Things to remember!!

Is the beat of the dance something you feel comfortable dancing to on your wedding night in front of people, is it too quick, too slow or just right?

If you’re having a band, can they play this how you want it? (If not maybe use a cd/laptop for the first dance)

If you’re having a DJ do they have the correct version?

The song you do your first dance to does not have to be ‘Your Song’. you don’t even need ‘a song’, not every couple has one.

You don’t have to love your first dance song, as long as you like it for that moment that’s all that matters!

If you don’t want a slow traditional song then you don’t have to pick one! More and more couples are choosing a fun upbeat song everyone can enjoy.
