As an instrumentalist my list might vary from singing performers, however some favourites include:
Of course this choice is completely up to you! If you have a song which is meaningful to you as a couple then that would also be a great choice.
As a DJ, each wedding I do, couples select their own song, there are not too many double ups.
Some of the ones that have been requested are:
Feels Like Home - Chantal Kreviazuk
This I promise you - Ronan Keating
Unforgettable - Nat "King" Cole
Holding You - Stan Walker & Ginny Blackmore
Perfect - Ed Sheeran (also a version with Beyonce)
I Won't Give up - Jason Mraz
Angels - Robbie Williams
Shallow - Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper
I would recommend a song that has some special meaning for you both and conveys the message you want for each other.

Always very personal choice but here are a few we loved performing:
To build a home - Cinematic Orchestra
Saviing all my love for you - Whitney Houston
So into you - Tamia
She moved through the fair - Irish traditional
Here's some suggestions that are a bit left of centre rather than stock standard
Sydney, Australia and NSW
There are some classic choices that we have found to be very popular such as Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud , At Last (Etta James), La Vie en Rose, and All of Me. That said sometimes adapting an atypical song is even more crowd-pleasing. We have done our own versions of 80's electro pop, Kate Bush, tangos, you name it. Ultimately the song should be special to you and not too fast, we'll do the rest to adapt it perfectly for this setting. That's the beauty of live music for your first dance :)

The first dance is a beautiful and very personal moment between the couple. We always suggest picking a song to suit your tastes. To give you some examples, these are the songs the couples from our four weddings this week have chosen.
Christina Perri – A Thousand Years
Skylar Grey – Stand By Me
Lior – This Old Love
James Arthur – Say You Won’t Let Go
Adelaide & Regional South Australia
All My Life – KC & JoJo
Amazed – Lonestar
Can’t Help Falling In Love – Elvis Presley
Everything I Do – Bryan Adams
I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing - Aerosmith
Stand By Me – Ben E. King
That’s Amore – Dean Martin
Unchained Melody – Righteous Brothers
What A Wonderful World – Louis Armstrong
You’re the Inspiration – Chicago
