“Croghan, when are you getting married?” Yes, we’ve been engaged for three years and much like a lot of couples headed into 2020 – we’re just trying to figure it all out!
For those couples that got their lives in better order over the past 365-days and finally tied the knot, we’re breaking down the TOP first dance tracks of wedding season 2019. Now, some wedding traditions go out of style, but one that’s remained popular over time IS the first dance between the bride and groom.
According to WeddingWire’s 2019 Newlywed Report, which surveyed more than 18,000 newlyweds married in 2018, 92% of them shared a first dance at their reception. What has changed over the years is the types of songs couples choose!
These days the most popular genre for first dance music is country… specifically, Dan + Shay’s “Speechless”
Kane Brown’s “Good as You”
Lukas Graham’s “Love Someone”
Other top picks for first dance tracks at weddings include Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect”
John Legend and Cynthia Erivo’s version of “God Only Knows,” by the Beach Boys.
The survey shows that some tunes are on the decline this year, including Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”
John Legend’s “All of Me,” was also more popular in previous years.
As for how couples choose their special song for their first dance, 46% say they went with ballads that reflect how they met their partner or the relationship itself, and 41% say they just picked a personal favorite… we’re thinking it could be Justin Bieber‘s VERY own wedding team up with Dan + Shay:
