If you’re planning to pour some serious soul into your first dance (and why wouldn’t you?), you definitely want to consider these gems. Fair warning: if soulful isn’t your thing, you might want to pass on this list—but honestly, who could resist these timeless tracks?

The Perfect First Dance Songs for Your Wedding

Adore – Prince

First up, let’s talk about “Adore” by Prince. Now, Prince was a musical genius, and “Adore” is one of his most heartfelt ballads. It’s smooth, it’s romantic, and it’s got that magical touch that makes you feel like you’re the only two people in the room. Picture this: you’re swaying gently with your partner, lost in each other’s eyes, as Prince serenades you with his velvety voice. Can you feel the love tonight? You betcha.

Love U 4 Life – Jodeci

Next on the list is Jodeci’s “Love U 4 Life.” If you’re looking for something that screams 90s R&B with a touch of that raw, emotional edge, this is your jam. Jodeci knows how to tug at your heartstrings while making you want to groove at the same time. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and sultry, ideal for couples who want to keep things intimate yet soulful. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be loved for life?

Let’s Get it On – Marvin Gaye

Now, let’s get a little cheeky with Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.” Okay, okay, I hear you—this one’s a bit steamy, and you might want to ensure the kiddos are out of earshot. But come on, it’s Marvin Gaye! This song is the epitome of soulful sensuality. It’s got that slow, seductive rhythm that makes you want to pull your partner a little closer and just let the music take over. It’s a bold choice, but if you’re up for it, this track will definitely set the mood.

Love and Happiness – Al Green

Let’s not forget Al Green’s “Love and Happiness.” This song is pure joy wrapped up in a soulful package. Al Green’s voice is like a warm embrace, and the lyrics? They’re all about the beauty of love and the happiness it brings. It’s a feel-good tune that will have you smiling from ear to ear as you dance. Plus, it’s got that classic vibe that never goes out of style. Trust me, your guests will be tapping their feet and maybe even joining in for a little dance themselves.

Here and Now – Luther Vandross

Now, here’s a bit of a curveball: “Here and Now” by Luther Vandross. Yes, it was overplayed in the 90s, but there’s a reason for that—it’s a timeless classic. Luther’s smooth, rich voice is like butter, and the song’s message is all about living in the moment and cherishing the love you have right now. It’s a beautiful reminder to be present with your partner and savor every second of your special day. And honestly, when was the last time you heard this at a wedding? It’s time for a comeback!

Let’s Chill – Guy

Lastly, let’s not forget “Let’s Chill” by Guy. This song is all about taking it easy and enjoying the journey of love. It’s got that laid-back, chill vibe that’s perfect for couples who want to keep things relaxed and fun. Imagine gliding across the dance floor with your partner, just soaking in the moment and letting the music wash over you. It’s a great way to kick off your marriage with a sense of calm and contentment.

So there you have it, a soulful selection for your first dance. Each of these songs brings its own unique flavor to the table, and any one of them would make for an unforgettable moment on your big day. Remember, your first dance is all about celebrating your love and connection, so choose the tune that speaks to your heart and let the music do the rest. Happy dancing!
