When first looking at the song choice decide whether you are looking for something that perhaps reminds you of a particular event in your life together so far or one that has a special meaning for you or perhaps you are looking for something more upbeat and fun that you can choreograph some sort of routine to. Once you have decided on the purpose of the song everything else will start to slot into place. It is perfectly ok to pick a song that will make everyone want to join you on the dance floor just as it is to pick a song that holds special meaning for you as a couple. Not everyone has to like your choice it is just about the two of you.

Next it is worth thinking about how you are having music played at your reception and factor in how the band or DJ is going to source and play the particular song that you have chosen. Of course, it doesn’t mean that just because you have chosen a jazz band to play and want to have a Katherine Jenkins classic as your first dance that you should compromise on either. It just means you can make alternative arranges such as sourcing a CD player for your first dance.

Finally, don’t stress out about your choice. It doesn’t have to be a song that is some big declaration of your feeling for each other – that is what your wedding is – and you don’t have to be upset because you don’t have a ‘song’ that is something special to you as a couple. What is most important is that the song makes you happy and you will be happy dancing along to it with your newly wed partner in front of your family and friends. Much like every other element of your weeding the first dance song should add to your day not been the main focus.

Now go sort through your CD collection or flick through your Apple playlist and find a list of those songs that are contenders for you.
