What Style is Your Wedding?

When delving into the process of selecting a meaningful and unique song for your first dance, you need to consider your style as a couple. What will represent you in the best way? The type of wedding you choose can easily help you determine the right song for you.

Traditional and Classic

Traditional First Dance

If your wedding day consists of formal attire, big and beautiful floral arrangements, a sit-down dinner complete with place-settings, and all of the traditional wedding customs, you will want to choose a first dance song as elegant and high-end as the rest of your ceremony.

A romantic classic like Etta James’ “At Last” is the perfect way to slow dance with your new spouse and capture the traditional and formal feel of your wedding day and your love for one another.

Looking for something a little more modern yet still timeless and classy? Take a listen to John Legend’s “All of Me.” It’s a current favorite and meaningful song with an updated take on deep, traditional love.

Rustic and Charming

Rustic First Dance


A down-home feel at an outdoor venue or inside a charming barn with lots of lights, lace, and DIY decor will have you looking for a song to match the fun and rustic vibe of your big day.

If you want a great country song that sums up your love and your wedding, Shania Twain’s “From the Moment” is a sweet little song that will make you fall in love all over again. If something more current on country radio is what you are looking for, try LANCO’s “Greatest Love Story.” The song will become a cherished favorite after your first dance.


Antique decor and a vintage theme will surely make your wedding one to remember. The fun and unique charm in everything from the centerpieces to floral arrangements will make a lasting impression on your guests and also tell a lot about your style as a couple.

Finding the perfect song for this type of wedding is easy and fun. You can select something truly vintage “I Found You” by Alabama Shakes. Or you can have the best of both worlds and listen to “Your Song” by Lady Gaga. This is a current take on a classic love song with a vintage feel.

Casual First Dance

Is your wedding going to be a laid-back, casual afternoon affair in a garden? Low-key, subtle but tasteful decorations will set the mood for a simple, beautiful wedding. You just need the perfect song that fits not only your relaxed and enjoyable day but the easy-going nature of your relationship.

For a fun, slightly upbeat first dance, give a listen to Jack Johnson’s “Better Together” or “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz. The simple, light-hearted feel to both of these songs is the perfect joyous touch to your first dance at your casual wedding.


All of the latest trends, hottest decorations and current themes are in place to make your modern wedding the day of your dreams. Bold colors, geometric patterns and of course only the most tasteful elements are sure to stand out. Now you need the perfect song to mirror these modern concepts.

There are so many modern love songs to choose from for your first dance. Some great ideas are “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri, “I Get to Love You” by Tori Kelly, or Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.” For the most modern song for your wedding, consider Tori Kelly and Ed Sheeran’s “I Was Made For Loving You” or the incredibly romantic “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur. Either of these current hits will capture your love and the modern vibe of your wedding.
