Not sure what song you’d like for your first dance? We recommend first thinking on what mood you’d like for your first dance… classic and traditional, fun, crowd pleaser, or romantic? Deciding this and talking with your fiancé about favorite music genres and bands, or looking through your music collections will help prompt ideas. Choose something that reflects your own style and personality.
As part of a complimentary wedding dance consultation, we can suggest dance styles that fit well with your song ideas, which might help you further decide. We can also let you know which songs may be tricky because of a slow or changing tempo, or whether a song might be an easy or challenging selection for whatever reason.
