If you’re planning a vintage wedding and are looking for a classic tune that’ll fit the vibe perfectly, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve figured out the best first dance songs for retro soirees so that you can travel back in time as you swirl and sway around the floor. P.S. even if you don’t use one of these as ‘your song’, they make for great slow dance tracks, so you may want to add a few of them to your reception playlist.
