For those who want to get away from the usual first dance routine of kissing on the dance floor while shuffling back and forth, a waltz is a great choice for a first dance. It's also easy to learn, enjoyable to do, and requires no choreography (though a few spins and dips could certainly be added for more adventurous couples!).
A hit song in a waltz tempo seems to be rare, however. Finding a true waltz not written in the 1800's can prove to be a challenge, but we've discovered three hit love songs that might be perfect for a first dance waltz.
Waltz away the night with any of these lovely melodies on your first dance!
1. If I Knew Then - Lady Antebellum
2. What the World Needs Now is Love - Burt Bacharach
3. Come Away With Me - Norah Jones
Brides and Grooms aren't the only ones to enjoy a waltz. Keep them coming by letting your band know to be ready with a few waltzes to keep the night spinning!
