The First Dance Song You Should Play On Your Wedding Day, By Zodiac Sign
Love, Zodiac

What wedding song will define your big day and your first dance together as husband and wife?

Your wedding day is a BIG day for you — obviously. But even though you definitely already know that, you should still celebrate a little bit right now because getting married is crazy exciting!

Not only are you marrying the love of your life, but you are becoming one with your soulmate. So, of course, you'll need a first dance wedding song that expresses how you feel. 

I'm not big into marriage and weddings myself (that's the Aquarius in me talking), but I do still love geeking out whenever I hear about someone getting ready to tie the knot — engagements, in particular, are my kryptonite.

Everyone wants to meet the person they will spend their life loving, and when you find someone that you're compatible with in so many ways including zodiac sign needs, it's a beautiful thing. 

I can never watch or hear about an engagement without getting chills and tearing up a little bit.

What can I say? Engagements are one of the ultimate expressions of love to me!

But just because you and your partner have decided to get married, the most stressful part of your wedding is just beginning.

You have to not only prepare to get all of your finances and things in order so you can live as a married couple, but you also have to put in a ton of work for your actual wedding.

Even if you're planning something low-key, you still need to do the planning, like a guest list, the destination, the reception, and most importantly, the musical playlist.

There are usually two routes people take when putting together a playlist for their wedding.

Some opt for the live band who will do covers of all of your favorite songs throughout the reception, while others decide to go with DJ.

My advice? If you decide to go with a DJ, definitely have a set playlist in mind so that you don't get a drunk uncle requesting some awful song that gives everyone else in the room secondhand embarrassment.

Trust me, you think it might not get that bad, but it will; don't run the risk of someone ruining one part of your reception with bad songs when everyone else just wants to enjoy the wedding as a whole.

But whether you decide to go with the DJ or the live music, there is one part of your wedding playlist that means more than any embarrassing song someone can request: your wedding song.

Your wedding song is the song that you and your new spouse will first dance to as a new couple; the one everyone will watch you dance to as a new couple.

So, needless to say, there's going to be a little pressure here. But don't worry!

The most important thing to remember is that this is YOUR song; the song you and your partner will remember years from now as the one you played at your wedding as you looked into each other's eyes and slow danced together.

There are a lot of romantic songs to choose from, trust me I know how hard it can be. Where do you even start?!

Well, one good place to start is to use astrology as a way to point you in the right direction.

Based on your zodiac sign, here is the song you should play on your wedding day; the song that will make you fall in love with your partner over and over, no matter how many times you hear it.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you're an all-or-nothing kind of person who wants to put everything you have into your relationship.

When you finally set a date for your wedding and you're getting everything perfect for your big day, you want to make sure that the wedding song you choose really encompasses everything your feeling — from the lyrics to the emotion in the singer's voice.

All Of Me by John Legend is one of those songs that gives you goosebumps when you hear it. Your wedding day is the ultimate expression of your love and this song really ties the whole thing together. When you're out there on the dance floor with your brand new spouse, this is the song that is going to really bring the whole day to a beautiful close.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you are a very romantic person in general, but when it comes to love and relationships, you tend to be the horoscope sign that goes all out. Your main goal for your wedding day is to inject all of the romance you feel in your heart into the song you choose.

You know that when it's just you and your partner out there on the dance floor that nothing else matters, so you want to choose wisely. Can't Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley is perfect for you and your new spouse because it's a classic song about love.

Elvis' voice is sultry and romantic, and with the lyrics saying exactly what you're feeling, you know that your big day will be memorable and lovely. There are a lot of different versions of this song out there, but Elvis' rendition is the one you feel most connected to.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, you like bringing a little playfulness no matter what situation you're in and your wedding day is no different. You want to choose a wedding song that perfectly describes how finding the love of your life and being sure of that choice makes you want to celebrate.

And with your spouse by your side, you'd probably be happy with any song, but with this one, you will definitely find what you're looking for. I Was Made To Love Her by Stevie Wonder is the perfect song for you and your new partner to dance to because Stevie Wonder's bright voice and beautiful lyrics really relate to your big day.

You want a song with a beat, something you can really see yourself dancing to (because you love to have fun) and this song, paired with the very obvious lyrics of falling in love, is the perfect match for you and your perfect match.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, your wedding day is a day that you have been thinking of since you were very young, so now that it has finally arrived, you want to make sure that everything is perfect – down to every single song on your wedding playlist.

