It can take months to find the perfect first dance song.
Your first dance song will be the one that you define as “yours” for the rest of your lives together.
But no panic! We can help you with this practical guide.
Maybe you’re a low key couple in search of a simple slow dance. Or would you rather go classic rock?
Whether you have a band or DJ, they should be able to provide you with a close proximity to the song you request.
1. Find A Common Musical Interest
However you have decided to share the planning for your big day, choosing your first dance song is definitely something to do together. Sometimes,
opposites really do attract, so it’s possible that you and your fiancé don’t share the same taste in music. You both need to love the song and
be happy dancing to it, so take some time to listen and make a shortlist of what works best for both of you.
2. Make it personal
Many brides and grooms think that their first dance song needs to be romantic and emotional.
Some couples buck the trend and prefer to choose a first dance song that is personal to their relationship.

dancing to your first dance song.

4. Be Unconventional
Classic songs that are used for weddings time and time again may
seem clichéd choices. This is a great opportunity to express yourself and your relationship with the love of your life.
Deciding whether to go the traditional or funky route all depends on what you feel connected to as a couple.
At the end you can ask all of the other guests to join you at the end of the dance to make it more fun. Keep in mind that if you and your hubby have a personal connection to a particular song, your guests will feel the love that you radiate on the dance floor, even if it’s not a “typical” first dance song.

You’d be surprised how many DJs only have one copy of a song, be it the original, a newer cover or a remix.
