You and your new spouse glide onto the dance floor. The lighting is perfect. Your friends and families surrounding you with smiling faces. The face of your significant other glowing as they smile at you. The music begins...
Many people pause at that point in their wedding planning. there are so many wonderful songs to choose from! Below are three ideas to help get your started on choosing the right song for your first dance.
1. Slow Dance to a Classic Romantic Song
Not everybody feels like trying out for Dancing with the Stars, especially not on your wedding day! Your first dance can be a great opportunity to relax and connect with your partner before the reception festivities begin.
Embrace your childhood with Beauty and the Beast's "Tale as old as Time" or express how you feel with Etta Jones' "At Last. " A slow paced song can help you enjoy the sweet moment.
2. Choreographed Dance to an Upbeat and Fast Paced Song
A great way to entertain your guests and create a memborable first dance is for you and your partner to choreograph a dance routine to a fast paced well known song. It does't always have to be "Thriller." You can pick a new favorite or put together a medley of popular dance hits. Enjoy and have fun with it! You might even be able to convince your bridal party to participate as well.
3. A song that has a special significance to you and your new spouse.
It might have been a song playing in the background during your first date. It might be a song that seems to have been written about your relationship. For my wedding, I picked a song that not only portrayed the hopes we had for our marriage, but was also a song we enjoyed dancing too at our high school prom. The song was "Something Beautiful" by the Newsboys, and it was perfect for a fun fast paced first dance!
