If there’s anything all brides and grooms want, is for their wedding to be marvelously unique. That’s totally normal – people don’t get married every day, so this is a once-in-a-lifetime-kind-of-event you will definitely remember years and even decades from now on.
So, if you want your wedding to be special, you most likely want your wedding music to be reflective of your personality – especially the songs you pick for those wedding highlights (like your First Dance, your Father Daughter Dance, or your Last Dance, for example). And yes, this includes the genre of the music you’re choosing as well.
What are some rock First Dance songs you will definitely love to dance to (for the first time as husband and wife)? We have some suggestions for you – so read on and find out more.
Rock First Dance Songs
True Love Waits – Radiohead. This alternative rock song will sweep you (and your guests) off your feet and transport you to another world. Beautifully written and gorgeously executed, this tune will bring energy, romance, and balance to the dance floor – and that’s precisely why it’s so perfect for a bride and groom who really want to send out a powerful message with their First Dance.
Love Street – The Doors. Big fans of old-school, classic rock music? This song is perfect for you, then. Jim Morrison knew how to create songs that stick to your mind in a completely unique way – and this one makes no exception whatsoever. A lovely composition and a truly original sound that will accompany you not just for the First Dance, but for many decades from now on.
(Everything I Do) I Do It For You – Bryan Adams. This rock ballad is a true legend – the kind that sticks to your heart and reminds you just how powerful love is. The kind you can never forget. The kind every single guest will recognize and love, regardless of whether they’re fans of the genre.
I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing – Aerosmith. This one’s a true legend we couldn’t help but include in this list. Romantic to the very last note, magnificent, larger than life, and yet so close to everyone’s heart, this tune is a golden piece that will work magically well for your First Dance.
Bed of Roses – Bon Jovi. Undoubtedly, this is one of the most romantic rock ballads ever created – so it makes all the sense in the world to add it to your wedding First Dance shortlist (at least!).
