Best First Dance Songs of 2014 muscians

The song you choose is one you’ll forever associate with the happiest day of your life.

It needs to be something memorable, something that sum up your relationship, something which soaks up the atmosphere on your day and something you know will give you butterflies every time you hear it, until the end of time.

That’s a lot of responsibility for one song to carry, so you don’t want to choose the tune on a whim.

To help you select that iconic song, we’ve created a list of the top wedding songs from this year so far. Have a listen and let us know your favourite – or your suggestions – on Facebook.
