Tips for Choosing The Perfect First Dance Songs

The first dance is a very special moment at any wedding. The melody and lyrics of your first dance song will surely stamp itself to your memory for a very long time. After the ceremony is over, and it’s time for the celebration and merriment to commence, you need the perfect song to set the mood for a memorable reception and a first dance you’ll never forget!

  • Choose a song that tells you and your partner’s love story

When selecting the perfect song for your first dance, it is more romantic to find a song that tells your love story. To get the perfect song, you can think about how you first met, if you were friends before becoming lovers, the nature of your relationship, whether you both have a previous marriage, etc.

Basically, you should think of something that tells your story to the world. Once you’ve thought about that, you can do your research and engage in discussions with your band. Whatever the story, there’s surely a song for it out there.

  • Decide if you want old-school or contemporary music

The style of song you select for your first dance also matters a lot at your wedding reception. Decide If you want a classic or a contemporary wedding song and discuss it with your band because each style has its pros and cons.

Most classic songs are timeless; but you and your partner might not really want those and prefer their more contemporary alternatives, right? Choosing the style of the song depends mostly on what you and your partner feel most connected to. Once you’ve decided, your band can easily put something wonderful together for you.

  • Choose a song you can dance to

It’s your first dance! You need something special, something you and your partner don’t just love, but can also dance to. This will definitely create a magical moment for you two and also set the mood for your guests.

Discuss this with your band too so that they can prepare the perfect song list for you. It is best you choose a song that you and your partner feel very comfortable dancing to. Leave the rest to your band. They’ll set the stage and the mood for a party like no other!
