One of the moments often dreamt of by brides-to-be is a beautiful first dance with their new husband. This may take the form of a slow, romantic number or an up-tempo dramatic dance that leaves guests seriously in awe.

Below, we discover some of the options available to Dubai brides and grooms, and Dance For You reveals their top five most requested first dance songs by Dubai couples. Enjoy!

The first dance song at a couple’s wedding depends entirely on the couple and their preference. Usually, they choose a particular song and either dance to that alone or mix it with something else.


With songs that have a faster tempo, it definitely comes to dances like Disco, Salsa, and Jive. In this case, the bride and groom even have the option of using their skills to dance to their chosen first dance song before employing the same techniques for the after party when they will dance socially with their guests.

Over the last couple of years, we have noticed a growing trend of a couple using between two and four separate songs for their first dance and mixing them together to form one first dance. This is great as it can cater to the musical tastes of guests of different ages, with songs from decades gone by being mixed with more modern tracks.