You want your partner and everyone else in the room to know just how much this big day of yours means to you. Just because the ceremony probably did that doesn't mean your reception can't, as well.

Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran is that song; a song so romantic that you might just shed a tear when you hear it. And that's kind of the emotion that you're looking for on your wedding day.

Granted, you will probably shed more than a few tears before the night is over, but if the wedding song you choose can make everyone else in the room shed happy tears, you know you've made the right choice.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, your wedding day is huge for you because you want to make sure that everything is perfect — from the clothes you wear to the decorations in the reception hall to the music playlist and everything in between.

Your main goal is to make an impression on every single person in the room and to take your partner's breath away. But even though planning your big day has turned you into a serious person, you still want to make sure that the song you choose captures your personality.

You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne is an upbeat and beautiful song; much like your personality, in fact! You want a fun song that will make you smile as much as it reminds you what love is all about: finding your "best thing" in your new spouse.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you have spent your entire life cultivating the perfect relationship with your partner and now that it's your wedding day, you couldn't be more excited to throw a celebration to prove just how happy you are with this one person.

So, when it comes to choosing the perfect song for your perfect day, you want something that will show your partner just how much they mean to you. Your Song by Elton John is THE song for you.

You want a song that will give you chills and is really just the perfect way to express to your partner just how much this day means to you. You also love the fact that this song can be both "your song" with your partner, as well as the song you're dedicating to your favorite person.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you have also been one of those zodiac signs that has been waiting for their wedding day since they were young. And now that your big day has finally arrived, you want to make sure that everything is symbolic and meaningful — this is the day two souls are being joined as one, after all!

And along with the wedding rings symbolizing this joining, you want your wedding song to do the same. For you, the song you choose has to really have meaningful lyrics; it can't just sound pretty when you and your spouse dance together.

I'll Be Your Mirror by The Velvet Underground is the perfect song for you because not only is it both cute and romantic, but it's also the perfect way to express how much love you have in your heart and how much you want to be there for your partner no matter what life brings.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Congratulations, Scorpio! Today is your big day and there is honestly no one happier or more pumped to get hitched than you. You obviously want this day to be perfect, but you also know that it's already going to be perfect because you'll be with the one you love most.

Of course, you still want that one perfect song to sum up the whole day for you, so you want to make sure that you choose wisely. There probably isn't anyone else in the world that has as much passion and soul for love as you do, except Otis Redding.

His song, That's How Strong My Love Is, is the song for you and your spouse, guaranteed. It perfectly expresses just how strong your love for your partner is. If you want a song that is full of emotion and passion, this is it. It's the song you can dance to with your partner really close together while the rest of the world falls away.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Life is full of ups and downs, but you already knew that, Sagittarius. Your wedding day is extra special for you because it's like life is congratulating you for being able to push through heartbreak and loss and find the one you want to be with forever.

So, when it comes to choosing that perfect wedding song, you want something that really captures you. Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey is that song.

The lyrics really resonate with you because no matter where life takes you, you want to remember your wedding song as the one that will express to your partner that you will always be connected or together in some way. You don't want a conventional wedding song because you're an out-of-the-box kind of person yourself.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you have been dreaming of your wedding day since your parents told you just how special their big day was. You have always wanted a traditional wedding because to you, that is the ultimate expression of love.

That is also why you want to choose a traditionally beautiful song to dance to at your wedding; the right song will make your heart feel full and happy. For that reason, you should definitely choose At Last by Etta James for your wedding song.

It's a beautiful and classic song that will still feel like it was meant only for you and your partner on your big day. The lyrics are simple and thoughtful, and they really express how happy and in love you feel at your wedding. You don't want a song that's flashy or too modern, so this song is perfect for you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you're not usually a marriage type of person (and you still might not be), so when you do decide to get married, you want to make sure that your wedding is as unlike a wedding as possible.

If you can put your own spin on your big day in any way possible, then you will definitely try – including making sure that when everyone hears your wedding song, they immediately think of you.

You especially like Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You by Lauryn Hill for that exact reason. It's a modern take on a classic, romantic song because the original message of love when Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons first sang it is still there but having a more current singer sing it makes it so you.

You want something to express your love without picking something everyone will choose. You're excited about your big day, but you're not one for the conventional wedding (or wedding song).

Your main goal for your wedding song is to let your partner know just how happy you are about spending the rest of your life with them. This song is crazy romantic and definitely swoon-worthy, so everyone in attendance will get the significance of this song for you.
