The First Dance

Here are some great songs for the bride and groom. The “first dance” is likely the most popular part of a wedding reception. Every guest waits in anticipation to see the lovely couple take their first dance together. First dances are always the signal to all guests that it time to get the party started. Some couples like to pick a traditional song, others like to pick a special song that means something to them and more recently there is even a trend towards all out dance showcases by couples who do all sorts of fun things. Whatever the choice, we hope the list below is a good start for finding the perfect song for your first dance. Personally, at Team Wedding we recommend choosing a song that really is yours. Digging deep into what speaks to your love and relationship can be beautiful. Please take your time with this and try not to focus as much on how well you will dance the song. If it is your song, it will come through. I invite you to trust yourselves that it will be perfect regardless of your dancing skills or not!
