Choosing a First Wedding Dance Song

There are SO many steps and little details when it comes to planning! After all the “big stuff” is out of the way like booking vendors, the details, picking a dress and tux… it comes down to the little details like picking first dance songs, reception entrance songs, seating charts, etc. To some choosing a first dance song is easy, but to others it may take a little more thought!

The first dance is one of the most important parts of the day! You and your partner are in the middle of the dance floor surrounded by all your loved ones as they watch you dance together for the first time as a married couple! Sooo obviously the song needs to be perfect for you both and that special moment.
