Whether it’s going to be choreographed, a waltz, or your own made up style, your first dance wedding song is something you’ll always remember.
Traditional is great, but quirky is fun and usually unforgettable. If you want to get your guests laughing, scratching their heads, or wanting to join you on the dance floor, go for something that’s a little outside the box. That doesn’t mean you have to go totally crazy with Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” or anything (although you certainly can, if that’s your thing). Here are six quirky and fun song ideas for that oh so special first dance.
Ticks // Brad Paisley
Hey, it’s a love song! Albeit a little unconventional. Get your groove on with these lyrics
‘Cause I’d like to see you out in the moonlight
I’d like to kiss you way back in the sticks
I’d like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I’d like to check you for ticks
Man! I Feel Like a Woman // Shania Twain
When this song comes on, you just can’t help it, you have to dance. Show him how he makes you feel like a woman and he’ll love it.
I’m going out tonight-I’m feelin’ alright
Gonna let it all hang out
Wanna make some noise-really raise my voice
Yeah, I wanna scream and shout
No inhibitions-make no conditions
Get a little outta line
I ain’t gonna act politically correct
I only wanna have a good time
Walk The Line // Johnny Cash
This country classic is traditional, yet unique as a first dance song. It’s so catchy that you’ll probably hear a few voices singing along.
As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I’ve known proves that it’s right
Because you’re mine, I walk the line
Honey Bee // Blake Shelton
Truly a quintessential country love song, these lyrics pretty much say it all.
You’ll be my soft and sweet
I’ll be your strong and steady
You’ll be my glass of wine
I’ll be your shot of whiskey
You’ll be my sunny day
I’ll be your shade tree
You’ll be my honeysuckle
I’ll be your honey bee
She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy // Kenny Chesney
If you’re country to the core, this is your perfect first dance song and will definitely put a smile on everybody’s face.
She thinks my tractor’s sexy
It really turns her on
She’s always starin’ at me
While I’m chuggin’ along
She likes the way it’s pullin’ while we’re tillin’ up the land
She’s even kind of crazy ’bout my farmer’s tan
She’s the only one who really understands what gets me.
Check Yes or No // George Strait
This is perfect for the couple who have known each other forever since it take you back to the good ol’ school days and first love
Do you love me, do you wanna be my friend?
And if you do
Well then don’t be afraid to take me by the hand
If you want to
I think this is how love goes, check yes or no
