Name that tune…

Name That Tune - top alternative first dance wedding songs | British wedding blog - Bride and TonicYou’re almost there, the venue has been booked for what seems like YEARS, your Pinterest is fit to burst, your flowers have been snipped and are being arranged as we speak, you’ve sent the groom off for a final shave and haircut, your maids are gathered, you’ve checked the weather at least 1 zillion times a day this week…but there is something missing…OMG did you forget to choose your first dance song?!!!

Ok, so not many people probably forget to do this but trust me some do – I was one of them. Cue the night before the biiiig day and me and the future hubs were frantically searching our record collections for ‘the one’. Arghhhh!!!

Don’t worry if this sounds like you – you’ve come to the right place! We have hand picked, listened out for and researched the, slightly alternative but still much beloved, top 20 tunes we fell in love with for any first dance. Sit back and enjoy…
