40 Fun & Upbeat First Dance Song Ideas

We're all about wedding music and making playlists around here. And if you ask us, the songs you include at the key moments in your day, go a long way to creating the kind of vibe you want from your wedding.

And your first dance is one of those moments.

We've already shared our picks impossibly romantic first dances (the kind of songs that'll make everyone in the room start to weep!), but today's playlist is a little bit different.

These first dance song ideas are for couples who want to get the party going from their first step on the dancefloor.

The couples who love to bounce around the kitchen while they cook, rock out together on the weekend, or work on some serious choreography for the day that's in it.

That's not to say these songs aren't romantic, and packed full of sentiment and meaning too – they just double job as fun first dance songs that will guarantee a full floor for the rest of the night.

There's some folksy and indie numbers that will create an uplifting vibe, Motown and Rat Pack hits that are wedding favourites, and a few fun pop songs that double up as first dance-worthy soundtracks.
