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 is glowing as they smile at you. The music begins...
Choosing the perfect song for your first dance can be challenging because there are so many wonderful songs to choose from! Here are three ideas to help get your started on choosing the perfect music for your first dance.
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.
Sway back and forth to some Ed Sheeran, 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.
Choreographed Dance to an Upbeat and Fast Paced Song
A great way to entertain your guests and create a memorable first dance is for you and your partner to choreograph a dance routine to a fast paced and well known song. And It doesn’t 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.
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 to at our high school prom. The song was "Something Beautiful" by the Newsboys, and it was perfect for a fun and upbeat first dance!
