The first dance is one of the most poignant moments of a wedding reception that the couple and their guests will treasure for years to come. Alongside the father of the bride's speech, the cutting of the cake, and the father-daughter dance, the newlyweds' first twirl around the dancefloor is something that everyone will remember and have their cameras at the ready for.
But to complete that picture-perfect moment, which is the best song to play? This is a dilemma that many couples face in the planning stages of their wedding – finding a tune that is meaningful to both of them and easy to dance to.
Music experts at ourfirstdance.co.uk have shared their greatest playlist with HELLO! Online and revealed which songs have been the most popular choice for couples in recent years.
It may come as no surprise that Ed Sheeran's Thinking out Loud, which even includes a wedding dance in its video, was top of the list for last year. John Legend's utterly romantic All of Me, which the crooner wrote specifically for his love Chrissy Teigen, also scored high in people's preferences.
