The most popular first wedding dance songs in the world have been revealed after a new study.

Artists in the top 10 included stars such as Michael Bublé, Adele, Ed Sheeran and Etta James.

New research for 2020, carried out by Jewellerybox, looked into user-created Spotify lists to find which songs have been used the most.

The results found that Christina Perri's 'A Thousand Years' was "the world's favourite wedding dance song", appearing on 46 playlists.

In total, Ed Sheeran appeared 133 times throughout the playlists, with Jason Mraz appearing 79 times with hits such as 'Lucky', 'I'm Yours' and 'I Won't Give Up'.

Nathan Amery, Head of Digital Marketing at Jewellerybox said: "The first dance song is one of the most important parts of wedding planning.

"It may not be a key part of the structure such as transport or dresses, but your first dance song can define the first moments of marriage and will be a trigger for the rest of your married lives.

"Be sure to stay true to you and your partner and your past together, but most of all don't forget to have fun and show your personalities. You will recall your first dance for the rest of your lives so make your song choice a memorable one."
