  1. "Barbie Girl" by Aqua: Picture this: you and your beloved, dressed in your finest attire, dancing to this cheesy '90s pop hit. It may induce more cringes than romantic vibes, so let's save Barbie for another occasion.

  2. Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot: While it may be a catchy tune to dance to at a party, your first dance might not be the best time to celebrate "booty appreciation." Let's keep this one on the playlist for later in the evening when everyone's ready to let loose.

  3. "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston: Wait, hold on a second! Before you jump to conclusions, we need to clarify. Whitney Houston's iconic ballad is indeed a beautiful song. However, attempting to imitate her powerhouse vocals (even for a professional in your wedding band!) might lead to some unintended comedic moments. Proceed with caution.

  4. "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor: Wait, what? Why would this classic empowerment anthem make it onto the cringey list? Well, while it's a fabulous song, it might give off the wrong impression if interpreted as a message of defiance or survival within the context of a first dance. Let's reserve it for karaoke night instead.

There you have it—our top 4 most cringey first dance songs. Remember, the goal of your first dance is to create a romantic and memorable moment that reflects your love story. Steer clear of these cringe-inducing choices and opt for a song that truly resonates with you and your partner.
