Use date functions:
SELECT DATEADD(mm, 0, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE()))

There are other constructs, but I usually go with above as I can then adjust to previous or next months by simply changing the amount of months to add in the outer DATEADD.
-- next month on the 1st

SELECT DATEADD(mm, 1, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE()))

Sorry, I gave you the wrong one.  That is the one I use when dealing with days.  This is for month.
-- this month on the 1st

SELECT DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE()), 0)
 

-- next month on the 1st

SELECT DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE())+1, 0)

you can get date as well as day name also.





SELECT DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE()), 0) as dt,DATENAME(Dw,DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE()), 0)) as DayName

 
 

SELECT DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE())+1, 0),DATENAME(dw,DATEADD(mm, DATEDIFF(mm, 0, GETDATE())+1, 0)) as dayname
