Most Popular First Dance Wedding Songs Ireland


As the year comes to a close we reflect on this year’s most popular first dance wedding songs:

We’ve compiled a list of the most requested songs at Irish weddings this year; according to Rising Music Agency artists; Tiny Lions & Infinity

The common thread between all bands was Ed Sheeran, the hit machine is a natural at churning out wedding friendly songs. Thinking Out Loud, Perfect and Shape of You all featured on our lists.

Home grown talent also featured heavily; Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars was a popular first dance in Ireland as well as the Van Morrison Classic – Brown Eyed Girl. Kodaline’s The One was a hot contender for most requested wedding song as was the ever popular Glen Hansard – Falling Slowly.

High up the list were classics like

  • Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling In Love
  • Etta James – At Last
  • John Legend – All of me
  • Shania Twain – You’re Still The One

We often get asked if our wedding bands know the song. We work with extremely talented and professional artists here at Rising Music Agency and given enough notice (and within reason) they can learn any song for your big day.

Infinity welcome all requests from couples. The moving Derek Ryan ballad God’s Plan has proved a dance floor favorite for the band.
