How to Choose the Perfect Song

One of the most memorable moments of any Wedding is the First Dance. This is the moment where the newlyweds take centre stage and share their first dance together as a married couple. Choosing the right song for this special moment is crucial as it sets the tone for the rest of the evening. Here are our top tips on how to choose the perfect song your First Dance at your Wedding:

Think about what you like

The first step in choosing your first dance is to consider your personal preferences. Think about your favourite songs or artists and try to find a song that you both love. If you have a specific genre or era of music that you both enjoy, that can be a great starting point. Checking out some Spotify playlists is a great way to find some inspiration.

Think about the lyrics

The lyrics of the song you choose are important, as they will set the tone for the rest of the reception. Make sure the lyrics are appropriate for the occasion and that they reflect the mood you want to create. If you’re not sure about the lyrics, look them up and read them carefully before making your final decision.

Consider the tempo and rhythm

The tempo and rhythm of the song you choose will also play a role in setting the mood for your reception. Think about whether you want a slow, romantic dance or a more upbeat and energetic one. Keep in mind that you don’t have to stick to just one tempo or rhythm for your first dance. You could start with a slow song and then transition into a more upbeat one to get the party started.

Practice beforehand

Once you’ve chosen your song, it’s a good idea to practice your first dance beforehand. This will help you feel more comfortable and confident on the dance floor, and it will also ensure that you’re both on the same page when it comes to the dance moves. If you’re not sure how to dance, consider taking a dance class or watching online tutorials to get some ideas. Also think about whether you want to dance to the whole song yourselves, or if you want to invite your guests up to join you halfway through.

Ask your DJ

Your Wedding DJ is an expert in music and entertainment, so don’t be afraid to ask for their advice when it comes to choosing your First Dance. They may have suggestions for songs or artists that you haven’t thought of, and they can also help you with the logistics of the dance, such as timing and lighting. They might even be able to help put together a custom mix for you.

Choosing the right First Dance song is not always an easy part of the planning process but it is so important to get right. Take your time and don’t be scared to change your mind if you are not 100% happy. If there is anything we can do to help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


What Customers Said...


Thank you Ross you're a fabulous DJ! Ross provided our disco at the Mabie for our wedding on Saturday. Everyone had a dance and we even had a go at some Scottish dance's but unfortunately we were rubbish. Such a lovely guy!

Hayley & Pete Savage

Hi Ross, You were amazing. We couldn't have had a better piper/DJ! We had so many compliments about you from our guests and the ceilidh was fantastic! When we told people we were having it they said they wouldn't participate but they did! Thank you so so much - we want to do the party again. You were great with dealing with my last minute disorganised requests (i.e cake cutting and throwing the bouquet!) can't put in words how great it all was. You even catered for my Dutch family. Can't thank you enough!

Kimberley & Shane Corani

We had Ross for our wedding disco on Friday night at Easterbrook hall, it was a brilliant night plenty of compliments from guests with the dance floor never empty ???? great choice in music and just a generally a nice guy

Louise & Mathew Bell

We asked Ross to be a piper through the day and DJ at night for our big day on 13th of July. He went above and beyond all of our expectations and made life so easy for us. He couldn’t do enough for us to make sure our day was perfect, even when it came to last minute changes and decisions he was able to help us out. His online system for choosing songs was so easy to use and made sure all the songs we wanted to be played were so. Can’t thank him enough for everything he did and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for this service at an event!

David & Rowan Thomson

You were absolutely fantastic. The dance floor was full all night and everyone was saying how good the disco was. Thank you for all your hard work.
