AKA Party Band at Owlpen Manor October 2021 7

Favourite First Dance Songs of 2021

Deciding the first dance for your wedding day can be tricky. Should you go down the route of a classic slow dance played live by the band or throw caution to the wind and have a DJ garage mashup? Whatever you decide, AKA thinks you should pick something that you love, enjoy, and will remember.

When AKA are playing your first dance live, there is nothing better than seeing 2 people just enjoying themselves, not worrying about anyone else in the room, and taking a moment to enjoy the band, the music, and each other.

With that in mind and in no particular order, here are our favourite first dance wedding requests from 2021.

  • Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran

  • All Of Me - John Legend

  • Romeo and Juliet - Dire Straits

  • Better Together - Jack Johnson

  • You’ll Be In My Heart - Phil Collins (Tarzan)

  • L-O-V-E - Nat King Cole

  • Signed Sealed Delivered - Stevie Wonder

  • Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer

  • You Make My Dreams - Darryl Hall and John Oates

  • Rather Be - Clean Bandit

  • When it comes to your first dance there is no right or wrong choice. Pick something that you want, love and that reflects you as a couple.
