Top tips to choosing the best first dance song for your big day
August 31, 2016
Your first dance is representative for your entire relationship. It’s your entire love story told in a few minutes, on melodious dance steps, in front of everyone you love and appreciate. Yes, it’s only natural that you want everything about your wedding first dance to be simply flawless – but how do you do that? Even more, how do you choose the best first dance song for your big day?
Here are some tips to remember:
Decide on whether you want this song to be classic or contemporary. Depending on what defines you as a couple and on the wedding style you have chosen, both classic and contemporary songs can be amazing choices for a first dance.
Decide on how danceable the song is. We cannot emphasize this enough: the song you choose should be really easy to dance to. Unless you are really great with dancing, you might find it more difficult to learn the choreography for a tune that’s not danceable.
Decide on what makes it personal. You may think your first dance song has to be really romantic, but the truth is that this will depend on who you are as a couple. After all, this song is there to celebrate your love story – so it’s definitely OK to pick something that might not be as “traditional” if that’s what defines you.
Last but definitely not least, decide to choose this song together. It takes two for a wedding, and your future life partner needs to like this song just as much as you do. Talk about it, see what you both like and pick a song you both really love.
