  • 170 Wedding Waltz Dance Songs | Songs For A Wedding First Dance Waltz

    A couples first dance at a wedding is always a touching and wonderful event to watch. Two people in love enjoying their first dance together amidst their friends and family. To watch two newlyweds perform a wedding waltz dance can be spectacular, if done correctly.

    First you two must decide what type of dance you wish to enjoy at your reception. Traditional slow, tango, waltz or a made up dance move routine like a rock the reception to name just a few. Should you decide upon a wedding waltz, then listed below are 170 songs that you may dance a waltz to.

    Your next step would be to select the song you would like to dance to and begin practicing your dance moves. You will need more than the average living room space so consider a basement, back porch or any area unencumbered by obstacles. Select a spot that you will begin and imagine yourself at the venue on their dance floor.

    If you are not a confident dancer, or perhaps are unfamiliar with the art of doing the waltz then you will need to seek out a qualified dance instructor. Usually the cost is minimal and can last several weeks practicing once per week.

    Take the selected song with you so that after a few lessons you may begin doing the waltz to the first dance song of your choosing. Following each lesson go home and practice. Even that night, practice what you have learned and repeat a few times over the next few days until your next lesson. The waltz is an easy dance but if you do not practice it could become an epic fail in front of everyone at the reception.

    Continue practicing up to the wedding day but not so much that you become sick of doing the dance and begin having second thoughts on the endeavor. Inform your DJ or band what dance routine you will be doing and if you will begin on the first note, partially into the song or simple walk slowly across the dance floor during the songs intro.

    If you have selected a band it would be a good idea to do a practice run the week before the big day to be sure everyone knows what is to be expected of them. Better here to work out the kinks than in front of the camera.

    Be sure to inform your photographer and videographer (if any) of your dance intentions so that they are ready and will not be in your way as you two waltz across the room. Whether you do your wedding waltz dance immediately following the introductions or after dinner it will be one the guests will want to remember for a long time.

    One final note before you dive into browsing the list of waltz songs below. There are some songs that we hear often, sing along to without giving much thought to the original meaning. Some songs such as Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" is about a break-up and "I Honestly Love You" by Olivia Newton John is about an ending of an extra-marital affair.

    I have included those two in here because some folks prefer not to read into the song that far and actually enjoy dancing to them. To each his, or her own, still, you may wish to listen to the lyrics carefully before making the final song decision for your first dance.

    These 170 songs are listed in alphabetically order not by popularity so we may update them from time to time.
