First Dance

Music at your wedding

Some people rehearse their first dance, others cringe at the thought of performing in front of their family and guests. Here’s a list from The Washington Post of the most popular wedding songs in America in case you need inspiration.

Interesting to see that Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ tops the list!

At my own wedding, we had a surprise appearance by Scott Matthew who sang Annie’s Song by John Denver as you’ve never heard it before. YouTube have him singing it live, and sounding just like it did at our small reception.  He followed it with his version of  Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance with Somebody (number 5 on the list of popular songs above),= but again sounding completely different from the original.

Of course, the most popular wedding song in Scotland comes at the end of the night, not the beginning! It has to be ‘500 miles’ by The Pretenders

If you want to hear more of Scott Matthew, he’s on iTunes and no doubt on Spotify too. He also has a website.
