Choosing a song for your first dance is probably one of the most important tasks you’ll have in the days leading to the wedding. If you want your wedding song to be original yet romantic, take a look at this list of non-cliché wedding songs.

“Sweet Thing” by Van Morrison

Van Morrison has produced countless songs, many of which were romantic, but this one is by far our favorite. “Sweet Thing” is from Morrison’s second album, Astral Weeks, and it’s one of the most romantic songs ever.

“Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS

“Never Tear Us Apart” is a pretty popular song, but still not so much that it can be considered a cliché wedding song. It’s a beautiful and very passionate hit, which makes it a perfect choice for your first dance.

“There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” by The Smiths

This song is more upbeat than others, and while it might seem like an odd choice at first, the original version or an acoustic cover would both fit great as a first dance song.

“Little Trip to Heaven” by Tom Waits

This emotional 1973 song from Waits’ album Closing Time is a great wedding song for all romantic couples out there.
