Top First Dance Songs of 2017

Whether its rock & roll or blues, clas­si­cal or coun­try, r&b or reg­gae, or any other genre of music you can think of, the song that you and your fiancé choose as your first dance can deter­mine the mood of your wed­ding recep­tion. There are no rules when it comes to select­ing this song, in fact we had one of our awe­some Lesner Inn cou­ples dance to the instru­men­tal music from their favorite Star Wars movie this past year! Con­sid­er­ing there are no rules, many cou­ples have trou­ble select­ing the song for their first dance, so we thought we would help out by com­pil­ing a list of our all-​time favorites, new & old:

10. I’ve Had the Time of My Life – Jen­nifer Warnes & Bill Med­ley



9. Kiss Me – Six­pence Non the Richer

The song that you share with your loved for your first dance should be one that you trea­sure for­ever, so make sure it’s a good one! We would love to hear your first dance story, so share it with us!
