First dances are arguably the most poignant part of the wedding day

As the adrenaline of the wedding ceremony wears off, you and your new husband can finally relax and share an intimate moment as a married couple. It’s something you’ll remember forever and whenever you hear that special song you’ll be catapulted straight back to that moment, in each other’s arms as newlyweds.

The ballad has always been the genre of choice for first dances when it comes to capturing the romanticism of a wedding day. It’s slow and easy to dance to; swaying to Lonestar won’t require a huge amount of preparation.

But don’t feel tied down to this slow and soppy style of music. It’s your party and you can headbang, jive or Charleston if you want to. So take a look at our list of top 50 first dance songs that span the genres, from heavy metal to eighties’ ska and we’ve even thrown in the token Buble number to please your mum.

Getting married in Belfast or Northern Ireland?

Along with her selection of folk and traditional harp music, Ciara has adopted popular pieces into her repertoire. Walking down the aisle to the traditional Wagner’s Wedding March, Pachelbel’s Canon in D, or perhaps the more contemporary Fields of Gold or Ashokan’s Farewell, played elegantly on the harp, will add the finishing touch to your special day.

Many brides have arrived to the romantic and distinctive tone of the harp and many a bottle of champagne has been opened to the sound of an Irish jig or hornpipe during the Drinks Reception.  Ciara also plays concert flute and can include an unaccompanied haunting Irish Melody or classical piece during your Wedding Ceremony.
