That’s why, here at Bill Pence Music, we have put together a few tips to assist you in choosing a first dance song for your own wedding day. If you want your first dance to be memorable, be sure to keep reading to discover how it can be:

  • Let the song tell your love story. There is no doubt that the world is filled with incredible love songs. But, there are very few that can relate to your own love story. Finding a song that reflects your relationship personally is a way to honor your bond with your partner. A song that relates to your own experiences together makes the difference between a love song and your love song.
  • Let your uniqueness shine. Above all else, it’s important to remember that it’s your wedding day, and you and your partner can do whatever you want to make it special for you. If you don’t enjoy the classic first dance songs, such as At Last by Etta James, you can choose something more unconventional or upbeat, such as Dancing in the Moonlight by Toploader. These unique moments will be what you remember most! Choosing a song that is more upbeat allows you to make a bold statement, allowing you to truly enjoy your unique first dance together.
  • Common interests. Although you and your partner are perfect for each other, it’s still completely possible for you to enjoy different genres of music. The key to agreeing on a song in a timely and peaceful manner, is to first determine a genre that you both enjoy. From there, you can begin narrowing down your options.
