The Best First Dance Wedding Songs Of 2021

Updated: Feb 14, 2021

Searching for your some modern songs to add to your wedding DJ playlist? These are brand spanking new for 2021 and will all sound great for your first dance

We all know that the year 2020 was an absolute wash out when it comes to weddings. Covid-19 did a number on us all but its now time to start looking at what lies ahead. If you are planning your wedding and are looking for something fresh for your first dance then well done you. You're bang in the right place!

1, Movement – Hozier

'Movement' is taken from Hozier's album, Wasteland, Baby!

"When you move / I'm put to mind of all that I wanna be / When you move / I could never define all that you are to me."

2, Beyond – Leon Bridges

R&B fans will love the smooth vocals and romantic lyrics on this track. The lyrics detail the excitement of discovering true love

3, Consider Me – Allen Stone

We love this new tune from this quirky soul singer—the lyrics are perfect for a first dance, and it has a great beat for dancing. In fact, the music video illustrates how amazing this song is to play at a wedding.

4, Dont Let Me Down – Joy Crookes

The emerging artist from South London sounds like a beautiful mix of Amy Winehouse and Norah Jones. You can't go wrong with "Don't Let Me Down," and you don't have to worry about your friends "accidentally" picking the same song as you.

5, Nobody Come Round Here - Lucy Rose

It will feel like it's just the two of you in the room as soon as Lucy Rose's "Nobody Comes Round Here" starts playing. "You wash your dishes / You tuck your chair in / You make me realize / That I don't have to be so cold / That I don't have to be alone."

6, Finally – Halsey

It has a nice pace to it, not too fast but something you could slowly waltz to. Its perfect to draw in your guests as they watch you dance your first dance. Plus the lyrics are super romantic so win/win.

7, Best Part – H.E.R

We already know some couples on our list who love this song and are planning it for their first dance in 2021

8, Latch (Acoustic) – Sam Smith

So not really new for 2020 but certainly one of the best first dance songs ever. This first dance song may bring a few tears to the eyes of your guests, and that's not a bad thing.

9, A Place We Knew - Dean Lewis

A Place We Knew, includes the perfect mushy first dance song without feeling cheesy. (It's an art, really.) "Your heart is my home, your heart is my home / Your heart is my home, and I'm not letting go."

Based in Marlow in Buckinghamshire (U.K) We have DJed at 100s of weddings as well as events for Hedkandi, Ministry of Sound and Digital (Brighton). Click here for more info on our wedding discos
