It’s that time to conquer our Spring Wedding Chores which include sharing our updated list for clients to get ideas for their first dance. Here are some tips and guidelines we find useful when choosing the song for your wedding dance.

CHOOSING THE SONG

One of the most memorable moments of any wedding is the first dance. The first dance and song can tell a whole story about a couples relationship, so it’s important to choose the song and dance cautiously.  Be sure that the chosen song is realistic for your wedding style and theme while making sure you will be able to learn a dance to the beat! Make it your own by selecting a song that fits your personality. Some of our couples come into the dance studio to try a lesson before making a decision on a song. Trying a few dance styles can help you make your final song selection. 

TAKE TIME TO THINK ABOUT THE SONG

If you and your partner have different music tastes choosing the first wedding dance song can be difficult, so there must be a compromise between both people. Reminisce on the relationship and make sure to choose a song that you will want to dance to forever. Remember if you tire quickly from listening to the same song then make sure to choose one that never gets old.
