At the wedding reception, the first dance of the new couple is a beautiful moment that everyone will remember. To add a touch of magic and romance that will remind you of the 60s and 70s, Beatles songs are a must.

That’s why I curated this amazing list for you. Take a look! I even included my favorite lyrics to inspire you.

1. All You Need Is Love

This beautiful romantic track by your favorite band is great for the first dance – and can also work as a processional or recessional song. 


There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung

2. I Want To Hold Your Hand

This is a timeless love song to dedicate to each other during your first dance at the wedding. 


Oh please, say to me
You’ll let me be your man
And please, say to me
You’ll let me hold your hand

3. When I’m Sixty Four

This beautiful song does not just talk about “here and now” but also about the distant future when you’ll still need each other. 


If I’d been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four

4. I Saw Her Standing There

It is a song that reflects a love-at-first-sight kind of feeling, with the heart going “boom” when the first feeling of love hits.   


Well, my heart went “boom”
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine

5. Love Me Do

The beautiful tune and lyrics of the song make it perfect for the first dance, as well as a wedding party reception entrance song


Love, love me do.

You know I love you.

I’ll always be true.

So please, love me do.

Whoa, love me do.

6. Something

This timeless tune reflects the trust that glues together a relationship – and it can be an excellent song for the first dance at the wedding. 

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t want to leave her now

7. Eight Days A Week

This one beautiful reflects how deeply you love each other, and how 7 days just aren’t enough to hold all of it.


Love you every day, girl
Always on my mind
One thing I can say, girl
Love you all the time

8. I Wanna be Your Man

A beautiful Beatles track to add to your wedding playlist, this is the perfect song for a first dance at a gay wedding with two grooms.


Tell me that you love me, baby
Let me understand
Tell me that you love me, baby
I wanna be your man

9. Till There Was You

The right person can make us see the world in a whole new light – and that’s what this song is about: the power and beauty of love. 


There were birds in the sky
But I never saw them winging
No, I never saw them at all
‘Til there was you

10. Ask Me Why

A lovely song about simple love – this Beatles track is beautiful, romantic, and perfect for the first dance at your wedding ceremony.  


I love you, ’cause you tell me things I want to know
And it’s true that it really only goes to show
That I know that I, I, I, I
Should never, never, never be blue

11. Hey Jude

One of the most popular Beatles songs, Hey Jude is about finding the right person to love and opening the heart to them.


Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you’ll begin to make it better

12. Every Little Thing

A romantic track about the feeling of pride and love, this Beatles song is great for a lesbian wedding as the first dance song and the recessional couples’ dance.


When I’m with her I’m happy

Just to know that She loves me

Yes, I know that She loves me now

There is one thing I’m sure of

I will love her forever

For I know love will never die

13. Real Love

The song beautifully captures the hopes and dreams of a new couple.


From this moment on I know
Exactly where my life will go
Seems that all I really was doing
Was waiting for love

14. Two of Us



It is believed that Paul McCartney dedicated the song to his then new relationship with Linda – and it makes a lovely first dance song at a wedding. 

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters on my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches
On our way back home

15. In My Life

This song is one of my all-time favorites. It’s about that special person that you’ll love above all others. While beautiful as a first dance song, it’s especially touching for a mother-son or father-daughter dance, because it captures the bond between a child and a parent.


Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

16. Blackbird

If your relationship feels like a breath of fresh air to you, this track can be a calm and melodious song for the first dance. 


Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly all your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

17. Michelle

The words of this song are simple and beautiful – and it’s the perfect way to profess love when you share the dance floor for the first time. 


Michelle, ma belle
I love you, I love you, I love you
That’s all I want to say
Until I find a way
I will say the only words I know that you’ll understand

18. All My Loving

While this song has a melancholy note to it, it’s a good first dance song if you and your partner have beaten distance and come together in the end. 

Remember, I’ll always be true

And then while I’m away
I’ll write home every day
And I’ll send all my loving to you

19. Words of Love

This is one of the most romantic love songs to play at the wedding during the first dance as you look into each other’s eyes.  


Let me hear you say
The words I long to hear
Darling, when you’re near

20. She’s A Woman

A song about love and trust, this Beatles track is one of the most popular wedding songs for the first dance of the new couple. 


She will never make me jealous
Gives me all her time as well as loving
Don’t ask me why
