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.
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.
