Your first dance is nothing to stress out about! Here are some helpful tips on choosing a song for your big day. Once you have picked a song, the rest is easy. Ask yourself a few simple questions:
Do we have “a song?” You know a song that has been in your life and reminds you of something, one that says something about you or makes you feel a certain way. If the answer is YES….USE IT! Your dance instructor will find a way to make it work on the dance floor. Every song is danceable!
Are we a traditional couple with a classic and timeless vibe?
Look confident and elegant to any of the following songs. Pull at guests heart strings with songs they are familiar with and may have danced to themselves.
