How To Choose Your First Dance Song

Choosing the song for the first dance at your wedding is never easy.

After all, there are a million songs out there and narrowing down your options can take some time.

Luckily, there are some things to think about that can make everything that little bit easier.

Is There a Song That Means Something to You As a Couple?

A lot of couples have one or two songs that really mean something to them; perhaps it was the first song you heard together or perhaps it signifies a special time in your relationship.

If you do, consider whether that song would work well as a first dance song.

Not only will it be meaningful, but it’s one that will continue to hold great memories for you both.

Do You Share a Favourite Song?

If there’s a song that you both love, think about whether it would work as a first dance song.

Though not every song will, you may be lucky to find that you both share a favourite song that’s ideal for a slow dance.

This will make choosing your first dance song a lot easier, as it’s a song that you both already love.

Have You Done Some Research?

There’s a lot of information out there to help with choosing the first dance song for a wedding, including long lists of recommended songs.

If you’re really struggling to find a song that works for you, consider whether you have done enough research.

A little bit of research could lead to you finding a great song in no time.

Who is Your Favourite Band or Artist?

If there aren’t any songs that immediately stand out as being what you want for your first dance, think about your favourite bands and artists.

Go through their biggest hits, your favourite songs and their albums.

You may find that a song strikes you as being perfect.

Though choosing a first dance song can be difficult, it doesn’t have to be a stressful experience.

Instead, approach it as an enjoyable part of planning your big day.
