What girl isn’t over-the-moon excited about her first dance with her new husband? I know I, even as a 20-year-old college student, occasionally ponder which song will be perfect for my first dance married to the man I’m going to spend the rest of my life with. This intimate moment presents you as a couple to your family and friends, so your song choice should illustrate your relationship in a very special way. No pressure, right?

To alleviate some of the stress of this important decision, here are 25 song suggestions to consider for your first dance as a newly-wed.
