There are so many important decisions a couple has to make when it comes to organizing their wedding and one of them surely refers to choosing the best first dance wedding songs. The music is the one that sets the mood for the evening party and the first song, the one you will dance to, has the power of giving your big event a tone.

There are three ways of making this selection. The first one implies that you let the task to the hands of a professional band. They are generally quite expensive and, even though they know their ways around the musical instruments, they will still have to consult you as to what would be the most appropriate song for the first dance. Your second option is a DJ who will surely be a blessing to your budget and also very entertaining.
You could simply tell him whether you want a romantic, slow song or more modern one and he will undoubtedly find the right one. But sadly, most of us are control freaks, especially when it comes to events of such grand importance. So, the best and safest way is to put together the play list yourselves.
You will have to listen to a lot of songs before you decide upon the right one to have for your first dance as Mr. and Mrs., and if you lack the time to do so, we have a few suggestions you might want to consider.
The Elvis Presley’s classic ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ is a home run. Romantic, with a touching message and a nice rhythm it will probably even make your some of the guests shed some tears. It is a sure way to impress, even if you are not the king of the dance floor.
The talent of Frank Sinatra needs not further introduction or recommendation, therefore ‘As Time Goes By’ would make a great first dance song as it will create a special moment.
If you would like something more challenging for your dance skills you have a good option in Linda Ronstadt’s ‘Don’t Know Much’. Your guest will all be smiling with joy while you are living the time of your lives.
If you happen to know a song that is more actual, with a good vibe and nice lyrics you should not hesitate to dance to it. Originality is very much appreciated and well, you do not have to settle for the oldies only, no matter how goldies they say they are.
