The first dance is one of the most special moments for each bride and groom. You want to choose a song that means something to you both – not just one of the cliche ballads everyone else goes for. If you can’t seem to find any middle ground with your significant other on the choice of a song, explore the tips below.
Choose the Genre First
Maybe you and your fiancé come from very different musical backgrounds and tastes. Perhaps you like Ed Sheeran’s slow love songs and your man would prefer an upbeat rock song. However, you should first agree on the genre of the song and it should be one that you both like and feel comfortable with.
Explore Different Playlists
YouTube and Spotify are two places where a future bride and groom can dive deep into because of the musical variety and playlists these two provide. They are rich libraries for music that are also full of countless suggestions.
Pick the Right Tempo
If you’re not much of a dancer and the thought of having all eyes on you as you share your first dance with your significant other terrifies you, consider something slower and relaxed. If your feet itch for a bit of dancing and you love entertaining your friends, go for something quick and lively, and maybe even prepare a little dance routine. When you and your fiancé are on the same page about the tempo, it’s much easier to pick a song.
Choose A Song Whose Meaning You Both Cherish
If the song of your choice has a deep sentimental meaning to you, it’s just going to make the moment even more special. Just imagine finding lyrics that tell your love story better than anyone else. Whatever happened between you two, there is a song out there that captures it and it might just be the perfect first dance song.
Whether you take the traditional route or a funkier one to your first dance, it is one of the best bride and groom experiences, so enjoy it to the fullest.
