Top 5 Ed Sheeran First Dance Songs


This song is from his new album, the moment I heard it I thought to myself “I need to create a list of Ed Sheeran first dace songs and include this one!”

*Favourite lyric snippet*

“But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you’re holding mine

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight”

Thinking Out Loud

This beautiful masterpiece has already been included on nearly every single first dance song list since it’s release in 2014.

*Favourite lyric snippet*

“And, darling, I will be loving you ’til we’re 70
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I’m thinking ’bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am”

Kiss Me

Let’s be honest, even the name is perfect! Released in 2011, this song is purely about being with someone you love and promising them saftey in your arms.

*Favourite lyric snippet*

“Kiss me like you wanna be loved
You wanna be loved
You wanna be loved
This feels like falling in love
Falling in love
We’re falling in love

Settle down with me
And I’ll be your safety
You’ll be my lady”

Hearts Don’t Break Around Here

This may be one of Ed Sheeran’s lesser known songs, from his new album ‘Divide’. The lyrics are sweet, meaningful and perfect for a slow and romantic first dance with your new husband/wife.

*Favourite lyric snippet*

“That every night I’ll kiss you you’ll say in my ear
Oh we’re in love aren’t we?
Hands in your hair, fingers and thumbs baby
I feel safe when you’re holding me near
Love the way that you conquer your fear
You know hearts don’t break around here”

How Would You Feel

I am more than happy to admit then when I first heard this, I cried a little. I will also admit that I had a few glasses of wine that night and as a newlywed am feeling super loved up at the moment!

*Favourite lyric snippet*
“How would you feel, if I told you I loved you?
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time, spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too”

Are you a blubbering mess of romance and love right now? I know that I am! Of course this may not be to everyones taste and many people have more upbeat songs as their first dance. However if you do fancy a slow one, we reccommend a good Ed Sheeran ballad.

I hope you enjoyed reading my top 5 list of Ed Sheeran first dance songs – there is no escaping his music at the moment so we may as well go with the flow (just make sure you bring a pack of tissues first*.
