First Dance Wedding Songs

First Dance Wedding Songs


During a typical wedding ceremony, the newlyweds' first dance is undoubtedly one of the highlights. The ideal music needs to be played to enhance the couples' incredibly romantic and lovely moments! Some couples have a song that holds special meaning for them or that takes them back to a certain period of their relationship. They might even proceed to use that song's lyrics on their own custom wedding poster/ canvas!

This collection of fantastic first dance music is perfect for every couple and any genre, though, if you're not sure what "our song" is yet! Remember that these are merely recommendations and that Vicilo can use any song with sheet music available to create a unique Poster/Canvas masterpiece! 

If you would like us to create a poster/canvas with your first dance song, or have a question about a particular song, send us a message to our customer service email:
