Top First Dance Songs of 2017

| , , , | Leave a Comment

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

8. Head Over Boots – Jon Pardi

7. Let’s Stay Together – Al Green

6. The Story – Brandi Carlisle

5. Photograph – Ed Sheeran

4. You & Me – Dave Matthews Band

3. Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You – Frankie Valli

2. Everything – Michael Bublé

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 your first dance song with us below!

    ENTIRE VENUE

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
