Top 10 Celebrity First Dance Songs

Choosing your first dance song is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning. It's a special moment you'll never forget, so make sure you pick an unforgettable soundtrack to your memories!

Here are some popular choices in the celeb world....


Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

The couple asked friend and amazing songwriter Sia to perform her hit 'Chandelier' at their wedding last year, we can imagine there wasn't a dry eye in the house!




Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

This hot celeb duo opted for old favourite 'At Last' by Etta James. This is one of the most popular wedding first dance songs, also chosen by Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban for their wedding.



Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

This loved up couple chose a song that they'd both loved for years, so it was meant to be for them. They slow danced to 'A Song For You' by Danny Hathaway, just perfect!



Kate Middleton and Prince William

Ellie Goulding performed the Elton John classic 'Your Song' live for their first dance. The couple only danced for around 30 seconds before shy William asked her to pick up the pace with a faster track to get the crowds on the dancefloor!



Reese Witherspoon and Jim Teth

The newlyweds went with 'Make You Feel My Love', opting for the original by Bob Dylan rather than the more recent popular choice performed by Adele below.
