Choosing your wedding first dance song – Make it a Dance to Remember!


It is funny when a couple has to choose the song for their first dance. This can often cause an argument. Sometimes one will want a sentimental song that means something to their relationship or the other may just want a simple love song or others just don’t know where to begin.

I polled some of my former clients and friends that recently got married and asked them how they chose the song for their first dance; some of the responses given were very interesting:

– “It was the very first song that we danced together to”
– “When I heard the song on the radio it reminded me of our relationship”
– “It is by our favourite singer”

Choosing the song for your first dance needs to be something that means something to you as a couple, there is no right or wrong answer to what you choose. As long as it not a song that is offensive to people.

Try to avoid songs that have lewd content or swearing as your guests may be put off by the song.

If you are looking to find the perfect song for your first dance here are some suggestions for you:
