Ask Kate: Upbeat Song for Your First Dance

January 30, 2013

Kate Thompson has been offering heart-felt advice and sparklingly different wedding inspiration for ten years. She is married with two children, and often features in the national press. With her warm and caring nature and off-beat sense of humour, she'll answer every question with knowledgable insight and understanding to help and inspire or simply restore your peace of mind.


I’m looking for a first dance song for my wedding to my gorgeous fiance. He is 6’3″ and I’m 4’11”, so we don’t want a slow dance as we’d look silly and we’re known for our upbeat dancing together, so we want an upbeat song. The only one I’ve found which I would consider is (Your Love is Lifting Me) Higher and Higher.


With your height difference an upbeat song could be ideal but how about taking things one step further by learning a dance routine? You could take just a few first dance lessons to learn something quite amazing that you could perform in front of your friends and family. You did say you were well known for your upbeat dancing together! This could make the day truly memorable.

Here are some upbeat song ideas for you –

Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Queen

For Once in My Life – Stevie Wonder

Happy Together – The Turtles

La La Love You – The Pixies

All I Want is You – Barry Louis Polisar

 Hope that helps!
