Popular chart-toppers include Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Adele and John Legend for those looking for slow, romantic ballads to cruise gracefully around the dance floor as guests watch intently.

Classic choices include ‘If I Ain’t Got Your’ by Alicia Keys, ‘All You Need Is Love’ by The Beetles, ‘I can’t Take My Eyes of You’ by Frankie Valli and ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri.

Those who might like something a bit more alternative could try The Cure ‘Friday I’m in Love’ or what about Queen ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’?

For those who love rock music, you might prefer your first dance as Mr and Mrs to the likes of Aerosmith’s ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’ or ‘Marry Me’ by Train.

Or for the cool kids, how about ‘You Do Something To Me’ by the legendary Paul Weller or a David Bowie track that has memories for the two of you?

If Indie is your thing, then artists like Corrine Bailey Rae, The Kooks and the Maccabees are worth listening to for that all important first song choice.

And how can we forget Mr Michael Bublé and his dulcet tones. For those who like swing music you might consider Frank Sinatra’s ‘I’ve Got You Under My Skin’, ’It Had To Be You’ by Harry Connick Jr. or ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ by Nina Simone.
