, many artists like Ed Sheeran, Adele, and Jason Mraz have released songs that would be perfect for your first dance.
