What about Leather and Lace by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley? We almost used that one but we both love Wonderwall by Oasis too much. If you google classic rock first dance songs a ton of websites show up! Good luck!

A few we’re considering from Classic Rock:

Aerosmith – Don’t Want to Miss a Thing (my pick)

REO Speedwagon – Can’t Fight this Feeling Anymore (FI likes this one)

Journey – Open Arms

Bryan Adams – Have you Ever Really Loved a Woman

Doesn’t get more classic rock than Rolling Stones – how ’bout “Wild Horses”?  Fiance just asked to add “Moondance” by Van Morrison to our wedding playlist, and I could see that being a fun first dance song, too…I also love Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” and Queen “I Was Born to Love You”.

@Jennlee:  Growing up, Bryan Adams “Everything I do” was my favorite song for some reason…we are considering this as our first dance song! 

Commenting to follow the suggestions!! 🙂

Ours is Thank you for loving me by  Bon Jovi. I love it because not many people have heard it and I have never heard it as a first dance song at a wedding!
