First Dance Songs Perfect for 2021

 2021-Free-Wedding-Song- List

Windy City Wedding Dance professionals are predicting a major come back for the wedding industry in 2021. It's that time of year where couples are starting to think about their first dance. Just to be ready, we have started to compile our list of first dance songs perfect for 2021.

Even though we all have our own favorite style of music, it's normal for a couple to have different tastes. For example, in a big city like Chicago not all of our clients have cars, so sharing the radio during a road trip isn't common.

At the end of the day, you shouldn't feel like you've failed as a couple just because you don't have a love song.

By collaborating with a wedding dance professional, you can try different dance styles and different genres of music. Many of our clients discover what they want inside the dance studio which helps them start to narrow down styles of music.

The first list we are compiling in 2021 are all NEW songs. If you are not a classic or oldies lover  then you'll find these first dance songs perfect for 2021.

Whatever Forever Is

On your next search type in Whatever Forever is by Devin Dawson. If ultra romantic is not your cup of tea but the lyrics are still important then you might want to consider this first dance option. I would describe this song as upbeat and not so serious.

This is How You Fall in Love

Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler give you the option to gaze into each others eyes like no one else is in the room. The soft melody and speed is perfect for a romantic first dance. As the song progresses you can feel the song building and at the very end we finish with a soft acoustic finish.
