Let's be honest, the younger generation seems to be bit jaded when it comes to love. And it's little surprise, when romance seems to have turned into one-night hookups, instagram stalking and Tinder - it's easy to see why we all might be becoming a little cynical about matters of the heart.
But what better way to channel your inner romantic than with music this Valentine's Day? We've created a swoon-worthy playlist to help you do just that! Let your guard down and bring out your soft, sentimental side with these 15 love songs all perfect for a slow dance and all worth a listen if you're searching for the perfect first dance song for your upcoming wedding. From new kids on the block like Ed Sheeran and Ellie Goulding to the classics by Whitney and Marvin, there's something for every couple on the list!
As a band for hire for wedding and parties, we can perform your first dance request live to make that first dance moment extra special (we always aim for spine tingles all round) or you can crank up the original version of your chosen song though our speakers before we get the party started...
